50 in 2012: Book Twenty Eight

Angelina's Bachelors: A Novel with FoodAngelina’s Bachelors: A Novel with Food by Brian O’Reilly

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Only pages into the book, Angelina’s husband Frank goes downstairs to putter around the kitchen in search of a midnight snack, as he often does when he can’t sleep; however, on this night, he does not return. Suffering a heart attack, he dies alone, quietly while Angelina sleeps upstairs. She discovers his motionless body the next morning.

Stunned, shocked, and heart-broken Angelina is forced to pick up the pieces and move on. Having given up her dreams of culinary school to care for her sick parents, she finds a miraculous offer presented to her: cook for a neighboring bachelor, breakfast and dinner, for a monthly salary. Before she knows it, she is cooking for a full house. The men quickly become family to her and care for her when she needs it the most…

A super easy read. Cute story. Dying to try many of the recipes included in the book.

    I discovered your blog thru another project-lifer (always looking for inspiration for my pages) but also am loving your book reviews. I have read a number of your selections as well, and agree with your ratings. (I’m the one who commented couple week ago on The Winter Sea as one of my favorites this year). I have added your top rated selections onto my reading list and wanted to share a couple of my top rated if you haven’t read these yet:

    Keys to the Castle by Donna Bell
    Learning to Breathe by Karen White…just finished and LOVED LOVED

    they are both beautifully written..and while I checked them out of the library, I have them on my buy list as they are both those books you will want to reread. thanks!
