Top Ten Books Which Feature Characters Who _____ (Cook/Bake)
Today’s topic is one of the fun fill-in-the-blank kinds. Anyone who knows me well knows I LOVE to
eat cook or bake. So, what better thing to share some of my favorite books which feature prominent characters who bake or cook – often for a living?!? These characters’ culinary creations have made me hungry at times. But, one of them doesn’t exactly cook well…. let’s just say I won’t be caught eating at Glynna’s table (from Fired Up)
In no particular order, here goes:
1. The Wishing Season by Denise Hunter
Quaint small house-turned-fine-restaurant/foster transition home with a sweet romance
2. A Table by the Window by Hillary Manton Lodge
So many beautiful dishes – and actual RECIPES in the book! My favorite so far that I’ve tried is the French apple cake from the book.
3. When I Fall In Love by Susan May Warren
A cooking competition in Hawaii. Enough said.
4. Fired Up by Mary Connealy
This one is rather comical…. Glynna is not a very good cook. But she does have some people who help her remedy the situation 🙂
5. Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay
Two opposite sisters, brought together, in some ways, by food.
6. Indivisible by Kristen Heitzmann
It’s been a while since I read this one – I remember character Tia Manning worked at a bakery. I think some of her muffin combinations sounded delicious!
7. While Love Stirs by Lorna Seilstad
Another light and fun read, with the main character stirring up trouble!
8. A Beauty So Rare by Tamera Alexander
9.-11. “The Michelli Family Series” by Kristen Heitzmann
Romantic suspense with an Italian family who loves to cook.
How about you? Do you like to read books that feature a main character who cooks or bakes? Have you read any of these?
