Two amazing chefs. Two very different restaurants. One recipe for love.

Event has passed

The Rockland Public Library presents author KD Fisher, Thursday, April 8, at 6:30 p.m., on Zoom. This event is free and open to all.

Maine-based author KD Fisher will read an excerpt from their queer romance, The Secret Ingredient, set in the fictional Maine town of South Bay. Fisher will also discuss the LGBTQ+ romance genre, the daily life of a romance writer, the joys of happily ever afters for the queer community, and answer questions.

For single mom Adah Campbell, the executive chef job at a posh restaurant in quaint South Bay, Maine is a dream come true—and the perfect opportunity to start over, far away from a home that’s never felt entirely hers. But fitting in has never been easy, and between a new town, a new boss, and the unexpectedly attractive owner of a rival café, things get off to a rocky start.

Never did free-spirited Beth Summers think she’d still be in Maine. Travel the world gathering delicious recipes and finding friends and lovers? Absolutely. Step in to run her family’s small-town café? Not so much. However, once Beth commits to something, that’s it. Soon, The Yellow House is the hottest spot in town, but Beth’s out of energy—and out of ideas for moving forward.

Until Adah Campbell walks into her life. As sparks fly, both chefs have to decide if they are willing to make sacrifices...or if it’s really too many cooks in the kitchen.

KD Fisher is a queer New England-based writer of authentic, heartfelt LGBTQ+ narratives. Fisher grew up all over the United States, bouncing from North Carolina to Hawaii to Illinois, and finally settling in Maine where they spend far too much time at the beach. When Two amazing chefs. Two very different restaurants. Fisher isn’t writing, they can usually be found hiking with their overly enthusiastic dogs, obsessing over plants, or cooking elaborate meals. They love classic country, perfectly ripe tomatoes, and falling asleep in the sun.
