Recipes for Disaster

Things are finally getting back to normal.  My trip was great and I will tell you about it tomorrow.  I got a lot of stitching done and quite a bit of reading also.  Therefore today I will leave you with my latest book review.

Today's Book Review:    Recipes for Disaster by Sheryl  Browne 

If you like to cook and love a little delectable romance, this book is perfect.

Lisa wants to impress Adam.  Adam wants to impress Lisa.  The problem arrives when each thinks the other can cook but, alas, neither one of them can.   Lisa, unselfishly, commits herself to catering a major event, hosted by her prospective mother-in-law!  Chaos and calamity follows.

Add in a spoonful of courage from Lisa's best friend, Becky, who really is the behind the scenes cook, a generous cupful of a scrumptious photographer, who has his lens focused on Becky, and a sprinkling of a mischievous Jack Russell and a parrot named Flint,  and, well... you can understand where the book gets its title. 

The book uses multiple narrators, who tell the story from their unique perspectives.  Recipes for Disaster uses humor - from the first page to the last page. It is humor that pulls you in, and keeps your attention.

Not only are the characters creating all kinds of delicious foods, making the finished product sound so real, the author is very generous, and gives the reader all the recipes, with very detailed instructions. If you love cooking, baking, and trying new recipes, this book is for you. If you like reading a novel with a strong plot, this book is for you. This book is such a good blend of fiction and food!
Just one comment about the cover of the book - it is distracting! But, distracting in a good way! (hmmm, hmmm)

Until next time....
