Summer in Andalucia by Lucy Coleman #BlogTour

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

With everything that is going on in the world right now, we are all in need of some escapism whilst we are stuck where we are, and this is something that Lucy Coleman never fails to deliver to her readers.

Lainey is a feature writer for an upscale dining magazine, and when she is sent to interview Chef Rick Oliver at his new restaurant Aleatory in London’s Green Park, a tentative friendship begins to form between them. Rick’s new restaurant is a joint venture with his rather hostile fiancée Cathy – a singer who’s contribution has made his dreams a reality, so although they can’t deny the chemistry that is there between them, they both realise that nothing can ever come of it.

When Rick offers Lainey the opportunity to cover an exclusive story on a cooking competition that is taking place in Spain, it is an offer she cannot refuse. As Lainey and Rick spend more time together exploring Spain in a far more informal setting, they grow closer with every passing day, however the constant reminder that Ricky is off limits is at the end of the phone throughout..

I refuse to give away any spoilers about this book as it is such a joy to read!. The characters are fantastic and well developed, with each of them having so many unique qualities and stories to share, they really do reel you in and have you fully invested in their lives throughout this book. The friendships and relationships that develop throughout this story are an absolute delight to follow and truly warmed my heart.

Lucy Coleman has been a favourite author of mine for quite some time now, and her refreshing way of bringing a story to life always lives up to my expectations, or in this case goes above and beyond. Heart warming, full of charm with a storyline that has you immersed to the very end, I loved this book.
