You Seriously Need To Read This Book.
Now, firstly, I'm a SUCKER for a good romance story, I think we all are, in one way or another.
Read the story now
However in my many years, and hundreds of romance books, I have NEVER seen a novel regarding cooking. That alone took ahold of my attention and held it strong until the end of the final chapter. I read this entire thing in one sitting, and make no mistake, it isn't a smaller novel or short story by any means--it was just that damn good.
I usually make it a habit to point out the style of writing, because I can usually find something entirely unique with every different author, but to be honest you didn't change or offer anything entirely brand new, no--you took something simplistic and made it wonderfully complex, and mixed it with a well thought-out and even more entertaining story, offering the readers a fresh and amusing story, with lovable and relatable characters. That's some AMAZING work from you, Ms. McKeown
Thirdly, I also like to remind that there is always room to improve. While grammar is something we all struggle with, you seem to have a decent grasp on editing your works--or not making the mistake in the first place, like a champion--though there is obviously always things you can work on. Adapting a unique style, finding your niche--if you haven't already--furthering your vocabulary and diction, finding new and better ways to set a scene. Not that you've done any of these wrong, just a reminder that we can always find something to better ourselves at, and some gentle encouragement to see you grow into an even BETTER author, because the community is selfish like that, wanting to see you grow and better yourself :D <3
Thank you for the wonderful, WONDERFUL read. To many more stories, and no writer's block!
