Joy Ballard is a small town girl that agrees to help her dying father out by taking over his cooking show for him after he passed away. She is an awesome host that everyone loves, but she is hiding a big secret...She can't even boil water. Dining with Joy follows Joy through some big changes in her personal and professional life as she figures out who SHE wants to be, not who her father, producer, mother, or boyfriend want her to be.
Dining with Joy is a fun, easy read that kept me up until midnight last night to finish. Even though Joy brings on her problems herself by the lies she has told, you still want to pull for her and hate to see her hurting. I thought this book was well written and enjoyable to read. I think it would make a cute movie and would love to see a sequel written to keep up with her and her family.
