The Saturday Night Supper Club – Carla Laureano (5 Stars)

Ms. Laureano kicks off her Supper Club series with The Saturday Night Supper Club.  Rachel Bishop has made a name for herself in the Denver fine-dining scene, earning a coveted James Beard Award and serving as executive chef of her own restaurant.  When an article that references her work goes viral, Rachel finds herself pushed out of her position and left with few allies in the culinary world.  Alex Kanin never intended his article to destroy Rachel’s career, especially as it was meant to prevent viral criticism from negatively effecting people’s lives.  To make up for the problems he caused, Alex offers to team up with Rachel on a new venture, namely the Saturday Night Supper Club.  While Rachel hopes to reignite her career and find an investor for her new restaurant, she soon discovers that the partner she needed all along may be the one that she least expected.

 

Filled with countless moments that foodies will love, The Saturday Night Supper Club offers a fun and contemporary flair to this faith-filled story.  After reading this novel, fans, new and old, of Ms. Laureano’s work will eagerly await the continuation of the Supper Club series.

 

Overall, I really enjoyed reading The Saturday Night Supper Club.  While I have not previously read Ms. Laureano’s other works, I found this novel to have an exceptionally well-developed storyline and cast of characters.  Ms. Laureano has well-paced plot development, even as it offers moments of both humor and sadness.  I really enjoyed her inclusion of various references to Denver’s culinary scene.  However, I could see some readers who are less familiar with the restaurant and business worlds being somewhat confused by certain vocabulary used in the novel.  Regardless, I found the book to be a fun and interesting read.  The preview of Brunch at Bittersweet Café included at the end of the novel firmly placed the second book of this series on my to-read list for 2019!
