Augusta "Gus" Simpson, a Martha Stewart-esque TV cooking personality, has come a long way since her husband died suddenly, leaving her to raise and support their two daughters on her own. Channeling her grief into hard work, she carved a successful career out of her natural talents as a chef and hostess. But now, as she approaches 50, she finds that her well-earned turf may not be as secure as she thought. A hot young Latin beauty queen with a flair for spices and an ambition for stardom is threatening to steal her spot on the Cooking Channel. As Gus struggles to remake herself for a new age of media, she discovers that her entire life may need a makeover, including her relationship with her daughters and, perhaps, another chance at romance.

Fun read. A great inside look into Food TV. The characters are quirky and Gus is a character for we older gals to enjoy.

A stand alone title from Kate Jacobs, the author of The Friday night knitting club. Fifty something cooking show host, Gus Simpson, faces rating challenges from the cooking show network and must work with a much younger woman to re-vamp the show. Along the way she learns face loss and love. Entertaining and a different venue from the knitting series this author also does, which was getting a little maudlin.
