Stacey Ballis, "Recipe for Disaster"
The Book Cellar, Thursday, April 9 at 7pm
Book Cellar favorite Stacey Ballis discusses her newest novel, Recipe for Disaster, with New York Time's Bestselling author Jen Lancaster (Twisted Sisters).

Recipe for Disaster:

To an outside observer, Anneke Stroudt is a mess- her shirts are stained, her fingernails stubby, her language colorful. But, despite her flaws, Anneke's life is close to perfect. She has a beautiful historic house to restore and a loving fiance who cooks like a dream. Until Anneke's charmed existence falls apart when she loses both her job and her future husband in one terrible day. In need of a new start, she packs up her disgruntled schnauzer and moved into her half-finished home, where she throws her pent-up frustration- and what little savings she has- into finishing the renovation. But at the first step into the house's overhaul, Anneke is sidetracked when she discovers a mysterious leather-bound book, long hidden away, filled with tempting recipes and steamy secrets from Emma Ditmore-Smythe, the cook for the house's original owners. Slowly, with the help of some delicious food and Emma's life lessons, Anneke begins to realize that, just like a flawless recipe, she's been waiting for the right ingredients to cook up a perfect life all along...
