A Table by the Window by Hillary Manton Lodge

This is a Christian Fiction about a woman raised by a French family and her grandmother had a pastry store. After her grandmother’s death, she is finding her way of dealing with the loss and stumbles over a picture in a kitchen piece she inherits. There is mystery as she tries to find out who is in the picture, while she tries to determine if she will go into business with her brother. She is also trying to find her place in life after being the “single” woman for so long. She has to face a relative with a serious illness and tries her hand at love.
Each chapter starts with a quote about food or chocolate, which I find cute. At the end of every chapter is a recipe, of course they are French related and some are complex, but recipes are always something I like to look at – a little extra given after finishing a chapter. This isn’t a normal book that I would had picked up to read, but I am glad I did. It was a good little getaway story that was enjoyable. I would had liked to had seen a few extra chapters at the end of the story to continue the ending, but it has a good ending that leaves you able to put the ending details together and leaves you thinking about the characters. This isn’t one of those Christian fiction books that shares verses or leaves a little lesson, the characters basically go to church. But it is a book that I would recommend for anyone that likes a good story! I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this honest review.
