The Lost Recipe for Happiness
by Barbara O’Neal
The Lost Recipe for Happiness is about Elena Alvarez, who was the sole survivor of a car accident that left her badly scarred twenty years earlier. Attempting to escape the accident she falls in love with cooking. Elena drifted to culinary school in Europe and eventually ends up at an upscale Vancouver restaurant, where her passion and skills capture the attention of celebrity restaurateur Julian Liswood, who hires her as the executive chef of a new restaurant he is opening in Aspen, Colorado. As she finds her footing in Aspen’s restaurant scene, she, too, begins to find a home.
Of course without noticing it I have yet picked up another book that has recipes in it. I don’t know if it is the new way of writing when you are speaking of a chef, but it was interesting. The book is a very light, fun, mindless read. Nothing to hard here. Girl breaks up with current man, relocates to new city for a fresh start, meets new man, not sure if she should get involved with new man, ends up getting involved with new man and they begin new relationship. Pretty much sums up the story line, but the characters made it much better then it sounds.
