RESERVATIONS FOR TWO by Hillary Manton Lodge is the second book in a series. I haven't read the first but this one can stand alone if you don't want to go back. You will be curious about where the next one takes you.
It's the story of food writer, Juliette, from a family of restaurateur's who decides to open a restaurant with her brother. As they await the opening she goes to visit her parents families in Italy. While there she becomes entranced by her grandmother's past.
Her and Neil, long distance boyfriend, try to decide where their relationship is going and which, if either of them, would be willing to relocate. She's also dealing with a possibly terminal mother, all her Italian siblings along with the restaurant opening.
This book starts of a little slow for me but picks up shortly and is a fun entertaining book. I recommend it with no hesitation.
I received this book free from Water Brook Publishing for an honest review.
