Maybe my love of cooking or the fact I have walked on the River Walk in San Antonio initially drew me to this story, but the characters and plot kept me reading. Adela Romero and her daughter live in Los Angeles where Adela hosts a cooking show. But when the pair travel back to San Antonio with Adela’s mother-in-law, the pair finds their lives need to change.

Between Socorro (the mother-in-law), Sandra (niece/cousin/manager of Romeros (the family restaurant that is struggling), a food critic, a food truck owner, a meddling grandmother, an aggressive Hollywood agent, and more this story kept me interested. I loved the realistic family dynamics, the food, and the love of family that shines through the pages of this book.

So if you enjoy stories revolving around family and food, check out this book for yourself.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, but this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

Miralee Farrell and Kimberly Rose Johnson have written an intriguing and compelling tale set in the San Antonio, Texas, region. Although I wasn't born in Texas, I consider myself a true Texas girl through and through; thus the setting of the narrative had already drawn me in before I even started reading it. But I would have been entranced by it even if Texas hadn't been the setting.

These two writers, each excellent in their own right, were able to combine their two voices in a unique and original way. The Romero women—Adela, the primary character; Fabiola “Fabi”, Adela's daughter; Sandra, her cousin; and Adela’s mother—made up the majority of the narrative. Farrell wrote about how they each negotiated all the changes in their family and the family business. Johnson’s focus was on Sandra, Adela’s cousin. You would never know the story was written by different authors because of how well it flows. A truly amazing and remarkable feat.

Even though I hadn't personally shared some of the experiences the Romero women did, I greatly identified with Adela's sorrow and guilt about not being available for her daughter due to work obligations. Sadly, I am also aware that many other people share my feelings, too.

Finding Love in San Antonio is a terrific book for the beach, a night at home, or anytime! It's an entertaining storyline with a sound faith message and lots of culinary allusions that will make you ravenous!

I received a review copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. All opinions are my own, and I am voluntarily leaving this review.
