Review: Greedily Yours by Emma Hamilton

by Emma Hamilton

Mia Maxwell loves food. She loves it so much that she's made it her career. On the surface Mia seems to have it all. She lives in trendy east London with her best friend, Lizzie, who owns a cupcake cafe. By day she runs her own food PR consultancy, and by night she's a food blogger with a burgeoning audience. Mia has a banker boyfriend, Paul, who enjoys travelling the world, enabling her to taste the globe's culinary delights. But Mia is still hungry and, when she heads down to Cornwall to run a food festival, she doesn't realise that her entire life is about to be cast adrift.

Episode 1 - Mia Maxwell knows that her love of food is tied to her healthy appetite for romance. She's admitted as much on her food blog, "Culinary Confessions of a Greedy Girl." But could a chance encounter with a fellow foodie in Cornwall really entice her to question her own romantic relationship?

This book was actually written in eight parts, and Taste Test was just the first book. I couldn't pass the chance to read this book when I saw it on NetGalley. The cover was pretty and the summary hooked my interest when it mentioned food and food blogging.

Greedily Yours: Taste Test started off a bit slow to my liking. It took me a while to like the author's style. But I guess, the first part started to introduce the characters. At first, I was a bit confused as to who is the main character of the book. There's Lizzy, who owned a cupcake cake and Mia, who owned a food PR consultancy, and both of them were interesting characters.

This book is definitely a fun, quick read. It took me a short time to finish the book from the start. There are enough mentioned of food to get my stomach rumbling. And I do enjoy reading about Mia and her work at the food festival. There is a bit of romance in the story, but not so much. I guess, I will have to read the next book to find out about Mia's work, blog and romance.

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley.
