I became a fan of Anita Hughes after reading her debut novel, Monarch Beach, the sparkling story of a woman's self-discovery. (We even included it in our best beach reads for the summer.) Her books have been described as "easy-breezy" and "heartfelt" and, for me, this is the perfect combination, especially when I want to lose myself in someoene else's life so I can take a break from my own. Her second novel, Market Street is another fun book, but one that also has a tremendous amount of heart.
If only whether or not to forgive her husband was Cassie's only difficult decision. Her mother is also anxious to have her take charge of the openeing of Fenton's new Food Emporium which she hopes will become San Francicso's be-all-end-all gourmet shopping destination.
Cassie’s never had the passion for fashion that her mother posesses and she wonders if her mom is trying to lure her into the Fenton's circle by entrusting her with such an important opportunity. And then we should probably mention James, the architect in charge of creating the emporium, who also happens to be secretly falling in love with Cassie.
If you love high fashion, delicious high-end food and San Francisco, you'll be in heaven with Hughes' brilliant descriptions. An engaging story of love, trust, marriage and family, you'll be hooked immediately and savour each page until the very end. Although even after you close the book, the characters will linger with you long after. So if you're heading out on a spring break trip or a vacation, I highly recommend tossing a copy of Market Street in your bag.
