Flirting with Felicity is a delightful story of a little kindness goes a long way.
Felicity Wright has taken her passion of cooking to a grand level as the head chef of an historical hotel’s restaurant. She’s a people pleaser and loves the fact that she’s able to support herself and her father who needs hourly nursing due to a head injury from a car accident.
Her main concern is living her life and taking care of her father. Nothing can change her mind on her responsibilities.
The day the owner of the hotel dies, she’s utterly surprised that he left the hotel in her name. She hadn’t realized she knew the man.
Everything should be peaches and cream after her inheritance.
In walks Blake Bancroft, the former owner’s nephew and owner of the rest of the chain of related hotels and restaurants. He’s handsome, he’s kind, he’s ultra-rich, and he wants the restaurant.
Felicity can’t fight Blake’s high power attorneys, so he makes a deal with her.
The deal includes spending a lot of time together and keeping the unwanted hormones in check.
I had fun reading this and chuckling at Felicity’s and Blake’s attempts to keep all things business because we well know that the heart has a mind of its own! Not only that, but it’s a maze of considerations for both to be happy with the end result in business and love.
Gerri Russell also treats her readers to a collection of Felicity’s recipes. I did try the homemade mac and cheese. It was as rewarding as the storyJ
