The Last Chinese Chef by Nicole Mones

The Last Chinese Chef

Nicole Mones knocked another one out of the park for me with The Last Chinese Chef!  The story begins when Maggie McElroy must travel to China to attend to a paternity suit against her late husband’s estate.  Maggie, a food writer, agrees to interview a Chinese-American chef while she is there for an article on traditional Chinese cuisine.  The author takes us on a fascinating trip through modern and ancient Chinese culture, epicurean delights, and history, and wraps it all up in a romance that will leave you sighing and wanting more.  It was a great way to start off my summer reading!
