From the Back Cover
Celebrity chef Maxwell Cavanagh is known for many things: his multiple Michelin stars, his top-rated Culinary Channel show, To the Max, and most of all his horrible temper. Hadley Beckett, host of the Culinary Channel's other top-rated show, At Home with Hadley, is beloved for her Southern charm and for making her viewers feel like family.
When Max experiences a very public temper tantrum and is sent packing, his only chance to get back on TV and in the public's good graces is to work alongside Hadley. As these polar-opposite celeb chefs begin to peel away the layers of public persona and reputation, they will not only discover the key ingredients for getting along but also learn the secret recipe for unexpected forgiveness . . . and maybe even love.
In the meantime, hide the knives.

*Picks jaw up off the floor* Wow, I'm speechless in the best way! Fair warning: there will be gushing galore in this review! I loved Hadley Beckett's Next Dish so much that no words I can string together could possibly come close to doing this amazing book justice, but I will try my best!
I loved Hadley! She is my favorite kind of heroine, smart, sassy, spunky, but also kind, caring, generous, and delightfully real! I'm claiming her as my new fictional BFF! Without spoiling anything let me just say that I absolutely loved how Hadley's faith was so evident in the way she treated all those around her and especially Max, such a beautiful reminder of the amazing grace Jesus Christ offers to us all! Hadley I wanna be like you when I grow up! LOL!
And Max, be still my swooning heart, where is my fainting couch when I need it?! I must admit that reformed bad boy isn't generally one of my favorite hero types, but as soon as Max came on the scene, even though he tried his best to keep me from liking him at first, I liked him anyway because I could tell there was more to him than just acting like a jerk, and those feelings promptly turned to love and before I was halfway done I knew without question that he is my favorite hero of Bethany Turner's, and that I had found my newest book boyfriend! Max is definitely one of my favorite heroes of 2020! Why is Max so awesome, and why do I love him so much? Well, you're just gonna have to read the book to find out! ;)
I don't consider myself a foodie, but I do love food and this book gave me an absolutely fascinating glimpse into the life and mind of a professional chef. I felt like I was cooking right alongside Hadley and Max! But make sure you have snacks on hand because reading this book will definitely make you hungry!
Hadley Beckett's Next Dish is a beautiful story of forgiveness and second chances, and a fantabulous romance that will touch your heart and have you grinning and laughing uncontrollably from beginning to end!
In my humble opinion this book is exactly the ray of hope the world needs right now in these scary and uncertain times!
Hadley Beckett's Next Dish is everything I dreamed it would be and so much more!
I absolutely loved every second of this book and it's definitely one of my favorite reads of 2020! Most highly recommended!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. Which did not influence my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own!
Chef Max! Why do I like him so much? He’s moody, self-absorbed, and arrogant......but then my heart melts.....at his honesty, vulnerability, and understanding. (And Beauty and the Beast IS my favorite fairytale.) When we add Chef Hadley Beckett, with her admirable qualities of enthusiasm and openness, topped with her ability to forgive, we’re served a sweet romance with the right amount of heat.
Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish gives readers a peek into the world of cooking shows. The chefs’ confrontations as they competed against each other for the top spot kept me laughing. But the deeper development of their relationship kept me intrigued. Author Bethany Turner is spot-on for what keeps a couple together. In my book, that’s true romance!
I highly recommend pound sign HadBeck by at symbol seebethanywrite!
A couple of my favorite quotes....this one is so me: “Remember, I have the nightlife of a sunflower.”
“I don’t think the key to healing is self-realization at all. I think you’ve got to realize that there are other people out there, and they matter more. And I think you realize that not by embracing nothing, but by embracing something.”

I love a good enemies to friends/lovers read. And, let’s face it, Max and Hadley couldn’t be more poles apart if they tried!
Hadley is all sugar and spice and all things nice. What you see is what you get. She’d be the best kind of bff. Just think of all those yummy sweet treats! Your love handles may not thank you for it though *chuckles*. Admit it – all the best recipes include butter!
But want to know the best thing about Hadley? Well, it’s this Southern girl’s heart and it shows in everything she does.
Then we have Max. Fame is a fickle fiend, is it not? Somewhere along the line, Max’s on-screen celebrity chef persona and reality have become blurred. Will the real Max Cavanaugh please stand up?
His spectacular fall from grace means he has a job and half trying to redeem himself in the eyes of the public. Fans can put you up on a pedestal but can strip you of it just as quickly.
Working together proves to be eventful to say the least! North versus South. Defences are dropped, truths are revealed, and questions are answered. Please note there was some fist waving at certain characters, but don’t worry, I didn’t do a Max *snorts*.
HBND is a light entertaining read (despite the at times heavy subject matter); funny (Hadley’s Meemaw is a hoot!), charming, and at times frustrating (see fist waving above). Ultimately, it left me with a smile on my face. I’ll definitely be picking up a Bethany Turner book again.
Michelin stars mean nothing when it comes to matters of the heart!
