There are 4 novellas in this one book. Each novella is around 80-90 pages and is centered around four different women. This is a contemporary Christian Inspiration novel, so be warned if you are not interested in reading about God, prayers, and people establishing a firmer relationship with God. But also know that this is not a preachy book that is heavy with sermons. It is four light, inspiring, romantic stories that can't help but make your heart warm and your stomach growl!

This was an anthology that had 4 short stories - four contemporary romances are strengthened by the same lasting ingredient per the title - which was the Lord.

All 4 women fell in love with their Mr. Right after sharing an apron that said Kiss the Cook on it.

Very, very light and fluffy reading. 4 novellas in one, which might have accounted for the lack of development of the characters that I somewhat felt. Some of the stories were better written than others; all had a certain element of predictability but the better written ones also had a certain charm that made the stories a little more than tolerable. Overall, it wasn't thought provoking and had very little depth. It meant well but probably not well enough to leave an impression.
Four women meet at a restaurant convention and one buys a "Kiss the Cook" apron. Each gets to wear it like the jeans in the Sisters of the Traveling Pants. As each one finds the love of their life and a stronger faith in God the apron is sent to the next friend until the last one's man crosses out the word cook and writes in bride. Cute short stories.
Very light reading. Good stories, but not something that you can't put down. I read it little by little before bed. One good thing is the good recipes that go with each story, the sweet potato pie I made right away, delicious!
