Managing a restaurant, dealing with a mother's death, the end of one romance and beginning of another and a mystery from the past are all included in this book which is the third in the "Two Blue Doors" series. Juliette is managing a brand new restaurant with the help of her brother. Her mother has just passed away from ovarian cancer. She has ended a long distance romance with Neil. Neil is an immunologist in Memphis while Juliette's work and family are in Portland, Oregon. The distance between them seemed to be to much to overcome. Between her hectic restaurant schedule and a new relationship with fellow co-worker, Adrian, Juliette's life becomes more complicated. As Juliette deals with the grief in her life, she continues to look into questions about her grandmother and her life during World War II which is the mystery from the past.
Cooking and food is very much a part of the book and there are recipes interspersed throughout the book. Culinary enthusiasts will enjoy that part of the book. If you did not read the first two books, the part about the questions of Juliette's grandmother's life in France during World War II might be hard to understand. The rest of the plot of the book is engaging enough, but it may be difficult to g
et into the book if you have not read the first two books in the series.
I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.
