Novel is a light story of a woman's life after the sudden death of her young husband.

It follows her through a fairly cliched plot with visit to psychic Madame Sousatska the first deviation, as well
as the addition of many bachelors attracted to the breakfasts and dinners she eventually offers in her house.

Sample: "She took to motherhood like mashed potatoes to gravy and quickly got back into the swing of things...."

Many enticing recipes are offered. Most are very complicated and not for vegetarians.

Heavy on Catholic traditions. Weak on character development.

As well, we have no idea which, if any of the prospective bachelors she actually feels attracted to,
yet readers are expected to agree that when Jerry decides to wear a tie, she will fall in line. ( )

This book was exactly what I needed this weekend. I had just finished a nonfictio book on poison and needed a palate cleanser. Angelina's Bachelors fit the bill perfectly. A fun fast novel that didn't need anything from me. ( )

One of the most delightful and charming books I've read this year. Everyone I've recommended this book to has fallen in love with Angelina and her seven bachelors. How a young widow captures the neighborhood fellows with her creative cooking and saves her own sanity in the meantime. A must read for romance, light fiction fans and cookbook fanatics (yum - the recipes are luscious..) ( )

When Angelina's husband dies of a massive heart attack at only forty and while sneaking a piece of her "Dream" cake, you would think she would be put off of cooking forever. But to Angelina, her cooking and baking gives meaning to her life. She obsessively creates new recipes and through her loves of food brings her new friends. This story should be really sad, but I found myself totally charmed by the characters that come to inhabit Angelina's dining room as she tries to make ends meet by serving food to several bachelors with questionable eating habits. These men come to encourage her through their friendship and she keeps them in line with her food. It wonderful to read something encouraging and have happiness appear through unlikely places and people.

This book is not leaving my house and deserves a place of honor among my cookbooks! The story is interwoven with wonderful recipes that help tell Angelina's story and will have your mouth watering just reading them. The recipes go into detail that a lot of cookbooks don't even begin to cover with step by step instructions that are easy to follow. You can tell that the author truly loves food and I really wonder which came first: the recipes or the story. If you are a fan of food and looking for something a bit different for your book group, I think this one should be at the top of your list. It would be really fun to make a few of the recipes for your book club meeting. ( )
