Guest Book Review: Emma Hamilton - Greedily Yours - Episode 2: Salty Tales

Reviewed by Kelly Spillane

Episode 2 of 8: Food and travel are two of Mia Maxwell's greatest passions. So when Mia's boyfriend invites her to Miami for his birthday, she jumps at the chance. But will a fortune teller's words and a mysterious man give her food for thought? 

Greedily Yours is a serial novel about the quest for top dishes ... with a dash of accidental love. 

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 sewn up. She lives in trendy east London with her best friend. By day she runs her own food PR consultancy, and by night she's a food blogger enjoying a burgeoning audience. Mia has a banker boyfriend 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 realize that her entire life is about to be cast adrift.

Mia Maxwell is back in the second episode of a eight part series. After the success of the summer festival in episode one, Mia is back at home and is trying to settle back into her normal life although she can't stop thinking about the lovely Tom who she met during her time in Cornwall.  

Her boyfriend of four years Paul likes to treat Mia to weekends away, although his strict diet and love of the gym, leaves Mia wishing she could see more of the places she travels to and leaves her longing to try the local cuisine. She does run a food blog after all. This episode takes Mia to Barcelona and Miami.  

I loved  this episode just as much as the first installment. I feel that I got to know the characters better in this installment especially Mia. Each of the characters are very well developed and the character of Paul is perfectly written as the person we love to hate. I loved how we still got to see snippets of Tom as he lives his life in Cornwall.  

I really like how the relationship between the characters of Tom and Mia is still strong even though they are not together in this episode. The chemistry between the two characters is beautifully written and I am really rooting for the two to meet up again and realize that they belong together.  

The food that is described in this episode left my mouth watering. The thing I love most about the series is that the characters, with the exception of Paul, all have a really good relationship with food, which is refreshing to read, as so many books see characters struggle with their relationship with food. It's great to finally read a book about food, where the characters aren't worried about their weight or obsessed with dieting.  

I really enjoyed this installment and can't wait to get stuck into episode three.  

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