Synopsis from Goodreads: Susan Napier's family once lived on the success of the high-end restaurants founded by her late grandfather. But bad luck and worse management has brought the business to the edge of financial ruin. Now it's up to Susan to save the last remaining restaurant: Elliot's, the flagship in Edinburgh.
But what awaits Susan in the charming city of Auld Reekie is more than she bargained for. Chris Baker, her grandfather's former protégé--and her ex-boyfriend--is also heading to the Scottish capital. After finding fame in New York as a chef and judge of a popular TV cooking competition, Chris is returning to his native Scotland to open his own restaurant. Although the storms have cleared after their intense and rocky breakup, Susan and Chris are re-drawn into each other's orbit--and their simmering attraction inevitably boils over.
As Chris's restaurant opens to great acclaim and Susan tries to haul Elliot's back from the brink, the future brims with new promise. But darkness looms as they find themselves in the crosshairs of a gossip blogger eager for a juicy story--and willing to do anything to get it. Can Susan and Chris reclaim their lost love, or will the tangled past ruin their last hope for happiness?
My Review: I thought this was a really fun quick listen. The narrator did a fantastic job with the voices and was a pleasure to listen to. I know a few reviews said the was billed as an Austen retelling but I didn't realize that until after I read it so I think that helped. I didn't just it at all in that light. There were a couple points that were a little slow but I loved the food description and the remodeling story line so I was fine with the slower parts and wasn't bored at all. Overall I think this was a really fun read and that anyone who likes foodie fiction with a bit of romance will enjoy it.
