Seeing Me Naked by Liza Palmer

seeing-naked1This is a novel about Elisabeth Page. She’s a pastry chef in an upscale restaurant in L.A. She’s the daughter of two-time Pulitzer Prize winning, novelist Ben Page, and heiress to the Foster Family Fortune, Ballard Foster. Her brother, Rascal Page, is also a famous writer following in, and in some ways surpassing, his father’s footsteps. Elisabeth has some mighty big shoes to fill and isn’t exactly sure of where to start. She started with a five-year plan to own her own patisserie and eleven years later, she’s still working in the same kitchen.

Elisabeth soon meets Daniel Sullivan. He is a basketball coach and new to the city. As he knows nothing of her famous family, she finds she is able to open up to him more freely. In doing so, she discovers who she really is. Not a shadow, but her own unique self.

I found this book to be just as good as Palmer’s first book, Conversations with the Fat Girl. Her characters are intelligent and witty, and sarcastic as hell. The Page family are quite profane despite their wealthy upbringing. I absolutely loved the relationship that Elisabeth has with her brother.

This story proves that it’s true what they say.You can’t be happy with someone else until you’re happy with yourself. Seeing Me Naked isn’t just about showing that special someone all of your intimate parts, it’s about letting someone know you and all of your deepest, darkest secrets. You’d be amazed at how much you learn about yourself through this process. I guess you get to see yourself naked through someone else’s eyes.

 

This book also includes 5 recipes that are mentioned within the story. That was a pleasant surprise for me waiting at the end of the novel.

Liza Palmer is the next best thing and one of my favourite chic-lit authors to date!
