From ScratcheBook - 2015
A down-home, feel-good debut of Southern romance, From Scratch explores one woman's journey back home to Dallas, Texas, where her family is cooking up a plan that doesn't quite suit her tastes. Thirty-year-old Lillie Turner grew up with maple syrup stuck to her skin and bacon grease splattered on her clothes, courtesy of working in the family diner. Thank goodness she escaped all that when she moved to Chicago five years ago. Now a successful strategy consultant and newly engaged to a man who complements her like biscuits and gravy, she has everything she wants. When an urgent phone call about her father's health pulls Lillie back to Dallas, she soon learns it was a ruse to bring her home so she can run the diner she'd rather avoid and compete in the Upper Crust, an annual baking competition, with no option to withdraw. Lillie is furious and ready to run back to Chicago, but her father's haggard appearance makes her wonder if he’s hiding something.
