Hello Readers,

Thanks for coming to Lucky Harbor. I'm sure your presence has already been noted by Lucille and the rest of her blue-hair posse and will shortly be posted on their Facebook page. Hope you don't have toilet paper stuck to your shoe.

Or any secrets...

In these pages are recipes on how to catch a man, how to cope with sisters, and bunches of wisdom. Whoops, sorry

I am not sure if I am the right target for this cookbook since I haven't read the Lucky Harbor series and I am an indifferent cook. However, I often try recipes from Epicurious, All-Recipes, and Food&Wine magazine all the time and a recipe is a recipe.

The recipes here are for regular home-made items like casserole, salads, muffins, pies, etc. My biggest problem was that there was no indications of serving size. Some looked like they would serve 5, some looked like they would serve 8-10, but

An electronic freebie available on Kindle and probably Nook, too.
I did the Honey Bun Muffins this morning. Yum. I did leave out the egg (by accident) and they were still a keeper. Probably won't use the egg in making it.
The other recipes look like ones you would find in neighborhood/school/club fundraiser, and I say that with love and affection. Some of my favorite recipes come from those books.
Anyway, well worth the cost of admission for the muffin recipe.

In these pages are recipes on how to catch a man, how to cope with sisters, and bunches of wisdom. Whoops, sorry. Wrong book. (See either Simply Irresistible, The Sweetest Thing, or Head Over Heels).

What a fun way to experience Lucky Harbor! My favorite things in life are cooking and reading. This out a smile on my face!
Kobo free download 11/2/11.

About 20 recipes and a preview of Christmas in Lucky Harbor: Simply Irresistible/The Sweetest Thing and Head Over Heels.

Recipes look OK, but take up about 40 pages with the rest of this ebook being previews. It was free on Kobo and Kindle. I notice Kobo is now charging $0.99. Not sure if I would pay for this.

Some of these recipes look really yummy! I can't wait to try them out.

I think this is a great idea! The books have so much food in them (especially #2 with all it's cutely named stuff). And Lucky Harbor feels like a real place to me, and with a lot of B&B's there are recipe books you can take home (and then rarely use, lol), so why wouldn't there be one here. Great Idea for a contribution to the series!

I won't be reading this becuase it's not really my thing (I tend to cook without a guide --- and that tends to not work out. But whatever, I can't change who I

I love the idea of this free read!

There's about 20 or so recipes that are mentioned in the Lucky Harbor series. If you've read The Sweetest Thing, then you know Tara is a cook. You get all the recipes and more in this fun, little read.

Super sweet, just like some of the desserts in here!
This is a short book with about 20 recipes. There was only one that I thought I would try - You're My honey bun muffins. What I did like were the quotes between each one. Not sure where the title comes from because it's not much to make my kitchen heat up (at least the way I thought she was referring to). This was a free kindle download and really short so just average.
This was a companion book to The Sweetest Thing - book 2 in the Lucky Harbor series. It's only sold as an ebook. Since I enjoyed the first two books in the series I purchased it. All it is are recipes mentioned in the book. I thought it would at least have some dialog or have a storyline. I was greatly disappointed that it was only a cookbook.

Book full of humor and fun? Yes

Awesome recipes? No

It was ok, nothing more nothing less. I didn't really need new recipes for muffins, waffles, crepes, brownies or fried chicken. Then again, I didn't read the Lucky Harbor series so maybe that's why i'm not so interested.

I'll still try them but i belive in my mom's good old recipes!
Very nice to have if you are reading the lucky harbor series!
I am not much of a cookbook reader but I throughly enjoyed!
I usually just wing it with my meals & my dinners come out great, with me trying new seasonings or other "crazy" (my family's term) things with dinner! It's never boring in our house!

Cute cookbook full of Tara's notes and recipes. I FREAKIN' LOVE the Lucky Harbor Series!!

What I liked best about this was all the recipes. As I read the first 2 books I would find my mouth watering with all the dishes they talked about. I can't wait to try a bunch of these out!
Love the recipes & the little sayings between the recipes. It makes the characters a little more real. I can't wait to try some the things & will be thinking of the story too.

Recommends it for: Anyone looking for easy, yummy recipes.
Very easy Recipes from Lucky Harbor. Kindle ebook @ $.99 cents.

I've tried three of the breakfast recipes and they were easy, quick, and yummy!
Like the sayings in between each recipe but it would be nice if it was easier to get to each recipe without having to know what page it's on.

Lucky Harbor is by far the best series I've read. A little romance, a little humor, great read to keep you interested.
A fun little book that accompanies book #2 and is filled with yummy (and very low fat - cough cough) stuff.

A great little cook book.... some of the comments made me laugh. It made me feel like I was in Lucky Harbour!

"...and in the cooking of these recipes..." How about? "...and in cooking these recipes..."
a short cook booklet with some decent recipes,but nothing to wrte home about for me
Several good recipes and a delicious (pun intended) preview of Head Over Heels.

Just what I needed for the school holidays! Plenty of family friendly recipes!!
Recipes from the Lucky Harbor kitchen. I'm a sucker for anything from Lucky Harbor...
Great recipes from the Lucky Harbor series.
I really want to try some of these recipes!
