Summer in Andalucia by Lucy Coleman **Book Review** @rararesources

Happy weekend bookworms!

It is always a good day when I am reading a Lucy Coleman book! This book was so fun and full of all the summer vibes! We’ve been having summer weather here in Southern California so that really put me in the sunny summer mood!☀️

Summer in Andalucia

Lainey Summers feels blessed to have her dream job writing for a renowned foodie magazine. And the day she goes to interview chef Rick Oliver at his new restaurant—Aleatory—in London’s popular Piccadilly, is the start of an unexpected journey.

When Rick is offered the opportunity to jet off to a monastery in Andalucía, to film a cookery competition for Spanish TV, Lainey goes too, to cover the story.

Spending a month filming in the stunning Spanish countryside, soaking up the sights, sounds, smells and of course the cuisine, Lainey and Rick start to enjoy each other’s company. But their time together flies by too quickly, and before they know it, Rick and Lainey have to face going their separate ways.

With both their worlds shifting beneath them, the call of Andalucia and the call of happiness grows ever stronger. But with everything at stake, will they be able to take the chance of a happy-ever-after…

Let Lucy Coleman whisk you off on a sun-baked, life-affirming, total escape to beautiful Andalucia.  

My Thoughts

Food, romance, fun, and sun! This was such a delightful story filled with delicious food and summer vibes. Laney works for a magazine and is sent to Andalucia to cover a prestigious cooking contest hosted by famous chef Rick Oliver. Things start heating up both in and out of the kitchen between Laney and Rick. The problem is Rick is involved with notable musician Cathy. So things are a bit complicated.

This truly was the perfect escape! Loved everything about this book the food, the location, the characters, did I mention the food? Laney and Rick were great characters and I really loved the chemistry they had between one another. And fortunately the story was less of a love triangle then it sounds like. Laney also had complicated relationships with her parents and I liked how that was addressed in the book. There really was a lot of delectable fabulousness packed into this little treat of a story!
