Hot Dishby Connie Brockway
Synopses & Reviews
Here she is...
Years ago, Jenn Lind’s family’s dynasty crashed, forcing them to move out of their Atlanta penthouse and into a cabin in Fawn Creek, Minnesota. But Jenn saw a way out—she’d win the Buttercup Pageant, grab the scholarship, and run far, far away. The plan almost worked too, until some conniving townspeople cheated her out of her tiara. Still, she swore she’d make it out someday…
Twenty years later, she’s on the cusp of real stardom. She’s about to leave for New York to be crowned queen of daytime TV when Fawn Creek asks her to be grand marshal of the town’s sesquicentennial. Her network accepts, delighted over the potential PR, especially since she’ll be sharing the “honor” with international celebrity Steve Jaax, a man she got tangled up with once long ago. Between the all too attractive Steve, the townspeople, and a hundred pound butter sculpture, Jenn may never escape Fawn Creek. Or even worse, she might.
"A rancid, 20-year-old bust carved from a 100-pound block of butter is the main ingredient for Brockway's saucy contemporary debut, which follows a long line of popular historical romances (most recently My Surrender). All Jenn Lind ever wanted was to put as much distance as possible between herself and Fawn Creek, the tiny Minnesota hamlet where her parents landed after gambling away the family fortune. Two decades after her escape, she's on the brink of TV stardom as the newest Martha Stewart. All is well until she learns that, as the former Buttercup Princess of Fawn Creek, she's been conscripted to serve as the town's sesquicentennial grand marshal, a title she's to share with Steve Jaxx-the famed sculptor (and ex-con) who carved her bust out of butter twenty years before. Upon arrival she learns that the butter head, which her mom had stored in the barn freezer all those years, has been stolen and is being held for ransom. While the inept blackmailers barter, the butter head is slowly melting, and Steve is desperate to rescue the head before something he hid in it resurfaces. While the plot has a make-it-up-as-you-go feel, Brockway's talent for creating funny characters and a dead-on sense of place will keep romance fans enchanted." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
In bestselling author Brockway's first contemporary romance, a renowned sculptor from New York City finds himself in Fawn Creek, Minnesota, carving heads of beauty pageant contestants out of dairy products. When the failed beauty queen he meets there has more going on in her head than he expects, together they discover what true happiness can be. Original.
