From the New York Times best-selling author of The Friday Night Knitting Club comes a delectable new novel about food, family, and second chances.Augusta Gus Simpson, a Martha Stewart-esque TV cooking personality, has come a long way since her husband died suddenly, leaving her to raise and support their two daughters on her own. Channeling her grief into hard work, she carved a successful career out of her natural talents as a chef and hostess. But now, as she approaches 50, she finds that her well-earned turf may not be as secure as she thought. A hot young Latin beauty queen with a flair for spices and an ambition for stardom is threatening to steal her spot on the Cooking Channel. As Gus struggles to remake herself for a new age of media, she discovers that her entire life may need a makeover, including her relationship with her daughters and, perhaps, another chance at romance.

Shortly before turning 50, TV cooking show personality Augusta "Gus" Simpson discovers that the network wants to boost her ratings by teaming her with a beautiful, young new co-host. But Gus isn't going without a fight-whether it's off-set with her two demanding daughters, on-camera with the ambitious new diva herself, or after-hours with Oliver, the new culinary producer who's raising Gus's temperature beyond the comfort zone. Now, in pursuit of higher ratings and culinary delights, Gus might be able to rejuvenate more than just her career.
