I’m really enjoying the new book from EM! There’s a real sense of commercial kitchen life, the ups and the downs, the triumphs and the struggles. I really like the way the story engages all the senses – I can taste and smell not just the food, but experience the heat and the noise in the kitchen. The scenes are vivid with colour and emotion. And the tension between the main characters…? *phew*.
Anyway, back to reading the last 25% in time for Christmas 🙂
And in case I can tempt you to join me in my (totally calorie-free!) reading…
BLURB: A Novella in the Delectable Series
Thom Kennedy Leyton returns to San Francisco to take up the reins of Graze, one of the city’s best restaurants, years after he lost his job when his innovative new set of recipes was stolen. Thom’s loss of self-esteem eventually caused his boyfriend, Blake Warner, to end their relationship, sending Thom into a deep depression.
Now, cured of fifty excess pounds and any attraction to Blake, Thom’s back in town. Blake catches him off guard when he visits Graze several days in a row, and Thom lets himself get caught up in Blake’s allure, despite knowing better.
Thom juggles a renewed relationship with Blake, a Christmas visit from his parents, and an important holiday menu based on a Twelve Days of Christmas theme. When an old acquaintance reveals that Blake knows more about the theft of the recipes than he lets on, Thom doesn’t know whom to trust. But the truth isn’t quite that simple, and Thom won’t be able to decide if Blake deserves a place in his life until he learns exactly what happened years ago.
