The Coincidence of Coconut CakeBook - 2015
"In downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Chef Lou Johnson works tirelessly to build her beloved yet struggling restaurant, Luella's, into a success. She cheerfully balances business, friends, and fiance...until fate intervenes. She's just baked her fiance a rich, delectable coconut cake, but when she drops by his apartment with the birthday surprise, she discovers him in the buff--with an intern. Sardonic British transplant Al writes pseudonymous, scathing restaurant reviews for the local paper. When a tip sends him to Luella's, little does he know he's arrived on the worst day of the chef's life. The review practically writes itself: underdone fish, scorched sauce, distracted service--unleashes his worst. The day that Al's review runs, he meets Lou drowning her sorrows at a pub, and the two strike up a conversation. Accepting the Englishman's challenge to prove there's more to the Milwaukee food scene than cheese and beer, Lou introduces her friend to the city's best. Its only a matter of time before they fall in love...but when the truth comes out, will it be possible to overlook the past and savor a future together?"-- Back cover.
