I'm a big fan of Rachel Hauck's, not only for her as an author, but also for her heart for God. She's a true inspiration and watching her lead worship at the ACFW conferences every year is a real blessing. This is one woman touched by God, who is constantly blessing others through her writing, her singing, and her heart.
So, when I realized I somehow missed Dining With Joy, I had to remedy the situation right away and bought a copy. Having really enjoyed Love Starts with Elle and Sweet Caroline, I couldn't NOT read the next in the Low Country series! And I wasn't disappointed. Rachel's writing is smooth and delightful, her characters real and relatable, her stories intriguing all while not being afraid to dive deep into issues of the heart.
I highly recommend this novel! (and everything else Rachel has ever written)
Here's the blurb:
Joy Ballard has a secret: she’s a cooking show host who can’t really cook.
When her South Carolina-based cooking show, Dining With Joy, is picked up by a major network, Joy Ballard’s world heats up like a lowcountry boil.
Joy needs help. Then she meets chef Luke Davis who moved to Beaufort after losing his Manhattan restaurant. A cook at the Frogmore Cafe, he’s paying debts and longing to regain his reputation in the elite foodie world.
Luke and Joy mix like oil and water…until Joy is exposed on national television. With her career and his reputation both under fire, they’ll have to work together to fix the mess. Is it possible that they can learn to feast on God’s love and dine with joy?
Me again -
How can a story about a chef who can't cook NOT be fantastic? Add a hunky hero who CAN cook, and well, things "heat up" quite nicely ;)
