A review by Abi
I hesitated. In my hands I held my grandmother's letters. I felt strange removing them from the house without telling Sandrine, but a part of me worried about her response. Without much self-examination, I knew I would smuggle them out of the country under my clothes or behind the suitcase lining if I had to.~Excerpt from Reservations for Two.
I haven’t read the first book in this series, but to tell the truth, I didn't even know I was starting in the middle of a series until the end, because Reservations for Two held its own as a stand-alone. I was immediately drawn in to the story, and not for a moment feel like I missed a thing by not reading the first book.
I love the travel element and the recipes are a nice surprise as well. Boy, did they make me want to go to my kitchen and start trying them. What a great idea!
Jules' growth throughout the story is apparent through her long-distance relationship with Neil. To add to all this yummy recipe-laden, growth and romance is the unexpected intrigue when Jules finds her Grand-Mere's letters from years ago. Jules past and eventual future unfolds and somehow the author makes it all tie together at the end.
I mentioned of Jules' growth earlier, and I want to assure you the character development is well written and believable.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance, travel romance or mystery, because the author did a great job of combining these in Reservations for Two.
