“Create one perfect bite.”
Good little widow Sophia Brown always follows the rules. When the producer of a cooking competition requests an amuse-bouche, the chefs stick with proteins. Sauces. A savory concoction. She has only one shot to impress the judges on A Taste of Heaven. But in a moment of defiance, she creates an extraordinary dessert, one that combines both the bitter and the sweet, just like her own life.
That one bite changes everything.
After a year grieving for her dead husband, forty-seven-year-old Sophia is finally ready to break out of her shell. Unfortunately, there is a large, angry obstacle standing in her way. Scottish chef Elliott Adamson has a chip on his shoulder the size of Loch Ness, and he’s blocking her path to victory.
Spurred by her daughters, she embarks on a poignant adventure that takes her from the wildflower fields of Vermont to the wind-swept vista of North Berwick, Scotland. Fear, courage, and inspiration from unlikely places will mark this journey, and Sophia is determined to persevere until the very end.
A book about 2 older people falling in love! And more. But omg, older people! And with old I mean they are not old, they are just not you know 26 ;) And I like the fact that they are older.
Sophie is 47, a widow with two kids. She loves her garden, to cook, and she was all in all a really nice and sweet woman.
Elliott was 49, a grumpy Scot with a chip on his shoulder. He was all traditional food that looks like crap is the thing! So yes he took some getting used to, Sophie felt that too. And as she started to like him, I started to like him...but maybe a few minutes later.
The book takes place during a cooking contest with a twist. As always it made me hungry. Ohh maybe a few recipes would have been nice. Anyway, they meet, they annoy each other, they annoy each other some more, they slowly start to like each other a tiny but, then a tiny bit more.
It was different. A foodie romance that develops. Two people that are perfect for each other, but can't see it. So, a nice light short romance, that you can just eat up.
I must mention one thing, her daughters seem nice. They need to have a book. I am thinking,..more Scots! Maybe a grumpy sheepfarmer and a ohh a grumpy fisherman. Lol.
Enjoyable. Light and fast.
