Dining with Joy is the first of Rachel Hauck’s books that I have read, but am looking forward to reading more. It is a delightful and easygoing story. The story is very clear and is hard to put the book down. When Joy Ballard’s father passed away unexpectedly, she stepped in to host his TV cooking show. One problem, is that Joy cannot cook. She takes steps over the years to keep up her charade. Then Luke Redmond, a chef that lost his own restaurant joins the show. Through a series of circumstances their relationship takes a number of turns.
When things start to unravel, Joy has to make a decision to choose herself instead of taking care of her mother and her nieces who were deserted by their parents.
The story was intriguing and kept you guessing what was going to happen.
I recommend this book for anyone looking for a good heart whelming story.
