Skinny Bitch in Love
A NovelBook - 2013
"Clementine Cooper is an ambitious 26-year-old sous-chef at a hot vegan restaurant in Santa Monica. Clementine has worked hard for her position and earned a promotion over a backstabbing fellow line-cook, but when an important food critic visits the restauarant, Clementine's rival sabotages her vegan cooking by adding butter to the recipe. When Clementine finds herself fired and blackballed in L.A., she decides to use the personal low as a chance to flip her life upside down. She decides to start her own vegan cooking school and personal chef business called Skinny Bitch. Clementine takes on three very interesting students: her overweight roommate, Sara, a twentysomething nice guy named Duncan, and Eva, a bitter woman in the midst of a divorce. Every day, Clementine passes a space for lease in her neighborhood and fantasizes about opening her own vegan restaurant there. But on the first day of Clementine's cooking classes, she discovers that millionaire restaurateur Zach Jeffries is opening a steakhouse in the space! Clementine confronts Zach in the restaurant, but is horrified to discover that she's attracted to him. And it seems like he might be attracted to her too, since he immediately enrolls in her cooking school. But can two people who are so different actually find love? As Clementine rebuilds her life with new friendships, romance, and recipes, she begins to discover that she must make healthy choices in her personal life, as well as in the kitchen."
