Publisher's Summary

For the past year, talented chef Millie has been consumed with running her new catering business with her sisters, Dru and Tasha. It isn't until Jackson walks through their door that she realizes something may be missing in the recipe of her life.

For the past year, Jackson has been dealing with the fallout of his wife's abandonment. He's had to learn how to be a single father to their eight-year-old daughter, and will do anything to fill the void her mother left. It isn't until he commissions Millie for his daughter's birthday party that he realizes he's forgotten that he's not only a father, but a man.

They both think they're content in their lives, but sometimes the right amount of spice can turn an okay dish into a magnificent one. A Pinch of Salt may be all that's needed to bring Millie and Jackson the flavor they've been missing.

Dull

The story was all right, but I disliked the narrator. She didn't differentiate the voices, so I kept losing who was talking.

Slow burn with light angst!

Millie and Jackson are completely adorable. I fell super quickly for Jackson and his daughter Kayla. This is one of those audiobooks that just generally makes you feel good. It makes you smile sweetly and fall in love a bit yourself. I loved the narrator, Melanie Ewbank. She has a wonderful voice for the slow burn with light angst. This audiobook is perfect for a light, summer read that will quickly capture your heart.

Charming romance with all the feels

I had the opportunity to listen to A Pinch of Salt by Bethany Lopez, the first book in her Three Sisters Catering about sisters, Millie, Dru and Tasha. Narrated by Melanie Ewbank, this is Millie and Jackson’s story and it was sweet romance with a bit of angst.

Millie has been content running her business with her sisters and then one day Jackson walks into her life. Millie was sweet and caring and when Jackson came into her business asking for help, she was ready to help him. Jackson and his daughter, Kayla, have been dealing with the result of his wife leaving. He has been taking care of his daughter and ensuring she is okay. But when he meets Millie, he realizes what he has been missing.

A Pinch of Salt by Bethany Lopez was a sweet and charming romance with a bit of drama and angst. Jackson and Millie have great chemistry but have some obstacles to face during the course of their relationship as well.

Happy listening!

A Great Recipe for a Satisfying HEA

I totally loved this journey for Millie and Jackson. Ms. Lopez does an excellent job of creating the close-knit bond of Millie and her sisters. Thinking that her life is the catering business that she runs with her sister, Millie is thrown by her attraction to single dad, Jackson. Their chemistry is immediate but their relationship is not without detours on the way to their HEA.
Jackson contends with his wife's abandonment and the effects it has on his young daughter, Kayla. Ms. Lopez hits all the requirements for a satisfying story: couple chemistry, a bit of angst, humor, sexy banter, and love—both romantic and familial. I love that she gives a glimpse of what is to come for the three sisters and I cannot wait to read Tasha and Dru's stories

Recommended

Such a sweet story and apart from one or two 'sexy' scenes, a clean one. I loved Jackson & Millie. They are perfect for one another. Caring, hard working, just good all around people with clear priorities and goals.

I look forward to hearing more Millies sisters and the others in their small group of friends.

Melanie Ewbank did a great job narrating an DC portraying God characters. The emotions throughout were clearly demonstrated.

I recieved a free Audible copy of this story, at my request, in exchange for a honest review.

Sweet Romance

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This book was exactly what I needed. I have been in a book hangover from a series I was reading and this brought me out of it. I loved Millie and Jackson. The story was so sweet. I cannot wait to read the next book. The narrator was enjoyable too!

Story: 5 Stars

I absolutely adored Jackson and Millie! Their slow burn was perfect and I loved their romance. A Pinch of Salt was an enjoyable story and I definitely plan on reading/listening to the next two.

I wasn't a fan of the narrator, Melanie Ewbank. She didn't differentiate between the character voices, making it really hard to keep track of who was speaking. I think the story would have benefited a lot more from either having a narrator that is able to differentiate characters for the listener, or a male narrator for Jackson.

Lovely and full of spice!

Sometimes you just need a light romance, and this one definitely delivers a sweet and fun romance.

I have sisters and totally related to the sister-bonding/relationships and enjoyed that part of the story immensely.

It was fun to see the story unfold between Jackson and Millie.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Loved the scene in the classroom

There were many things to like about this listen, especially the scene in the classroom. That was easily one of the most romantic passages I have ever listened to.

Millie and Jackson are a cute, mostly angst-free couple. They have a few things to figure out but their story does not get lost in the tall weeds. Thank you, Bethany Lopez, for writing such a sweet, non-over-the-top, it-could-totally-happen story!!!

I liked the narrator although there were a few times that I did not immediately know if Millie or Jackson was talking. It didn't happen enough to be annoying but it did happen a few times to be noticeable.

The story had a very fun and innovative HEA and that just added to the special.
