Hilary is a media agent, the main character in this book is an interesting character. She is all-business kind of woman. With her can-do attitude, she expects no less from here employees and celebrities (in this case chefs). What others do not know about her is her love life. Though she has buried it all in the past, the feelings suddenly revived when Lenny came into the picture with Long Tom Hendry and her last fling Mickey.


When she spent some time in Ireland to check out what Lenny is all about, she did not know the ingredients of her life is about to be placed in a pot! 

Apart from these characters, her other employees and other supporting celebrities in the book makes it all interesting and very realistic. This is my first time reading her book and I would say it is a fun read! Especially if you are into reality shows. ;) Lauren Conrad book fans, you should give this a shot.

Mix together…
 A tough-cookie media agent who’s clawed her way to the top, and a con-man who wants to open a cookery school.
Add in a washed-up celebrity chef whose career needs re-building…
Flavour with…
An aging rock star fresh from rehab, and a Sloane Ranger food writer who gets her own TV show…
Bring to the boil:
 At a Gourmet Food Festival, in Ireland, where anything goes!

When media agent Hilary Hargreaves travels to Ireland to look at a campaign for a new cookery school, she meets a blast from her past – the romantic but feckless chef Mickey Lloyd, who is hell-bent on resurrecting his flagging career. Her tough demeanour is rocked as it becomes apparent Mickey’s intentions involve more than a stint behind a stove in his quest to pursue her. But as plans for the school gain momentum, she realises that she’s developing more than a passing interest in reformed alcoholic Long Tom Hendry, who owns the crumbling old mansion where the school will be homed. Hilary has many ingredients to juggle with her demanding client list – which looks set to boil over if she doesn’t keep control. From London’s bustling Soho, to Southern Ireland and the sunny shores of the Caribbean, has Hilary got too much on her plate and is she really prepared to risk it all for love?
