“Pasta Wars” by Elisa Lorello

(Available July 12th)

Blurb: From author Elisa Lorello (Faking It, Ordinary World),  Pasta Wars is about a woman’s journey from living the life she thought she always wanted to the life that actually makes her happy.   Slim, successful and soon to marry the man of her dreams, Katie Cravens is leading the life she always wanted.  As the face and CEO of Pasta Pronto, a “Carbs for the Calorie-Conscience” line of frozen food, Katie chooses to live a life like one of her Slimline Spaghetti dinners—no mess, no surprises, and everything tied up in a neat little package.  But when Katie’s fiancé runs off with another woman and a quality control fiasco sends her customers running for the hills, it’s time for Katie to make a change.

Her company’s salvation presents itself in the form of a partnership opportunity with legendary Ristorante Caramelli of Rome, and Katie has no other choice but to jet off to Italy to convince gorgeous, hotheaded co-owner Luca Caramelli that she’s a worthy partner.  Gaining Luca’s respect proves  harder than Katie could have ever imagined, however, when he insists that she must learn how to cook—and how to eat—true Italian food before he will ever agree to their companies’ partnership.What begins in Italy as a battle of wills between Katie and Luca ignites into a fierce public rivalry that makes it way all the way back to the States with a nationally televised cooking competition.  As Katie tries to channel her inner Mario Batali to win the competition, she must choose between the flavorless prepackaged life that she worked so hard to maintain the mouthwatering uncertainty of a life chock full of carbohydrates and Caramellis.
