Sugar and Salt
by Wiggs, Susan






Arriving in San Francisco to get a fresh start, Margot Salton, a barbecue master from Texas, shares a kitchen with baker Jerome "Sugar" Barnes-the perfect set-up that leads to love until Margot's past comes back to haunt her. 200,000 first printing.





The unexpected death of Margie Salinas' mother left her alone at 16 with no one but Del, her mother's live-in boyfriend. When Del starts to give her uncomfortable looks, Margie flees and is lucky to find refuge with a couple who runs a barbecue restaurant in Texas. Margie, using her mother's recipes, sees a future for herself as a chef until something traumatic occurs. Ten years later, Margie is now Margot Salton and about to open her own barbecue restaurant in San Francisco. Margot's restaurant, Salt, shares a commercial kitchen with Sugar, the bakery next door. Margot soon grows close to Sugar's owner, Ida, and her handsome son, Jerome. Just as her romance with Jerome is heating up, Margot finds that no matter how fast you run, your past will find you. Wiggs (The Lost and Found Bookshop, 2020) writes with compassion and insight on some challenging topics, including abortion, racism, prison reform, and sexual assault. Margot is a fighter, and readers will be rooting for her to succeed; her romance with Jerome is sweet and believable, as is a secondary second-chance romance for Ida. This is another winner from Wiggs. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
