For a novel about two sisters, this book spent a great deal of time on secondary characters. I picked up this book not because I wanted to read about the dot com era but because I was interested in the cookbook collection! By the end of the book I had a good sense of who the character Jess was, but Emily remained a mystery. Her character was not fleshed out enough and her identity was too wrapped up in Veritech and Jonathan. I wish I had only read the chapters with Jess and George, three stars for their story.
