30 days of books for Christmas - ruth reichl's delicious!

The time for denial is over!  Christmas is just around the corner and it's time to think about great reads for your family, friends and yourself during the holidays.  I'm going to make it easy for you and share 30 books over the next 30 days - all of which have been read by members of our family in 2015, so there will be something for everyone.  There will give you plenty of time to track them down and put them under the tree, making you the most popular person around this festive season!
First up is Ruth Reichl's Delicious!  Billie Breslin's career at Delicious magazine is over before it began.  The magazine folds just as she gets her foot in the door and she's left in an empty building to carry on with the Delicious Guarantee - the magazine's promise that all their recipes were guaranteed to be successful.  As Billie mans the hotline and prepares the building to be closed down, she discovers a cache of hidden letters, correspondence between a twelve-year-old girl and chef James Beard during World War II.  All sorts of adventure to be had, perfect for that Christmas beach read or snuggling in front of the fire, depending on where in the world you live.

PS The books will be featured in no particular order, just however I find them on the day!
