A Table by the Window Review

Heirloom recipes, family secrets…and a chance for love 

The youngest heir to a French-Italian restaurant dynasty, food writer Juliette D’Alisa has spent her life negotiating her skill with words and her restaurant aspirations. When her brother Nico offers her a chance to open a restaurant together, she feels torn—does she really have what it takes? Should she risk leaving her journalism career?

After the death of her grandmother, Juliette discovers an antique photograph of a man who looks strikingly like her brother. As the truth behind the picture reveals romance and dark secrets, Juliette struggles to keep the mystery away from her nosy family until she can uncover the whole story. 

Inspired by her grandmother’s evolving story, Juliette resolves to explore the world of online dating. To her surprise, she finds a kindred spirit in Neil McLaren, a handsome immunologist based in Memphis, Tennessee. With a long-distance relationship simmering, Juliette faces life-shifting decisions. How can she possibly choose between a promising culinary life and Neil, a man a world away in more ways than one? And is it possible her Grandmother’s story can help show the way?

A Table by the Window is the first book in a three book series by Hillary Manton Lodge. I loved reading A Table by the Window, I especially loved Hillary's main character, Juliette. 
Oh! And the food talked about in the book! I'm so glad that A Table by the Window came with some delicious sounding recipes. I can't wait to try some of them! (I always feel like it's a special bonus for me when there are recipes in the book I'm reading). A Table by the Window is definitely not a book that will disappoint. 

5 out of 5. An Afternoon Snack that will make you hungry and at the same time satisfy.

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.
