December’s title is: The Coincidence of Coconut Cake
By Amy Reichert
On the day Chef Lou Johnson catches her fiance in a compromising position with an intern, British food critic Al pays a visit to her Milwaukee restaurant and writes a scathing review, which runs on the day the two meet at a local pub.
Set in the lovely, quirky heart of Wisconsin, The Coincidence of Coconut Cake is a charming love story of misunderstandings, mistaken identity, and the power of food to bring two people together.
