giving her family members good jobs working with her on her show, books, etc and avoiding situations where she must cede control Having seen what her father s departure did to her mother, she is most definitely not interested in love Enter Josh, PI and security detail, employed by her cousin assistant following series of unpleasant events And I have to say this plot was done really rather well with sufficient false leads etc to make it a bit of a mystery Now Josh is not a man to mix business with pleasure, so they should be perfectly safe from each other but of course that pesky chemistry just won t leave them alone The layers in this book work well peeling away her fears and rationale uncovering the perpetrator of the threats delving into family dynamics and loyalties and the romance A very promising start to this new series, thank you Ms Jaeger Cooking with Kandy is the EBC s number one food show, making Kandy Laine a highly successful woman, and apparently a target Kandy is self

first she is giving, caring, and would do anything for those in her inner circle So when threats on Kandy s life growserious, she s honestly perplexed that it could be coming from someone close to

and heart Will getting to the bottom of the danger signal the end of his time with Kandy or will it start the beginning of somethingCooking with Kandy is an enjoyable combination of sweet romance and light mystery suspense As the first title in Ms Jaeger s new Will Cook for Love series, readers are introduced to Kandy and her entire extended family, ninety percent of which seem to work for her in some capacity The author has created a warm, genuine environment, which should serve well for the series setting.Kandy and Josh are two peas in a pod food reference intended both are driven individuals who have their own fair share of baggage While each has found success and happiness with their career paths, it isn t until they are put together that they truly see some holes and loneliness in their lives Although they are forced by circumstance to be together, they develop a genuine bond, and the nature of the events surrounding their pairing lends itself to a rapid opening up and sharing of innermost thoughts and desires Josh and Kandy are sweet together They are like the couple that finishes each other s sentences And while it took a little while for the steam to build, once the couple allows themselves to indulge in desire, the heat factor raises quickly.Kandy s world is full of characters, and at times it was difficult to remember who was who This is important because not only is the book a romance, there is a pretty serious mystery which gives way to a bit of suspense Ms Jaegar establishes a solid problem, complete with clues and red herrings I enjoyed piecing together the puzzle and trying to discern which clues were real and which I could toss out I had one small complaint about the unveiling and the perpetrator, but I can t share it without being a spoiler Nevertheless, it didn t ruin my enjoyment of the title, which overall was an exciting ride.At its heart, Cooking with Kandy is a lovely sweetheart romance with an engrossing whodunit plot Kandy and Josh are both intense yet joyful, making them a great match and tender pairing Although each had a few hiccups in their behaviors that bothered me, overall I enjoyed how they took time to work out problems, no matter how personal or painful, together I look forward to readingstories set in the Will Cook for Love series.My Rating B, Liked ItReview copy provided by

to me Once I read the synopsis, I changed my mind and I am glad I did I found myself really enjoying this story.I like the fact that it had a strong female character however to be honest what drew me in was Josh He was the perfect male lead If I was to imagine the perfect male specimen, it would be him Someone who is dedicated to their job, honorable, kind, sweet and lets face it hot as all get out, I couldn t get enough of him The way he took care of Kandy had me swooning throughout the whole story The attraction and tension had the perfect balance of get it over with already and I m glad this story wasn t a free for all bedroom plot I have to admit I also didn t figure out who was behind all the actions that required Kandy to have protection I normally know right away however it was not made obvious Kudos to Jaeger for keeping me guessing.I really enjoyed this story and I am glad to see the next book will feature Kandy s sister Gemma I think I will stick with this series Just finished Cooking With Kandy by Peggy Jaeger and it was wonderful I ve had a rash of meh books lately so this one was a breath of fresh air It had everything in it I liked and none of the squick points that make me sigh and cringe The characters were well done and the chemistry between them totally believable I loved Kandy s family and that she was so dedicated to them I also really liked the fact

believable I loved Kandy s family and that she was so dedicated to them I also really liked the fact that she was willing to admit she d made some mistakes and needed to work on changing some of her behavior The hero was a nice change from the arrogant alphahole you often get He was certainly rugged, sexy and in control but he didn t always have to have his way, unless it came to the protection of the heroine And that was his job This is a romance that has a bit of mystery and suspense to it which I always love The sexual tension between the two main characters was intense and steamy yet I really liked that they stayed professional most of the book and weren t jumping into bed or having sex throughout But when they finally did, ouch, it was hot It s nice to read a book that isn t just one long sex scene and actually has a plot There s a nice teaser at the end for the second book in the series and it includes Kandy s sister, Gemma And she was quite a character in this book, so I can t wait to see what this author has in store for her I received this book from Net Galley Sugar and spice and everything sexy make the perfect recipe for romance in this brand new series by Peggy Jaeger Look for exclusive recipes in each book Kandy Laine built her wildly popular food empire the old fashioned way starting with the basic ingredients of her grandmother s recipes and flavoring it all with her particular brand of sweet spice From her cookbooks to her hit TV show, Kandy is a kitchen queen and suddenly someone is determined to poison her cup With odd accidents and threatening messages piling up, strong willed Kandy can t protest when her team hires someone to keep her safe but she can t deny that the man for the job looks deliciousJosh Keane is a private investigator, not a bodyguard But with one eyeful of Kandy s ebony curls and dimpled smile, he s signing on to uncover who s cooking up trouble for the gorgeous chef As the attraction between them starts to simmer, it s not easy to keep his mind on the job, but when the strange distractions turn to true danger, he ll stop at nothing to keep Kandy safe and show her that a future together is on the menu I ve been a fan of Peggy s writing for a while now and was so excited to be offered a chance to review an ARC of her latest release in exchange for my honest review Her characters are always so real and her stories never fail to satisfy Cooking with Kandy is no exception, and I m very excited that this will be a series of books.First let me say, I m not a fan of this cover art I don t think it does either of the main characters justice Reading the story, I imagined them both slightly older I ve been a fan of Peggy s writing for a while now and was so excited to be offered a chance to review an

hair should be darker, her curvespronounced Josh should be rougher, withplanes and angles and bigger biceps Much bigger But on to the actual story and writing.Kandy Laine is a celebrity chef who s written a few best selling cookbooks and has the top rated cooking show on television She s the oldest daughter in a tight knit yet slightly dysfunctional family, and takes pride in the fact that her

woman, decides to hire a private investigator to figure out if its simple harassment or somethingEnter Josh Keane, an ex cop turned PI who takes the bodyguard investigative position.Sparks immediately fly between them as the tension quickly ratchets up The harassment turns from annoying to dangerous and Josh becomes Kandy s shadow to keep her safe Kandy feels the heat in his every look, despite his insistence on keeping his distance But will he be able to keep his focus on his job and keep her safe Told in alternating points of view, the story moves at a satisfying pace, with lots and lots of sensual tension sizzling between the main characters The cast of characters and multiple red herrings reminded me of some of Jennifer Crusie s romantic suspense novels Humor, heart, and sizzle wrapped into a puzzle to be solved.If you like a touch of suspense with your romantic tension, give this novel and this series a try You will totally be glad you did I love this new series from Peggy Jaeger But the cover, not so much Yeah, I know the author doesn t have much say in the cover, I m just saying I usually don t read contemporary Romance, I prefer a little magic in my tales, but I adore Ms

becomeworrisome With the beautiful Kandy on his mind, he finds it difficult to keep his mind on business until the distracting incidents turn dangerous He ll stop a nothing to keep her safe, whether or not they have a future together.Ms Jaeger s characters are always well rounded and her stories never fail to entertain I enjoy the amusing situations that Peggy creates for her characters Laughter is good for the soul, so I hear I truly enjoyed this story and look forward to the next one I highly recommend Cooking for Kandy Since I have an ARC for the next book on tap for next month, I thought I d take a chance on this one while it was in my price range and get caught up on events before reading the ARC It was a decent enough story, but not anything to really crow about.I didn t care for how pushy everyone got when it came to Josh They were either actively hitting on him, or trying to push Kandy into having sex with him It got to be too much Yes, we readers know he s handsome, can we move on now was my refra Since I have an ARC for the next book on tap for next month, I thought I d take a chance on this one while it was in my price range and get caught up on events before reading

Kandy into having sex with him It got to be too much Yes, we readers know he s handsome, can we move on now was my refrain for much of this book Kandy was an irritant as well, from her name to her desire to make everything better for her entire family, but do nothing for herself.The story was engaging enough, but again, nothing really special The stalker angle threw me a couple of red herrings, but was easily enough resolved Will reserve judgement on the author until I read the next book A long time fan of mysteries, I m always on the lookout for new series with strong female protagonists And thanks to Peggy Jaeger, I have found one Her Will Cook For Love series has all those wonderful elements that make mysteries so delightful to read likeable protagonists, quirky cast of secondary characters, family and career issues, multiple red herrings, recipes, and romance I enjoyed reading Cooking with Kandy and look forward to the next installment.
