Review: Cooking Up Trouble (The Brides of Blossom, Texas #2) by Lenora Worth

Can sweet and spicy make for a delicious pairing?

When barbecue food truck owner Holt Collins caters a wedding at the romantic wedding venue Falling Blossoms, he meets a woman who throws him for a loop. She may be gorgeous, but they clash immediately. He did however love the venue and makes an appointment to show it to his finance, only to receive a break-up text.

Devastated, Holt spends a few days trying to figure out what went wrong and what to do next. He decides to grab a bite at a local cafe, unaware that it is owned by Kayla Burton. After telling Kayla he’s no longer engaged, he later finds her kitchen in crisis and Kayla desperate for help, but unwilling to ask. He steps in and saves the day, but she hates giving up control of her kitchen, much less her heart. She’s attracted, but he’s just been jilted. Is this a rebound fling or fate working its magic?

Can a cupcake cafĂ© owner find true love with Mr. Hot Holt Barbecue? 

My Review: 

Things heat up hotter than a Texas summer when Holt Collins, a BBQ guru, comes to Blossom, Texas, and sets eyes on cafe owner, Kayla Burton.  Both Holt and Kayla are a bit damaged, but together they help each other overcome the hurt of their past.  Holt recently got dumped by his fiancĂ© and Kayla worries about getting her heart broken again as her last relationship didn't end so well.  As they work together through the Labor Day festivities and their friends' wedding they begin fall in love.

The author told this story in a way that I felt I was transported to Blossom with all of its small town charm and friendly people. The descriptions and details of this story really made it come to life.  I can't wait to read the next installment in the Brides of Blossom, Texas series.
