Clever, well iintertwined and a great story. The recipes scattered through were a bonus (and a reason to keep the book not hand it on). I have tried one recipe already and loved the results (as did my husband).
The story is a nice wander through "what could have been" if we did follow the dreams of our youth. I thought the romance element was almost irrelevant to the going into business storyline.
Liked the characters, loved the setting. Well crafted and totally recommend
