Review: While Love Stirs by:Lorna Seilstad
About the Book:
After graduating from Fannie Farmer's School of Cookery in 1910, Charlotte Gregory is ready to stir things up. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to travel, lecture, and give cooking demonstrations on the very latest kitchen revolution--the gas stove--and certainly doesn't mind that the gas company has hired the handsome Lewis Mathis to perform at her lectures. Lewis encourages her work, especially her crusade to introduce fresh, appetizing, nutritious food to those convalescing in hospitals. But young hospital superintendent Dr. Joel Brooks is not convinced any changes should be made--especially by this outspoken young woman.
When Charlotte and Joel are coerced into planning a fund-raising gala for the hospital, will this combustible pair explode?
Fan favorite Lorna Seilstad is back with a breezy, lighthearted love triangle that will keep readers guessing. Attention to historic detail adorns the timeless story of a young woman looking for true love and making her way in a rapidly changing world.

Charlotte Gregory's dream has always been to own a restaurant of her own. But it seems, she will have a hard time with that dream coming to fruition. From filthy hotel chefs to incompetent doctors, she certainly has her work cut out for her. She is all about cooking and latest kitchen gadgets. She is on a mission and has absolutely no plans of sitting it out now.
Joel Brooks, on the other hand is a force to be reckoned with. He doesn't seem to care for Charlotte much or her fiery personality. And he definitely doesn't want to give an inch on changing anything for his patients. But that doesn't change the fact that Joel and Charlotte have to set aside their differences to come together and plan a fundraiser for the hospital.
While Love Stirs is the second in, The Gregory Sisters series. And the characters are just as sassy and full of life as the first in the series, When Love Calls. The author is on to something in this series that breathes new life into something different, that I'm not use to seeing. While there are other characters involved in the storyline, I only touched on the two main characters.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Revell.
