Monster Chef By Margaret Mcheyzer ~ RELEASE BLITZ & FMR REVIEW

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?

Review by: Leeann 

Ok this is a short read about an egotistical chef, Pierre who thinks he is the be all & end all, and a widowed mother, Holly of a 7 year old girl who gets a job in the same restaurant as the egotistical chef.

This is one of those books where things are not always as they seem. Both Pierre and Holly have sad past’s.
There are no outside influences stopping them from being together once they both acknowledge their mutual attraction & things are going well until Pierre realises who Holly deceased husband is, then all his secrets come out & Holly must decide if she wants Pierre in 
her & her daughter’s life.

Although the story is a little bit predictable, there is no way you could read it without feeling empathy towards both the characters in this book. Holly is ballsy & stands up to Pierre when no one else will & this does provide some very funny moments. Holly’s 7 year old daughter is very talkative, blunt & direct. Some of the things that come out of her mouth are hilarious.

Initially Pierre is a hard character to like, but as the book progresses he sort of grown on you. By the end the way his character has developed throughout the book makes him almost a different person.

I did like it at the end when there was an epilogue from Pierre’s POV, Holly’s POV & holly’s daughters POV. It was interesting to see things though all 3 sets of eyes.

All in all it was an enjoyable 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
