by Tracey Richardson
Every week millions of viewers tune in to watch Grace Wellwood transform basic ingredients into delicious cuisine. Her latest cookbook is flying off bookstore shelves and her trendy Boston restaurant is booked months in advance. She knows how to cook up success, but overlooks the basic ingredients to transform her private life into anything delicious—or even remotely satisfying.
Grace is deeply annoyed when a long overdue vacation is interrupted by catering a women’s pro golf tournament. Torrie Cannon, the Tour’s young hotshot, takes one look at the famous chef and embarks on her usual plan of seduction—hot tonight, gone tomorrow.
Torrie’s bewitching charms are undeniably enticing. In spite of the sizzle between them, however, Grace is done with fast food relationships. What Grace wants is the one thing that has never been a specialty on Torrie’s menu: love.
The glamorous worlds of haute cuisine and professional golf collide as Tracey Richardson explores the trust and sacrifice required before two women can choose more than a side order of love.
