Chef Luke Davis now cooks at the Frogmore Cafe in Beaufort, SC, after losing his Manhattan restaurant. Culinary show host Joy Ballard lacks cooking skills but has lots of personality, which gets her show picked up by a major network. What's a girl to do? Find someone who can cook, of course! Though there is an instant attraction between Joy and Luke, the two get along about as well as a moth and a flame. When Joy's secret is exposed, Luke steps up to the plate to save not only his reputation but also hers.
VERDICT Featuring excellent character development, this is a light, fun romance for readers who like foodie fiction. It will also attract fans of Hauck's other romances (Sweet Caroline; Love Starts with Elle).
