Sunshine & Secrets by Daisy James
When newly heartbroken, michelin-starred chef Millie Harper is offered a job overseeing the setup of The Paradise Cookery School she jumps at the opportunity. Leaving London and her memories of heartbreak behind she hops on a plane to the hilltop cocoa plantation in St Lucia.
But this beautiful island break might be more work than she’d expected…. With only two weeks to have the kitchen installed, cocoa pods going missing from the plantation and the notoriously relaxed island workmen to contend with, she’s going to need some help. Gruff but charming estate manager Zach Baxter, is only too happy to offer his opinions.
As the two clash heads can they remain focussed on the job in hand and get the cookery school finished in time?
This is the first in The Paradise Cookery School series, and what a great start it is.
I loved the exoticness of the location, the daily rain (almost like an alarm clock had gone off), and the food. OMG - the food!! The descriptions made me constantly hungry. The love interest was delicious, too.
I'm intrigued to see where Ms James takes this story in the next instalment.
