Danika Russo is 55, newly retired from a 30-year career as a mail carrier, and stuck in a rut. After putting her own needs on hold to care for her terminally ill partner and her unloving father, Danika is holed up the childhood home she inherited, a claustrophobic time warp from the 1970s complete with brown Formica and linoleum, and not sure what to do next.
Her best friend Natalie suggests making a list of things she has always wanted to do. Stepping outside her comfort zone, self-deprecating Danika opts for taking an Italian cooking class, not knowing that she will both impress the appreciative chef with her tasting skills and meet a mysterious younger woman there, Finn Gerard, who will capture her heart and teach her the recipe for love. But Finn is withholding a grim secret and, despite her initial passion, appears unable to commit to Danika fully. Will Danika allow herself to let go and fall in love for the first time in her life, even if there are no guarantees? Even if she must learn to let go?
This complex lesbian romance touches on themes of rediscovery and transformation, showing that while love can be the answer, real healing always starts from within.
Lucy Madison’s latest will appeal to fans of fine, well-crafted lesbian fiction and authors like Caren Werlinger. Readers will enjoy a bonus cookbook section at the back, featuring all the recipes mentioned in the book
"Lucy Madison’s contemporary romance novel, A Recipe for Love: A Lesbian Culinary Romance, is a sheer delight to read. I loved watching as Danika exchanges the depression of sitting in that faded kitchen with the puke-green rotary phone hanging on the wall for an entirely different life and lifestyle. Madison’s characters are credible and finely depicted, and her plot is fresh and engaging. And the food! Did I mention the food? The cooking lessons Danika signs up for are a marvel in themselves and the edibles she whips up in her new abode are mouth-watering for sure. Madison’s second chance story is beautifully told, and I enjoyed every moment I spent getting to know Danika, Natalie and Finn. A Recipe for Love: A Lesbian Culinary Romance is most highly recommended. - Reader's Favorite 5-Star Review
"A whirlwind of a book, with characters so vivid you will want to find a book club, STAT!, to talk about all the action that happens over the next 12 months to Danika, Finn, Natalie, Tony and Pete.” -Elaine Mulligan Lynch
“While this is categorized as a lesbian romance, there’s actually a much bigger story going on here, and it was that element that really sucked me in.” Rachel Wells LOTL and Curve Magazine
"Lucy Madison’s A Recipe for Love delivers a sizzling hot love story against a backdrop of luscious food and sexy cooking. Still reeling from the loss of her girlfriend and father, Danika is a woman on the precipice of a new life. And what a life it is, complete with a new home in a breathtaking landscape and meeting the complex and irresistible Finn. – Randi Triant, Author
