At forty-three, Myriam has been a wife, mother, and lover--but never a restauranteur. When she opens Chez Moi in a quiet neighborhood in Paris, she has no idea how to run a business, but armed only with her love of cooking, she is determined to try. Barely able to pay the rent, Myriam secretly sleeps in the dining room and bathes in the kitchen sink, while struggling to come to terms with the painful memories of her past. But soon enough her delectable cuisine brings her many neighbors to Chez Moi, and Myriam finds that she may get a second chance at life and love. Redolent with the sights, smells, and tastes of Paris, "Chez Moi" is a charming story that will appeal to the many readers who fell in love with Joanne Harris's "Chocolat" and Laura Esquivel's "Like Water for Chocolate.
