Smashwords book reviews by Pat Barnhart

  • Waiter to the Rich and Shameless - Confessions of a Five-Star Beverly Hills Server on Dec. 20, 2014

    This engaging and fun tell all book will make you think twice about the importance of servers - waiters, bartenders, maitre d's - who populate the lives of celebrities and ordinary folks alike. Often "invisible", these servers know more about you than you might think. I enjoyed this book - great beach or vacation read - nothing to weighty or puzzling - just a great story, well told, fun, revealing, and presents an inside glimpse into the celebrity world of Beverly Hills' environs not all of us are privileged to inhabit. My advice: Buy it, you'll like it!
