Deidre McIntosh, who we first meet in Mia King's debut novel, GOOD THINGS, is back in TABLE MANNERS. The very talented and creative foodie, has put the past behind her and is looking ahead to new ways to promote herself and launch a new line of cookies. Everything is going well in her business and her love life until the ultra-gorgeous and sophisticated ex-fiance of HER boyfriend, Sabine, appears on the scene. That's when things start to heat up!

I really enjoyed this book not only for the fun, romantic story and the great character development but also for the creative ways Deidre found to solve what seemed like impossible situations and for the amazing recipes at the end of the book.

Even though TABLE MANNERS is a sequel to GOOD THINGS, the story can stand alone and is a perfect summer read!

I loved how Table Manners was written, if you had read Good Things you could quickly put the two stories together, but you didn't need to have read the first book to enjoy this one. Great plot and character development. It was a book that I couldn't put down.

I had intended to read the book while exercising and camping, but I never got to do that because I finished reading it before I even made it to the gym...I just couldn't put it down until I was done.

I'm glad to hear that I won't have to wait long for Mia's next book!

Format: Paperback
"Table Manners," by Mia King, is like a light, airy and double delicious chocolate mousse...that, yes, leaves you craving for more; wouldn't it be nice to get a sequel, perhaps? In fact, it was only after I read the book that I learned that "Table Manners" was a sequel to Mia's 2006 book "Good Things." Obviously, you do not have to read "Good Things" as a prerequisite.

Anyway, the book targets a 40ish audience and unveils a main character Deidre who is sweet, utterly smart and, oh, so hip and mod. I went beyond what I interpreted as, at times, shallowness and appreciated the fact that I did not have to over think Deidre's motives, desires and, basically, the things that make her tick. This, in most part, goes for the other characters, too.

What I also like is that the author accentuates the positive aspects of her characters. There is even hope for villainous Marla. This element is a refreshing one, especially in a world that seems fueled by the media's penchant for the macabre vision of life.

Characters aside, Mia's strongest suit is plot development. Each element of surprise that the author creates enticed me to devour the book swiftly and fully. Who, after all, would not sail through "Table Manners"? Mia cranks up the volume with a witty and sitcom-ish style. What could possibly go wrong, goes wrong in Deidre's world. Whether she bakes an array of botched up cookies or misinterprets the motives of her boyfriend, I could not help but languish over each page. The book's ending offers a good surprise punch...sequel, Mia, please! The best part is that after readers finish reading the book, they can test out the recipes offered at the end. Good books, like good food, make for a delicious life worth living...just mind your manners!

This is a great stand alone book. Of course, I would highly recommend reading Good Things also to get a better sense of everyone. But I like this book better because it embraces more characters. Marla, Deidre's boyfriend's evil sister and TV rival, gets a good dose of the story and some actual character development. It's nice focusing on these other characters because Deidre is a little neurotic and crazy at times. But that's important too - she is not made to change per se. She grows as a person, but doesn't change completely. I enjoyed this book, despite the hideous 'ex-fiance shows up' scenario which is pretty 'meh.' It highlights Deidre's tendancy to overthink and not simply communicate with her boyfriend. But, it is a fun book you will enjoy reading. Sometimes that is just what you want.

When I first opened this book I quickly realized I would not be able to put it down. We enter the life of Deidre McIntosh and get so swept up with her you find yourself pulling for her. She is the "girl next door" and the protagonist in the story. As I turned each page I could not get enough of her. This is a very light-hearted read and you will find yourself falling in love with the characters and wanting more.

I couldn't even get through the first 100 pages when I decided to just throw the book into the trash. I can't honestly say there's a single character that I really even liked - and too many that I did not. The writing could be described as "light summer reading", but I just think it's bad. The characters are so two-dimensional as to be caricatures. I was fooled by the good reviews in this site -- I should have gotten it at the library and not wasted $14.

I was so pleased to find that there was a sequel to Good Things by Mia King! I just love the character of Deidre and can't wait to see what happens next. The fact that she is a strong woman, that can stand on her own, with a little help from her friends, is a great thing to read about in today's society. Mia is an exceptional writer and I look forward to book #4!
