The Saturday Night Supper Club By Carla Laureano
Denver chef Rachel Bishop has accomplished everything she’s dreamed and some things she never dared hope, like winning a James Beard Award and heading up her own fine-dining restaurant. But when a targeted smear campaign causes her to be pushed out of the business by her partners, she vows to do whatever it takes to get her life back . . . even if that means joining forces with the man who inadvertently set the disaster in motion.
Essayist Alex Kanin never imagined his pointed editorial would go viral. Ironically, his attempt to highlight the pitfalls of online criticism has the opposite effect: it revives his own flagging career by destroying that of a perfect stranger. Plagued by guilt-fueled writer’s block, Alex vows to do whatever he can to repair the damage. He just doesn’t expect his interest in the beautiful chef to turn personal.
Alex agrees to help rebuild Rachel’s tarnished image by offering his connections and his home to host an exclusive pop-up dinner party targeted to Denver’s most influential citizens: the Saturday Night Supper Club. As they work together to make the project a success, Rachel begins to realize Alex is not the unfeeling opportunist she once thought he was, and that perhaps there’s life―and love―outside the pressure-cooker of her chosen career. But can she give up her lifelong goals without losing her identity as well?

Everyone who knows me knows that I am a foodie, I will try anything once, my first bite of solid food was at One Nation in Columbus Ohio and it was Lobster tail.
So when I saw this book I had to read it. Well when I got it I devoured it like a box of Godiva Chocolate in one sitting. I did not stop until I read the very last page.
Laureano, did such a great job with the research, I have to wonder if she just might be a chef herself. And she added a sweet romance to the mix as well.
I loved everything about this book. 5 stars two times. I can't wait for the next book in this series Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe' coming out in 2019.
