After several days in New York City, I came home and fell into a rom com daze of Netgalley ebooks. Here are two that I've just read.
My goodreads review:
Spices mixed and grown by spice master Garrance are used by chef Kate Jenkins when she opens her new bistro in Paris. There is a hint of magic in the way that Kate is transported to other romantic places when she tastes Garrance's spices.
I loved the use of flavors from around the world to create exotic dishes in this Paris bistro. The magic of taste and scents permeates the novel, a love story to cuisines and spices from around the world.
The slow romance that develops between Kate and master chef Charles also adds its own magic to the setting and story.
Meeting and falling in love with a stranger in Las Vegas during a book convention, falling for another audiobook narrator whom she texts but doesn't meet face to face, possibly finding a happy ever after ending in spite of her reservations,
The plot is clever and full of not so surprising surprises, the characters engaging. I enjoyed the book's twists and turns quite a bit.
I have to work on my basement during this cold spell, clearing it out to use as a workable den! Good thing I gave away so many of the books already to make spece for other things!
