"Heavy issues with a light heart…"

Recipe for Persuasion

by Sonali Dev

Recipe For Persuasion deals with underlying themes of cultural identity, abusive relationships, complex parent-child dynamics, and feminism, but it still manages to read like a light-hearted romance.  The protagonists are loveable and fragile (and dreamy!), their flirtation is adorable, and their tension is steamy.  This book has a typical romance story arc, but the setting of a celebrity cooking competition is unique and fun.  If you like cute rom-coms, this one won’t weigh you down with its heavy undertones, but it may give you things to think about.  Highly recommend!
