Executive chef Major O'Hara wishes he could admit his feelings for and share his life with Meredith, but he knows he could never saddle the woman he loves with a family situation like his.
Cater to your craving for fabulous fictional fare with Menu for Romance, where a party planner finds herself torn between the contractor and the cook. After eight years of unrequited love, Meredith Guidry makes a New Year's resolution to find someone new and end her single status before the year's over. And when she meets a handsome contractor on New Year's Day, it seems like her prayers have been answered. Executive Chef Major O'Hara has forsworn relationships, knowing he could never saddle the woman he loves with a family situation like his. But when it seems he's about to lose Meredith Guidry to another man, he realizes he must concoct a menu for romance to win her back.
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 Merediths 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 OHara 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 Merediths situation is one that many single women can relate to, Dacus misses the opportunity to teach through Merediths circumstances. Rather than waiting on Gods 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 Merediths 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, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
