Book Review: Recipes for Disaster by Sheryl Browne

Recipes for DisasterWhat’s it about?

She’s a single. He’s a widower. She wants him. He wants her. She wants to impress. So does he. There’s just one catch – she can’t cook. To get him, she needs to get past the big fish – his mother. Lucky her, she’s got an Ace up her sleeve and all she’s got to do is impress this one time. Bad luck, though, her new guy can’t cook either, her dog Rambo is on the loose and now they’ve got to pull off the big lunch at the club. Will it be a match made in heaven? Will they be able to pull off a culinary miracle? Will their combined efforts result in love at first bite? Or is it simply a Recipe for Disaster?

My thoughts

This was the first book passed to me for review by Love a Happy Ending so was keen to read what they’d recommend.

This is a light, easy quick rom com of a read intermingled with lots of recipes. Basically Lisa wants to impress new beau Adam and his mother with her culinary skills – unfortunately she doesn’t have any and neither does he. The book revolves around this big do at the golf club that Lisa managed to get herself roped into catering and with the help of her best friend Becky we’re given a step by step guide to the menu.

Unfortunately I’m not a cooking lover and don’t even own a cook book so I have to admit I skipped through the pages of recipes and methods – it just didn’t interest me. And that dog…Rambo, sorry, found it really irritating but I do appreciate there are animal lovers that love their dogs more than people.

Just because a book isn’t for me, doesn’t make it a bad book. If you love cooking, dogs and a good mushy chick lit this is perfect for you, just not my cup of tea this time.
