Reservations For Two by Hillary Manton Lodge

About the Book:

A culinary concoction of taking chances and finding love in the most delectable places 
Food writer-turned-restaurateur Juliette D’Alisa has more than enough on her plate. While her trip to Provence might have unlocked new answers to her grandmother’s past, it’s also provided new complications in the form of Neil McLaren, the man she can’t give up.

Juliette and Neil find romance simple as they travel through Provence and Tuscany together, but life back home presents a different set of challenges. Juliette has a restaurant to open, a mother combating serious illness, and a family legacy of secrets to untangle – how does Neil, living so far away in Memphis, fit into to her life?

As she confronts an uncertain future, Juliette can’t help but wish that life could be as straightforward as her chocolate chip cookie recipe. Can her French grandmother’s letters from the 1940’s provide wisdom to guide her present? Or will every new insight create a fresh batch of mysteries?

My Thoughts:

May I just say, I adore this author and her work!  Hillary is among my favorite "must read" storycrafters, and her newest series is simply delicious reading.  "Reservations For Two" is a second serving of delightful reading and intriguing recipes.

Both literary fans and foodies will adore this book.  Juliette is on a mission to uncover the truth about her family legacy.  Armed with only a photo and a hunch, she travels overseas to visit her roots and to find the truth.

Neil is her enthusiastic travel companion, and he wants to be in her life permanently.  He's passionate, engaging and loyal, and he loves Juliette with his entire heart.

Kind of.

What can you do when your life is on one coast and hers is thousands of miles away?  Can a long-distance relationship sustain love?  And will Juliette's new dream of co-owning a restaurant with her family come to fruition?

Hillary is a master storyteller and an iron chef.  Her recipes will have your mouth watering, and her prose will have your eyes tearing.  She writes with passion, emotion, and intrigue at her fingertips, and infuses her stories with life and love and faith.

I'm so thrilled with both "A Table By The Window" and the follow up novel "Reservations For Two".  This new book deepens the mystery surrounding Juliette's family history, tightens the bonds of her family tree, and explores how one can be in love....yet still be searching for that one undeniable feeling that trumps all others.

Don't miss this new and fresh series by Hillary Manton Lodge.  Highly recommended!

Happy Reading!
