“I admit that I read LDS fiction with a grain of salt. I'm not a huge fan of many of the popular authors and I do try to avoid the mindless formulaic romances.
While "How to Stuff a Wild Zucchini" follows the usual romance plot, it does so in a fresh way that proves that even the most worn plots can be given new life. Here is a fish-out-of-water tale of a NYC playwrite who moves to Utah to... write a gardening column. She hasn't been to church in years, never been out west, and doesn't know a thing about gardening.
It's a fun little tale that sparkles enough to keep even the cliches fresh and cute. Heather Horrocks brings to life some thoroughly charming characters who keep the book interesting. The plot is charming and clever, and Horrocks' simple writing is clean and personable.
There's plenty of LDS romance fare out there, but this is just different enough to really stand out. ”
