About the book:
Emily Price—fix-it girl extraordinaire and would-be artist—dreams of having a gallery show of her own. There is no time for distractions, especially not the ultimate distraction of falling in love.
But Chef Benito Vassallo’s relentless pursuit proves hard to resist. Visiting from Italy, Ben works to breathe new life into his aunt and uncle’s faded restaurant, Piccollo. Soon after their first meeting, he works to win Emily as well—inviting her into his world and into his heart.
This book was one that I wanted to savor, so it took me longer than normal to read. In fact my only complaint with this book was that I didn’t want it to end.
I felt as though the words were somewhat living themselves as they leapt off the page, in a swirl of color and culture. The Italian flavor, the art, and tale of forgiveness intertwined had me longing for more when I finished the story.
Katherine Reay always surprises me. I think I know what to expect from the story, and then she throws me. This one was no different. I found myself experiencing a totally different story than I ever imagined. Highly recommend.
