Harlequin gives readers a summer gift with its innovative single-title release, HE SAID, SHE SAID. Rival chefs, each with a local cooking show, vie for a national syndication deal. Pitted against each other by a vengeful executive with an ax to grind, the two agree not to let the spectre of competition split them as their attraction grows. Then when things get messy, they join forces to get even.

What makes this story so much fun is the style in which it's been written. Jasmine Cresswell and Margaret St. George trade writing duties, chapter by chapter, each taking the voice of one of the main characters. The immense talent of the two pull this off seamlessly and the result is a whole lot of fun. (July, 250 pp., $5.99)
