Back Cover Blurb:
Leena Malik can't believe her luck when she is hired as a cook for Marco Conti. Leena's amazing cooking quickly finds its way into Marco's heart but is Leena ready to let Marco into her heart?
You definitely get to know the characters really, really well because of the author’s attention to detail. I really enjoyed Marco’s character; right up until his lying to ‘protect’ Leena almost got her killed. That said, he did redeem himself after that. And I found that Leena really needed to get a grip at times. But in truth, I did like both of the main characters, for the most part. I did really enjoy how close knit this family was. It’s something that you don’t see every day.
I enjoyed the premise of this story and wanted so badly to love the novel. It had potential but didn’t quite get there.
