Tacos for Two by Betsy St. Amant

I cannot believe it has taken me this long to read a St. Amant book, but here I am. I’ve heard good things.

MY REVIEW

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good classic ROM COM. But I love an updated one with a nod to the classics even better! Texting, yes! Smart and zinging texting, yes please!

Betsy St. Amant Haddox provided a solid bit of entertainment that successfully had me rooting for Rory and  Jude. Mexican food and food trucks, and then add a contest and you have a winning recipe. Spiced with a dash or two of romance mixed in with situation comedy and you have the perfect blend of “my kind of book.”

Have some nachos or tacos nearby for this one. A sensory delight as well as a heartwarming story with the more than perfect ending. And let me just say, the animosity between Rory and his family was brilliantly done and brought to a satisfying conclusion.

Such a clever story where the online personas and the real life ones must reconcile.

A two thumbs up!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Rory Perez, a food truck owner who can’t cook, is struggling to keep the business she inherited from her aunt out of the red–and an upcoming contest during Modest’s annual food truck festival seems the best way to do it. The prize money could finally give her a solid financial footing and keep her cousin with special needs paid up at her beloved assisted living home. Then maybe Rory will have enough time to meet the man she’s been talking to via an anonymous online dating site.

Jude Strong is tired of being a puppet at his manipulative father’s law firm, and the food truck festival seems like the perfect opportunity to dive into his passion for cooking and finally call his life his own. But if he loses the contest, he’s back at the law firm for good. Failure is not an option.

Complications arise when Rory’s chef gets mono and she realizes she has to cook after all. Then Jude discovers that his stiffest competition is the same woman he’s been falling for online the past month.

Will these unlikely chefs sacrifice it all for the sake of love? Or will there only ever be tacos for one?
