Happy Publication Day to One Way or Another!🎉🎉🎊🎊
Thrilled to kick off the blog blitz for this absolutely fun read that made me hungry!😋
One Way or Another by Colleen Coleman
So when the opportunity comes up to work for one of the best chefs in the country – Katie’s idol – she is determined to get the job, no matter what. But then she discovers who she’s competing against: Ben.
As the competition heats up, Katie and Ben spend more and more time together, and it’s clear the old spark is still there… But only one person can win their perfect job, and Katie is going to make sure it’s her. She knows she can’t let Ben back in – or can she find a way to have it all?
A hilarious, heart-warming story about romance, good food, and following your dreams, for fans of Lindsey Kelk, Marian Keyes and Cate Woods.
She spent years teaching English and Philosophy before finally taking a deep breath, scrunching both eyes shut, putting her pen to paper and vowing not to lift it again until she wrote the words ‘the end’. As a result, her first novel, Don’t Stop Me Now was born.
Colleen lives between London, Ireland and Cyprus with her very patient husband and very,very chatty twin daughters.

This was a fun read that made me quite a bit hungry at times…. The book had a little bit of a lot of things I like humor, wonderful characters, food, reality television, did I mention food? This really was the story of Katie finding her way and herself….
Katie has always wanted to be a chef, she went to chef school, and opened her own restaurant… but as I’m sure most of you no the restaurant business is tough…. so when Katie finds it necessary to close her dream restaurant she ends up taking a job at a care facility as a cook… then she sees a casting call for a reality television show called Master Chef…. The winner gets to work with a very famous yet temperamental chef Jean-Michel… now I have never had the desire to be a chef… in fact my idea of cooking is putting something in the microwave and heating it up…. however this Jean-Michel character has only made me realize I’d never want to work in his kitchen… really what a complete jerk!
Katie was an extremely likable and relatable character… flaws and all… yes she was a bit selfish when it came to her father’s needs, but as children even as adult children we all probably are a little bit…. I really loved Katie’s relationship with the elderly Martha… Martha was such a spunky older lady with such fabulous advice we really all need a Martha in our lives…. Alice Katie‘s BFF was also a really likable an interesting character, I wouldn’t mind a book about her…. then we have Ben Katie‘s ex boyfriend who also ended up being her competition in the reality show…. Ben seemed like a nice enough guy, and they had a few moments that were cute… but he did have a girlfriend…. I guess I would’ve maybe liked some of their history? I really didn’t always understand the attraction… but that is my only minor complaint about this book… otherwise it was a pleasure to read… I loved seeing all the growth in Katie throughout this book….
Strongly recommend to anybody who loves fabulous characters, a pleasant plot, and food….
