Food For Thought 1st Course


Emma Cravens four single friends join her at the table in their quest to find love, self-respect, and, above all, great food. Emma and Murrys Grill chef Gary Parker have much in common. He loves to cook, she loves to eat a match made in heaven. Or so Emma thinks at the onset until trouble arrives. Garys former girlfriend comes back on the scene, reed thin and confident, and wanting him back. Garys rejection shakes Emmas belief in herself, making her question what she has to offer in a relationship. Determined not to become a bitter and disillusioned harpy like her boss's wife, Emma decides to get over Gary and move on with her life. But that's easier said than done, especially since every new man she meets and every bite of food she eats reminds her how much she misses the handsome, charismatic chef.


Food For Thought 2nd Course


Emma Craven's excitement over marrying a chef is dimmed when her fianca, Gary Parker, decides to open up a new restaurant. Against her better judgement, Emma soon finds herself the manager of The Green Spruce Grill. Her grades for her teaching-degree courses plummet. Her wedding plans are fraught with complications. And she now finds herself trying to please her family, friends, and Gary all the while putting her own desires on the back burner. Making matters worse, Gary's family shuns her, no matter what she does to try and win them over. Her dreams are slowly fading away, and she feels powerless to stop it. Desperate to halt the avalanche her life has become, she struggles to stand up for what she really wants. But her journey of self-discovery is more like an obstacle course and if she can't find the courage to stay true to herself, Emma risks losing not only the man she loves, but her self-respect and everything important to her as well.
