The Lost Art of Mixing

The Lost Art of MixingThe Lost Art of Mixing by Erica Bauermeister
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story is told through an artful combination of characters and cooking, which seems to be Bauermeister's calling card.  She does it well.  The characters are well-developed, their lives and personalities related like ingredients and recipes, each character somehow saving another from failure, despair or loneliness.  The brink-of-divorce couple, the homeless/family-less girl, the outlandishly tall (and also family-less) boy, the restauranteur, the widower...all are worthy of inviting over for coffee and good conversation.

I listened to this story on Audible, and the narration was very well done, really bringing the characters to life.  If you're looking for diversion of the fluff variety, you've found it!  A great feel-good story.
