Book Review: "Together at the Table"

Together at the Table is the third and final book in Hillary Manton Lodge's Two Blue Doors series. Lodge ended the trilogy beautifully.

As this final book begins, Juliette D'Alisa is trying to move forward with life. In less than a year, she lost both her grandmother and her mother. She also broke up with the love of her life. She's found a new love, though, the sous-chef at the restaurant now inhabiting her grandmother's final home. Juliette and her brother Nico, with the help of family, friends, and staff have turned the restaurant into a successful one. Juliette is ready to resume her research, determined to solve the mystery of her grandmother's letters about what really happened to her family living near Paris in World War II.

Of course, every chapter references food and most of these are accompanied by recipes for bold readers to try. And again, the story takes readers from Portland to Chicago to France. Readers who love to play tourist will want to visit these places once they finish the book.

I enjoyed reading this series and thank Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers for sending this final installment in exchange for my honest review. I recommend it to fans of romance, history, recipes, and travel.
