The blurb

She's a single. He's a widower. She wants him. He wants her. She wants to impress. So does he. There's just one catch – she can't cook. To get him, she needs to get past the big fish – his mother. Lucky her, she's got an Ace up her sleeve and all she's got to do is impress this one time. Bad luck, though, her new guy can't cook either, her dog Rambo is on the loose and now they've got to pull off the big lunch at the club. Will it be a match made in heaven? Will they be able to pull off a culinary miracle? Will their combined efforts result in love at first bite? Or is it simply a Recipe for Disaster?

Lisa has a new boyfriend, Adam, a police officer.  Adam comes with an over-protective mother who cannot remember Lisa's name. Well she cannot compare to Adam's late wife Melissa,  who was an excellant cook.

Adam and his mother believe Lisa is a great cook after a misunderstanding. Lisa believes she needs to keep up the charade to compare with Adam's great cooking skills and those of his late wife. Adam doesn't want Lisa to know he cannot cook to her standards.  A recipe for disaster!

Lisa agrees to cater for the Golf club function to impress Adam's mother or is that Adam?   Can she pull it off?  Maybe with the help of best friend, Becky, who seems to be distracted by a rather delicious photographer!

An unusual recipe book with a hot and steamy rom com in between the recipes.
All the recipes are clearly laid out with full instructions. Measurements are in cups, measuring cups can be bought in the shops.
I laughed out loud and had the family thinking I was losing the plot!

4.5 out of 5 for me.  I loved it!
