A Tale of the Curious Cookbook

Boone Walton has tried hard to create some distance between himself and his past. He’s invested in his new life, his New Orleans art gallery, and his friendship with Scott Wren. Things finally seem to be settling down to normal, and Boone couldn’t be happier.

Chef Scott Wren wants much more than normal with Boone. He wants to raise things to the next level, but Boone is terrified—and not because of the ghost in Scott’s apartment or Scott’s relatives. No, Boone’s past is about to pay him a visit, and the only thing that can get between Boone, Scott, and a hinky recipe for chocolate mousse found in a curious cookbook is the river of pain Boone had to swim across to get to this side of The Big Easy. There’s a secret behind the ingredients, though—one that might reveal the trust and love that have been missing from Boone’s life.

Story Review:

I am not going to spend a lot of time on the story review. Teresa reviewed the eBook when it first came out. I agree with most of what she said.

This listen was my second time through this book. Like many of Calmes’ other novellas, Just Desserts is a great comfort read. You fall in love with the characters quickly, but it doesn’t take terribly long to read. You can feel the love between the main characters.

Narration Review:

The first time I heard a Greg Tremblay narrated title, I didn’t enjoy it much. However, since that time he has become one of my favorite narrators. He does a fabulous job narrating, especially first person narratives. Tremblay brings the story to life with every word and inflection.
