JUST A TASTE
Taking a break from hockey, Martin turns her attention to the restaurant side of the Dante family. A warmhearted romance with in-depth characters, this story will leave you satisfied, salivating and ready to try one the recipes included. Martin serves up a real treat.
The road to romance is not smooth. Anthony, a widower whose police officer wife was killed more than a year ago, quickly begins sparring, debating and cooking with Vivi. It takes time, honesty and some really great meals to reach the sweet at the end. (Berkley Sensation, Jan., 350 pp, $7.99)
