When Penelope Monroe loses her dream job as a food critic, she launches a weekly Food Blog - The Fifty Two Week Chronicles - promising to post restaurant reviews to keep fans entertained. Her best friend begs her to work as a restaurant consultant for a client hired by his PR Firm, and Penelope agrees, unaware of who the client is.
Jonathan Knight is still steaming from the poor review received from a renowned food critic that destroyed the image and reputation of his 5 star-rated restaurant. He seeks help from a restaurant consultant, not knowing the feisty (and extremely attractive) woman hired to help rebuild his reputation is the same woman who destroyed it.
Penelope and Jonathan quickly develop a spicy connection that is sure to take them on a very heated culinary dash toward success and a chance at love. But will Penelope be able to keep her true identity hidden from Jonathan?
Set in New York, The Fifty-Two Week Chronicles is the first book in the Sexy Chick Lit / Romantic Comedy series of novels - Delectables in the City; a tasteful mix of food and passion in every city.
I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I enjoyed every page of this book. I am a sucker for a foodie/chick-lit combination story and this delivered for me in a big way for such a short book. It’s Monday , Penelope just loses her job and boyfriend/boss and the adventure of Penelope reinventing her life and career starts right at the beginning of the work week! This brings us to Jonathan , a restaurant owner that needs help with his failing restaurant. In walks Penelope to help him rebuild his reputation in the food world. The heat between these two does burn up the pages and Jonathan is damn hot! There is a nice story here of mistaken (on purpose) identity and finding out who you really are through tough times. This book is a fun lighthearted read set in NYC, which I loved. It was not a long book at all but it does pack quite a punch for such a short book. I had become attached to Penelope and Jonathan and I did hate to see this one end.
If you are looking for a lighthearted smexy fun book then this is it. I truly enjoyed this story and the characters and hated for it to end. The good news is it’s a series!
