An aspiring food journalist and a grumpy cameraman take to the California coast for the biggest foodie event of the year in this sweet third novel in Tif Marcelo’s charming and romantic Journey to the Heart series.
Online food blogger Victoria Aquino has spent years doing social media for True North and Paraiso Retreats, and she’s ready to take her blog and writing to the next level. But after she was catfished and suffered a heartbreak, she’s clamoring for change. She auditions for and accepts a food host opportunity: covering the Labor Day holiday BBQ festivals along the California coast. For eight days, she’ll travel with a producer and a camera and sound person, in a vintage - and rickety - RV, and she’ll get her very first byline as a video journalist. The only catch? She can’t stand BBQ.
And the cameraman also auditioned for the job.
Joel Silva is a cameraman with big dreams of his own, and when he finds out that the job he auditioned for went to Victoria - a woman he’d gotten to know covering Paraiso Retreats, and someone he later slept with - he’s understandably furious and curious. Joel knows the BBQ circuit like the back of his hand, and he now has to help Victoria do her job amidst their growing attraction.
When the producer picks up on their push-pull vibe and increases the ante to feature both in front of the camera with the best host taking the next cross-country feature, the two have to decide: Is their blossoming romance something that should be left to fizzle along with BBQ season? Or is it the beginning of something even more delicious?

West Coast Love
West Coast Love by Tif Marcelo
3rd book in the Journey to the Heart series. Contemporary romance. Can be read as a stand-alone.
Victoria and Joel met when Joel was a cameraman at his previous contract. They coincidentally meet in Las Vegas and agree to a one-time encounter. They surprisingly end up working together and in competition on a traveling video blog. As their relationship extends, they have decisions to make.
A charming story of relationship building, misunderstandings and learning to communicate. I liked this couple much better than the second book. They talked and learned. The couples from the previous two books make an appearance at the end and it’s a sweet reunion. Kind of a wrap up.
I admit I did feel sorry for Victoria and Joel sleeping in tents on the ground while traveling fir the blog but that is probably more about my age than their sleeping arrangements.
🎧 Two person narration by Lola James and Gomez Pugh made this easy to follow and enjoy their romance. A couple of their food descriptions made me hungry!

Good but Predictable
Enjoyed the story line but felt it was a little predictable. Performance was only ok, small bit lackluster.
