"The Cookbook Collector" by Allegra Goodman.

Not the worst book I've read in the past six months, but definitely in the bottom tier.  Why:  The lead characters' story became diluted by too much attention to peripheral actors.  Not enough density or richness in the narrative to hold my attention as the characters cope with love and loss.  Love and loss:  So, what's new?  A nice book, but no magic here.
