Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish, by Bethany Turner

Chef Hadley Beckett’s cooking show is all sweet Southern charm. Chef Max Cavanagh’s show, To the Max, perpetuates his hot-tempered, bad-boy reputation. When they’re the two finalists on a cooking competition show?

Hide the knives.

Weeks after his end-of-competition meltdown, Max gets out of rehab / anger management to find his popularity is shot. To get back on the air, he’s forced to work alongside Hadley, who never wants to see him again.

I thoroughly enjoyed this hilarious story. Between the on-camera personas, the backstage maneuvering, and the minefield of personal feelings and career aspirations–not to mention the droolworthy dishes the chefs keep whipping up–author Bethany Turner kept me laughing and turning pages.

The book is available from Amazon and other retailers. I hope I’ve whetted your appetite for this Great Weekend Read!

Thanks for reading,
