Tacos for Two


"In St. Amant's pleasing latest a struggling small-town Texas chef must battle to save her business and find love . . . St. Amant's quaint tale will appeal to fans of Karen Kingsbury."--Publishers Weekly


Rory Perez, a food truck owner who can't cook, is struggling to keep the business she inherited from her aunt out of the red--and an upcoming contest during Modest's annual food truck festival seems the best way to do it. The prize money could finally give her a solid financial footing and keep her cousin with special needs paid up at her beloved assisted living home. Then maybe Rory will have enough time to meet the man she's been talking to via an anonymous online dating site.

Jude Strong is tired of being a puppet at his manipulative father's law firm, and the food truck festival seems like the perfect opportunity to dive into his passion for cooking and finally call his life his own. But if he loses the contest, he's back at the law firm for good. Failure is not an option.

Complications arise when Rory's chef gets mono and she realizes she has to cook after all. Then Jude discovers that his stiffest competition is the same woman he's been falling for online the past month.

Will these unlikely chefs sacrifice it all for the sake of love? Or will there only ever be tacos for one?

My Review:

4.5 Stars:
Tacos Tacos Tacos! Enemies to lovers with a food truck battle. It's a mash-up between foot network and lifetime romcom and I am here for it. I'm a lover of anything romance with a side of food. I will read it all day every day and this is deff itch that needs a perfect fall get into the mood for a Thanksgiving book. Food, romance, family drama, this is a quick light read that the pages will fly by and you'll laugh at the times as well. This is the second storyline that is a more modern retelling of You got Mail that has come out and I have to say the food in this one takes the cake for me. Can we please have this movie on Netflix? I will be putting this book on my comfort reads for when things get dark and lonely this winter and I will be getting a physical copy of this one. This is just the pick me up I needed. 4.5 Stars.


Thank you to NetGalley and Revell for a copy of Tacos for two in exchange for my honest review.
