Penny Jackson is a chef and a very good one. Her ex-husband Cal Buchanan wants to hire her to work in one of his families restaurants. Penny and Cal divorced because he told her that he didn't want children and she did. Cal's grandmother always thought Penny was beneath Cal socially and was not happy when Cal hired her. There were many secrets in Cal's family and also in their marriage. Penny did not want Cal to know she was pregnant when he hired her. She later learns that Cal has a daughter she knew nothing about. Just as they were finding their way back to each other, secrets are revealed that can tear them apart.
I'm a big fan of Susan Mallery and she did not disappoint me with this book. A look into the inner workings of restaurant kitchen and the business itself. Both Penny and Cal have baggage both from before their marriage and in the interim. All Cal's siblings are introduced in the book and each has their own story. There is romance and betrayal and then happily ever after. Excellent book for romance lovers.
