After graduating from Fannie Farmer's School of Cookery in 1910, Charlotte Gregory is ready to stir things up. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to travel, lecture, and give cooking demonstrations on the very latest kitchen revolution--the gas stove--and certainly doesn't mind that the gas company has hired the handsome Lewis Mathis to perform at her lectures. Lewis encourages her work, especially her crusade to introduce fresh, appetizing, nutritious food to those convalescing in hospitals. But young hospital superintendent Dr. Joel Brooks is not convinced any changes should be made--especially by this outspoken young woman.

When Charlotte and Joel are coerced into planning a fund-raising gala for the hospital, will this combustible pair explode?

Fan favorite Lorna Seilstad is back with a breezy, lighthearted love triangle that will keep readers guessing. Attention to historic detail adorns the timeless story of a young woman looking for true love and making her way in a rapidly changing world.

My take on this book:
An easy summertime historical read that flows along smoothly, but does throw in a few bumps and twists, especially with the relationship that develops between Charlotte and Joel, to keep the plot interesting. The Year is 1910 and Charlotte Gregory has just graduated from cooking school and wants to embark on her career, thing is putting her  culinary skills to work isn't easy because it is a man's world and it isn't very welcoming to females! 

I loved the character of Charlotte, she knew what she wanted and wasn't afraid to speak her mind! Her last relationship wasn't great so she isn't looking for love, but when she meets Joel, I just knew that was where the couple was headed.  I loved the way the pair often butted heads! While this book is the second in the Gregory Sisters series the author provides enough background information that it can be read as a stand alone. Anyone who enjoys a good clean historical romantic read will probably enjoy this one, I know I did!
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
