TACOS FOR TWO by Betsy St.Amant, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise

One Food Truck owner who can’t cook, trying to salvage her legacy.
One wealthy guy trying to go against the grain of his family business.
Equals a recipe for disaster!

In a cute romantic mess up reminiscent of You’ve Got Mail, this modern take makes you long for a Happily Ever After.

Rory Perez feels the pressure of caring for her sweet mentally challenged cousin and living out her family legacy. Jude Worthington is under the shadow of his family law firm but would rather be cooking tacos. Rory signs up for a secret chat dating site as Color Me Turquoise and Jude does as well as Strongman 99. They begin messaging and hit it off. Trouble comes when they enter a food truck contest and do not realize their connection to the chat room. They are both putting all their tacos in one basket but will they realize that winning isn’t everything?

It was a complex, layered story with lots of fun banter. Just the thing for a great pick me up. A clean read and a rom-com in the classic style.

4 stars and a clean read, very faint faith thread. 

BackCover Blurb:
Rory Perez, a food truck owner who can't cook, is struggling to keep the business she inherited from her aunt out of the red--and an upcoming contest during Modest's annual food truck festival seems the best way to do it. The prize money could finally give her a solid financial footing and keep her cousin with special needs paid up at her beloved assisted living home. Then maybe Rory will have enough time to meet the man she's been talking to via an anonymous online dating site.

Jude Strong is tired of being a puppet at his manipulative father's law firm, and the food truck festival seems like the perfect opportunity to dive into his passion for cooking and finally call his life his own. But if he loses the contest, he's back at the law firm for good. Failure is not an option.

Complications arise when Rory's chef gets mono and she realizes she has to cook after all. Then Jude discovers that his stiffest competition is the same woman he's been falling for online the past month.

Will these unlikely chefs sacrifice it all for the sake of love? Or will there only ever be tacos for one?
