Love à la Mode Reviews
I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Ms. Strohm has done it again. Her fluffy romances always grab at heartstrings, with an underlying layer of the power of friendship.
This is the story of Rosie. Shy Rosie is the middle child (and only girl!) in her loud, rambunctious family. She takes great pride in her baking, and it is where she finds her strength and confidence. Rosie is going to Paris to study cooking--though she is a baker through and through--and learn more ab ...more
Super cute - if you're a foodie and/or a fan of Food Network shows and/or a fan of Anna and the French Kiss, this one is for you.

Paris is a city associated with lights, love, and culinary delights. Henry and Rosie were both making their way there to join an elite high school culinary program, which was an important stepping stone for them both. For Rosie, it was a way for her to discover the world outside of her small town. For Henry, it was a way for him to prove to his mother, that he had the talent and the ability to succeed in the culinary world. But, would there also be room them to find love?

I received an ARC of this book during the Texas Library Association Annual Conference. I really enjoyed this book, the premise is cute and the drama isn't so much that it overwhelms the other parts of the book. I was pleasantly surprised to find that neither Rosie nor Henry were relegated to the role of besotted teen angst. Although I did find myself crying at one point.
A line I particularly liked in this book came at the end, and I'm paraphrasing, but it was basically,(view spoiler)[two people ...more
First and most important: If you plan on reading this cute and fun contemporary novel based at a school for chefs in Paris, be prepared to be hungry. For anything from mashed potatoes, to bread to decadent desserts.
Love à la Mode was a fun and cute read. I am no chef, in fact I'm pretty sure my knife skills are a billion times worse than Rosie, but I do know a lot of the terms thanks to Food Network. I definitely had to look up a bunch of the dishes and then have my mouth water. I've been go Par ...more
*I received an e-ARC of this book from the publisher for an honest review - thank you so much, but it didn't affect my review at all. My love of Stephanie Kate Strohm books probably did, though.*
This book is everything that is amazing about contemporary: fluffy, fun, funnies, and cuteness. And then add some cooking and baking??? If you love cooking and baking, this has some of the best food descriptions that I've ever read and all foodies will forever rejoice.
Henry and Rosie were great main char ...more
Love à la Mode is just so darn stinking cute. It is one of those books that constantly hits you with moments that will make your heart melt like the ice cream on the front cover. There's just enough angst and drama, to make the whole thing sweeter.

As soon as I saw Love a la Mode, I was here for it. Two teens falling in love at cooking school in Paris? YES, PLEASE. I’m happy to say this one didn’t disappoint!
I’ve been describing this as a more diverse, less problematic version of Anna and the French Kiss, but with endless delicious food descriptions. Basically, ...more
