Side Order of Loveby Tracey Richardson
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
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.

Grace Wellwood is a famous chef who owns her own restaurant and has a popular TV show. To everyone else she seems on top of the world, but appearances can be deceiving. When she ends a three year relationship with a married woman that was going nowhere, her friends encourage her to take some time off; so Grace retreats to a cottage by the sea. Her vacation is interrupted when her company is hired by golf champion Torrie Cannon to cater a tournament she's sponsoring. Torrie is younger than Grace and a "player" on and off of the golf course. She's used to jumping from bed to bed and doesn't feel a need for anything else until she meets Grace. Grace brings out something different in Torrie, something that Torrie doesn't know how to express properly, so she keeps coming off as a fast talker who hasn't finished growing up. If there's one thing Grace knows for certain, it's that she's not interested in any more relationships that have no chance of developing into something permanent and maturity, two things Torrie appears to lack. Torrie's challenge is to prove to Grace that she can meet her expectations for a new chance. This book has more than one conflict that holds the reader's interest. There is the tension between Grace and her lover, Grace and Torrie, and between two secondary characters who play significant roles. The age difference between Grace and Torrie, while not extreme, also factors into what happens between them. Richardson is able to blend these issues into a cohesive plot with likable characters. Side Order of Love, like Richardson's other books, delivers a story that is entertaining and engaging. Anyone looking for some simple reading worth passing a few hours with will find it here.
