It’s time to pack your bags and head to the breathtaking, snow-covered peaks of the Swiss Alps for velvety hot chocolates, delicious cheeses and a gorgeous love story…
Food technician Minna has always believed that chocolate will solve everything – and it’s just what she needs when her latest relationship mishap goes viral!
So with her bags packed and a new determination to sort her life out, Minna decides to drown her sorrows with the best hot chocolate in the world at her godmother’s cosy Swiss chalet. Chocolate: yes. Romance: no. Until she has a run in on an Alpine train with a mysterious but oh-so-gorgeous stranger…
If you read the story summary as above and then read the story, it delivers everything promised. There are snow covered mountains, a cosy Swiss chalet, plenty skiing, chocolate and cheese.
To add to this virtual vacationing in a snowy Swiss village we have a love story, characters who are quirky, fun and adventurous to say the least. The scenery of skiing, snow paired with tours of chocolate and cheese places is wonderfully woven into the characters lives.
For me reading this story was no less than having a vacation right from the comfort of my home. If you read one book this month, please do pick up this one I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Author – Julie Caplin, formerly a PR director, swanned around Europe for many years taking top food and drink writers on press trips (junkets) sampling the gastronomic delights of various cities in Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, Copenhagen and Switzerland. It was a tough job but someone had to do it. These trips have provided the inspiration and settings for her Romantic Escapes series which have been translated into fifteen different languages.
The first book in the seven strong series, The Little Café in Copenhagen, was shortlisted for a Romantic Novel of the Year Award.
