Overview

Penelope Anders can't cook, yet she writes the very successful Country Kitchen Cooking blog for the Southern Cooking Channel. Everything is going fine until she's informed that the new CEO ran a contest giving one lucky winner the opportunity to spend Christmas with her at the Anders farm in Crater's Corners, Tennessee. But there is one big problem. Penelope doesn't own the Anders farm anymore. Derek Smythe does. And she still hadn't forgiven him for buying the place.

Derek Smythe needs a new roof and a new septic system at the farm so he can sell the place and move on with his life. When the producer for the Southern Cooking Channel shows up wanting Penelope Anders to return to the farm to fulfill a contest he believes his prayer has been answered and agrees for the price of the repairs. The producer calls his bluff and agrees. But is he ready for Penelope Anders to walk back into his life only to walk out again?

Editorial Reviews

Amazon
You just can't help loving Penelope from the very first scene where you discover she eats Chinese delivery almost every day. She blogs about cooking in order to pay the bills, but she cannot cook.
A hunky guy with a vintage farmhouse and some secrets of his own.

I adored Derek and Penelope's story. A love story, a Christmas story, an inspirational romance with the perfect blend of character...

Short and charming, “A Country Kitchen Christmas” by Leann Tyler reflects the goodwill of the Holiday Season as Penelope Anders is guided back to her family’s farm which she sold six years prior and hasn’t visited since then.  Tyler weaves a story that engulfs the reader in a charade which allows the sprigs of love to flourish. Penelope is a blogger for the official website of the Country Kitchen TV program which airs on the Southern Cooking Channel.  The producer of the program, Dana Stevens, is informed by the network’s CEO, Barton Bixby, that he has run a contest for the show.  The prize is one winner will spend Christmas week from December 21 - 28 at Anders Farm, the once ancestral home of Penelope which she writes about on her blog to give it authenticity.  The only problem is Penelope sold the farm to a childhood friend, Derek Smythe.  Somehow Derek has to be convinced to go along with the charade which Penelope started in order to save her job and a contest that is meant to build up the show’s credibility. Part of the charm of the story is how Tyler brings together Penelope and Derek, and then Barton and Dana in this Christmas holiday escape.  Tyler creates characters that are good at heart even though they use a ploy to obtain what they want.  “A Country Kitchen Christmas” is a charming tale that will put a smile on readers face and encourage them to believe that love prevails.
