This was the first book that I have read by Mary Kay Andrews but I'm not sure that it was one of her best. I found the characters fell flat and some parts were drawn out. I did like the cooking show emphasis as I enjoy reading foodie type books. Parts of the competition reminded me of some of my favorite reality show cooking shows, one scene was reminiscent of one of my favorites, the new show Chopped on Food Network. There are some nice recipes in the back of the book as well as an author interview and readers guide. If you are a fan of southern fiction and chick lit and/or enjoy foodie type books, I think that you will enjoy this book.
I read Deep Dish as part of the Book Club Girl Online On Air Discussion with the Author. The show airs this Wednesday, March 25th at 7 PM EST. You can find more information about the show and listen in live at Book Club Girl. I am looking forward to being part of the discussion with other readers and especially the author Mary Kay Andrews.
