Best Chick Lit review ‘Hungry for Love’ by Lucy Beresford have reviewed Hungry for Love by Lucy Beresford, published by Quartet in May:

Hungry for Love is a masterclass in sensual writing, and fulfilment and nourishment, in every possible way, are the values it winningly portrays.

In her first real act of rebelHungryforlovelion, Jax leaves her superficial fiancé on their wedding day and starts an adventure in the art of pleasing oneself. Not only is her appetite for sumptuous foods awakened, but her appetite for love. If only her sister Caryl could learn to love herself too.

Jax’s journey of self-discovery is a delight to follow and she takes on every new challenge with gusto and abandon. Food is described throughout the book with such passion that I swear you’ll be drooling at points – it might be best to have a box of chocolates at the ready just in case. Juxtaposed with all this delightful excess, Caryl’s eating disorder does not feel indelicately handled, its origins explained well, although I did feel it was a little simplistic and too easily overcome.

But overall this book is as moreish and satisfying as a freshly baked loaf of bread – just try to resist!
