While Love Stirs Book Review


About the Book

 After graduating from Fannie Farmer's School of Cookery in 1910, Charlotte Gregory is ready to stir things up. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to travel, lecture, and give cooking demonstrations on the very latest kitchen revolution--the gas stove--and certainly doesn't mind that the gas company has hired the handsome Lewis Mathis to perform at her lectures. Lewis encourages her work, especially her crusade to introduce fresh, appetizing, nutritious food to those convalescing in hospitals. But young hospital superintendent Dr. Joel Brooks is not convinced any changes should be made--especially by this outspoken young woman.

When Charlotte and Joel are coerced into planning a fund-raising gala for the hospital, will this combustible pair explode?

Fan favorite Lorna Seilstad is back with a breezy, lighthearted love triangle that will keep readers guessing. Attention to historic detail adorns the timeless story of a young woman looking for true love and making her way in a rapidly changing world.(Goodreads)

 My Review

I did not read the first book prior to reading this book, as it is about sisters with separate stories I didn't feel like I missed much. This book was unique because the cooking aspect went into great detail. Think cooking show only early 1900s era. Charlotte's character was difficult for me to relate with but I did enjoy her attitude. The first part of the book was intriguing but slowly I started to lose interest. 
It's a sweet story, yet predictable but a fun short read.

 "I received this book from Revell for free in exchange for an honest review."
