With the glass kitchen, Linda Francis Lee has served up a novel that is about the courage it takes to follow your heart and be yourself. A true recipe for life. 

Portia Cuthcart never intended to leave Texas. Her dream was to run the Glass Kitchen restaurant her grandmother built decades ago. But after a string of betrayals and the loss of her legacy, Portia is determined to start a new life with her sisters in Manhattan . . . and never cook again. But when she moves into a dilapidated brownstone on the Upper West Side, she meets twelve-year-old Ariel and her widowed father Gabriel, a man with his hands full trying to raise two daughters on his own. Soon, a promise made to her sisters forces Portia back into a world of magical food and swirling emotions, where she must confront everything she has been running from. What seems so simple on the surface is anything but when long-held secrets are revealed, rivalries exposed, and the promise of new love stirs to life like chocolate mixing with cream. The Glass Kitchen is a delicious novel, a tempestuous story of a woman washed up on the shores of Manhattan who discovers that a kitchen—like an island—can be a refuge, if only she has the courage to give in to the pull of love, the power of forgiveness, and accept the complications of what it means to be family.


*I received this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Told from alternating POVs, The Glass Kitchen is a deliciously entertaining story about love, loss and being the person you were meant to be. It's peppered with colorful characters, witty banter and sprinkled with secrets and a dash of forbidden romance.  

The chapters are laid out like a six course meal and the book also includes a few of the recipes used in the story which are sure to satisfy readers appetites. (I was hungry the entire time I was reading!)

The Glass Kitchen makes for the perfect summer read!
