Susan gives an overview of the book:

What happens when a charming, out-of-work actor is hired to wine, dine, and romance an attractive young woman? He falls for her sister! Modern love in Las Vegas takes an unusual spin when Lucy Antonucci tries to set up Danny Alvieri, a smooth and charming out-of-work actor, with her beautiful, spoiled and bored young sister Val. But what Lucy has cooked up for Val begins to whet her own more mature appetites. Adding heat to the stew, the family-owned trattoria is in financial trouble, and the struggle to make ends meet causes sibling rivalries to bubble up hot and savory. If Lucy and Val are going to keep the trattoria -- and their hearts -- intact, this family is going to have to learn to cook together.
