A Table by the Window by Hillary Manton Lodge

Heirloom recipes, family secrets…and a chance for love.  How could this book go wrong?

It didn't.

It has been such a long time since I picked up a fictional book that I couldn't put down.  If you love to cook and love to read, my guess is you will enjoy the story of Juliette, her large and opinionated Italian/French family, Neil, and the interesting little side-story of Juliette's Grand-mere.  

Set in Portland, Oregon, Juliette continues her family's restaurant legacy by opening a new restaurant with her brother Nico.  While planning the new eatery, Juliette meets Neil from Tennessee via an online dating service.  The drama of a long-distance relationship threatens to split up this perfect pair, but a trip to France to visit her great aunt makes Juliette realize what her dreams truly are.

Loved how each chapter started with a "food" quote and recipe.  Can't wait to try them!

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Multnomah Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
