Quick read - finished it in a day or so. Loved the story line - especially the dynamics between Ashley and her mom. I really was baffled at first with the family relationships - and the more I read, the more I wanted to know. It is always a good thing when a writer can have several stories in one novel and carry it off so smoothly!!! The intrigue and plot kept me reading. Realistic characters, intriguing story line, and believable as well. The ending is not too neatly lined out- it leaves the reader knowing there is more to the story....but satisfied with the ending.
I didn’t like Ashley, not one iota. This dislike started before she started being a prize plonker. As I started reading I just got the “this girl is a whiner” vibe and there are lots of different personality types I adjust to in my reading, more than in real life believe me. But whiners, hell no!
Now don’t think my disliking Ashley ruined my enjoyment of the book, we all know disliking people doesn’t have to ruin anything. Seeing her dig herself into the hole she dug herself into was actually quite satisfying. It turns out along with being a whiner she was also really stupid. How she didn’t forsee the trouble she was going to cause herself I have no idea. I agree she couldn’t possibly have seen the details but honestly, there was no way keeping secrets was going to go well for her.
James was a vile little weasel of a man who needed to be put in his place. Why she didn’t just tell him to do one when he first phoned her I will never understand. I can’t talk about him anymore he makes me angry.
Giacomo her boyfriend is lovely, so committed to his vision and his business and he really cares for her and his family as well. I love his sense of humour and it’s a shame we don’t see a bit more of it.
This is a book that made me laugh, made me feel extremely frustrated and made me glad I’m a lot more street savvy than the main character! I think a lot of people will be enjoying this book, the recipes through the book should be adding some enjoyment to people’s dinner menu’s as well.
Sending a huge thanks to Sylvia Ashby, and Neverland Blog Tours for the eARC so that I could read and honestly review this novel.
As regular readers of my blog ChocolatePages would know, I do enjoy a good foodie book, and more recently I have taken a liking to books involving social media. When I read the description of this book a cookery channel on youtube and humorous, I was pretty sure I would enjoy the book. I did enjoy reading The Sinking Chef, very much. Ashley is a very likable character who I could relate to and often I would cringe for as she makes silly decisions which seem to make her life easier for the moment, but both she and I will know will make things much harder for the future! I wanted to shout at her that I could see what will happen if she does this that and the other. Ashley is like the girl next door, or the insecure girl that we are or were at one point. I think every woman will be able to understand part of Ashley.
As a chef, we have a few lovely recipes added in and also a few laughable ones too…… (Pot Noodle… shh!). No, really, as a Chef, Ashley is talented and I found the food talk quite delectable.
Ashley is a funny character as she tends to ‘read on the internet’ about everything and more often than not finds a reason or explanation for whatever it is ‘on the internet’.
“I’ve read on the internet how to recognise it. This particular one is called the silent treatment “
The Sinking Chef involves love, life, laughs and a good dose of scrumptious foodie talk. The Sinking Chef was an easy, funny read that gave me butterflies in my stomach on more than one occasion! I definitely recommend this book and look forward to reading more of Sylvia Ashby’s work.
