Release Day Blitz: Monster Chef By Margaret McHeyzer

Holly Walker had everything she’d ever dreamed about – a happy marriage and being mum to beautiful brown-eyed Emma - until an accident nineteen months ago tore her world apart. Now she's a widow and single mother to a boisterous little 7-year-old girl, looking for a new start. Ready to take the next step, Holly has found herself a job as a maître d’ at Table One, a once-acclaimed restaurant in the heart of Sydney. But one extremely arrogant Frenchman isn't going to be easy to work with...

Twenty years ago, Pierre LeRoux came to Australia, following the stunning Aussie girl he'd fallen in love with. He and his wife put their personal lives on hold, determined for Pierre to take Sydney's culinary society by storm. Just as his bright star was on the upswing, tragedy claimed the woman he was hopelessly in love with. He had been known as a Master Chef, but since his wife’s death he has become known as Monster Chef.

Can two broken people rebuild their lives and find happiness once more?

I have stated before that I have had 50/50 luck with this author so when I signed up to read Monster Chef I will admit I was skeptical and almost wrote it off in my head as another one I wouldn’t either like or finish.  It looks like that 50/50 pattern is continuing but this time I really liked the book and I am so glad I gave it an honest shot.

Monster Chef is more than just another romance novel.  It is about two separate people who have lost their spouses and how they chose to deal with their loss.  Some of the most explosive feelings and passion are discovered  when the line that separates love and hate between individuals  becomes blurred and is allowed to explode.

To be blunt, Pierre earned the title Monster Chef because he can be this massive douche bag asshole.  I am so glad that I would never have to work with him in the kitchen because I most likely would end up fileting his ass.  Literally.  Holly is sweet but don’t let that sweetness fool you, she has a backbone and isn’t afraid to put Pierre in his place.  In an analogy appropriate to cooking, oil and vinegar don’t mix and to say these two clashed at times would be an understatement.  But these two also complemented each other perfectly like the finest wine to a perfectly cooked dinner, with some spice along the way.

Monster Chef has convinced me to not always write off an author if some of her books don’t work for you, because you might be surprised at how much you end up liking one that you didn’t think you would.

Author Bio

**Bound by custom or unique by choice.**

There's something about the written word that's pure magic.

Possibly it's the fact that there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering that they're able to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.

Until next time
