For Noah Blackwell, being a detective isn’t just a lifestyle, it’s a legacy. So when he’s forced to take mandatory leave and deal with the trauma amnesia keeping him from identifying his shooter, it’s a literal case of adding insult to injury— and now he’s got to deal with an unwanted culinary caregiver on top of it. Never mind that he and Violet shared a steamy, secret kiss last New Year’s Eve. She rejects everything related to the job, and Noah’s not about to be distracted from recovering his memory and getting back to what he does best. No matter how pretty Violet is.
Despite their differences, Violet and Noah share a surprising bond in the kitchen that grows into something neither of them expect. But as Noah heals and their feelings for each other extend from the kitchen to the bedroom, Violet knows she must make an impossible choice. She may wear her heart on her sleeve when it comes to food, but can she risk it all to put love on the line?

Love on the Line was a very cute read and just what I needed to lift my spirits and make me smile on one of our lovely rainy winter weekends here in North Carolina. It had all of my favorite elements... lovable characters with a complicated connection, passion with just a bit of inner turmoil, humor, love and cooking!
Kimberly's warnings to not read this one when you're hungry are spot on. OMG I drooled over all the yummy cooking and was kicking myself for not having anything delicious in the house to snack on while I read. So stock those pantries before you dive into this one. LOL
