“Sue’s Must Reads.” (click on March)

     — Sue Grimshaw, Borders Books

“Edwards cooks up the perfect combination of compelling characters and an intriguing plot that delivers a marvelous confection of irresistible details about the fascinating world inside the kitchen of a gourmet restaurant.”

     Booklist (Starred Review)

On the Steamy Side is an instant re-read, a fresh, emotions-first take on the food-infused romance and, quite simply, a stellar example of the health and vibrancy of the American contemporary romance. I’m betting it ends up on any number of Best of 2010 lists.”

     — Michelle Buonfiglio, Barnes & Noble’s Heart to Heart

On the Steamy Side is a solid effort from an amazing storyteller and worthy of a Perfect 10.”

     Romance Reviews Today

“The kitchen scenes are so vibrant, I can almost see the flash of the knives and hear the sizzle of the saucepans. I feel like I am right there, inside that sacred domain, seeing the success and the failures. And the Market staff and their romances and their breakups and their secret longings kept me glued to the pages.”

     DearAuthor, C+

“A delight from cover to cover . . . My favorite aspect is how skillfully Ms. Edwards weaves emotional subjects throughout the novel . . . On the Steamy Side is much more than a sexy romance. It [has] depth and humanity. This series is headed for my keeper shelves.”

“Steam up your reading with On the Steamy Side by mega-talented Louisa Edwards.”

“Fast paced and scintillating . . . Boiling and searing love scenes aside, the complex relationships and self-discovery shared with the unique backdrop of the cut-throat and competitive culinary arts forces the reader to consume page after page as voraciously as the chefs can dish it up.”

“If you need a real feel-good, make your heart sing, and your body tingle kind of afternoon this is the perfect recipe for success”

     Coffee Time Romance, 4 cups

“In this second book of her Recipe for Love series, Edwards brings readers back into the friendly confines of Market, the trendy Manhattan restaurant introduced in her first novel. The lovable kitchen staff returns as well, in all their culinary glory. The plot, the humor, the angst and the romance are superb, and Edwards’ writing style is as crisp and clean as a freshly starched toque-blanche. Reader, party of one, your novel is ready.”

“You could fry an egg between these pages of bubbling hot romance! Bringing back many of the characters from her first book, Can’t Stand the Heat, Edwards incorporates their back story into this new tale of love found among the pots and pans. With the popularity of the Food Network, Louisa Edwards’ delicious series will be a huge hit with foodies and romantics alike.”

“Every once in a few books, you get one that really stuns you . . . When you read one of these, you have no choice but to pass the word on to friends and relatives with the exclamation: ‘You’ve got to read this!’ So to you I say: ‘You’ve got to read On the Steamy Side by Louisa Edwards.’”

     Mom’s Favorite Stuff

“If you are in the ‘Market’ for a good ‘foodie’ book with memorable characters who will tug at your heartstrings, then On the Steamy Side should be on your TBR pile.”
