    Hot Chef at your fingertips!

    Kate Meader's debut novel of her Hot in the Kitchen series, full of humour and sparkling wit, introduces us to the world of the DeLuca and Kilroy families. Lili DeLuca, daughter of an Italian restauranteur helps run her father's kitchen while caring for her mother recovering from a cancer diagnosis and trying to fulfill her own dreams of becoming a respected photographer. Jack Kilroy is a self made top chef from the school of hard knocks, having propelled himself from a broken family home to the pinnacle of success. When the two meet, sparks -and frying pans- fly. The relationship of the main characters to food is a central theme of the story. Jack's passion (something he fears losing sight of as the business of building an empire begins to overwhelm him) is for creating dishes to tempt the palate and is not above using this to lure Lili in. Lili has accepted her above average size and though twinges of the emotional aftereffects of the bullying she endured as a child remain, it doesn't stop her from appreciating Jack's sensual efforts. I particularly enjoyed the character revelations as the male and female points of view were explored. The relationship of Jack and Lili to their respective families, and to each other, as well as the gradual exposure of more facets of their personalities throughout the course of the book made for a novel with a depth of emotion that drew me in as a reader. Throw in laugh out loud moments and steamy love scenes and you have exactly what I hope for in a well crafted romantic story. Several secondary characters were introduced who will feature in later books of the series (in particular Lili's sister Cara, and Jack's sister Jules) leaving me satisfied that Kate is well on her way to developing a loyal and true fan base. 4 1/2 well deserved stars!
