About the Book

Who Says Only Twentysomethings Can Have Fun, Romance, and Great Sex?

Married mother of three and Beverly Hills cookbook author Miriam Levy dreams about food. Her best friend, divorced Kate McGrath, dreams about "The One" who got away. When, after twenty-five years, Kate reconnects with her unforgettable first love on Google and he asks her to visit him halfway around the world (while his wife happens to be away), she begs Miriam to go with her. Reluctant but restless, Miriam agrees. Their overseas adventures awaken the women's spirits and teach them about passion, love, and life without regret.

Inspired by the author's own true story, Cookin' for Love is a funny and poignant tale about the comfort of friendship and the resilience of true love. With a hint of the forbidden, a dash of courage, and heaps of heart-along with twenty-five delectable recipes-this contemporary romp serves up all the ingredients for fine food, romance, and adventure.
