For TV chef Adela Romero, the lights of LA have lost their luster. The grief of her husband’s death three years ago still hangs heavy over her and her daughter, Fabi.

When Adela returns to San Antonio for a summer break with her daughter, she learns her mother-in-law's Mexican diner is struggling. Adela wants to help, but her career is tugging her in another direction.

Local food critic David Agraponte has a history with Adela. A history he’d like to rekindle. When he interviews Adela, sparks fly—both good and bad. In Adela’s struggle to put her past behind her, she’s tentative about a new relationship, but David hopes she’ll stay at Romero’s long enough to give him a chance.

Sandra always dreamed of managing Romero’s one day, but her chances of proving herself to her aunt are slim with her famous TV-chef cousin taking all the attention. Can’t her aunt see that Adela’s just passing through on her way to her next big gig? Still, as much as she resents it, Sandra may need Adela’s help if there is going to be a Romero’s left for her to manage.

When Adela gets a TV offer that’s sure to shoot her career to the stars, her choice may hold more than just her future in the balance. Can David and Adela find a way to save Romero’s and hold onto their own dreams, or will Adela’s opportunity push them apart?

I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

While primarily David and Adela’s story, Finding Love in San Antonio tells of the Romero family women finding their place after the death of Adela’s husband.

Adela had been so focused on her career as a celebrity chef that she constantly fought for time to spend with her daughter – and lost. Her mother-in-law was struggling with running a restaurant she no longer loved. Her niece desired to manage the restaurant and resented being overlooked. And Fabi, Adela’s daughter, longed to be significant enough in her mom’s life to be noticed.

This is a sweet story. I enjoyed the interactions and conflict between the women and seeing how they overcame them.

Readers who enjoy Hallmark-style stories will want to read Finding Love in San Antonio.
