Back Cover Blurb:
After eight years of unrequited love, Meredith Guidry decides it’s time to move on and try to find someone who’ll love her in return. So she makes a prayerful New Year’s resolution to meet someone new and end her single status by year’s end. And when the handsome contractor she hires to finish remodeling her house asks her out, it looks like her prayer may have been answered. But dating Ward doesn’t seem to do anything to lessen Meredith’s feelings toward a certain chef she works with every day.
Executive Chef Major O’Hara has sworn off relationships, knowing he could never saddle the woman he loves with a family situation like his. When he’s offered the opportunity of a lifetime—to open ihis own restaurant—will he leave his comfortable job and Meredith—to chase his lifelong dream? And when it looks like he’s about to lose Meredith Guidry to another man, can he concoct a menu for romance to win her back?
Will God serve up a solution before it’s too late?
I loved Meredith’s character. Now, I hadn’t read the first book, and I don’t feel like I’ve missed anything. The development each character undergoes was fun to watch. And, of course, the romance. That’s the best part, right? It’s tastefully executed and left me hanging for more to see how it panned out.
I’m one who usually reads action-packed paranormal romance, so this one was a little slow for me in some parts. But that’s just personal taste not a reflection of Kaye Dacus’ story telling capabilities. The writing is tight and the tension kept me reading.
And I just loved the ending. Nicely done, Kaye Dacus. I would recommend this to anyone who is a romantic at heart for sure!
