The book is perfect chick lit. The basic premise is that Rachel gets divorced, Rachel gets sad, Rachel cooks, Rachel blogs, Rachel dates, etc. In some ways it's your standard chick lit fodder. The joy is in the details with Life From Scratch, though. You like Rachel. It's fun to read about what she's doing. You actually start to care about her. The approach is great. It's a fresh, fun, fast read. And if you are like me, you end up really pissed at author Melissa Ford for ending the book where she does. Rumor has it she's writing a sequel, though, so we'll soon learn what happens to Rachel after that.
There is scant detail here, I know, but the joy of this one is in grabbing it off the shelf when you need a good, fast, light read and piggishly downing it in a sitting or two. So, what are you waiting for?
