Review and Giveaway: Too Many Cooks by Shirley Ann Wilder


Book description: 
Bitter news leads a San Diego widow and widower to true love—and to a scheme to marry off their adult children, a plan that goes deliciously awry.


Gaetano Lorenzo was the sweetest man that the widowed Estelle Bennett had ever met. That morning began terribly, with awful news, but now the owner and head chef of a local San Diego ristorante was offering up Italian delights: red wine, delicious food, walks on the beach, laughter when she’d never thought she’d laugh again…. Estelle felt twenty-five. She and Gaetano had found the recipe for love, and a simple variation might just get their adult children to settle down, too. A scoop of sugar, two ladlefuls of lust, a pinch of deception and a whole 24 oz.-can of danger— Suddenly, ingredients were coming from everywhere! But kitchens are crazy places, and variety is the spice of life. And for anything to get cooked, things have to get hot.

My review:
Too Many Cooks is a sweet (well, it's a little spicy) romance with some danger thrown in. Everything starts with some eavesdropping and a misunderstanding, and pretty much goes downhill from there. This book is a two-romances-for-the-price-of-one deal. Estelle and Geatano are falling in love while their adult children are desperately trying not to. It's a fun read, but with a darker storyline hiding in the shadows.
