Sandi Cramer loved to cook, and she ran her show on her uncle’s TV station, KANT. All went well until her uncle went bankrupt and had to sell the station. The new management kept her on because her show had high ratings. Then things started happening. Her car tires were punctured, her pans were drilled with holes, her can of sugar was switched with salt, her oven was tampered with. It went on and on... Someone was sabotaging her and putting her job on the line. She had to find the culprit and also battle against her romantic feelings toward the new manager, Josh Pressman. In Love Cookin’ by Lois Carroll, Sandi will realize that people aren’t really what they seem and that she can’t determine the depth of her love until she faces a test.
Love Cookin’ by Lois Carroll is a contemporary romance novel laced with suspense and humor. The journey to finding the culprit who was sabotaging Sandi kept me on edge and discovering the guilty person chilled me. A lesson there is that the only ones who can truly hurt you are within your circle. Also, the plot reiterated that the heart wants what it wants and we can do little or nothing about it. Lois’s writing style was fun, and I loved the language usage appropriate for laid-back townies, like in Annie’s character. The Love Cookin’ storyline was unique and realistic, and the continuity was flawless. It’s a brilliant book that will appeal to lovers of romance novels with depth. I enjoyed it and would love to read more from Lois Carroll.
