Guest Book Review: Emma Hamilton - Greedily Yours - Episode 1: Taste Test

Reviewed by Kelly Spillane 

Mia Maxwell loves food. She loves it so much that she's made it her career. On the surface Mia seems to have it all. She lives in trendy east London with her best friend, Lizzie, who owns a cupcake cafe. By day she runs her own food PR consultancy, and by night she's a food blogger with a burgeoning audience. Mia has a banker boyfriend, Paul, who enjoys travelling the world, enabling her to taste the globe's culinary delights. But Mia is still hungry and, when she heads down to Cornwall to run a food festival, she doesn't realise that her entire life is about to be cast adrift. 

Episode 1 - Mia Maxwell knows that her love of food is tied to her healthy appetite for romance. She's admitted as much on her food blog, "Culinary Confessions of a Greedy Girl." But could a chance encounter with a fellow foodie in Cornwall really entice her to question her own romantic relationship?

Greedily Yours is a novel spilt up into eight episodes. Usually  I would much rather read a book all together rather than in eight separate different parts. However after reading episode one of this series, I feel that having many different parts works for this novel.  

Mia Maxwell loves food and writes a very popular food blog, "Culinary Confessions of a Greedy Girl." She lives with her best friend Lizzie, and with Lizzie's help has made a career out of her love for food. But when she travels to Cornwall to led her hand in a food festival, she meets the very rude, but extremely handsome Tom. Even though Mia has been in a happy relationship with her boyfriend Paul for four years, her encounter with Tom leaves her questioning what it is that she really wants in her love life.  

When I started this I must admit that I found it a struggle to get into, but once I did my Kindle was glued to my hand. This book is such a quick and easy read, which is extremely enjoyable and leaves you wanting more. I can't wait to find out what happens in the next installments of this book.  

The characters are all very likable and very well developed. You get a great insight into each character and their lives. The book also gives you great descriptions of the food and the countryside, without being overly descriptive. It transports you to the festival in Cornwall and makes your mouth water at the thought of all the great food. Even though each episode is short, it sticks out in your mind.  

All in all, this book is hugely enjoyable and left me wanting to read more of Mia's adventures. It also kept me entertained throughout, with a story that you can't help smile at. 

I'd like to thank Hayley at ED PR for sending us Greedily Yours: Taste Test for Kelly to review.
