Recipe for a Curse (2021) Lissa Kasey (Romancing a Curse)

Recipe for a CurseI downloaded this novella as part of a Winter Wonderland giveaway of holiday short stories and novellas. As the first story I read wasn’t good, I haven’t expected too much from the other stories I’ve read.

Montana works as a chef for a retreat in a small town. Like several others of the employees, he lives at the manor and as it’s the holidays, he is just making food for the staff. When he takes his weekly delivery to the food pantry he notices that Rio–a local recluse and vet–isn’t there. So worried, he decides to take a delivery of food out to his trailer.

This story unfolds slowly, all from Montana’s point-of-view. As a reader of supernatural fantasy, you pick up on what’s happening, however, Montana behaves as any of is might in that situation, assuming Rio’s problem is PTSD combined with some medical issue that leaves him hungry all the time.

It’s extremely well done.

As well done are all the food bits, which I absolutely adored. He’s a chef, but he bakes as a hobby, and all the food sounded delicious and marvelous. Which means I’m really craving sweet rolls now.

I will definitely look for other books by this author.
