Dining with Joy by Rachel Hauck

Joy Ballard didn't grow up dreaming of being on television or cooking for a living. To fulfill her father's dying wish, Joy took over his televised cooking show. The only problem is that she can't cook. Through careful editing and the help of co-workers, Joy has successfully hosted the popular cooking show for several years. However, her nemesis, Wenda Devine, knows Joy's secret and is determined to bring her down. When Luke Redmond enters the picture, Joy thinks she may have found her way out of the deception. Luke is her handsome, new co-host and best of all, he can cook! If he took over all the cooking, she could just do the hosting. Unfortunately, Joy's secret is outed on national television before she can put her plan into place. With her career in shambles and Luke gone, Joy slowly realizes that her tragedy has the potential to be a blessing.

I loved Dining with Joy by Rachel Hauck. The book was filled with humor and romance, but also a spiritual lesson about trusting God and finding one's worth in Him. Joy's character was authentic, savvy, and well-written. She was a mixture of mischief, delight, and charm. The author's use of unique situations, various characters, and humor made the book irresistible. In fact, I read it in under three days. I really have nothing negative to say about this book and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an inspirational, romantic read.
