A year after she separated from her husband, Gianni, on Christmas Day, Chloe’s heart is still in pieces as she unpacks the decorations for her first ever festive holiday alone. That is, until the phone rings…
It seems Gianni’s new seaside restaurant is in trouble and Chloe must go to Appledore to save the business – and him. Equally famous for his experimental culinary extravaganzas and his explosive temper, Gianni has been really stirring up a sensation with the locals – and not in a good way!
As pans fly and the temperature in the kitchen rises, Chloe’s calming influence and magic touch might just get critics back on side in time to save the restaurant from sinking like a sad soufflé. But will it be enough to save their marriage?
Chloe came to Appledore in search of her Christmas sparkle, but when the snow clears, will she finally find the way back to her husband’s heart?
So it was fluffy blanket, couch, cup of hot chocolate and a slice of cake and I was ready to get started. Maybe Sue's books should could come with a voucher for your local slimming club, because I always end up stuffing my face while reading them.
(enough about me being a greedy &*^)
The book, the story... yeah yeah yeah.... Love Love Loved it. Again another easy 5* read.
Gianni and Chloe are separated. Chloe is getting ready for a sad and lonely Christmas while Gianni is setting up to open another restaurant. But can the crazy Italian Chef manage it without some help. NO he can't, which is when Chloe gets a phone call to go and help. I have to say here, I loved Gianni, I loved the way his accent was put across and his mispronunciation of words, it adds lots of 'lol' moments to the story. There only seems to be Chloe that can fully understand him. She is needed to step in and recover conversations on numerous occasions. Chloe also seems to be the only person that Gianni listens to at times.
These two made a for a great story. Two of the best characters I have read about in ages. I just loved the two of them.
It was also nice, some of the characters from previous books were also featured. I just can't praise this book enough. I'm a huge fan, all that's left to be said is that you really do need to read it.
