The Restaurant Critic’s Wife by Elizabeth LaBan


Enjoyable enough, but not what I expected… I don’t know what I was expecting to tell you the truth, maybe a little more excitement as I turned the pages ready to dive into the world of a restaurant critic’s family?  The food aspect of this book  is delicious! If you’re a foodie, you will love reading about the mouthwatering dishes described throughout.

Lila is the main character, the restaurant critic’s wife.  Her husband Sam is the paranoid restaurant critic, who insists on extreme measures to keep himself anonymous.  Lila struggles to juggle family life, getting back into the career world, and the loneliness that comes from keeping her husband’s identity a secret.  Overall, this wasn’t a terrible book, there just didn’t seem to be much of a story to tell.
