Scout Selection: Sugar and Spice and All Those Lies

Sugar and Spice and All Those Lies

Chanterelles garnished with cream and mayhem.


Cooking a great meal is an act of love. An act of grace. A life-affirming gift. These are lessons Gina learns from her mother, daughter of a French chef. Gina is a young woman born to poor parents; a nobody (her words) who gets lucky when she’s chosen to cook at a Michelin-starred restaurant in the San Francisco Bay Area. She finds a world of new challenges, and new loves—one that exposes her to fascinating people who’re also gripped by dark motives. Can the lessons she learned from her mother about cooking and life help Gina survive and thrive in this other world of privilege, pleasure and unexpected danger?

About the Author:
Evy Journey, 2015 SPR (Self Publishing Review) Independent Woman Author awardee, is a writer and wannabe artist who wishes she lives in Paris where people have perfected the art of aimless roaming. A Ph.D. allowed her to research and help develop mental health programs. She’s a writer because beautiful prose seduces her and existential angst continues to plague her despite such preoccupations having gone out of fashion. She takes occasional refuge by invoking Jane Austen’s spirit to spin tales of love, loss, and finding one’s way into which she weaves mystery or intrigue.
