This is an auction for THE LOST RECIPE FOR HAPPINESS by Barbara O'Neal.

"Elena Alvarez was involved in a horrific car accident as a teenager outside of Santa Fe. The sole survivor, she threw herself into her work and is now a successful chef. She has just been fired from her job when Julian Linswood, horror movie director and restaurant owner, asks her to take over the restaurant he has just bought in Aspen. Bringing everything together for the grand opening is an uphill battle against the deposed chef, who tries to turn the kitchen staff against her, and Elena’s own growing attraction to Julian, and his attraction to her. The ghosts, both literally and figuratively, of the accident also get in the way. Elena must bury the past and put her ghosts to rest to achieve success, happiness, and peace in the new restaurant and her own life. Foodies will love Elena’s lavish menu creations and the Southwestern-themed recipes scattered throughout the book."
- Booklist (US) review:

"FIVE STARS!!! Barbara O'Neal tells this story with unmistakable authenticity. The colourful details of the Colorado and New Mexico Southwest flavour the book as fully as the recipes she's included. I this book highly. It's big and lusty and delicious, and well worth taking a day away from real life to spend in the world Barbara has created."
