“Former lawyer Melanie Hoffman lost half her body weight and opened a gourmet take-out café specializing in healthy and delicious food. Then her husband left her-for a woman twice her size. Immediately afterwards, she’s blindsided by a financial crisis. Melanie reaches out to a quirky roommate with a ton of baggage and becomes involved in a budding romance with a local documentary filmmaker.
In this warm and often laugh-out-loud novel, Melanie discovers that she still has a lot to learn about her friends, her relationships with men, and herself-and that her weight loss was just the beginning of an amazing journey that will transform her life from the inside out…”
I really want to like Stacey Ballis because she’s local. I’ved tried two of her books and I feel like they all sound way too alike. At least you have one off your shelves?
She is a regional author for me. I can’t say that I would read any of her other books, but I can understand her appeal to certain audiences.
