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…
I absolutely loved this book. It has such a great story line which is more than ‘just a romance’. It’s a wonderfully described journey of self discovery with interesting but not overwhelming back stories and perfectly balanced side elements. I enjoyed the cooking/baking elements, it really added a unique twist and who doesn’t love chocolate?
I also particularly loved the descriptions of the setting and the rich character development. I could easily imagine myself in the chalet, a dream holiday. Very easy to read and follow, it is truly the perfect book to escape into. I would recommend this book!!
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.
