Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – New Book on the Shelves – Celebrity Corgi Romance Series – Charming the Chef: Sweet Promises – C.A. Phipps

Delighted to welcome USA Today bestselling romance author C.A. Phipps to the Cafe and Bookstore with the fourth book in her Celebrity Corgi Romance Series – Charming the Chef: Sweet Promises, released on August 2nd 2019.

About the book

Culinary student Lyra St. Claire can’t believe her luck when she becomes the face of America’s hottest new cooking show and an overnight sensation. For now, she’s loving the lime light and with her faithful corgi, Cinnamon, by her side she knows she’s on the cusp of achieving everything she’s ever dreamed of.

Kaden Hunter trained side-by-side with Lyra. While they once had a rock-solid friendship, he found himself left behind when she became a household name. Now, rising from the ashes of their one-time friendship, he’s determined to make it big—no golden ticket required.

When Lyra’s newest contract forces her to face her former friend turned rival, she can see all of her dreams burning up right before her. Can she and Kaden move past the bitter taste of their ruined friendship? And could the heat in the kitchen lead to something even more?

Each Celebrity Corgi Romance stands alone, but they’re definitely more fun if you read the whole series together. Get your copy of Charming the Chef and book your romantic escape today!

One of the early reviews for the book

Charming the Chef is another wonderful book in the Celebrity Corgi series. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the characters. Lyra St. Claire is a celebrity chef who has her own television show, A Lesson with Lyra and she has her own restaurant, La Joliesse in LA. She also has a cute corgi named Cinnamon.

Sexy Kaden Hunter studied with Lyra for three years when they were in culinary school together and dreaming about their future restaurants. They have not really talked since Lyra left Portland for LA until she ends up stopping in to eat at his restaurant in Portland before she returns to LA.

This book was so full of interesting characters, a cute corgi and a mystery to solve too. I also liked that one of the characters from the first book in the series had a small part in this story too. Great suspense to keep you reading although I do wonder what happened after the story ended. I received an advance copy of this book and I willingly chose to write an honest review.
