The Saturday Night Supper Club (Supper Club #1)The Saturday Night Supper Club by Carla Laureano
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Denver chef Rachel Bishop has accomplished everything she’s dreamed and some things she never dared hope, like winning a James Beard award and heading up her own fine-dining restaurant. But when a targeted smear campaign causes her to be pushed out of the business by her partners, she vows to do whatever it takes to get her life back … even if that means joining forces with the man who inadvertently set the disaster in motion.

Essayist Alex Kanin never imagined his pointed editorial would go viral. Ironically, his attempt to highlight the pitfalls of online criticism has the opposite effect: it revives his own flagging career by destroying that of a perfect stranger. Plagued by guilt-fueled writer’s block, Alex vows to do whatever he can to repair the damage. He just doesn’t expect his interest in the beautiful chef to turn personal.

Alex agrees to help rebuild Rachel’s tarnished image by offering his connections and his home to host an exclusive pop-up dinner party targeted to Denver’s most influential citizens: the Saturday Night Supper Club. As they work together to make the project a success, Rachel begins to realize Alex is not the unfeeling opportunist she once thought he was, and that perhaps there’s life--and love--outside the pressure-cooker of her chosen career. But can she give up her lifelong goals without losing her identity as well?



I really enjoyed this book. It had good Christian themes and had a really good message. I love books that I don't have to worry about giving to my mom to read. The kind that have no cursing or sexual content. This was AA+. Well-written and well-plotted out. I loved the characters in it also.  Side note here...the author took the time to do her research - this is a plus in my book.  I don't like when I have to ding authors on the fact that they have nothing to back their book up with and no facts.  This happens more than people think.  She had the Denver area down pat...being to Denver and seeing the area in July - I could see that in my mind's eye.  The chef part and food was right down my alley because let's be honest, I like to eat and it kept my attention!! This was just an all-around good, wholesome book.
