Hello, Sunshine by Laura Dave

Sunshine Mackenzie has it all…until her secrets come to light.
Sunshine Mackenzie is living the dream—she’s a culinary star with millions of fans, a line of #1 bestselling cookbooks, and a devoted husband happy to support her every endeavor.

And then she gets hacked.

When Sunshine’s secrets are revealed, her fall from grace is catastrophic. She loses the husband, her show, the fans, and her apartment. She’s forced to return to the childhood home—and the estranged sister—she’s tried hard to forget. But what Sunshine does amid the ashes of her own destruction may well save her life.

In a world where celebrity is a careful construct, Hello, Sunshine is a compelling, funny, and evocative novel about what it means to live an authentic life in an inauthentic age.

My Thoughts
This is the first book I have read from Laura and I LOVE it!  She has a way words, they flow from character to character, event to event seamlessly. 
Can I just say - I would love to have Sunshine's job, um amazing?  But like Sunshine, I can honestly say I'm not much of a cooker - unless you count chicken tenders and fries oh and maybe steak HAHA.
I would die of embarrassment if my world was turned upside down in such a CRAZY way!  I mean naked photos, cheating scandal and jeez the fact that she can't really cook?  She looses her husband, her job, the roof over her head or oh yea her dignity at the snap of a finger!  (Not going to lie, living in the Hamptons, not so terrible though!)
Will she survive or has sunshine set for good?

Drink Selection
Um, Pirate Fashion looks to die for!
