About this deal

It was interesting to simultaneously be transported to Lila's Miami from her memories and attachment to her home, but also to be transported to Winchester England. A charming, heartwarming story following a Miami girl who unexpectedly finds love - and herself - in a small English town. I did find that through the middle it dragged a bit, but overall, this book was just steeped in passion and hit a lot of levels and did it all so well! Before long, Lila can’t control the route of her own heart as she begins to fall for more than a new love. Through the power of baking and delicious Cuban cooking, this story made it especially clear at how food can help one heal, but also bring people together.

it's a love story to your family and the places and people that are home, to healing and finding comfort in places and people and food and tradition.

I work with the publisher frequently (not on this book), but this in no way alters my review and I remain impartial.

In fact, when Orion takes Lila to visit his mother in the dementia facility, it’s all about how traumatic and hard it is for Lila. Orion was an adorable love interest and while I didn't feel super invested in their romance, I realized in the end when there were some super cute moments that I was more into it than I even realized!

Stars - Update: I've decided to round up to 4 because 2 hours after finishing I am still thinking about the last quarter of the book and that earns an extra half star because it has left an impression. While she wandered around with Orion it did read a little like a tour guide manual at times with information garnered from the internet rather than experience. Laura Taylor Namey is the New York Times bestselling author of Reese’s Book Club pick A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow, and The Library of Lost Things. I adored this sugar-sweet novel that made me laugh, cry and wish on a happy ending for a girl with big dreams and a star-named boy. Why would you select someone that can’t do an English accent when the majority of the book is set in Hampshire, UK.
