3 stars! Told in alternating points of view, this tale of a string of texts over time to a deceased fiancé that continually land with the next person to get assigned the phone number is part romance, part mystery.
3 stars! This was a quick read, written in a style that would lend itself well to a movie. The relationship was sweet, and there were several funny moments.
3 stars! Set in Canada and the US, with plenty of sportsball and inside baseball to captivate readers who swoon over passionate pro-athletes, and culinary and wine details that are enticing to foodies.
3 stars! I really love the premise of star-crossed, meant to be (dare I say bershert?) lovers, or that people have been in each other’s lives all along.
5 stars! Highly recommended for foodies, fans of Top Chef, Christina Lauren fans, and romance readers who like the journey more than the destination (the kisses are few but steamy; sex is implied, but left off the page – the seduction and gory details are all in the food, and that’s just fine).
4 stars! I love a good cooking competition romance, and this one is unique in several ways, most notably, featuring an openly non-binary character.
5 stars! This really was one of the best books I read in 2020 – funny, sexy, real people I cared about.
