It seems like a while since I’ve done one of these, doesn’t it? That’s why I’m so excited to share with you the title and the back cover copy for my newest book, The Saturday Night Supper Club, releasing from Tyndale House Publishers in February 2018.
This isn’t the cover (stay tuned for that reveal!) but it definitely captures the feel of the book beautifully. Here’s what the story is about:
Denver chef Rachel Bishop has accomplished everything she’s dreamed and some things she never dared hope, like winning a James Beard award and heading up her own fine-dining restaurant. But when a targeted smear campaign causes her to be pushed out of the business by her partners, she vows to do whatever it takes to get her life back … even if that means joining forces with the man who inadvertently set the disaster in motion.
Essayist Alex Kanin never imagined his pointed editorial would go viral. Ironically, his attempt to highlight the pitfalls of online criticism has the opposite effect: it revives his own flagging career by destroying that of a perfect stranger. Plagued by guilt-fueled writer’s block, Alex vows to do whatever he can to repair the damage. He just doesn’t expect his interest in the beautiful chef to turn personal.
Alex agrees to help rebuild Rachel’s tarnished image by offering his connections and his home to host an exclusive pop-up dinner party targeted to Denver’s most influential citizens: the Saturday Night Supper Club. As they work together to make the project a success, Rachel begins to realize Alex is not the unfeeling opportunist she once thought he was, and that perhaps there’s life–and love–outside the pressure-cooker of her chosen career. But can she give up her lifelong goals without losing her identity as well?
The Saturday Night Supper Club is the first book in a new series, set in my hometown of Denver, Colorado and filled with plenty of delicious food and romance… in my opinion, the very best combination. Stay tuned for the cover reveal, coming in a week or two. I can’t wait to share this story with you!
