"A mouth-watering, heart-warming, toe-curling holiday romance!" --Amanda Usen, author of Luscious
Kincaid (Outside the Lines) shares a Christmas-themed preview of the setting for her new series, a snowy Blue Ridge town called Pine Mountain, with Kauffman and Angell in a triad of loosely linked foodie novellas. Kaufman s goofy but adorable Where There s Smoke pairs sweet, klutzy Clara Parker, who nearly burns down her house trying to bake, with her old best friend, fireman Will Mason. In Angell s The Gingerbread Man, a witty frame story is out of sync with the core tale of lonely snowbound people creating a semblance of familial holiday comfort. Kincaid s Sugar and Spice sweetly and competently executes a classic cooking romance story of two chefs striking sparks as they go head to head in a big competition, and the bakery that Pete Mancuso and Lily Callahan set up together with the prize money is sure to be a meeting place for new couples as the series launches.
