A Tale of the Curious Cookbook
Three months after losing his parents in a car crash, Denver weatherman Daniel Whitaker returns to Laramie, Wyoming. It’s bad enough dealing with the death of his parents and his failing relationship of fifteen years, but when he finds his childhood home full of clutter, Daniel is at a loss. He enlists Landon, his parents’ sexy neighbor, to help him sort through the mess. Landon Kushner is a study in contradictions. He builds wind sculptures out of scrap metal and loves the outdoors, but he also rides a mint-green Vespa and has an affinity for knitting and fortune-telling. He’s been friends with Daniel’s parents for years, and he’s more than willing to lend a hand.
Their plan is simple: clean the house so Daniel can sell it and get back to his life in Denver. But when a strange cookbook comes into Landon’s possession, Daniel begins to realize that the universe – and Granny B – may have other plans.
This is my second time through Lost Along the Way by Marie Sexton. It is a sweet story of moving on and embracing change, with a little help of the Curious Cookbook, some bread, and some meatloaf. It is about opening your eyes to the possibilities and cutting the bad parts of your life. It is a good comfort read.
Jeff Gelder is not my favorite narrator, but he is usually solid. I don’t know that he added a whole lot to the story, but he didn’t detract from it either. Sometimes that is the best we can hope for. I have been let down by a Jeff Gelder narration in the past, so I was happy to see that was not one of those times.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
