Picks and Pans Review: Flight Lessons
By Patricia Gaffney
The Bella Sorella is one of those family-owned Italian restaurants that hasn't updated its menu or decor since Ronald Reagan was President. Proprietor Rose Fiore rightly believes its only hope is her niece Anna Catalano, a restaurateur who fled the fold ages ago and has a grudge against Rose. Fortunately, Rose's beau has a mysterious stepson. He's handsome. He's unattached.
Family and home are among the issues Gaffney deftly probes in this often illuminating third novel. It's a simple recipe, but Gaffney adds ingredients like a master chef for a fresh and filling story. (HarperCollins, $24.95)
