Publisher's Summary

Another delicious treat full of Southern sass, wit, and charm from the New York Times best-selling author of Savannah Breeze and Hissy Fit.

Chef extraordinaire Gina Foxton doesn't expect anything to be handed to her on a platter. After years of hard work, the former runner-up Miss Teen Vidalia Onion is now the host of her own local Georgia public television show called Fresh Start, and she's dating the show's producer.

But when her show gets canceled - and she catches her boyfriend in flagrante delicto with the boss' wife - Gina realizes that she's meant for bigger and better things. Namely, a gig on national television.

The Cooking Channel is looking for its next big star, and Gina is certain that she fits the bill. Trouble is, the execs also have their eyes on Mr. "Kill It and Grill It" Tate Moody, the star of a hunting, fishing, and cooking show named Vittles. Tate is the ultimate man's man, with a dog named Moonpie and a penchant for flannel shirts. He's also a tasty side of beef with a swooning female fan base. All Gina has on her side are a free-spirited, college-dropout sister and a mother who calls every single day.

Little does Gina know, though, that she and Tate are soon to embark on the cook-off of their lives, spiced up by a little ingredient called love.

Not as good as other MKA books

I love Mary Kay Andrews but this is my least favorite of her books. It's good but not nearly as good as her others.

Meh

If I didn't know this was Mary Kay Andrews I would never suspect it was written by her. Not her usual wit or humor very predictable

Delightful.

Started slow but "boy howdy" it got it be such a fun romp. Loved every minute. Perfect writing. Good narration but had to speed it to 1.25x. Adorable characters and I didn't want their story to end.

Ok Book

It kept me entertained for the most part. There were a couple times where I found my mind drifting elsewhere. Would I recommend this book? No probably not. It wasn't quite good enough.

Sweet as southern pecan pie!

This book was along the same outline as most easy reads, but it was adorable and delicious! I love to cook, so I enjoyed all the yummy food talk!
