Grace Coulter has been hiding in the kitchen of her family restaurant since she was eight years old. That’s when the name-calling began. Stretch, skinny-minny, boy in girl’s clothes, all because of the slender height that had her towering over even the tallest boys in the class.

Now, nearly thirty years later, Grace is head chef of the failing restaurant and still hiding in the kitchen. Like many businesses during the current recession, Coulter’s may have to start laying off employees or even close. But Grace has a plan to save the restaurant and the people she’s known all her life; a plan that will force her to go out into the world and face her fears.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I just finished “A Slice of Life” and loved it. Love, laughter, sadness and a wonderful ending! Nothing like a warm and cozy book to spend the afternoon with on a cold day.


I loved this story, and know I’ll read it again. I had a big smile on my face for the last 10 – 15 pages. I truly enjoyed and cared about all the characters.


I would recommend this book. There were no inappropriate parts, the characters prayed over dinner and once for strength. There were certainly virtues displayed throughout the story which made the reading so much more enjoyable for me.


This was a great, put-you-in-a-better-mood book! Everybody has a story and that is a good thing to remember when dealing with other in this world! I will definitely be checking out other books by this author! I’m a Margaret Lake fan!!


I loved this story from beginning to end. The author did a wonderful job of telling such a touching story between 3 lost characters that each found themselves and each other. I will recommend this to my reading friends.
