**A Wattpad Featured Story ** Lucy McLean's confidence is shattered when she arrives back in her tiny hometown to help her parents out with their failing restaurant. She's been dumped / fired by her fiancé / boss and is desperate to get back to Toronto and win him back. But she has more than a broken heart to contend with. Hothead celebrity chef Quinn Allen's in town and the family diner is taking part in his national restaurant TV contest. Looking more like a bouncer than a chef, handsome Quinn's got the local gals in a tizzy. Distracted and distraught, Lucy slowly embraces the contest and gets back on her feet, charmed by the attentions of the famous chef. Being together would mean professional disgrace for him, and losing the restaurant for her. So they agree: it's cold showers and friendship during the hottest summer on Nova Scotia record. Will they keep to their pact, or give in to a taste?

Interesting prologue. I'm curious to see how it ties in to the rest of the piece.
I had a feeling something bad was about to happen.  Only danger an adult can sense.  I hope she is okay.

I think the first person thought process was a really neat angle, rather telling describing what happened if you were a bystander, I enjoyed how it was the thoughts running through the MC's head.

I read that as "I'm in a forest of elephant ears on a perfume summer day." Lmao

I think she'll go to the hospital right away in this chapter book when she'll start to not breathe in her lungs.
