The Love Goddess' Cooking School

The Love Goddess' Cooking school is a wonderful book. I enjoyed the plot and characters. Holly was a really good relatable character and I liked her strength and her personality. It was interesting to see her take over her grandmother's pasta shop and the cooking class. Her grandmother's journal was a good touch with learning about her and being able to have something to help her ease her grief. Everyone in the cooking class was an interesting character in their own right. I also enjoyed Liam he was interesting and great with taking care of Mia his daughter.

I liked the development of Holly and Liam's relationship and how believable it was. Plus the tenderness, romance and the chemistry worked. I got a great feeling reading this book. And if you like foods then the recipes will have you getting hungry.

Camilla’s Cucinotta: Italian Cooking Classes. Fresh take-home pastas & sauces dailyBenvenuti! (Welcome!)
Holly Maguire’s grandmother Camilla was the Love Goddess of Blue Crab Island, Maine—a Milanese fortune-teller who could predict the right man for you, and whose Italian cooking was rumored to save marriages. Holly has been waiting years for her unlikely fortune: her true love will like sa cordula, an unappetizing old-world delicacy. But Holly can’t make a decent marinara sauce, let alone sa cordula. Maybe that’s why the man she hopes to marry breaks her heart. So when Holly inherits Camilla’s Cucinotta, she’s determined to forget about fortunes and love and become an Italian cooking teacher worthy of her grandmother’s legacy.

But Holly’s four students are seeking much more than how to make Camilla’s chicken alla Milanese. Simon, a single father, hopes to cook his way back into his daughter’s heart. Juliet, Holly’s childhood friend, hides a painful secret. Tamara, a serial dater, can’t find the love she longs for. And twelve-year-old Mia thinks learning to cook will stop her dad, Liam, from marrying his phony lasagna-queen girlfriend. As the class gathers each week, adding Camilla’s essential ingredients of wishes and memories in every pot and pan, unexpected friendships and romances are formed—and tested. Especially when Holly falls hard for Liam . . . and learns a thing or two about finding her own recipe for happiness.
