And twelve-year-old Mia thinks learning to cook will stop her dad, Liam, from marrying his phony lasagna-queen girlfriend. As the class gathers each week, adding Camillas essential ingredients of wishes and memories in every pot and pan, unexpected friendships and romances are formedand tested. Especially when Holly falls hard for Liam . . . and learns a thing or two about finding her own recipe for happiness. Melissa Senate Melissa Senate...

The Love Goddess' Cooking School Reviews
Bello, bello, bello. Non posso dire altro di questo libro. Mi ha veramente conquistata. Lo so che potrei essere condizionata dalla mia grande passione per la cucina, ma credetemi, poche volte ho trovato un libro così coinvolgente da fare una grandissima fatica a staccare gli occhi dalle pagine.
Melissa Senate ha un grande dono, quello di saper raccontare in modo semplice sentimenti enormemente complessi. In più lo fa con una saggezza che fa spiccare il libro e non puoi leggerlo pensando che sia s ...more
I liked this as a nice and easy read that just makes you feel good. But I don't enjoy the references to current pop culture. It dates it. No matter what, in ten plus however many years, someone reading this book will say "Edward Cullen/Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana - who?".
What a lovely novel! I treated myself to THE LOVE GODDESS' COOKING SCHOOL after a crazy deadline. Then my cat got sick, which didn't exactly alleviate the stress. So I was very grateful for Melissa Senate's new book, which (like those old Calgon commericals), took me away for awhile. It was a pleasure meeting Holly Maguire and learning about her relationship with her Italian grandmother Camilla. Holly just broke up with a man she thought she was in love with and flew to Maine to see Camilla befo ...more
Holly has just had her heart broken. What better way to lick her wounds than to fly home to her Nonna's place in Maine? Her Nonna is a culinary teacher with on Blue Crab Island. For years and years she has welded her culinary magic with comfy Italian food and told fortunes on the side.
After Nonna's passing, Holly finds herself the proprietress of her business.However, Holly doesn't possess the magic touch that her grandmother had with food and definitely can't see the future.

The concept was great. I would have liked to have seen the characters developed a bit more. A good light read but beware of the typos. And the continuity with the grandmother's diary.
I always have a hard time reading romances because they tend to be plot driven instead of character driven. This is not one of those occasions. The Love Goddess' Cooking School is a wonderful, romantic Food-Lit and I can't wait to share it. I think Melissa Senate's writing is much like Sarah Addison Allen without the magical realism... and you all know how much I love Sarah Addison Allen.
Melissa Senate has created characters that are incredibly easy to identify with - flawed but redeemable. It's ...more
I have to admit that "The Love Goddess' Cooking School" was the first book by Melissa Senate I've read since "See Jane Date" (back in 2002), which I loved. I have her other books but haven't had a chance to read them yet. I don't think anything was keeping me from reading them, but now that I've finished this book, I definitely will be reading more from Ms. Senate.
"The Love Goddess' Cooking School" is about Holly, a woman who loses a serious relationship, gets fired from her job and is kicked ou ...more
Similar to "The school of essential ingredients' Look forward to it.
This was a charming book, similar, but yet very different from 'The School of Essential Ingredients'. After her grandmother passes away, Holly moves into her cottage/cooking school on an island off the coast of Maine. With her grandmothers recipe binder she learns to cook and registers students. They all are experiencing some kind of life trauma. The recipes they learn all have one 'Final Ingredient' "A wish, a memory, or a true ...more
