Menu For Love
Menu for Romance by Kaye Dacus is all about communication and letting your feelings be know. Mere has been in love with Major for a number of years and he with her, but neither will admit it to the other. His mother creates a problem for him that causes him to keep his distance for fear of rejection by Mere. She thinks he’s just not interested. Then enter Ward the contractor who will restore Mere’s recently purchased home and dates Mere several times. Kaye has created a great story around the cast of characters we first met in Stand-In Groom. One thing for sure, eat before you read or you’ll be running to the fridge or pantry for a snack with nearly every chapter. Kaye has a good handle on what it takes to be an event planner or a chef and weaves her plot around the events Mere plans and the sumptuous menus by Chef Major O’Hara. Another thing I liked…they are John Wayne fans and his movies play a key role in getting Mere Guidry and Major O’Hara together. How Kaye accomplishes this will bring a smile to your heart.
