Dining with Joy by Rachel Hauck Book Review

Dining With Joy by Rachel Hauck

From the Publisher:

Joy Ballard has a secret: she's a cooking show host who can't really cook.
When her South Carolina-based cooking show, Dining With Joy, is picked up by a major network, Joy Ballard's world heats up like a lowcountry boil.
Joy needs help. Then she meets chef Luke Davis who moved to Beaufort after losing his Manhattan restaurant. A cook at the Frogmore Cafe, he’s paying debts and longing to regain his reputation in the elite foodie world.
Luke and Joy mix like oil and water…until Joy is exposed on national television. With her career and his reputation both under fire, they’ll have to work together to fix the mess. Is it possible that they can learn to feast on God’s love and dine with joy?
My Review:
This has been a delightful read!  I enjoyed every minute of it.  The entire time I was reading, the author made me feel like I was a fly on the wall learning secrets about the characters. 
I will tell you not to read this book when you are hungry.  The references made my stomach growl with jealous pains.  The author was even gracious to put a few recipes in the back of the book that were mentioned in the book.  YUM!  I can't wait to try the banana bread.
Overall, this book was entertaining and it was a blessing to see how the story unfolded.  I appreciated the purity that was presented in the book, as well.
 Blessings to you!  You are loved!
