Peek Inside Recipe for Love

Sparks fly when Celebrity Chef Tilly matches wits with the annoyingly sexy Jordan. As members of the judging panel for the Personal Chef Showdown, they agree on only one thing: Maxwell, the third judge on their panel is an arrogant pain in the butt. When Max shows dead, Tilly and Jordan are thrust smack in the middle of TV’s most shocking homicide and everyone is a suspect. As Tilly and Jordan are pulled deeper into the investigation, those pesky sparks of antagonism transform into incredibly inconvenient, red-hot attraction. As the bodies start piling up, Tilly and Jordan must find the killer—and a recipe for love—before they become the murderer’s next course!

Sparks and insults fly when celebrity Chef Tilly Danes matches wits with the annoyingly sexy Jordan Kelly. As members of the judging panel for the Culinary Channel’s Personal Chef Showdown, they agree on only one thing: Maxwell Etheridge, the third judge on their panel is an arrogant pain in the butt. Neither one would mind seeing him strung up like a ham hock. When their nemesis shows up not only dead but also missing an important body part, Tilly and Jordan are thrust smack in the middle of TV’s most shocking homicide…

Everyone is a suspect: the show’s host, the contestants, and even the victim’s lover. When Tilly and Jordan are pulled deeper into the investigation, those pesky sparks of antagonism transform into undeniable, incredibly inconvenient, red-hot attraction. And if they thought the sparks were hot while fighting, the heat between the sheets is an inferno. As the bodies start piling up, Tilly and Jordan must find the killer—and a recipe for love—before they become the murderer’s next course!

Read the full review on Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous.

As I was reading the story, it was clear that Jordan was the first to acknowledge his developing feelings for Tilly, which, I will admit, surprised me. Between the two of them, he was the far more acerbic and Tilly's being a woman didn't stop h... ...more

About the author

Dyann Love Barr

Dyann Love Barr is a retired personal chef who lives in the Kansas City area with her husband and a hermit crab. Don’t ask. When she’s not writing, she’s belly dancing, sewing, and taking care of her two granddaughters. When she started writing many, many years ago, she thought ‘how hard could it be?’ It’s more difficult than staring down the barrel of an automatic rifle when she was stopped by the Mexican army, or her adventure in Africa. She came back with a mysterious spider bite on her—but that’s another story.
