Dining with Joy was a fun book to read. A story of a young woman who resented her dad’s love of cooking and did not herself learn to cook, takes over his TV cooking show when he dies. She’s been able to pull it off for several years because the people involved with the show all know and cover for her.
Luke Redmond, a good-looking chef, with some family issues of his own comes to town. He had tried unsuccessfully to own his own restaurant and now was cooking at a diner in the south. One of Joy’s best friends from High School is married to Luke’s cousin so fate throws them together and Joys new boss ask Luke to be her co-host.
Enter a national television rival who is out to ruin her reputation and her career and is successful. This also puts Luke in an awkward position with the people in the industry. The humiliation causes Joy to reevaluate who she is, her self worth and what she wants from life.
I enjoyed Dining with Joy and didn’t want to put it down until I finished it. I highly recommend it.
