Description

RITA Award winner!"A terrific read from a talented author. Made me hungry more than once. I can't wait to read what comes next."--Francine Rivers, New York Times bestselling author of The MasterpieceDenver chef Rachel Bishop has accomplished everything she's dreamed and some things she never dared hope, like winning a James Beard Award and heading up her own fine-dining restaurant. But when a targeted smear campaign causes her to be pushed out of the business by her partners, she vows to do whatever it takes to get her life back . . . even if that means joining forces with the man who inadvertently set the disaster in motion.Essayist Alex Kanin never imagined his pointed editorial would go viral. Ironically, his attempt to highlight the pitfalls of online criticism has the opposite effect: it revives his own flagging career by destroying that of a perfect stranger. Plagued by guilt-fueled writer's block, Alex vows to do whatever he can to repair the damage. He just doesn't expect his interest in the beautiful chef to turn personal.Alex agrees to help rebuild Rachel's tarnished image by offering his connections and his home to host an exclusive pop-up dinner party targeted to Denver's most influential citizens: the Saturday Night Supper Club. As they work together to make the project a success, Rachel begins to realize Alex is not the unfeeling opportunist she once thought he was, and that perhaps there's life--and love--outside the pressure-cooker of her chosen career. But can she give up her lifelong goals without losing her identity as well?

Review quote

Readers seeking sweet and funny romance will be delighted with this food-centered series opener from Laureano (London Tides). Rachel Bishop finds purpose in creating a fine dining experience as the head chef and part owner of an upscale Denver restaurant. But her dream job is suddenly ripped away by the unwitting hands of writer Alex Kanin: his New Yorker article about internet trolling that mentions a spurious, negative review of her restaurant goes viral--and business at her restaurant dries up. Alex feels guilty about the fallout, so to combat the negative publicity he joins forces with Rachel to restart her career, creating a unique supper club for Denver's foodies. A growing connection between Rachel and Alex adds unexpected spice to their partnership, leaving Rachel to discover whether the demise of one dream can lead to another coming true. Through Alex's Russian Orthodox roots Laureano explores, with a light touch, how different faith traditions can lead people towards the same convictions. Bright, jovial, and peppered with romance and delectable cuisine, this is a sweet and lively love story.--Publishers Weekly
