Publisher's Weekly Review

Terry returns readers to Sunshine Vineyards in Sunshine Valley, Calif., where restaurateur Parker Kincaid is rushing to open his new restaurant in time for his brother's Christmas wedding. Sassy, sweet aspiring chef Gabriella Montani's dream is to escape her famous father's shadow and make a name for herself. When Gabriella auditions to be the head chef of Parker's restaurant-carefully not revealing her connection to her father-they're unable to ignore their strong physical attraction, so they agree to just one night together and then it's back to business. However, when they mix in heartfelt talks and professional brainstorming, their steamy night goes from "special of the day" to "regular menu item," something Parker is not prepared for. He and his siblings have recently learned the unpleasant truths of their late parents' marriage, leaving him no tolerance for more secrets, so he's devastated to learn Gabi's been keeping one of her own. The revelation of the family mystery that's been the thread of the series will shock readers. Terry's steady pacing, well-developed characters, and vivid descriptions showcase her excellent storytelling skills and set the bar high for the next in the series.

Kirkus Review

A Christmas wedding leads to a high-heat, food-filled romance in the third volume (Perfect for You, 2017, etc.) of the Sunshine Creek Vineyard series.Reality TV chef Parker Kincade is rushing to raise the barn that will house his brother's wedding reception when Gabriella Montani begs for a chance to cook for him. The estranged daughter of a celebrity chef is desperate to escape both her father's legacy and her terrible job as a personal chef for a lottery winner. All Gabi needs is a chance to prove her skills. Parker is immediately drawn to Gabi, and it's not long before the job interview turns into a one-night stand. With both their careers on the line, neither of them is ready for a relationship, but working side by side makes it difficult for them to keep their distance. The explicit details of their romantic interludes and three-course Italian dinners will be, as Gabi puts it, "deliciously remembered at the end of the night." But family drama and long-buried secrets threaten to tear them apart. The rest of the Kincade family pops in with plenty of news to shareolder brother Jordan is helping his fiancee, Lucy, with the wedding plans, and Aunt Pippy finally tells the Kincade siblings "the story that would either make or break them and their fragile beliefs" about their parents. Readers who are new to the series will be able to get the gist. Hotter than hot cocoa and just as sweet, it's a good read for getting into the holiday spirit.

Booklist Review

Gabi Montani wants to work for Parker Kincade so badly she applies for a chef's job even before he is finished renovating his new restaurant and planning his brother's Christmas wedding. As high as the temperature in the kitchen gets, the sexual chemistry cooking between Gabi and Parker is even hotter in Terry's richly emotional and delectably spicy holiday treat.--Charles, John Copyright 2017 Booklist
