Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Rochelle Alers welcomes listeners back to romantic New Orleans in her warm and sexy series about four very different women embarking on a new adventure.

Sometimes you go in search of a new beginning. Other times, it finds you. Tonya Martin enjoys her job as a professional chef for a Wall Street bank, her East Harlem walk-up, and the freedom to live and love by her own rules - right up until the day she finds herself suddenly downsized. But a spontaneous trip to New Orleans opens up a new opportunity. With time on her hands and her daughter soon graduating college, Tonya has the chance to reach for her own long-cherished dream - opening a restaurant on her friend Hannah's beautiful Garden District estate.

While Hannah and her new husband work on transforming the DuPont House into a luxury inn, Tonya explores local cuisine, taking an apprentice role at famed restaurant Chez Toussaints. Gage Toussaint's mix of Creole, Cajun, and African ancestry is deeply attractive, and the sexy chef clearly wants their friendship to become much more. Drawn to him yet hesitant given their previous unhappy marriages, Tonya wonders if it's too late to leap into love again. Could Gage be just the ingredient she needs to make this delicious new life complete?

Could have been better

Though I purchased this for my summer beach book, I expected a smoother story with somewhat believable characters. Tania and Gage’s story was all over the place. It appeared that the author wasn’t sure which direction she wanted to take them so she threw all possibilities into the story.

Couldn't put it down

Loved it most memorable was the Valentine's Day dinner Tonya fixed and her marriage proposal from Gage, her restaurant names & family love.
