From the award-winning author of Comfort Plans and Comfort Songs comes a story of two rising stars blitzed by social media. Lacy Cavanaugh and single-dad Rudy Delgardo live a hundred miles apart but meet in the worst possible way. Working at a weekly paper and creating social media for area businesses helps Lacy connect with locals who open her mind to a perspective beyond Instagram. In launching a food-and-wine festival to support Comfort’s new event center, she discovers surprising skills bubbling over, much like the food she’s attempting to cook.
Rudy, on the brink of his restaurant’s takeover, struggles to improve time management so he can create a better relationship with his daughter. Distracted by Lacy and her invitation to the festival, he’s tempted by her beauty, wit, and courage, but as a chef, he rarely gets to enjoy life outside the kitchen. Enemies, illness, and exes add unwelcome spice to the dish they’re concocting—one that will teeter with misunderstanding until the very end.
Will Lacy and Rudy embrace their second chances and discover the perfect seasonings of family, resilience, and grace to create a handwritten recipe of love that will stand the test of time?
Comfort Foods by Kimberly Fish is the small-town contemporary romance that I love. These characters, Lacy and Rudy have a hard time accepting things and so they struggle. I enjoy following them as they struggled along the way. With every page, the story got better and better. Lacy is strong willed and determined to make it. She is doing everything she can to get on the top. Then there is Rudy. A single father and struggling to be the best he can be as a chef. Their flaws only made them more human. I laughed and cried with these characters. They made this book worth every word. Kimberly Fish is a new writer to me. I have never read any of her books prior to this one. I am so happy that I read this book! It was amazing.
