“A terrific read from a talented author. Made me hungry more than once. I can’t wait to read what comes next.”
—Francine Rivers, New York Times bestselling author of The Masterpiece

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?

The Saturday Night Supper Club is mesmerizing from start to finish! Carla Laureano has written an exquisite novel that is truly captivating! These are bold statements but I can attest they are true statements. This is one of those rare books that grabs your heart at the beginning and will not let it go until the last sentence.

The plot is complex as it delves into the lives of Chef Rachel Bishop and writer Alex Kanin. Their lives begin an inextricable link when Kanin writes a column in the WSJ that makes a stand against Bishop’s recent treatment by a notorious Food Critic. The power of the pen causes devastating consequences and Kanin feels compelled to do whatever he needs to do to correct this wrong. Out of the ashes of her former brilliant career, the Saturday Night Supper Club is created to provide opportunities for showcasing Rachel’s talent.

Laureano’s flawless character descriptions and continued character development have you feeling as though you know each of them intimately and cause you to desire to spend more time with them. Her imagery in describing the details of the cooking scenes will have you helping choose the fresh local vegetables, seeing the placement on the plates, tasting every morsel as she describes it in luscious details and leaves you desperately wanting to sign up as a participant in the next Saturday Night Supper Club!

This book has it all - family dynamics, career upheaval, treasured friends (that are like family), life choices, much introspection (that makes the reader think as well), learning that honesty about who you are is invaluable to where you are going, fabulous food scenes, a beautiful love story waiting to work itself out and an understanding of God’s providence without being overly religious.

I was provided an ARC by the Publisher. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and are without influence.

This is a Christian romance and pretty religious

Wish I’d known this book was so religious. I had to put it down half through because the references to God were becoming so frequent. And yes, the heroine and her girlfriends actually had a conversation where they deemed the hero was worth pursuing because he was hot, nice and Christian. I wish the publisher had been clear about this in the book blurb because then I wouldn’t have wasted $9 on a book that wasn’t for me. (I would have had no problem with characters that had a strong faith, but to say a particular religion makes a character worthwhile is not my cup of tea). This book should be categorized as a Christian romance.
