Book Review: Dining With Joy by Rachel Hauck
I really enjoyed reading “Dining With Joy” by Rachel Hauck. It’s a good book, with a little bit of romance included!
The main character, Joy, is a TV cooking-show host – who can’t cook. [I will admit…at the beginning of the book, I thought it was a little “far-fetched” that someone could be the host of a popular cooking show and not cook…but as you keep reading, it becomes more rational to believe.] Then she meets Luke Redmond, a handsome, caring guy who CAN cook. She thinks he’s her “way out” of the cooking part of the show…but it doesn’t quite work out that way. By not telling Luke her “secret”, she almost loses him. But, of course, love wins out in the end.
This book was not only an enjoyable romance book, it also touched upon following God’s will in making choices for our lives - including totally relying on God and praying to Him when our lives seem topsy-turvy.
This book was easy-to-read. In fact, I couldn’t put it down once I started it. And, yes, I did cry a little while I was reading it…especially towards the end.
I would definitely read other books written by Rachel Hauck. In my opinion, she’s a great author, and as stated earlier, I really enjoyed this book!
