Skinny Bitch in Love tells the story of Clementine Cooper, a vegan chef in LA who gets blacklisted by her peers for a mysteriously appearing pat of butter in a garlic sage sauce. From there, she begins to pick up the pieces of her life and arrange them in new and innovative ways (vegan cooking classes, personal chef services, and more) just as a billionaire hunk opens a steakhouse in the spot she had envisioned for her own dream restaurant.
As a carnivore myself and most certainly not a skinny bitch, I am miles away from Clementine’s character, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the book. The secondary characters, particularly Clementine’s roommate Sara and her cooking class participants, livened up the story, but I can’t say I really ever got invested in the romance aspect (or enjoyed how it played out or ended).
Still, this was a light, fun read with lots of delicious food talk even for non-vegans. If you’re looking for a chick lit book well-suited for a weekend at the beach, this will do just fine.
