Author Bio

Kaye Dacus is a graduate of Seton Hill University’s Master of Arts in Writing Popular Fiction program. She is an active member and former vice president of American Christian Fiction Writers and current president of Middle Tennessee Christian Writers. Her Stand-In Groom was a Christy Award finalist in 2010.


Meredith Guidry, the main character in Kaye Dacus’ novel Menu for Romance, has been in love for eight years. Dacus explores Meredith’s longing to be married, after she has had little luck in love for the first thirty-four years of her life.

When Meredith decides that she has waited long enough for Major O’Hara to return her feelings, she goes on a few casual dates with another man, not knowing that Major does love her. He has been hesitant to pursue a relationship with Meredith because he is afraid to tell her about his schizophrenic mother.

Although Meredith’s situation is one that many single women can relate to, Dacus misses the opportunity to teach through Meredith’s circumstances. Rather than waiting on God’s timing and seeking her fulfillment in Christ alone, Meredith attempts to “awaken love before its time” (Song of Songs 8:4) by trying to feel a romantic attraction for the man who is pursuing her.

Imaginative descriptions and witty dialogue fill this novel. The characters are believable and likable. The experiences seem authentic, from meetings with Meredith’s family and best friends to her attempts at romantic relationships.

This book is well-written and, though predictable at times, is enjoyable within its genre. Young women in a similar stage of life would likely empathize with the situations in which Meredith finds herself. – Alyssa Ruthanna Guebert,

    Meredith Guidry is a professional events planner for her parent's company, and with her life a constant whirlwind, she's just never had a chance to settle down. Executive chef Major Daniel Xavier Kirby O'Hara is tied down to his family situation, and doesn't want to saddle a woman down with his life. Meridith and Major have worked together closely for eight years, and neither has been able to admit their attraction to one another. Will time be on their side when they finally discover the truth - and each other? Or is Major too late in his attempt to woo Meridith back into his arms?

    Book two in the Brides of Bonneterre was as good as a big bowl of gumbo on a cold winter day. Dacus has written a novel that is funny, entertaining, and humorous that makes it hard to put down. She paints word pictures of the busyness of the kitchen during preparation for events, of Meridith's workload as she juggles coordinating events, and the sometimes crushing pressure of having a big family that smothers and teases you at every turn. I'm not sure how accurate a depiction this is of a typical family in Louisiana, but I enjoyed the book for what it was - a romance that kept my interest with snippets of Godly wisdom to encourage character growth. A good read and one I will recommend.
