A Kiss for the Cook

Written by Melinda Curtis

Claudia Giordano is a whiz in the kitchen. She should be. Her family are world-renowned chefs. A temporary blip in her own career means she can come home to help her grandmother and her fledgling pizzeria business. Claudia thinks this will be a walk in the park compared with what she's faced in the past. Little does she realize she's just entered the culinary equivalent of a war zone.

Lorenzo Diaz's family owns the Harmony Valley restaurant directly opposite Nonna's pizza place. His parents, brothers and sisters—cousins, too—all rely on the humble eatery for their livelihood. The last thing they want to see is master chef Claudia across the street. Enzo has big ideas and even bigger dreams and makes an ally of Claudia, rather than an enemy.

Once the two start cooking together, they quickly realize how deep their feelings run. Family loyalty is also important and soon each faces a difficult choice. Add in a town of charming eccentrics, some great food and numerous nosy relatives who ask a lot of awkward questions and it's a recipe for disaster…or possibly true love!
