Lists with This Book. From page one it was clear that Belle was a person of privilege, heck in the description it tells you this, so no surprise there, but what I was not expecting was for Belle to be so freaking codependent. If you're moving to New York City but your grandfather is paying your rent - you're not really moving to New York City. I felt this book moved slow and abruptly ended. It took Belle the whole book to find a boyfriend and then they are a perfect match. Aug 15, 2011 Amy rated it did not like it.

My house work had to wait as I couldn't put Belle in the Big Apple down long enough to accomplish anything. As I read, I kept imagining the book played out on the big screen, wondering who would play each character.

I can't wait to prepare some of the book's wonderful recipes. Ms. Parkhurst is a refreshing, new voice on the scene. I can't wait to read her next book.
