Happy Book Birthday, TASTE TEST!

Happy Book Birthday to me!

Courtesty of www.twistedsifter.com

This is such a huge day -- today, I start a new job teaching college, I have an event/reading with some of the greatest authors I know (fellow Luckies Stephanie Kuehn, Ellen Oh, Alex Lidell, and Elisabeth Dahl), and, of course, it's TASTE TEST's release day. I feel happy, loved, and so SO excited!

And if you head on over to www.kellyfiorewrites.com, you can enter to win some pretty sweet swag and a signed copy of the book.


If you can grill it, smoke it, or fry it, Nora Henderson knows all about it. She’s been basting baby back ribs and pulling pork at her father’s barbeque joint since she was tall enough to reach the counter. When she’s accepted to Taste Test, a reality-television teen cooking competition, Nora can’t wait to leave her humble hometown behind, even if it means saying good-bye to her dad and her best friend, Billy. Once she’s on set, run-ins with her high-society roommate and the maddeningly handsome—not to mention talented—son of a famous chef, Christian Van Lorten, mean Nora must work even harder to prove herself. But as mysterious accidents plague the kitchen arena, protecting her heart from one annoyingly charming fellow contestant in particular becomes the least of her concerns. Someone is conducting real-life eliminations, and if Nora doesn’t figure out who, she could be next to get chopped for good.

With romance and intrigue as delectable as the winning recipes included in the story, this debut novel will be devoured by all

Praise for TASTE TEST:

Debut author Fiore persuasively details the constraints of being on this kind of show, from the strict security measures to the way producers try to pump up rivalries to increase ratings... Justice, love, and the best chef prevail…


This debut about a reality show for young chefs has enough spice to keep readers feasting all the way through.Contestants may lose, but readers won’t.


Where can you get TASTE TEST? I'm so glad you asked!

  1. Congrats. Love the cover. Very juicy. Now if I could only get some pub on my novel, Mason Davis and the Rise of the Storm Makers, then I could really celebrate with you. Nonetheless, savor the moment - you earned it!
