Holy Guacamole Book Review
SUMMARY: Nestled along San Diego's coast, the former romantic getaway of the silver screen's most notorious lovers is now the sizzling hacienda of Bonnie Miller's culinary boot camp. "If you are what you eat, make it hot, spicy, and irresistible," is her motto, and this queen of Southwestern cuisine enjoys quite a savory life: success, fame, and a reputation for the finest palate west of Barcelona. That is, until a pot-rattling bang causes Trace Domingo, a washed-up sports writer, to crash into her life. His arrival turns up the heat at the culinary boot camp as Bonnie discovers in life's recipe book, it is not the spices which add the most flavor, but how truly hungry you are.
REVIEW: This book was not as enjoyable as I thought it would/should be. It was difficult to follow along at times. Some of the events that happened seems way out there. The time line was also hard to follow. Even though Bonnie says "it is not the spices which add the most flavor, but how truly hungry you are," I wondered how she knew this because she was a self-proclaimed food snob. Even when she was really hungry during some events that happened in Mexico, she still turned her nose up at the food that was offered. Trace and a few other characters did add some spice to the book with their outlook on life but I felt the book was still lacking.

Dan and Denise Harmer enjoy living in Southern California's "Avocado Capital of the World" where they maintain a laid-back lifestyle as they run a cabinet shop, raise four children, and tend a small ranch. Okay, maybe it does get a little hectic. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book go to support the ministry of Outside the Bowl.
