TOGETHER AT THE TABLE by Hillary Manton Lodge is the third and final book of a trilogy Two Blue Doors. I had read the first two books, although with the time span between I had to refresh my memory as to the characters and story line. I dislike when the writers recap the story at the beginning of a book but it is often difficult to follow when the books are spread too far apart. I do like it when there is a character outline inserted.
Juliette D’Alisa is a youngest daughter of a family of chef’s and restaurant owners. Her world is turned upside down when her mother dies and a long distance romance ends. Juliette begins to see her brother’s sous chef, Adrian, who has long admired her.
Neil McLaren, an immunologist, is the other half of the long distance romance and is heartbroken. Determined to move on he takes a short term job in Juliette’s home town, not expecting to runs into her.
Will they be able to deny their love for each other when they meet? Will Juliette ever uncover her family history?
I received Together at the Table from WaterBrook Publishers for an honest review.
