Simmer and Smoke is a story full of the evocative, powerful influence of food, cooking, love, friendship and family on the human heart…a book full of flavor and substance worth savoring.” Indie Reader
“Peggy Lampman is an engaging writer, capturing the heart of Southern living with wit, charm and vivid detail as she alternates chapters between Shelby, Mallory and Miss Ann. For readers who enjoy a Southern flavor to their stories, spending time in the company of these fine folks through the pages of Simmer and Smoke will go down as easily as a slice of watermelon on a hot summer’s day.” Blue Ink Review
