Fiction • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Moniqua Plante and Jacob York narrate this contemporary romance, which salutes southwestern cuisine, the entrepreneurial spirit, and love. Plante creates a memorable heroine in Elena, a Latina who is about to become head chef of the Orange Bear, a new upscale restaurant in Aspen. Despite her natural reserve, Elena finds herself falling in love with Julian, a Hollywood director who has invested in a number of trendy restaurants, including the Orange Bear. Plante expertly portrays Elena's doubts, strength, and culinary expertise, while York smoothly reads some of the chapters showing the points of view of the lead male characters. Listeners will empathize with Elena as they hear her thoughts, strategies, and pain. Most of all, they'll enjoy her scrumptious recipes.
