Kitchen Promises, the final book in the Riverside Trilogy
3.5 Star Review
Review by Allison East
Kitchen Affairs was good. The story was sweet and romantic. The heroine Molly and her sweet little girl Stella were two great characters. Molly is an intern at a hotel restaurant that Drake runs. Molly is a loving, independent, at times though she can get a little down on herself. Molly fell in love with her high school sweetheart, Liam and got pregnant with Stella. Only to lose Liam to an accident. Molly is determined to be a chef. She took her best friend, Michael, with her daughter to Chicago to go to Culinary School. Molly and Drake fall in love. The story has twists and turns, and kind of ends on a little bit of a cliff, then it goes into the second book Kitchen Scandals

It is a year later, and Molly’s life has changed drastically. She landed her dream job in the kitchen where she interned- working at Riverside. Things with them are still really hot, and after getting through the challenges in their first year, Drake is ready to take the next step- they move in together. What Molly doesn’t know though, Drake has a secret. New threats keep popping up in Molly and Drake’s life together. Someone is after Molly and Drake is trying to keep her safe- but money can’t always buy safety.  Kitchen Scandals lives up to its name, and it was good as well. Then comes the culmination of the series- Kitchen Promises.
The story begins shortly after book 2. Molly's still struggling with her ordeal from Kitchen Scandals
I can’t give too much away, but there is drama as always when it comes to Molly and Drake. There is a lot of suspense as always too. Molly has a decision to make that will affect not only her but everyone she loves. Despite all the crazy going on, Drake and Molly are as hot as ever.

These characters were great and well developed. If you are looking for an interesting series, pick up the trilogy today.
