The above list represents leitmotifs in Simply From Scratch (obvs!), which has been described as Good Grief meets Love Walked In meets P.S. I Love You.

People magazine calls it “tasty” in the Great Reads section of this week’s (8/14) issue, and Library Journal says it’s “strong, richly detailed, with a truly lovable heroine.” It has enjoyed five straight weeks on the Spiegel bestseller list in Germany (danke, Germany).

I hope you read Simply From Scratch, and I hope you love it, too!
