A Knight to the Rescue!

Sir Joel Peterman-Blair
A modern day, prominent chef who also happens to be knighted 
for his service in third world countries.

What is a Knight today?

A person who has provided a great service or done something 
recognizable in Great Britain

Here's the blurb to the book:

Starli Cameron gave up her career plans to be a concert pianist to marry the man of her dreams. He turned out to be a nightmare. When he dies in a car accident, Starli takes the insurance money and builds a successful and upscale restaurant: Apple Blossoms in rural West Virginia.  Threats from someone determined to ruin her life and the suspicious romantic advances from her new chef force Starli to search her heart and finally turn to God for real healing.

Sir Joel Peterman-Blair, top notch chef from England, is roped by his uncle, into filling in as head Chef at Apple Blossoms. Joel, with his sanguine-personality, has always laughed and flirted his way through life. But now, confronted with and attracted to the most beautiful woman he’s ever met, Joel has to prove his sincerity and depth of character to his icy-cold employer. Can his love for God and for this woman reach out far enough to rescue her from her own mistrust and bitterness? Will he learn that life is not all play? 

And can they both work together to find the source of threats that seem to be coming from Starli’s past? 

Though I've given Joel a sanguine personality, he has an important person on his side: God!
Joel might have flirted, joked and laughed his way through life up till now--
but he's serious about serving God.
And now, he's met Starli, someone who needs rescued
--or at least given encouragement to trust God--and him.

He has a natural caring attitude, concerned for the well-being of his friends and others.
Realizing Starli's deep need to learn to trust--again--Joel sets out to help her achieve that.

He has a lot of work ahead of him to accomplish that.
What Starli sees is another untrustworthy man--the same as her deceased husband had been.
What she sees is another man who seems to be carefree when it comes to the heart issues.

But Joel is determined.
The question remains . . .
Will he succeed?

Knight in Shining Apron coming June 2016
