While the premise might sound like a cookie-cutter Hallmark movie style book, Comfort Foods is an intriguing dive into the lives of Lacy, a woman who finds herself back in her hometown, and Rudy, a chef and single dad. Their paths cross in such an interesting way as Lacy suddenly finds herself thrust back into Comfort, Texas after a fall from the top as a social media darling. Lacy teams up with her sister to throw a fun food festival. Rudy is tapped to help with the festival and sparks fly!
The characters are so well-written and engaging! I felt right at home in Comfort, Texas and so will any reader who enjoys cozy stories set in small towns! From the beginning, the charm of small town Texas is on display and can you not fall in love with the setting! The book is around 360 pages and takes you on an adventure that you won’t forget! Aside from the riveting storytelling, my favorite part of this book is that every character has an integral part to play in the story! Not one character is wasted and I can’t pick the one loved the most because they are all amazing!
While the narrative has a relatively light-hearted tone across the board, there are dramatic moments that can hit close to home. Family struggles, crime, exes, and more pop up to make the story follow a rocky path. I felt so at home in the writing and I read chapter after chapter. Soon, I couldn’t stop reading! This book really has that ‘couldn’t put it down’ factor! My husband is an amateur chef and I kept reading him passages with vivid descriptions of culinary flair! A unique feature of this title is the recipes in the back of the book! Whip up a Steak Diane for your loved ones!
This would be a great beach read, or a great book to read in the park on a warm day. This is perfect for fans of small town romance with a hint of real world drama! I would recommend this as a book club read or for fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Pam Jenoff! Overall, this is a lovely and rich story with a lot of heart and a heaping helping of Texas spirit!
