Hannah Sugarman seems to have it all. She works for an influential think tank in Washington, D.C., lives in a swanky apartment with her high-achieving boyfriend, and is poised for an academic career just like her parents. The only problem is that Hannah doesn't want any of it. What she wants is much simpler; to cook.
When her relationship collapses, Hannah seizes the chance to do what she's always loved and launches an underground supper club out of her new landlord's town house. Though her delicious dishes become the talk of the town, her secret venture is highly problematic, given that it is not, technically speaking, legal. She also conveniently forgets to tell her landlord she has been using his place while he is out of town.

On top of that, Hannah faces various romantic prospects that leave her guessing and confused, parents who don't support cooking as a career, and her own fears of taking a risk and charting her own path. A charming romantic comedy,The Girls' Guide to Love and Supper Clubsis a story about finding yourself, fulfilling your dreams, and falling in love along the way.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from if this were a dish it would be bland This was honestly a very blah read. I don't know how it was on my to-read list or who recommended it to me. I didn't enjoy it because I felt like it didn't add anything to my life or make me think about anything. It had so much potential to be a really reflective read for many that are in Hannah's shoes and unsatisfied with their careers but it didn't reach that potential. I only finished this book because I tend to finish all the books I start. This is definitely one of those light summer/pool side reads and nothing more. Blake definitely sounds interesting though. I want to know why he had a such a great kitchen if he never cooks.
