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?
From the Author: What a wild ride! Between the releases of Simply Sara and A Table by the Window, I shifted genres, signed with a new publisher, and moved five times. Crazy! This was the book I wrote and rewrote over those years, changing it over and over because I wanted so much to get it right. And then I gave it to my publisher...and rewrote it all over again. Some books are like that, and I'm so glad for the time to explore the characters, settings, and cuisine that made this novel special.
As as much as I love the ending to Simply Sara? I might love the ending to this novel even more. Click here for a sneak peak at the first chapter.
