#BookReview: Love à la Mode by @StephKateStrohm

About the Book:

Take two American teen chefs, add one heaping cup of Paris, toss in a pinch of romance, and stir. . . .

Rosie Radeke firmly believes that happiness can be found at the bottom of a mixing bowl. But she never expected that she, a random nobody from East Liberty, Ohio, would be accepted to celebrity chef Denis Laurent's school in Paris, the most prestigious cooking program for teens in the entire world. Life in Paris, however, isn't all cream puffs and crepes. Faced with a challenging curriculum and a nightmare professor, Rosie begins to doubt her dishes.

Henry Yi grew up in his dad's restaurant in Chicago, and his lifelong love affair with food landed him a coveted spot in Chef Laurent's school. He quickly connects with Rosie, but academic pressure from home and his jealousy over Rosie's growing friendship with gorgeous bad-boy baker Bodie Tal makes Henry lash out and push his dream girl away.

Desperate to prove themselves, Rosie and Henry cook like never before while sparks fly between them. But as they reach their breaking points, they wonder whether they have what it takes to become real chefs.

Perfect for lovers of Chopped Teen Tournament and Kids Baking Championship, as well as anyone who dreams of a romantic trip to France, Love la Mode follows Rosie and Henry as they fall in love with food, with Paris, and ultimately, with each other.


This title will be released on November 27, 2018.

My Review: This book was so cute I will say that parts of this one were a little on the slow side. But all in all, this was a very cute book that would be great to read if you're looking for something light to enjoy.  This one takes us to Paris and a cooking school for teens, man this is a book you do not want to be hungry I made that mistake and ugh I am so mad that I didn't have something sweet and savory laying around.  Most of the story was well paced but there were some parts that I did not enjoy because it seemed that the characters were just kind of rambling and the story wasn't going anywhere.  

The characters were adorable as well as the story. I really didn't connect with anyone but that was totally ok with this one.  This one ended with a nice little tie up with a bow to match.  Its so not something with a lot of depth but if you are looking for something light and with food and well PARIS check this one out. 

Do I Recommend this book? Yes, this was a very cute light read!
