Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Delightful, fun, fake romance and family feud – The Sweetheart Deal by Miranda Liasson

From the bestselling author of the Angel Falls series, two enemies say “I do” in the first irresistible book about Blossom Glen.

Pastry chef Tessa Montgomery knows what everyone in the teeny town of Blossom Glen says about her. Spinster. Ice Queen. Such a shame. It’s enough to make a woman bake her troubles away, dreaming of Parisian delicacies while she makes bread at her mother’s struggling boulangerie. That is until Tessa’s mortal enemy—deliciously handsome (if arrogant) chef Leo Castorini, who owns the restaurant next door—proposes a business plan…to get married.

Leo knows that the Castorinis and the Montgomerys hate each other, but a marriage might just force these stubborn families to work together and blend their businesses for success. The deal is simple: Tessa and Leo marry, live together for six months, and then go their separate ways. Easy peasy.

It’s a sweetheart deal where everyone gets what they want—until feelings between the faux newlyweds start seriously complicating the mix. Have they discovered the perfect recipe for success…or is disaster on the way?

My Review:

A contemporary 'Romeo and Juliet' style romance
Where feuding family means they shouldn't have a chance.
Thank goodness there's no poison involved this time
As a for restauranteur and pastry chef that'd be a crime!

This is a lovely read with a fake romance
To force their families to listen and give new ideas a chance.
It isn't supposed to become the real deal
But love has its own rules on how they both feel!

There's family drama a plenty in this fun read
Where secrets are what none of them really need.
With a deadline in mind, what could change their fate?
Will it end up improving their businesses or is it too late?

The characters are great and their relationships, too,
And the plot has twist making you wonder what they'll do.
There are tasty dishes and pastries sounding divine
Mouth watering and tempting, simply sublime!

Such a fun read, it put a smile on my face
So on your 'to be read' pile I hope you'll give it a space!
For my complementary copy it, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.
