Sadie on a Plate

Penguin Random House Audio. Mar. 2022. 10:38 hrs. ISBN 9780593552186. $20. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
After losing her job in a trendy Seattle restaurant, Sadie competes on the popular cooking show Chef Supreme. On the flight to New York, she hits it off with Luke, the handsome man seated next to her. She tells him that she won’t be able to see him again for at least six weeks because of the show. When filming is about to begin, however, Luke shows up there, too. Sparks fly as the two fight to keep their attraction a secret and at bay. Emily Lawrence presents a fun—and believable—narration that shows off her exquisite talents. Listeners can imagine themselves as witnesses of Sadie’s reality TV, behind-the-scenes experiences. Lawrence gives characters voices that reflect their personalities, bringing them to life and further pulling and engaging the listener into the tale. Her performance captures both the story’s lighthearted humor and the cooking competition’s fast-paced intensity.
VERDICT Listeners who enjoy their audiobook romance full of food and fun will find a winner in Elliot’s debut.
