Chef's Delight: The New Year's Eve Club based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I’ve read many of Teresa Carpenter’s books over the last few years and this one moved to my number one slot for her and in to my personal top ten list. I was so engrossed in the story and the characters that time stood still and I forgot I was in my house instead of at The Neighborhood Joint. The story of Joss and Heather was full of laughter and tears and irritations and life in a good way. What made it even more special was that through it all Heather was surrounded by family and friends that loved her and she was able to prod Joss along. If you are looking for a steamy read to pass the time at the pool with the kids this summer, then click that button and load away. It’s worth every minute of reading. I hope you enjoy the story of Heather and Joss as much as I did. There are a few tiny spoilers I’m about to release so stop here if you haven’t read it yet. There is a thought process that comes up in the beginning that themes through that had me sitting and shaking my head in the affirmative, “…kiss you or slap you.” That’s all I’m saying on that. You have to read to find out why it’s so memorable. The second area that I’m thinking about two days later is the battle of the keys. At least twice I had to wipe tears of laughter out of my eyes over this.
I was excited to review this book and the entire series of books. This series is about a group of girls, friends from college, and their getting together on New Year’s Eve. When they were in college, they made a list of qualities they wanted to find in a husband. With all of them single again, they make a new list and challenge to find someone by next year. Out of the entire series, I think I would have to choose the man from this book specifically, even though I thought all of the males were great. Joss was an excellent character and would be my type of man. Even though he was supposed to be tough and rough, because of past experience, he actually was the biggest romantic IMO. I really liked the relationship and how it developed between Joss and Heather. It might have been a little preemptive in the beginning, but it definitely, and I'm glad, worked out. This story was more than just the romance between Joss and Heather, but a realization of all relationships. I really enjoyed this book of the series. This book wraps up this series very well. I very much enjoyed the entire series and was glad I had the opportunity to do the review.
