Amazon:
Isabel Johansen, a celebrated chef who grew up in the enchanting Sonoma town of Archangel, is transforming her childhood home into a destination cooking school—a unique place for other dreamers to come and learn the culinary arts. Bella Vista's rambling mission-style hacienda, with its working apple orchards, bountiful gardens and beehives, is the idyllic venue for Isabel's project…and the perfect place for her to forget the past.

But Isabel's carefully ordered plans begin to go awry when swaggering, war-torn journalist Cormac O'Neill arrives to dig up old history. He's always been better at exposing the lives of others than showing his own closely guarded heart, but the pleasures of small-town life and the searing sensuality of Isabel's kitchen coax him into revealing a few truths of his own.

This is another good Susan Wiggs story. Besides the story of Isabel who's dream is to have a teaching cooking school at her home of Bella Vista, there are recipes to tempt you into cooking yourself. In the story, along comes Cormac O'Neill to write a story about her Grandfather, and Isabel finds herself being drawn to him. I'll not reveal anything else except to say it's a good read.

Nice book, with a lot of honey in it - honey recipes, honey for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The author could have cut down on the honey and maybe beefed up the characters more. Back and forth about the grandfather's life in Denmark during the war & present day. Twist at the end with Isabel's father...not sure if that will spin out into another book. Off to another BC'r as a RABCK.
