PROS: It's sweet and simple and an enjoyable enough way to pass a couple of hours. You could do better, certainly ... but you could also do a lot worse. Nothing sparkles enough to really catch your eye. It's the book equivalent of easy listening music.
CONS: Sean comes off as a complete jerk (not in a good way) at the start, Darby's fixation on sneaking behind her dad's back to get things done at the Dory can grate a little, and I would have preferred Will and Mandy to wrap up in some obvious, plot-twisty way (though I guess they might make a return appearance in the subsequent novels in this series). Otherwise I've no obvious complaints.
RECOMMEND? I hesitate to say yes, because as I mentioned, you could do a lot better. I wouldn't warn anyone away from this book, but plenty of other titles would come to mind before this one if a friend asked for a recommendation.
The book opens in Darby's deli when a mixed up delivery of mushrooms causes a fiery confrontation between the two cooks. Darby is set off by Sean's ridiculous accusation of theft and Sean doesn't realize Darby's anger is aggravated by a previous meeting he doesn't even remember. Both characters are struggling with issues dating back to their respective childhoods.
Their road to romance is twisted by misunderstandings, insecurities and interference by troublemakers on each side. But there are good friends on both sides determined to help.
Drea Stein has written a light-hearted story perfect for reading on a sunny beach or in front of a cozy fire on a rainy day. The characters are well drawn and the dialog is snappy and believable. Even the supporting characters personalities come alive with just a few sentences. Being a New Englander, the setting had deep meaning for me and the author captured that small town essence in her vibrant descriptions of this harbor town.
If you like your romances sweet with a dash of humor and a pinch of eccentricity, you'll love "Dinner for Two." I look forward to the next books in this series.
"I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review."
She was a successful lawyer, practiced for 3 years and quit to run the deli while her father is on vacation. sshe cannot seem to get up the courage to tell her father what she wants to do with her life. Now, she graduated college (4 years) went to law school (3) years and then practiced for 3 years, so that puts her at about 30. So 30 years and she still can't live her own life. Sad.
I quit reading. I sort of got tired of the characters and for me there was not enough excitement to keep from getting bored. I just couldn't seem to relate to the characters. I liked him but it seemed as tho he just wanted to get her in bed, not have a HEA. She was so attracted to him that she couldn't speak at times! Felt like she stuck her finger in a light socket every time he came around but didn't want to get too close but then seemed peeved if he didn't respond like an interested suitor. It is probably just me. I'm sure it is a good story. I liked the idea of dueling chefs, just couldn't get in to this one.
I picked this book because it looked like it would be an easy fun read; it was. It is set in a small coastal town. The main characters are reinventing themselves and have a history even if he does not remember.
I liked the book. It is a nice diversion from your day. There are grammatical errors, but that seems to be the norm in books these days. This is a good pick if you're looking for a fun read without cursing as long as you're okay with the few sex scenes .
