Georgia- New York or Italian dreams?
on January 6, 2014
(3.5 stars) Georgia works at a Manhattan restaurant. While she is not crazy about the owner's taste level in decor, or his restrictions on his set menu, she delights in making the specials and running the kitchen. She is engaged to be married, and they have just been evaluated by a prominent restaurant critic, whose positive review could make her career. Everything begins unraveling when her boss' unscrupulous behavior leads to a searing review, causing Georgia to be fired. She finds out some unpleasant things about her fiance, and he ends up calling off the wedding. Knowing that finding a job in New York is not going to be easy, she reaches out to a former mentor in Italy, and secures a position in her newly opening restaurant. While disappointments arise, Georgia takes some time to learn and grow. When an amazing opportunity comes up, she must decide what she really wants in life, both professionally and personally. Georgia makes a courageous decision and then takes the hard steps to make her dreams come true. This was a pleasant story, filled with the love of food and had a strong protagonist with a twist away from the usual chick-lit storyline.
