Read full description of the books Making Up for Lost Time:"The eighth is for eternity."
This is one of my favorite books by KK and that is saying a lot since she has a plethora to choose from.
Jamie Onassis comes home to a large envelope from her Aunt Em. Nothing peculiar but as she starts to read she finds that her Aunt has died. This was a big enough shocker as she would have done anything for the woman who raised her and taught her how to cook, who nurtured her even though they probably weren't blood related. Aunt Em didn't want to drag things out after fighting her illness and she sure as hell didn't want anyone to witness it either. In usual style Em knew how to end it all, leaving Jamie some money and her own daughter Kathy nothing at all. So Jamie packs a bag and heads for home. Liesel, Em's partner, is living in the house they shared and the only thing missing besides Em is the boarding house that they used to own and live. When she gets into town she visits old haunts and stops by the inn to see how it is doing, while there she finds out that the owner is willing to sell it. Seeing this as an opportunity to make something of herself and have something to call her own. So, with Em's money she buys the place back and soon discovers the previous owner didn't tell her all the problems that were ignored for so long. Facing a daunting task of starting the restaurant up again and trying to figure out how she will afford the repairs that need to be done before she can open the rest of the place.
Enter Valkyrie Valentine, an inspiring Bob Villa/Martha Stewart type host that wants her own TV show. After a weekend getaway near the town where Jamie's restaurant is she decides to stay just a little longer. While getting lunch one day she overhears Jamie discussing the disrepair of the hotel. A light bulb goes off and she has a quick brain storm thinking about her chance to have her own show. So she introduces herself to Jamie and proposes a you scratch my back I'll scratch yours scenario. Jamie needs major repairs and Val needs a place to show as her own and Val needs to learn how to cook since the premise of her show is a a woman who can do it all. At first Jamie is skeptical, so Val offers to widen one of the doors so it is up to code. Impressed with her work Jamie okays the future projects but is still wary of lying to people about how Val can cook...
What ensues is an up and down tumultuous relationship both professionally and personally. Read along as the women get closer, learn to trust and set their needs aside to please the other...
