Publisher's Summary

Get ready to cheer for Kate Cadogan, a forty-something woman who has spent her life trying to please her husband, her son, her mother, and her father without a moment's thought to her own needs. Until one day when a series of events causes her to slip back in time.... For the first time Kate sees her life clearly: her dreams of becoming a caterer; the delicate yet combustible relationship she shares with her mother; and the unflagging support of her two best friends. Kate finds the courage to make a break and energized by her newfound freedom, she creates a life all her own. Buoyant and deeply moving, Cover the Butter proves that starting over has nothing to do with age and everything to do with spirit.

Critic Reviews

"The dialogue is...exact; scenes play out fluidly and are nicely detailed, particularly in Kate's sophisticated foodyism. Kabak...does tell Kate's story with warmth and humor." (Publishers Weekly)
"This is a charming, compassionate look at how one woman discovers that self-fulfillment shouldn't be postponed forever." (Booklist)

Fabulous!

I struggled with this book: I wanted to know what was happening to Kate, but I didn't want the book to end! I loved the main character, Kate, and cheered for her as she grew and changed and WON!

I wish, wish, wish, that Carrie Kabak would write another novel - I loved her writing style, the storyline, and the emotions that all the characters brought me. Please Ms. Kabak, bring us more!

Kate Reading is an excellent narrator - I'm looking forward to finding more offerings from her.

Well Read/ Entertaining

So good to be able to share different opinions on books. I found Kate Readings narration to be wonderful! Not anything near annoying.
The story hit a cord with me, perhaps because I am the same age as the main character and can empathize. I enjoyed listening to the book and cheered Kate Cadogan to the finish!
