Melissa Cutler brings us a sweet read in One More Taste, the second in her One and Only Texas series. For years, chef Emily Ford has lived and breathed her job at the Briscoe Ranch Resort, working for the family who took a chance on her when she most needed it. So to hell with being relegated to line cook by the man hired to turn around the struggling resort—a man who didn’t even bother tasting her delectable offering before suggesting her demotion. She is a fine executive catering chef, and she challenges Knox Briscoe to let her prove it.
Knox spent his formative years listening to his late father’s bitter stories of how Knox’s uncle cheated him out of the Briscoe family business. Knox has worked hard and made a name for himself as the head of a company that turns around failing businesses. So when he’s approached by his uncle for help saving the family resort, he sees it as his golden opportunity to do what he loves best. And if he gets some revenge for his dad on the family Knox never knew, well, so much the better.
What he doesn’t count on is the sweetness of his grandmother and some of his cousins. And he definitely didn’t see Emily Ford coming, yet every day brings them closer together. One More Taste is a sexy page-turner of a story peopled with strongly motivated characters you’ll cheer for.
