  1. Dana Bate graduated from Yale with a degree in molecular biophysics and biochemistry, then became a broadcast journalist with a specialization in finance and business, and then gave it all up to write romantic comedies.Don t worry none of this makes sense to her parents either.She is the author of A SECOND BITE AT THE APPLE published in the UK as THE STALL OF SECOND CHANCES , the forthcoming TOO MANY COOKS, and THE GIRLS GUIDE TO LOVE AND SUPPER CLUBS published in the UK as THE SECRET SUPPER CLUB , which earned a starred review in Publishers Weekly and has been translated into five languages Before writing fiction full time, she was a Washington producer and reporter for PBS s Nightly Business Report, where she won the Gerald Loeb Award for a series she produced on the Indian economy She lives outside Philadelphia with her family.

  2. I d be failing at my job and possibly life if I didn t rate my own book 5 stars Also I had SO much fun writing this one

  3. Start out with main character Kelly in a secure, long term relationship with a man who has never put a foot wrong all though apparently it is much important that he is very handsome, and a doctor, even though you are urged repeatedly that that is not the case.Continue with a celebrity gossip mad best friend mentally stuck in middle school, an endearingly eccentric father, a struggling younger brother and a career doing, well, what she REALLY enjoys doing Onward to a lucrative job offer, both mo [...]

  4. A lovely read Natasha travels to London to be a ghost writer on a cookery book for a famous actress, Natasha Spencer Is it going to be the dream role that she s hoping for Natasha is a very self centred lady and isn t going to make the experience the easiest one Natasha wants to include recipes from her past but she doesn t give her much help with the recipes or ingredients and is determined to demand little changes to perfect recipes I loved the way that Natasha tests them out and tries to plea [...]

  5. Some people have been saying that Food Whore A Novel of Dining and Deceit is The Devil Wears Prada, but with food Those people haven t read Dana Bate s delicious new offering This is because Natasha Spencer makes Miranda Priestly seem angelic, if that s even possible I was cringing for Kelly every time Natasha said something rude to her I couldn t even imagine someone treating me this way and I felt really bad for Kelly throughout the story Especially when things got even complicated Dana Bate [...]

  6. Too Many Cooks is the second novel by Dana Bate that I have had the pleasure of reading The Stall of Second Chances you can find my review here was the book that originally introduced me to the author back in 2014 and, after reading Too Many Cooks, it s clear to see that Dana is just getting better and better with every story that she creates If you ve read any of Dana s previous novels and you, like me, have marvelled at how deliciously delectable they were, then I can tell you right now, it s [...]

  9. I really love Dana s last book, The Stall of Second Chances, it was a great story and a fab cover, so far Dana s next book Too Many Cooks has one of those things a fab cover Does it have a great story Now I have been reading a lot of post apoc lately so this charming tale makes a welcome change It has a large helping of humour, a dash of cray cray crazy characters, gallons of descriptions of food, which are plain amazing oooo and recipes too and it also had a generous pinch of chemistry.Kelly is [...]

  10. Kelly Madigan is an easy character to like from the get go With her eccentric family, her steady and likeable boyfriend seems to make her life perfect However, when her Mum passes away she leaves Kelly a letter which tells her to get out there and cause some waves in her life and not to settle for the easy option This sets Kelly off on a chain of events which see her take some drastic decisions including upping and moving to London to work as a ghost writer for a celebrity writing her own cookbo [...]

  11. Great book I really enjoyed the characters and story The story goes along at a good pace with some predictable twists turns, yet keeps you interested Kelly Madigan is a cookbook ghostwriter who leads a pretty normal boring life She reads a letter her mother left for her before she died which encourages Kelly to add some adventure to her life Soon after, Kelly received an offer to collaborate with super star Natasha Spencer, who lives in London Kelly decides to take up the offer and moved from Mi [...]

  12. This didn t feel like your standard women s fiction novel I enjoyed reading about someone with an unusual career a cookbook ghostwriter and I enjoyed the fact that she couldn t help falling for a charming, but married, man whose British accent made me imagine that it was played by Hugh Grant.

  13. Well, Dana Bates has already taught me a lesson never read her books when you re hungry or on a diet She s taking the whole food thing to another level, with her incredibly delicious, vivid descriptions, and the way she writes about food with feeling, with respect to food, and she can describe all the smells and aromas in such a way that I can almost smell them through the pages of the book Even if it is kale burger Kelly Madigan is a ghost writer of cook books, and a very talented one So talent [...]

  15. I had one slight problem with Too Many Cooks, and that was that it continually made me hungry while I was reading it, this is because of the fantastic descriptions of food that Dana Bate is able to come up with With the exception of that slight drawback, this a a fantastic book I am finding that Dana s books are getting better and better with each one If you haven t read anything by this talented author, and you like food with a side order of humour and a sprinkle of romance, than please do chec [...]

  16. This is the first time in awhile that I have not read a mystery I was taken with the characters right away We met Kelly at her Mom s funeral along with her long time boyfriend, Sam And her Dad, a postal worker, her brother Stevie, still a student at age 27 and her best friend Meg The funeral is in Michigan When Kelly and Sam go back home to Chicago after the funeral we find out Kelly is a Ghostwriter for cookbooks She has helped several well known people write and make receipts for their cookboo [...]

  17. I really enjoyed this book and found I warmed to the character of Kelly right from the first chapter Beginning your story at a funeral doesn t seem to promise a cheery read but Dana Bate managed to make this lighthearted and humorous, particularly through the letter from Kelly s late mother This letter spurs Kelly to re examine her life a comfortable but perhaps boring relationship, a safe but predictable job When the opportunity comes up to move to London for a year working as a ghost writer fo [...]

  18. anurseandabook 2015 10Every time I read a Dana Bate book, I wonder why she hasn t become a bigger deal I got an ARC copy of A Second Bite at the Apple last winter, and I really enjoyed it review here So I was open to reading and reviewing Too Many Cooks, and I m so glad that I did Bate writes smart women which makes me happy.It s no secret that I like chick lit, mostly because my job is stressful I work hard, and I have to make decisions all day , so when I read, I want to relax However, I like [...]

  26. Too Many Cooks was an entertaining, fun, and relatable novel that I thoroughly enjoyed I, too, am an avid fan of The Girls Guide to Love and Supper Clubs.What I enjoyed most about this novel aside from the colorfully delectable descriptions of the food is how relatable it was, despite being set in the home of a Hollywood actress The main character, Kelly, has relatable emotions, understood insecurities, and begins a new chapter in her life as many of us have also done in our lives She was portra [...]

  29. Ok, I have to shamefully admit that I was hardly excited about this book when I started reading it I m a very bad cook and know nothing about recipes I was seeing myself bored to death for 440 pages The truth is at Chapter 2 I was already fond of Kelly and after the 3rd chapter, I couldn t put the book down Before work, at work, after work and during the night I ve been reading through this book It took me from laughter to tears many tears , the author finding the exact words every time to send [...]
