Editorial Reviews

Review

“Janowitz confidently combines the charm of an awkward heroine; the warmth of a doting grandmother; the heartfelt persistence of an unexpected hero; and the delightful fizz of eccentric supporting characters with just enough bittersweet heartbreak to serve up a fun but satisfying concoction perfect for a summer's day.” ―RT Book Reviews

“Wonderful! This book went straight to my heart, with a character whose journey to happiness touched me in all the right ways. Brava Brenda Janowitz, for weaving such a wise, tender and poignant story about the intersecting lives of three generations of women. A beautiful testament to love!” ―Ellen Meister, author of The Other Life

“Brenda Janowitz has found the recipe for a great summer read: a dash of Hampton's glamour, a sprinkle of romance, and a cup of a feisty heroine you won't soon forget. A RECIPE FOR A HAPPY LIFE will keep you charmed from beginning to end.” ―Julie Buxbaum, author of The Opposite of Love and After You

“Grab a chaise and feast on Brenda Janowitz's sumptuous new novel, RECIPE FOR A HAPPY LIFE. It's one part delicious love story and two parts frothy family past. And oh how it cooks when the secrets boil over! Readers will delight in this fun and feisty tale that is a sweet treat to the very end.” ―Saralee Rosenberg, Author, DEAR NEIGHBOR, DROP DEAD

“How I loved this insightful exploration of love, family, what you think you know, and what you don't. Honest and poignant, funny and bittersweet, this gem of a novel sneaks up on you with just how powerful it truly is.” ―Melissa Senate, author of The Love Goddess' Cooking School
