A Table by the Window by Hillary Manton Lodge

About the Book:

Genre: Contemporary/Women's Fiction

Book 1 of the Two Blue Doors Series

Heirloom recipes, family secrets…and a chance for love

The youngest heir to a French-Italian restaurant dynasty, food writer Juliette D’Alisa has spent her life negotiating her skill with words and her restaurant aspirations. When her brother Nico offers her a chance to open a restaurant together, she feels torn—does she really have what it takes? Should she risk leaving her journalism career?

After the death of her grandmother, Juliette discovers an antique photograph of a man who looks strikingly like her brother. As the truth behind the picture reveals romance and dark secrets, Juliette struggles to keep the mystery away from her nosy family until she can uncover the whole story.

Inspired by her grandmother’s evolving story, Juliette resolves to explore the world of online dating. To her surprise, she finds a kindred spirit in Neil McLaren, a handsome immunologist based in Memphis, Tennessee. With a long-distance relationship simmering, Juliette faces life-shifting decisions. How can she possibly choose between a promising culinary life and Neil, a man a world away in more ways than one? And is it possible her Grandmother’s story can help show the way?

My Review:

4 Stars

Hillary Manton Lodge starts her new three book series with a bang! A Table by the Window was such a fun read and didn't feel like so many of the other books our there. I just loved the tie in with cooking and the recipes found in each chapter. It was almost like a story and cook book all in one. I know at some point I would love to try some of the recipes that came alive while reading the book. I found this to be a great and easy read that kept me turning the pages. I am so looking forward to the rest of this series.

Food, Fun and Romance what more can you ask for in a great book. Looking for a new book to read, don't look any further and grab this great book.
