Together at the Table by Hilllary Manton Lodge

Juliette loves her life in Portland, Oregon.  She runs a successful restaurant with her brother and she has a steady boyfriend, Adrian, and a loving family. However, she is still grieving her beloved mother when the book begins and she finds herself missing her ex-boyfriend, Neil.  When she connects with Neil again unexpectedly, she has to make a choice...A crisis at the restaurant helps her to decide what is really important in her life...

Julie is also researching a family mystery concerning her great-uncle which will lead her  to finding long-lost cousins, a château in France and a moving love story set in the horrors of the Second World War.  I found that there were several members of this family and it was quite complicated.  Perhaps, a family tree may have helped!

This was a charming  and romantic story with likeable, warm-hearted people, picturesque settings, a dramatic war-time tale and the bonus of delicious-sounding recipes!  Unfortunately, this is the third book in a series and I like to read series from the beginning.  I will certainly read the other books by Hillary Manton Lodge in order and find out how Juliette met Neil and Adrian.

I received this free ebook from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
