Elizabeth, a dentist in her late thirties, doesn’t have it all. She is coping with her husband’s coma, her unresolved grief over her mother’s death, her mixed feelings toward her stepmother, dissatisfaction with her job.
Unexpectedly, she falls in love with a musical zoo curator from Australia. He is divorced, he has a dog and a tween daughter who doesn’t want Elizabeth around.
When her husband wakes up, Elizabeth’s life is thrown into chaos. The choice before her is unbearable because she doesn’t want to hurt anyone, yet she wants to do the right thing, whatever that is. The expectations of her family and her men don’t make it any easier. What should she do? Can she have her cookie and eat it too?
My Book Review:
Can you be in love with two people at the same time, and have it be successful? This is the dilemma that thirty-six-year-old Elizabeth Evans-Klein finds herself in when she can't help but love two men at the same time.
In Hungry For Love, Elizabeth Klein is at a crossroads in her life. Elizabeth's husband Jesse, a fashion designer, has been in a coma for close to two years after a freak accident, leaving her feeling all alone and resentful that she can't move forward with her life. She also is fed up with being a dentist in her father's practice, they have a tense relationship, and what she really wants to do is become a cookie baker. Then there is the trauma of her mother's death due to breast cancer when Elizabeth was seven years old that has her in therapy sessions for hypochondria. Add in the family drama with her younger step-sister Jodie, and Elizabeth's therapist tells her that she needs to make a change in her life, she needs to take a break from everything and do something for herself. Who would have thought that a trip to the local zoo and a chance meeting with Australian zoo curator and divorced dad Aidan Sparks would lead to friendship and love? Just when Elizabeth was beginning to feel loved and happy again, Jesse comes out of the coma ... leaving her with a dilemma: she's in love with two men at the same time! Unable to decide who to choose to give her heart to, Elizabeth thinks that maybe she needs both men to love her because she is just that hungry for love.
Hungry For Love is an intriguing women's fiction story about the complexity of a woman's personal and professional life. Author Maya Sacher takes the reader into the inner workings of Elizabeth's life and the intertwining dilemmas that she faces. From flashbacks to Elizabeth and Jesse's relationship/marriage, to her ongoing family drama with her father, step-mother, and step-sister, to the exciting new relationship with Aidan, the reader goes along for the ride on the emotional roller coaster ride as Elizabeth deals with a variety of life dilemmas, choices, and decisions that not only will affect her but the other people in her life as well.
I really enjoyed reading this multi-layered story. I couldn't help but become intrigued by the love triangle, and how Elizabeth, Jesse, and Aidan each dealt with their emotional relationship arrangement. Add in the intensity of Elizabeth's family drama and the origin of her hypochondria, this is a realistic story that will make you wonder how you would handle these inner life dilemma's if you were in Elizabeth's shoes.
