About the Author

Samantha Vérant is a travel addict, a self-professed oenophile, and a determined, if occasionally unconventional, at home French chef. She lives in southwestern France, where she's married to a sexy French rocket scientist she met in 1989 (but ignored for twenty years), a stepmom to two incredible kids, and the adoptive mother to a ridiculously adorable French cat. When she’s not trekking from Provence to the Pyrénées or embracing her inner Julia Child, Sam is making her best effort to relearn those dreaded conjugations.

Reviewed in the United States on 30 September 2020
Open a bottle of wine and grab a few hours in a comfy chair. This is a fun weekend read. It took me a weekend split into a few sections of time and I was able to enjoy a bottle of wine.

This is Samantha Verant's third book and she delivers a great story just like the first two (5 Letters From Paris; How To Make a French Family.)

The characters are well developed along with the story line. She has a great writing style where you feel you're actually in the story and connected to each person. I was rooting for Sophie to get that Michelin star and devastated when she was sabotaged. I felt like I was right there with her. The friendships and relationships seem very real and very current. Samantha writes in a style that just makes everyone and every situation relatable.

Fun, great read. I bought this book and others' of Samantha's books to give as gifts because they are just great reads, great stories and nice little escapes from our own realities. Her books are enjoyed by many different age groups and backgrounds. My friends have loved them.
