Olivia (MC) and I would be great friends. For one, she’s a foodie, a chef and she loves to cook. I’m a foodie, a chef in training and I’m a dessert gal, not so much on the cooking side. We will be the ying and yang. Secondly, her fashion style is like mine, so yep… Shopping trips in thrift stores and second hand shops! I really love the way this book is written 5 stars out of 5. It is the perfect Summer read for those who have a heart that will melt like butter for food and romance.
“The Secret Ingredient. Pit life as you know it. Marinate in summertime.”Forever in love with this
I’m so glad I found this at the bookfair a few years ago, this book is one of my all time fav reads ❤️ I will write a proper review ( and reread) when I have time.
