Seeking Sugar and Spice

“The ending is perfect and the story overall was super enjoyable; you’ll find out at the end that it is part of a trilogy—the Chincoteague Sunsets Trilogy, and I can’t wait to read more!” – Rachel Dehning for Reader Views, on Book One, Seeking Tranquility

Will twelve chefs bring fame and fortune to Chincoteague Island and its restaurants, or will one jealous competitor bring infamy to them all?  

Holly Peterson, owner of the Sand and Sugar Café, is insecure about her abilities in the kitchen. Lorenzo D’Angelo feels unprepared to open his own restaurant, Speziato, on Chincoteague Island. Just as Holly and Lorenzo begin to have confidence in their eateries and themselves, celebrity chef, Gideon Randall, announces his new cooking reality show will take place on the island.  

Neighbor vs. Neighbor will be a cooking show like no other, pitting all the chefs on the island against each other in a competition for TV’s top prize in cooking—$300,0000 and a year’s worth of nationwide advertising during all Gideon’s shows. As summer gets underway on Chincoteague, things heat up in the kitchen, at the resort where contestants are sequestered, and in the restaurants they’ve left behind. 

In a recipe that calls for the perfect combination of sugar and spice, sabotage becomes the main ingredient.

I can hardly believe I’m writing these words, but today, my baby graduates from college. Morgan was a force from birth. She entered our lives on a chilly April day just before Easter 2001. With a headful of hair and a loud cry, she made her presence known. Never one to back down or bow…

Jesus Wept

This past Sunday, Catholics around the world heard the story of the Raising of Lazarus proclaimed by their priests or deacons. It’s a wonderful story, and there’s so much commentary out there that it’s easy to get lost in all the different explanations about what’s happening in the story. Besides my own priest’s homily, I…

In Through One Gate, Out Through Another

Walking in Imitation It was a warmer than typical day as we entered the gate. We meandered through the busy city, carefully trodding on uneven stones, snaking our way to the start of our journey. Our walk was slow and somber as we carried our heavy load while wiping our tears. We encountered dozens, perhaps…
