With one sister in culinary class, another sister who loves baking cupcakes, and a whole family who enjoys cooking, I was very excited to see a book that was not only a story, but a collection of recipes as well! I just had to try it! And I was not disappointed!
Juliette D’Alisa has spent the last few years of her life fleeing the restaurant business by being a successful food writer. But when her brother, Nico, offers her a job as his partner in a new restaurant, she is torn. Does she want back in?
Meanwhile, a lonely Juliette meets a young doctor online and begins an unlikely friendship. And when she finds a picture in grandmother’s belongings, that looks nothing like her grandfather, Juliette is thrust into a family mystery that goes back to WWII.
What I Liked
The book was a well written, relaxable read. By that I mean, there was no gun rights, no life or death scenes. It was a “read before bed” book. I also loved the bantering between the Italian siblings. Reminds me of my family.
And the smattering of recipes mixed in were wonderful!
What I Didn’t Like
It leaves you hanging for the next one!
