Review: Recipe for Redemption by Anna J. Stewart

Butterfly Harbor #2

From the frying pan…

Abby Manning has to take home first prize in an amateur cooking competition to save her town’s landmark inn—and longtime home for her ailing grandmother. Too bad the Butterfly Harbor innkeeper is a complete disaster in the kitchen. Undeterred, Abby asks her latest guest to teach her the basics.

A family tragedy and ensuing scandal derailed Jason Corwin’s high-profile career. But is the gifted celebrity chef going to let one mistake define the rest of his life? Add in a generous helping of mutual attraction and another burgeoning scandal, and it could be a recipe for star-crossed romance…or disaster, especially if a win for Abby costs Jason his professional future.

My Thoughts

Wow! I'm trying to wrap my head around this story while writing this. It's that good. I'm in love with this book. One in my must reread list. The thrill and the charm of this book left me breathless after reading this. I've read the first book in the series, the Bad Boy of Butterfly Harbor and this second book is even better than the first one. 
Well it's probably due to the hero. I've always loved a story centered in food especially chef. There is just something unique and charming about cooking together.
The author did a great job with the personality of the character.
At first I was really annoyed with Jason Corwin, he was truly a jerk to Abby, but I understood his past. Abby is one of kind girl. Her motivation and compassionate nature made it easy to fall in love with her. I laughed at some of her action.
My favorite part is probably when they both ventured to a quiet and beautiful place.
The people in town amazed me too. No one really judged Jason and it astounds me that people are so kind. They gave him a chance to prove his worth and that's a good life lesson.

The charm of the small town with the butterfly mascot is making the story totally heartwarming. I laughed and almost cried while reading the book.

Amazing book Anna!
Truly recommended and a must read!

I received an ARC of this book in exchange of an honest review.

About the Author

A geek at heart, national bestselling author Anna J Stewart writes "refreshingly unique, quietly humorous, and profoundly moving romance" (RT Book Reviews) including The Tremayne Family Romances, The Butterfly Harbor series (for Harlequin Heartwarming), and the upcoming HONOR BOUND trilogy for Harlequin Romantic Suspense.

NYTimes bestselling author Brenda Novak says "The talented Anna J Stewart delivers every time!" Anna lives in Northern California where she deals with a serious Supernatural & Sherlock addiction, surrounds herself with friends and family and tolerates an overly affectionate cat named Snickers (or perhaps it's Snickers who tolerates her).
