Mixing Up A Memory by Jena O'Connor
Elizabeth �Lizzie� Haggerty wants only one thing in life; to save the restaurant that has been in her family for generations, and build it into the thriving and successful place it once was.
Thomas Jordon wants only one thing in life. To buy the floundering Haggerty House Restaurant from the IRS, make it successful again, and flip it for a profit, thus proving to his hometown and the girl who broke his heart that he is not a failure.
But once they had both wanted the same thing: To leave the rural Upstate New York town of Hope Lake and head to the city, go to culinary school and become super-star chefs. That was before a single kiss changed everything.
Tom left Hope Lake with a broken heart and a new purpose-- to prove to the world that he was worth something. Ten years later, he has returned, ready to achieve his final goal even at the expense of a girl he loved so long ago. And Lizzie has spent the last decade wondering how the bravest moment of her life could have gone so horribly wrong.
But in Hope Lake, the recipe for love is as easy as Grandma Betty�s apple pie: a little bit of faith and a whole lot of forgiving make for the sweetest reunion ever mixed up in the kitchen at Haggerty House.
