Publisher's Summary

Cal Buchanan needs a top-flight chef to take over his failing Seattle restaurant, The Waterfront. He can afford to hire the best in town, the only problem is that the best happens to be his ex-wife, Penny Jackson.

Penny really needs this opportunity, but she doesn't need the distraction of working with her ex. She's sworn off romance; she's even having a baby on her own. But before she knows it, the heat is on, and the attraction between her and Cal moves from a low simmer to a full boil.

The rest should be easy as pie, but a secret from Dessert Cal's past could spoil everything. Maybe it's true that too many cooks spoil the broth, but then, maybe two are enough to make it irresistible.

Critic Reviews

"When you think of passion, drama and heartwarming stories, think Susan Mallery." ( Romantic Times)
"A wonderful cast of characters, from the truly evil family matriarch to the argumentative, stubborn, but close-knit Buchanan siblings. Glimpses into the everyday workings of a restaurant, from buying produce to selecting wines, add to the enjoyment." ( Booklist)

DELICIOUS

I loved this book, her writing is very similar to Susan Elizabeth Phillips which I love. I downloaded the other 3 books in the series and looking foward to a good listen. I wish they would add more downloads from this author, I made the request. I hope to find more funny, romantic books.

cute, sweet

The is my first Susan Mallory book and I liked it. I read the reviews and learned this is the first book in a series of 4 so I plan to listen to them in order. The characters are good and I look forward to hearing about how the lives of the other brothers and sister turn out. Gloria is a human nightmare and I hope at some point she softens. This is a typical romance book but who doesn't like happy endings!

Delicious food... So so story...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend it although this is not a fantastic book. Susan Mallery stories, specially if narrated by Therese Plummer are like eating a delicious chocolate. You always enjoy it even if it's not good for you.

Would you be willing to try another book from Susan Mallery? Why or why not?

Yes, I would except the Fools Gold series which has a terrible narrator.

Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

Therese Plummer is the best narrator ever. My favorite character on this book was Penny. She was broken hearted from her divorced but she bounced back stronger, whiling to be a single working mom. She was excellent in her job and not a wimp. She stood up to the evil witch of a grandmother Cal has.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Cooking up a storm...

Any additional comments?

The story is based around a divorced couple who rediscovers each other while trying to save a failing restaurant in Seattle. I've listened to all the books in this series. This one was my least favorite of all but you should listen to it to get the background info that will make you enjoy the other books more.

Delectable Series

This is the first of the 3 (4th due out soon) Buchanan Series. It is fun, sexy, intriguing and informative (I had no idea what went on before receiving my delectable meals at fine dining establishments), entertaining and warming. I love all three (so far) of these gems but be certain to read them in order. I read them out of sequence and had to re-listen to one of them to pick up on several past characters that were glanced over in later books. Listen and enjoy!

Great Start to a Great Series!

Wow, I was so happy to see this title, as I've purchased the others in the series. I had knowledge of Cal and Penny's relationship via the other books, but not the intimate details. So, listening to this audio, filled in lots of blanks. The book was good, but the series definitely gets better with Irresistible and Sizzling.

I definitely recommend this title, as you will get hooked on the Buchanans! Enjoy.

Great Duet

With Susan Mallery as the author and Therese Plummet narrating how can it go wrong. I love the growth in so many characters, not just the 2 main ones. Can’t wait for next book

Really well written romance

This book would have been a 5 Star - it is well written, the story is interesting, the characters have some depth - however the ending was rushed and the story looped back once too often, we resolved the ‘drama’ three times, seriously that’s enough. Then some time on happily ever after - rather than the 30 second rush at the end.
The story was interesting enough I already have the second book in my library

Without Content

I picked out this book because I thought it would be a fun, easy read. I like chick lit and I thought the chef theme would be a neat backdrop. There's not enough going on inside this book but the romance, which is totally predictable, and a few subplots. I could not finish it. Soooo boring to listen to the characters talk to one another about the same plot lines. It was an empty book that actually motivated me to review it which I do not normally do because I could have used my audible credits on so many more deserving books.
