One More Taste by Melissa Cutler

This book appealed to me because lately I have been missing home (Texas) and the heroine in the story is a chef, and lately I have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen trying to learn new things about cooking. I didn’t realize it until I was a few chapters in, but the setting and some of the characters really seemed somewhat familiar to me, and that’s when it hit me. I read the novella for this series a while back, I think sometime last year. Once I figured that out, I was actually pretty excited to see how things were going to turn out. So Knox is basically coming back to his family’s home, but not the family home where he grew up.

So catalyst for this whole book is that our heroine, Carina, is the part of the family that owns the Texas Hill Country Resort, which is known for having divorce free weddings during the first twenty-five days in December. It’s a huge draw for the hotel, So when Carina’s sister is suppose to be getting married during the whole promotional time, and then runs out on the ceremony, Carina does the only thing she can in order to keep PR up, she enters into a sham marriage with the hottest cowboy who works on the ranch, James. I’m not sure how I felt about the whole sham marriage thing, because I couldn’t believe how ready and willing Carina’s family was to go along with the whole thing, but once I understood more of the characters motives, it worked out for me. I really liked Carina, […]
