by Katherine Reay


Lizzy and Jane couldn't be further from Jane Austen's sisters for whom they are named.

Elizabeth left her family's home in Seattle fifteen years ago to pursue her lifelong dream -- chefing her own restaurant in New York City. Jane stayed behind to raise a family. Estranged since their mother's death many years ago, the circumstances of their lives are about to bring them back together once again.

Known for her absolute command of her culinary domain, Elizabeth's gifts in the kitchen have begun to elude her. And patrons and reviewers are noticing.  In need of some rest and an opportunity to recover her passion for cooking, Elizabeth jumps at the excuse to rush to her sister's bedside when Jane is diagnosed with cancer. After all, Elizabeth did the same for their mother. Perhaps this time, it will make a difference.

As Elizabeth's pours her renewed energy into her sister's care and into her burgeoning interest in Nick, Jane's handsome coworker, her life begins to evolve from the singular pursuit of her own dream into the beautiful world of family, food, literature, and love that was shattered when she and Jane lost their mother. Will she stay and become Lizzy to her sister's Jane -- and Elizabeth to Nick's Darcy -- or will she return to the life she has worked so hard to create?
