Library Journal Review

Jacobs's cheery follow-up to the best-selling Friday Night Knitting Club (soon to be a feature film starring Julia Roberts) is another multigenerational tale with broad appeal, one tracking the personal and professional tribulations of a popular celebrity chef and her two twentysomething daughters. While the secondary story lines are at times a bit thin, Barbara Rosenblat's (www. barbararosenblat.com) ebullient narration and the string of happy endings make this a good choice for popular collections.
