Hungry for Love is a charming and funny read. It only took me a couple of days to finish and I think it would be a great book to pack in your suitcase if you have a holiday planned over the summer.
The opening chapter sees Jax cancelling her wedding by text, on the actual day. I loved that the author went straight into the thick of it as you are left wanting to know what has led Jax to make such a huge decision. Plus you have had no time to get to know the character before something very big happens so all of these leads you to want to read on in order to find out more.
The book follows Jax as she tries to get her life back on track. She is now free of her domineering ex but she still has her over-bearing mother to deal with. Jax's mother is Majella; a famous celebrity chef who Jax has a very difficult relationship with. Jax decides to teach herself to cook. With her mother's fame and notoriety she has a lot to live up to but the process shows her what she is really made of. With some love interests thrown in and many mouth-watering descriptions of food, you can't help but enjoy this story of one woman's quest to find out exactly who she wants to be.
This is the first book I have read by Lucy Beresford but I enjoyed her witty and entertaining writing style.
Hungry for Love is a feel good read that will leave you with a big smile on your face and a rumbling tummy!

Many thanks to Emma Daley for sending me a copy of this book to review, it is available to buy now.
