The book is called Comfort Food and will be our third Jacobs book selection. Here’s just a sampling of the buzz going around about this selection:

“Kate Jacobs’ breezy follow-up to her bestselling The Friday Night Knitting Club is a satisfying read that showcases Jacobs’ skill in creating endearingly flawed characters… the kind of book you rush home to finish.” – USA Today

“Gus and the show’s cast, with their humor, moods, and romance, are the sparks that bring this warm and irresistible story to life. Highly recommended.” – Library Journal
