Celebrity chef Maxwell Cavanaugh is known for many things: his multiple Michelin stars, his top-rated Culinary Channel show To the Max, and most of all his horrible temper. Hadley Beckett, host of the Culinary Channel’s other top-rated show, At Home with Hadley, is beloved for her Southern charm and for making her viewers feel like family.
When Max experiences a very public temper tantrum, he’s sent packing to get his life in order. When he returns, career in shambles, his only chance to get back on TV and in the public’s good graces is to work alongside Hadley.
As these polar-opposite celeb chefs begin to peel away the layers of public persona and reputation, they will not only discover the key ingredients for getting along, but also learn the secret recipe for unexpected forgiveness . . . and maybe even love. In the meantime, hide the knives.
Fan-favorite Bethany Turner serves up a heaping helping of humor and romance with this thoroughly modern story centered on cooking, enemies, and second chances.
Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish by Bethany Turner is a hilarious yet sweet romantic comedy. I loved every page! The main protagonists were so likable. I enjoyed following their journey as they grew in their careers and in their personal lives, too. The bubbling intensity from these two top chefs was fun. A handsome well-known multiple Michelin Star chef goes up against a sweet sassy southern chef with a few Michelin Stars under her belt. Both have different personalities and styles of cooking. It was a day and night difference. Next Dish was a refreshing read with humor, forgiveness, and a bit of romance. I wasn’t sure what was going to be the outcome. However, I was excited and beyond pleased with the outcome. Overall, this new release was the perfect summer read!
