Foodie Friday Feature + Giveaway: The Welcome Home Diner by Peggy Lampman

Releasing: October 10, 2017 from Lake Union

Last year, The Promise Kitchen by Peggy Lampman was one of my Foodie Friday features. This year she's back with The Welcome Home Diner.

Goodreads Description: 
Betting on the city of Detroit’s eventual comeback, cousins Addie and Samantha decide to risk it all on an affordable new house and a culinary career that starts with renovating a vintage diner in a depressed area of town. There’s just one little snag in their vision. Angus, a weary, beloved local, is strongly opposed to his neighborhood’s gentrification—and his concerns reflect the suspicion of the community. Shocked by their reception, Addie and Samantha begin to have second thoughts. As the long hours, problematic love interests, and underhanded pressures mount, the two women find themselves increasingly at odds, and soon their problems threaten everything they’ve worked for. If they are going to realize their dreams, Addie and Samantha must focus on rebuilding their relationship. But will the neighborhood open their hearts to welcome them home?

Sounds good, right? Plus, just like The Promise Kitchen, this novel ends with a handful of delicious recipes. Want to get your hands on a copy? I'm giving away 2 copies right here! Enter now:

In order for them to bet on Detroit, they must have a very good reason.
