I'm not going to lie. This book caught my eye because of the title. "When In Doubt, Add Butter." You gotta admit, it's pretty catchy. And the cover looks delicious. So I told myself, why not? The story? It wasn't bad. Beth Harbison writes well, and the heroine here, Gemma Craig has a distinct voice. She sounds like a real person, one that I wouldn't mind knowing. Gemma works as a private chef, and goes to a different house every night to cook. Some are families, some are single men, one is even a Russian family whom she suspects is connected to the mob. The book starts with her adventures and misadventures on being a chef. Around a third in, we start dealing with her love life. The story is pretty balanced, although the end seemed a bit predictable, though I can forgive it because Harbison's pace is pretty steady and quick, so you won't really have much time to notice holes. I thought it was a great quick read.
