Product Description

"Chef" Joy Ballard longs for a simpler life. But when a good-looking outsider arrives and spices things up, life becomes deliciously complicated. Host of a regionally syndicated cooking show, Joy Ballard has a little secret: she can't cook. But when her show is picked up by a major network and given a prime time slot, her world heats up faster than a lowcountry boil.

Enter Luke Redmond: handsome, creative, and jobless after having to declare bankruptcy of his Manhatten restaurant. When her producers ask him to co-host the show, Joy sees Luke as her way out. But Luke sees much more than just a co-host in Joy. Their relationship begins to simmer on and off set. Until Joy's secret is revealed and her reputation is ruined on national television by her rival, Wenda Devine. But could Devine's cruelty be a divine gift? Losing Luke--and her sister--forces Joy to consider where her worth really comes from. Could God be cooking up an even bigger adventure from the mess? And will Joy hang on long enough to find out?

    My first book by Rachel Hauck and I was treated to a sweet, loveable piece of fiction. I usually tend to read historical romance, feeling like contemporary can get a little annoying in it's attempt to be "modern", but this novel I enjoyed. Now, I'm not rushing to add it to my favorites list, but it kept my interest.

    As far as characters go, Joy was fun and easy to connect with, and well, I fell in love with the hero of the story from the beginning.

    In the end, it's something that I'd recommend to you if you're a lover of cute, contemporary romance. If you're not, maybe give it a shot anyways... it might be a good way to pass a rainy day.

    Can you imagine a cooking show host that doesn't know how to COOK? That's Joy Ballard and she does everything she can to keep that a secret. Then she meets Luke Davis—a real chef! And that attraction hits the broiler on camera and off.

    Loved this book and am glad I spent the money on it. It's funny and the way Rachel Hauck writes is like apple pie topped with caramel and chocolate syrup_oh why not add a scoop of ice cream as well.

    I'll be buying her next book as soon as it hits the shelves. There's real value between those covers.

    Coming up next on Channel Z is the Cooking show we all enjoy immensely "Dining with Joy" and here is your host Joy Ballard. For the past seven years , Joy has been the TV Host of Cooking show Dining with Joy after her father Charles who ran it before her passed away and his wish on his death bed was for Joy to take over. This would have been all well and done but Joy doesn't have a cooking bone in her body, no matter how hard she tries -she just can't cook. So as part of her contract , she has a no cook-off policy to protect her secret. But when Joy is set-up and put against her enemy on TV Wenda Divine , in enters Luke Reynolds - a chef from New York . He saves the day and Luke and Joy have some sizzling chemistry and when he is offered the chance to co-host with Joy, she sees this as an opportunity to get out of the cooking show. What she didn't count on is the TV Show being sold to another producer and her attraction to Luke. Can Joy continue the charade of being able to cook to keep Luke or when Luke does find out - will his reaction be - to run the opposite direction as he feels betrayed ? Dining with Joy has it all from dysfunctional family issues to sizzling chemistry and not just in the kitchen to yummy recipes and cooking tips

    In Dining with Joy, readers get to return to the lowcountry in South Carolina. First, I love the cover and the new ones for earlier books. They just make me smile and want to pick them up. Joy Ballard is a character, the kind of gal I'd love to get to know. Too bad she's only a character!

    When her father died, she took over his job as host of a cooking show. She's brilliant at it except for one not so minor detail: the girl can't cook. At. All. The charade is getting tiring and when the producer sells the show without telling the new owner that she can't cook, the deception digs deeper. Enter Luke...a hunk of a hero who can cook. Very. Well. The sparks fly immediately and the two are paired as co-hosts for the show. 

    That would be enough to make the book interesting, but the author doesn't stop there. She adds complicated layers with family, Joy's past with her dad, her inability to see a future apart from the show, an inability to dream. The result was a book that i delighted in reading. Many books I'll read because they're good. Or they might be interesting. Or occasionally engaging. But this one truly delighted me. I slowed down the reading so I wouldn't have to say good-bye. Some of the parts don't end the way I'd like -- but isn't that life? God doesn't promise us a smooth, easy life. Instead, He promises to be there through all the rough patches as well as the delightful times. 

    I loved this book. And for me to say that about a straight romance is rare. This book is a treat you've earned!

    I really enjoyed reading "Dining With Joy" by Rachel Hauck. It's a good book, with a little bit of romance included!

    The main character, Joy, is a TV cooking-show host - who can't cook. [I will admit_at the beginning of the book, I thought it was a little "far-fetched" that someone could be the host of a popular cooking show and not cook_but as you keep reading, it becomes more rational to believe.] Then she meets Luke Redmond, a handsome, caring guy who CAN cook. She thinks he's her "way out" of the cooking part of the show_but it doesn't quite work out that way. By not telling Luke her "secret", she almost loses him. But, of course, love wins out in the end.

    This book was not only an enjoyable romance book, it also touched upon following God's will in making choices for our lives - including totally relying on God and praying to Him when our lives seem topsy-turvy.

    This book was easy-to-read. In fact, I couldn't put it down once I started it. And, yes, I did cry a little while I was reading it_especially towards the end.

    I would definitely read other books written by Rachel Hauck. In my opinion, she's a great author, and as stated earlier, I really enjoyed this book!
