TIPPING THE WAITRESS WITH DIAMONDS
TIPPING THE WAITRESS WITH DIAMONDS (4.5) by Nina Harrington: Head waiter Sienna Rossi was devastated when her fiance betrayed her, and she's been career-centered ever since. When she learns he's been hired as head chef where she works, Sienna takes two weeks off to reassess. That's when chef Brett Cameron, her first crush, re-enters her life. The two work together to resurrect her aunt's failing restaurant while she's recuperating from surgery. In the process, they fall in love, but Sienna's past makes her reluctant to mix business with pleasure again. A well-constructed plot and a scrumptious, larger-than-life hero combined with generous amounts of humor and pathos make for an excellent read.
