My Rating: 5 out of 5
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.
I really loved getting lost in this sunshine-packed story by Lucy Coleman. Lainey is a food writer for a renowned magazine. We are introduced to Lainey as she is about to review one of the hottest restaurants in London – Aleatory. Having interviewed the very good-looking) Chef, Rick, Lainey hopes this will help boost her career. What she wasn’t expecting is the invitation from Rick to accompany him to film a cooking competition in Andalucia, Spain.
The more time they both spend working together in the beautiful Andalucia, the more they become attracted to each other. There is just one problem. Rick is already engaged. I really enjoyed following both Lainey and Rick’s journeys, the ups and downs, and all the emotions in between. I don’t want to give anything away – you will have to raed the story to see what happens with Lainey and Rick!
Summer in Andalucia is an incredible story of friendship, romance, incredible food, and idyllic settings. The perfect book to curl up with now that we have this cold weather and enjoy getting lost in the incredible sights and sounds of Spain – I swear I almost could feel the sun on my face as I was reading it!
