Luscious Lemon" starts out with a lot of punchy humor as the story of an Italian girl from Brooklyn, nicknamed Lemon, running an acclaimed restaurant of the same name. She harasses her staff and her friend, Franny, harasses her back. She and Franny once went through Europe together and were into the same guys and now there is unresolved tension between them. The author, Heather Swain, apparently also had a miscarriage and felt that not enough books dealt with this issue that affects so many women. Lemon gets through it, with the help of her family, friends, Eddie's mother (unexpectedly), and a kind-hearted Japanese dessert maker, Makiko.

Luscious Lemon" by Heather Swain is truly chick lit at its best. Lemon, the main heroine of the book, is strong, hard-working and an excellent cook. As a matter of fact, she owns her own restaurant in NYC and is trying (so far unsuccessfully) to turn the place into something profitable. Her devoted boyfriend is dropping marriage hints, but she just doesn't have time or desire to settle down until she has made her restaurant into something spectactular.

A hilarious take on the paranormal trend-Twilight meets The Breakfast Club! When former good girl turned rebel Josie Griffin gets busted for what was in her mind perfectly acceptable revenge on her cheating dog of a boyfriend, she lands herself in anger management therapy. It could be worse: it could be juvvie, or she could be a zombie cheerleader like the rest of her former friends. But there's something strange about therapy-these are not normal kids.

Luscious Lemon by Heather Swain - She's finally seeing the fruits of her labors.

She's finally seeing the fruits of her labors. Chef Ellie "Lemon" Manelli's hip East Village bistro is suddenly all the rage; Lemon and her staff of wildly talented friends plucked from New York City's finest eateries can barely keep pace. Good thing she has her loyal, doting, bankrolling Georgia peach of a boyfriend, Eddie, to lean on -- not to mention a gaggle of loving relations over the river in Brooklyn. In fact, Lemon's life is turning out exactly as she planned -- except for the fact that she's late. As in late. Nobody said anything about, you know, labor. Having a baby right now would jeopardize everything Lemon has worked so hard to accomplish, so the pregnancy test results leave her feeling a little sour. Eddie, bless his heart, wants to just go ahead and get married, but Lemon's not sure the timing's right. She's about to learn a lesson or two about love and loss, though. And in the end she'll discover that there's a reason things work out the way they do -- and that when life gives you lemons, you can make lemonade, or lemon tarts, or lemon meringue pie. Or, you can just be a plain ole Lemon, if that's what you were meant to be.

This is the first time that I have read anything from this author. I am a huge fan of culinary novels and loved the food interwoven with the family drama in this book. The characters are all well written and the story line was intriguing. I hope to read more books by this author in the future. I recommend this book.

I absolutely loved this book. After reading Eliots Banana, I knew that I really liked this authors stile of writing, but this book was over the top. I could not put it down and found myself reading it whenever I got a free second. The story is somewhat sad, but not depressing. Swain is so insightful and peppers the story with such hysterical lines. You won't be sorry if you purchase this one!

This was a good book. Nothing bad about it... but in the beginning it read slow, but the beginning was also happy. Then it became sad.. and it made me sad... but right at the end it became happy again. I recommend it!

The authors writing was well, and am looking forward to reading her other books.

Without ruining the plotline, all I can really say is that this is a modern take on relationships and work. And that it is very very good.

Also don't let it lead you to believe that Elliot's Banana is good. It isn't.

This is a quick read, an enjoyable twist to the story kept me glued in until the end. I'm curious to see what Swain comes out with in the future.

"Luscious Lemon" starts out with a lot of punchy humor as the story of an Italian girl from Brooklyn, nicknamed Lemon, running an acclaimed restaurant of the same name. She harasses her staff and her friend, Franny, harasses her back. She and Franny once went through Europe together and were into the same guys and now there is unresolved tension between them.

Lemon has a boyfriend, Eddie, who is sweet to her and dying to get married. Although Lemon is an orphan, she has a grandmother and a legion of aunts and cousins who are all too happy to provide company. Suddenly, Lemon finds herself pregnant. (There's a section at the end of some of the chapters from the baby's point of view, which is interesting.)

Then the plot takes a detour when Lemon loses her baby. Nothing really holds any interest for her anymore. The author, Heather Swain, apparently also had a miscarriage and felt that not enough books dealt with this issue that affects so many women. Lemon gets through it, with the help of her family, friends, Eddie's mother (unexpectedly), and a kind-hearted Japanese dessert maker, Makiko.

I loved a lot of things about this book: the humorous exchanges between Lemon and Eddie at the doctor's office (you can see why they are a couple), the hard-earned wisdom of Lemon's grandmother, Lemon's crazy aunt Livinia who lives in her grandmother's basement, the food descriptions, and the emotions Lemon goes through.

For me, a flat spot in the narrative was the friendship between Lemon and Franny. It's just not believable. These two are always fighting, never looking out for each other. Although there are unfortunately some "friendships" between women that are like this, they are not usually this bad. Plus, it's not clear why they became friends in the first place. Franny's company is not enjoyable, even in a book.

"Luscious Lemon" by Heather Swain is truly chick lit at its best. I found it be powerfully touching, exquisitely detailed and highly readable.

Lemon, the main heroine of the book, is strong, hard-working and an excellent cook. As a matter of fact, she owns her own restaurant in NYC and is trying (so far unsuccessfully) to turn the place into something profitable. Her devoted boyfriend is dropping marriage hints, but she just doesn't have time or desire to settle down until she has made her restaurant into something spectactular. However, it soon becomes apparent that she is pregnant, but she is so busy that she doesn't realize it right away.

When it finally dawns on her that maybe all the symptoms are pointing to pregnancy, Lemon has mixed emotions. On one hand, her wonderful boyfriend says he plans to be there every step of the way, which is reassuring. On the other hand, she is conflicted, because the timing just stinks. However, after some heartfelt talks with her boyfriend and getting an ultrasound, she becomes fiercely attached to the little creature growing within her.

Things are hectic, but going along okay, when tragedy strikes. Lemon loses someone very close to her, and things begin spiraling out of control. She is forced to deal with her emotions and overcome her grief, sense of loss and feelings of abandonment.

I don't want to give away any more details about the plot, so I'll leave the reader to find out the rest! One of the best things about Luscious Lemon is that it enticingly goes from one scene to another flawlessly. The story starts off with a daring food and love scene, then plunges into the details of Lemon's life. The author provides a detailed background on all of the main characters in the story as well as plenty of delicious descriptions of food. As with Heather Swain's previous book Eliot's Banana, there is a small supernatural side-story. All of these details combine to make Luscious Lemon into a wonderful, vivid and detailed story.

Heather Swain does an amazing job in capturing the true feelings of abandonment and pain that one often experiences when they lose someone close to them. Overall, I highly recommend this book.
