How to Stuff a Wild Zucchini

Sophisticated New York playwright Lori Scott feels like a failure when her producer boyfriend calls it quits on both their relationship and her first play. On a dare, she throws a dart at a map and ends up moving to Brigham City, Utah, where she plans to set aside writing, religion, and men to focus on her new career substituting as The Garden Guru for the local paper. But fate has something else in mind. When she accidentally lights her house on fire, Lori has no idea of the sparks that lie ahead.
Will she be able to resist the charm and persistence of local firefighting hero John Wayne Walker? Will old hurts and fears cause her to turn her back on the best thing that’s ever happened to her? Author Heather Horrocks brings a fresh, fun voice to this delightful contemporary romance about following your heart, finding true love, and wrestling with a basket full of zucchini!

I went to Deseret Book a couple of weeks ago, hoping they had Tristi Pinkston's new book. While I was looking at the wall of fiction for it I saw "How to Stuff a Wild Zucchini". Even though I am not a big fan of zucchini, I was intrigued by the title so I decided to give it a try. I am usually hesitant to buy books by authors I am not familiar with, but I'm glad I did this time.
This book is full of romantic twists and turns and zucchini. We are looking forward to trying the recipe for Zucchini Chicken Curry with Spicy Mango Fruit Chutney, included in the back, sometime in the near future.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone that is looking for a light romantic comedy.
This book is published by Deseret Book and is available from their website, and as always Inter library loan.
