“Lee is a gifted writer, particularly when writing about the all-consuming power of desire. Her descriptions are lush, and they’re employed most effectively when she lovingly details the meals and pastries Aubrey and Landon both make and eat. I found myself needing to put down the book often to go slake my all-consuming hunger induced by her tantalizing passages devoted to extraordinary meals. “


  • Booklist

“This dreamy romance is set in small California towns that ooze charm. Lee’s mouthwatering descriptions of food, beer, and wine are just as alluring as the couple’s spicy mutual attraction. Delightful secondary characters round out the story; although the pair struggles with messy family relationships, they each have fun and supportive friends. Lee’s lush romance is a delectable delight.”
