Rules of the Chef by Nicole Dennis was a sweet tale of two strong willed men who must find common ground to save a southern B & B. Dakota, chef of Southern Charm is in danger of losing his restaurant and home. Samuel Ashford, hotelier, has been sent by his family to evaluate the potential salvaging of the B&B, thus also saving the Southern Charm.

Rules of the Chef was multi-faceted as were the characters. Southern charm met northern attitude gave light to the interaction between Dakota and Samuel. The story appeared to be small novella atmosphere-  Dakota and Samuel, their roller coaster relationship, and the introduction of numerous characters whom I will assume will also get their own books.

Ms. Dennis gave a nice introduction to her new series. I look forward to seeing the direction the author takes the Southern Charm and the interesting characters tied to it.
