What a wonderful book! I loved the story, the characters and especially the voice. The characters had depth and were flawed - the hero was wonderfully clueless most of the time, but in a good way. It is set in France and not in a 'cardboardy' way - as I gather from the info about the author, she lives/lived in France and it shows. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.

"Her father's worst enemy ... Top chef Gabriel Delange never forgave his old nemesis Pierre Manon for all the other chef had cost him. One stolen rose ... And he most certainly couldn't stand the sight of his own most famous dessert, the legendary Rose, claimed as Pierre's own on the cover of his new cookbook. A beast's substitute victim ... But even Gabriel could hardly go through with a lawsuit when he learned the older chef had just had a stroke. Especially not when Pierre had one very cute daughter willing to be Gabriel's victim instead. A fascinated beauty ... As a child, Jolie Manon had seen her family torn apart by her top chef father's obsession with his work. As a food writer, she might be fascinated with a chef's work, but she knew how to guard her heart. She would never allow another chef into her life. Unless he blackmailed her into it ... Welcome to the heat and sun of Provence, where jasmine and roses climb up old colored walls, where fountains play in ancient stone villages, and where even a beast can prove he is a prince at heart"--Booksurge.… (more)
