Additional Information

From Anita Hughes, author of Monarch Beach, comes Market Street, a delicious story of a department store heiress, her messy marriage, and her passion for food

Cassie Blake seems to lead a charmed life as the heiress to Fenton's, San Francisco's most exclusive department store. But when she discovers her husband, Aidan, a handsome UC Berkeley professor, has had an affair with a student, she flees to the comfort of her best friend Alexis's Presidio Heights mansion, where she wonders if she should give their marriage one more chance.
Whether or not she can forgive Aidan is not the only choice Cassie has to make. Cassie's mother is eager to have her oversee the opening of Fenton's new Food Emporium, which Fenton's hopes will become San Francisco's hottest gourmet shopping destination. Cassie's true passion has always been food, not fashion, and Cassie suspects her mother might be trying to lure her into the Fenton's fold by entrusting her with such an exciting opportunity. And then there is James, the architect designing the Emporium, who is quietly falling in love with her…

Food, fashion, fun, romance and heartbreak~~MARKET STREET by Anita Hughes has it all. If you're looking for a book to take with you for that last beach trip of the summer~~I recommend this one.

Cassie and Alexis have been best friends since they went to private school together. Now in their 30's, both women are supposedly living their dream lives. Cassie, a "foodie" and heiress to the upscale Fenton's Department Store, is married to Aiden, an ethics professor at UC Berkeley, and spends her days volunteering to teach children about gardening~~her passion. Alexis, married to globe-trotting, financial wizard Carter, spends her days redecorating her behemoth home and taking exercise classes. Both of their lives are about to change, dramatically.

While spending the day together the best friends find themselves covering the jewelry counter at Fenton's for a brief moment. Molly Payne, a student at UC Berkeley, wants to return a necklace that was given to her by... Read more
Cassie Fenton Blake has lived in San Francisco all of her life, and has memories of spending days hanging out in the Fenton Department Store owned by her mother, Diana. Her mother has always wanted her to work in the store, but Cassie's passion is organic vegetable gardening, and across the Bay, helps Chez Panisse owner Alice Waters in her garden. Cassie believes that her marriage to Aidan Blake, an ethics professor at Berkeley, is everything she needs and that her life is just about perfect.

Best friend Alexis has a husband who travels around the world for months at a time, but enjoys lavishing pricey goodies on his wife. But she finds herself bored and listlessly trying to seek out adventures.

Then an unexpected encounter at the store one day turns Cassie's life upside down, and starts a landslide of doubts and fears about her husband.

What does Cassie do after confronting her husband? How will a special project initiated by her mother turn into... Read more
MARKET STREET has all the ingredients of page-turning escapism: likeable characters--except for the dirtbag husband, a glimpse of high society life in San Francisco, and steamy sex. Add in mouth-watering descriptions of gourmet food and more designer fashion than a girl can dream of...and why would you put this book down to return to real life?

The themes of the novel drew me in straight away: self-discovery in the midst of betrayal and the importance of female friendships. The writing is warm and cozy, and the female characters are wonderful. My favorite part of the novel was the friendship between the heroine and her BFF. I loved that Alexis opened her home--and her wardrobe--to Cassie without once judging her or dishing out harsh marriage advice. Everyone needs a friend like Alexis.

If you're looking for the perfect weekend read, this is it.
