Monster Chef by Margaret McHeyzer

Title: Monster Chef
Author: Margaret McHeyzer
 Release Date: March 18, 2015


Holly Walker had everything she’d ever dreamed about – a happy marriage and being mum to beautiful brown-eyed Emma - until an accident nineteen months ago tore her world apart. Now she's a widow and single mother to a boisterous little 7-year-old girl, looking for a new start. Ready to take the next step, Holly has found herself a job as a maître d’ at Table One, a once-acclaimed restaurant in the heart of Sydney. But one extremely arrogant Frenchman isn't going to be easy to work with...

Twenty years ago, Pierre LeRoux came to Australia, following the stunning Aussie girl he'd fallen in love with. He and his wife put their personal lives on hold, determined for Pierre to take Sydney's culinary society by storm. Just as his bright star was on the upswing, tragedy claimed the woman he was hopelessly in love with. He had been known as a Master Chef, but since his wife’s death he has become known as Monster Chef. 

Can two broken people rebuild their lives and find happiness once more?


Two lives trying to come to terms with the loss of a loved one, cross paths and sends shockwaves through both their lives. Both deal with their loss in different ways but together they can begin to finally heal.

Pierre is as arrogant and conceited as they come and has a reputation for being a monster in work. Holly does not cower before him and calls him on his arrogant behaviour and gets under his skin. An extremely talented chef, he has been hiding behind his arrogance as his way of coping, which has impacted on his ability to produce the highest quality food. Holly doesn't let him get away with anything and challenges him in more than one way.

Holly is feisty and strong, despite what she has been through. She does have a fear of losing another loved one again and of being hurt, along with her precocious daughter. Pierre gets under her skin and much more as he pushes her to let go of her fears.

I loved this book as we see the characters deal with the loss of someone dear to them. It is a journey for both as they take the first steps to living again. Holly's daughter, Emma, adds something special to the story as she melts Pierre's heart. The food play and the foreplay are hot and compliment the emotional nature of the story.

Author Bio

**Bound by custom or unique by choice.**

There's something about the written word that's pure magic.

Possibly it's the fact that there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering that they're able to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.

Until next time
