A perfect blend of smart, steamy, and fun…
Bailey delivers a serpentine plot that is both fresh and utterly charming in his latest. Trying to leave the hurt of an unsavory past relationship behind, Zola Washington is ready to open a café in Toronto with her gay roommate, Pierre Jackson. Darshan Singh is a food critic for Gourmet magazine. But when Zola meets Darshan, her plans of starting her café sems to go haywire. From the opening page, readers will find themselves entangled into the various characters’ stories. Bailey creates a memorable cast of characters: from the very determined Zola to the calm and collected Darshan, from the fierce Mrs. Singh to adorable Pierre, the characters will make you fall in love with them. Love, romance, and food are central to this rom-com, but the most important journey is Zola’s as she learns to listen to her heart and discovers that letting the heart guide you is the pathway to happiness. Delicious recipes at the end are an added bonus. A delightfully sweet and funny ode to food, family, culture, and love, this one is a real winner.
