Beach Read for the Weekend

For most of us, it will be too hot to do anything very productive this weekend.  I don't know about you but my agenda includes reading a book by the pool.

I've been reading Groundswell by Katie Lee.  This novel is entertaining and may help keep your mind off the heat.  The author, Katie Lee is not new to writing books but this is her first novel.  Her other books are cook books.  She hosted the first season of Bravo's Top Chef and writes food and lifestyle columns for various publications.  

BUT, I think Katie Lee draws more from her life as former wife of Billy Joel for her initial novel offering.  The protagonist of the book, Emma, is a likable character who goes from rags to riches when she meets and then marries a famous movie star.  The book chronicles her move from a "nobody" to finding her way in the celebrity world.  Does she live happily ever after?  

You'll have to read for yourself.
Happy Weekend 


  1. This sounds like a fun read. Especially that it's related to cooking. Thanks for the suggestion.
