We Have a Winner!
I am happy to announce the winner of my recent quiz to win a $60 Amazon Voucher.
Congratulations to Ced of Le Blog de San Francisco who got every answer correct and was the closest to guessing the tiebreaker too.
Commiserations to my two runners-up. Yes, how pathetic is that, I only had three entries. (Meaning my quiz must have been pathetic, not my readers, of course). The non-winners were both so, so close getting just three questions 'not quite right' between them. The second prize of a copy of Ruth Reichl's latest book goes to Teri. And because Linda of Kayak Soup was pipped at the post by a mere whisker, I have decided to award her a small prize too.(To be decided.)
Thank you for taking part! I will reveal the answers, one at a time, over the next few weeks in my posts.
Ruth teased me, I wanted more
It took me over half of the book to warm to Ruth. I felt too many times she built up a scenario and left me hanging, wanting to know more. I was desperate to find out what happened... If there was ever any comeback from the obnoxious charity couple? How the Dan, the lawyer from LA who she duped on a date with her sexiest Chloe disguise, reacted to finding out he had in fact been dining with the NYT critic he had described as an 'idiot'? What the Chinese restaurant who had diligently faxed menus back & forth felt when Ruth was forced to unceremoniously dump them for some other venue, despite their going to so much effort to please her?
It is a light, entertaining read and charming enough. But my appetite was whetted and I craved more gritty details.
