Book Spotlight: Where There’s a Whisk by Sarah J. Schmitt

Welcome to book spotlight where instead of giving you another book review, I’m just going to talk about books I’ve read recently that I enjoyed. Prepare yourself for the fangirl gushing.

I’m not the type of person that watches cooking shows. I’ve seen a few here and there while at other people’s houses, but I’ve never sat down to watch any myself. But I still thoroughly enjoyed Where There’s a Whisk by Sarah J. Schmitt, which is about a girl who gets the once-in-a-lifetime chance to be on a cooking competition reality show.

This book is so fun! I loved reading about the ins and outs of the cooking show featured in this book. The different landmark challenges and competitions are so unique (at least to my knowledge base) and all the food descriptions made me hungry while I read. This just might convince me to start watching cooking shows.

Some of the drama is a bit over the top, but it’s supposed to be since the show is also a reality show. But I actually enjoyed the drama. It’s entertaining, and I was eager to know what would happen next. I loved rooting for Peyton as the underdog chef for the show, and I appreciate that the romance isn’t the focus of the story. There is enough there to make any YA fan happy, but it doesn’t overwhelm the story. This book overall has a good balance between fluffy and serious contemporary that I needed.

There are some events that unfold that are unexpected and others that are predictable, but I enjoyed this cute, different kind of YA contemporary story. If you like cooking shows, fun banter, and lots of delicious food descriptions, pick this one up.

~Thank you to the publisher for providing an early digital copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.~
