    This review was written for Lizzy & Jane.
    This was a delicious book - but like some necessary ingredients in my favorite chocolate chip cookies, parts of this book are very bitter and unpalatable by themselves. I ached to read of the raw emotions Lizzy and Jane tried to sort through, as well as the terrible chemo sessions and lassitude brought on by Jane's cancer. And Lizzy's wounds - physical as well as emotional, future as well as present - really upset me. But I loved this book for its honesty and the sheer pleasure of meeting someone who enjoys food as I do!

    When the story opens, we meet Elizabeth Hughes, a New York chef with great credentials, but little fire. Shortly after her boss brings in a second, more energetic chef in an effort to revitalize their menu, Elizabeth flees to Seattle. On the surface, she goes to help her sister, Jane, deal with her illness, but she is also hoping to escape the pressures and disappointments of New York and "find herself." As she admits to her sister later, "I needed to cook and you had a warm kitchen." But in the process of helping Jane (and others), Elizabeth begins to thaw out and realize that the most important part of life is being, not doing. And of course a very tender romance is tangled up in this new perspective, too. Can she face her deepest fears and find fulfillment in a fresh start? And will it be in trendy New York or low-key Seattle?

    Katherine Reay's books seem to be full of challenging topics that I might otherwise avoid. But like a talented cook, she mixes realistic personalities and situations in just the right proportions to create a feast for her readers. This isn't a book to pick up lightly (I confess I renewed it for a second three weeks from my local library before even starting it), but if you enjoy a non-traditional love story with a dash of faith, I heartily recommend this read to you.

    This review was written for Lizzy & Jane.
    Initially, I really liked this book. Thought it was 5 stars. It moved along. I felt the tension between the sisters was probably "real-life-like." The descriptions of the peoples reactions to fear, when facing cancer, were very interesting to me. I assume they were accurate to real-life. The food comments were amazing. The detail of what it takes to be a professional chef. This was all good.

    However, it bothered me that Elizabeth stayed overnight on Nick's couch when she was coming home from the ER. She did this so as not to wake Jane or her family. The stay at Nick's was "clean." No sex. No getting undressed. No going to the bedroom. It was clean. But, it bothered me that she stayed there, period. If one of my kids did this I would be coming un-glued. As a Christian who tries to practice a Christian lifestyle, I wouldn't want my kids doing this.

    I quit reading the book shortly after this point. I didn't finish the book.

    This review was written for Lizzy & Jane.
    Abruptly leaving her New York City restaurant to help care for her very ill sister, Elizabeth heads for the west coast; never imagining that her extraordinary culinary skills would be so essential to a loved one undergoing chemotherapy. Intending to remain a short time with her sister Jane, Elizabeth extends her two week vacation and not only tries to heal a strained family relationship, but finds herself entwined with another challenge, Nick; Jane's very handsome and intriguing coworker. Slowly Jane's love of cooking begins to return, and her creativity in the kitchen becomes a ministry to other cancer patients. Ultimately, Jane faces an impending decision, return to New York or . . . .. . . . . .

    "Lizzy and Jane" is a little difficult to interpret. As an avid reader with deep appreciation for classic literature, the characters, quotes and story lines are not easily recalled; making the constant references within this novel subtly disconcerting. The incessant "food talk" is also a bit distracting for the non-professional, even those with a hearty appetite for well-flavored, inter-national entrees. The story, while extremely well-written from a technical perspective is introspective, to the point of being overwhelming, at least for this reader. However, there is a strong flavor of hope that runs deep within the pages of this book; that God in His goodness can work all things together for good; even between sisters torn apart by tragic circumstances, and for that reason alone, "Lizzy and Jane" is a "feast".

    Oh. My. Austen!

    This story is delightful and beautifully emotional. I immediately was drawn into the family conflict. Reay makes you care about her characters in a way that it sneaks up on you. It's not until it's time to set the book down that you realize how attached you have become. I didn't expect to enjoy the story as much as I did. I loved this book so much that I already dearly miss the characters.

    Though I would never admit to having favorites, I dearly like Lizzy's character. Oh, I was so happy to watch her grow and change over the course of the story. She's funny and caring, but deep down she's broken. This story is her journey to healing. It's a journey of forgiveness and of familial love. Her sister, Jane grew on me as well. Jane experiences her own growth in this story, but it's different from Lizzy's.

    And that's why, I think, I love this book so much. Like other books I've happened to read recently, this book is full of heart and soul. There's meaning in the pages. The characters are relatable. The story is heart-twisting. While yes, I can say there's "romance" in this story, it's far from the focus, which is so refreshing. It proves you don't need a central romance for a good story. All these things mentioned make up a wonderful book and this one is certain to remain on my shelf to be re-read. I highly recommend it.

    I bought this book, my opinions are my own.

    I've read the reviews all ready shared, and I find I have nothing new to add because the territory that this is a wonderful book has been covered. I do agree with the reviewer who said there needs to be at least one recipe, and I add, more than one, included!
