Table For Two  by Sheryl C.S. Johnson

I loved this LDS values based romance! LDS member, Jana Barrowman accepts a job offer from non-LDS, celebrity chef, Alex Steadman. The creative consultant job transplants Jana from Salt Lake City, UT to Seattle, WA. Jana works to renovate an old house and transform it into the dream boutique of Alex's deceased wife, Vanessa. Jana begins to love Alex and his young daughter, Elise. Jana is steadfast to her goals and is set on finding an LDS man to marry in an LDS Temple. Her stubbornness escalates as she realizes that she does not want to share Alex with Vanessa. The bulk of the story centers around Jana's other marriage prospects and Alex's attempts to persuade Jana that he is the right man.

I loved the good morals expressed in the book and the gospel principles that were taught. I was caught up in the restaurant and celebrity moments of the story. Sheryl developed some great characters. I was rooting for Alex to win Jana over! I was pulled into the story and couldn't wait to pick up the book again whenever I had a few minutes to read. I was disappointed when the story was over because I wanted more!
