A Great Story!

Caterina is a feisty Italian spitfire who must leave home and sever all ties to her family to escape the mob. She ends up in a small Oregon town, Pendleton, where she meets the local deputy, and tries to start over. Can you ever really escape from the mob though?

I really enjoyed the story, and the narrator did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life. I didn't realize this was book 2 in the series, but that didn't take away from the story. I certainly plan on catching up with the rest of the series.

Great Story!

Caterina is running for her life and finds herself in Pendleton, OR. Her love for cooking amazing Italian food is a welcomed new cuisine for this little Oregon town. What she does not expect though is how true the statement, "A way to a man's heart is through his stomach." is. Even though the citizens of Pendleton is loving this new food, Caterina is hiding a secret that she is terrified to let the law help her with.

Kade is the Pendleton's deputy who has decided that having a wife is not possible due to the danger it may bring her. He cannot resist, however, the mouth-watering food that Caterina introduces him to. As he cannot get enough of the wonderful food of Pendelton's newest citizen brings, he also finds that his heart is falling for the spitfire cook who not only satisfies his physical hunger, but also his hunger for love. Kade knows she is hiding something behind her wonderful talent. Can he gain her trust even as they both clash as both personalities are as strong as the food Cat makes?

Shanna Hatfield is a wonderful story teller. After I started this book, I found that there is a book before this one that I have not listened to, but I did not feel that I missed anything. I do think that it would be a richer story had I listened to that one first, but this is a GREAT stand alone too! I plan to listen to the first book!

Meghan Kelly does a beautiful job narrating this book. Her characters come to life as she tells Catarina and Kade's story. I look forward to listening to more books by Megan!
