Set in Milwaukee, a chef (Lou – short for Louella), falls in love with a restaurant reviewer (Al). Neither knows what each other does for a living, and to make matters worse, Al wrote such a terrible review of Lou’s restaurant, that she now can’t afford to stay open.
I’m not a big fan of chick lit and I only chose this book because it met a requirement for a reading challenge (cake on the cover). That said, I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Reichert definitely appealed to the foodie in me. At one point Lou prepares a Cuban roasted pork shoulder with Cuban black beans for Al that I literally salivated over. Guess what I’m making for dinner tonight? While it’s not a five star work of great literature, I do recommend it for those who love food and appreciate a good romance.
