As you can imagine the story revolves around food. So if you enjoy foody stories and especially all these TV shows like Master Chef where there are more divas than real chefs, I am sure you'll find this story interesting. And the added travelling, makes for a good escapist story. Who wouldn't want to get lost in Ireland or the Caribbean with a bunch of chefs to cook for you?
All in all, So You Think You're A Celebrity...Chef? is a light read to enjoy one springy afternoon. It has its humorous moments and a kind of Soap Opera air, with lots of characters, misunderstanding, scams and love affairs and with more than one surprise in story for you. So if this sounds like your kind of meal, go for it!

I Loved Caroline James's last book, "Coffee, Tea the Gypsy & Me" and am thrilled that once again she has pulled off a coupe with another wonderful story of life and love. I shall be buying this book for all my friends for Christmas this year, instead of a cookery book or a box set of a chefs tour of Britain, far more entertaining!
There is something very British about ...Chef and the characters are, on the whole, ones that you engage with and root for from the opening chapter. There's an air of Notting Hill or Love Actually about the whole thing. Characters who are married to their careers but still have an aching gap in their hearts for love (often the curse of a media job). The leading lady is Hilary, a celebrity agent whose reminiscences about loves-lost, attempts to quit smoking and the balancing of the challenges of dealing with loose-cannon clients make her incredibly endearing. Needless to say offers of love come her way but whether she takes the right path isn't revealed until the very last page. I loved her, as I did Zelda, the chef with low self-esteem and high body-fat (in my mind she was a wannabe Nigella) and the giddily gleeful Bob and Anthony, the gay couple who may be poles apart in many ways but prove that indeed opposites attract. Every pantomime needs a villain and ...Chef's is provided by Lenny, the wide-boy charmer in search of funding for his culinary project.
There is nothing worse in a book than having to scoot back through the pages night after night trying to work out which character is which in a 'who was she again?' or 'what was he about?' kind of way. This never happens with ...Chef - Caroline James' writing is clear, concise, beautifully fluid and makes you want to read on. She details her characters incredibly well. I'm recommending it to everyone, especially my celebrity chef friends. There is nothing half-baked about this story (has that pun been used yet?). I could see this transferring to TV and if it does I'm tuning in with my TV dinner and a glass of wine.
Fingers crossed that this is just the beginning of many for Caroline James :-)
