  • Special story with found family

    Family Recipe sounded like a special story and I’ve enjoyed a couple books from both authors so I jumped right in after reading the blurb. The main characters and their stories were compelling and I loved how the entire book reflected the steadying force love and a supportive family can provide, especially since Justin and his siblings experienced the highs and lows families can offer. The start of Family Recipe hooked me right away- detailing two men faced with new, tenuous futures. Justin’s character and experiences were especially well written. His fears, anxieties, and uncertainty were palpable and had me pulling for his happily-ever-after. I also liked Del, his steady personality came through as clearly as his nerves regarding what was next for him. I liked how the cooking element wove throughout the book and brought as well, giving it a comforting feel. Where I fumbled a bit was the start of the relationship. It felt very abrupt, like an awkward insta-love setup. Initially, it made sense and I assumed it was due to Justin’s situation and age and expected the authors would draw it out, establishing a balanced connection and chemistry as palpable as those initial moments with Justin, but it never really happened. Admittedly there were a lot of details to cover and a myriad of conflicts in Family Recipe, so I suspect the relationship simply was rushed a bit to get to the heart of the story- which was beautiful. That said, the transition of Del and Justin as strangers to lovers felt clunky compared to the rest of the plot development and had me nervous about how it would all end up. Happily, all the resolutions, including the progression of Justin and Del’s relationship felt complete and I really enjoyed the book as a whole. I especially loved the epilogue and how it brought the family’s story full circle. If you like romances involving found family, children, or main characters with an age gap and can weather a bit of insta-love, I’d definitely recommend Family Recipe. *eARC received via author distribution.

  • Family Recipe

    I have never cried as much as I did reading this book. It is so beautifully written with so much sensitivity that it took my breath away.
