I absolutely loved this book!
I really loved this book. I loved the character of Olivia as a strong and independent business woman and following her journey throughout the story. I also really enjoyed getting to know the character of Finn and seeing the relationship between him and Olivia develop quite quickly.
The story is centred around Olivia and Finn getting the failing restaurant back up and running, and being successful again., and how they work together as a team to make it happen. Through working together, we see their adorable romance developing.
The Bistro by Watersmeet Bridge is a lovely and heartwarming story full of love, laughs, romance and second chances. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for that perfect summertime read.
