Holly Walker had everything she’d ever dreamed about – a happy marriage and being mum to beautiful brown-eyed Emma – until an accident nineteen months ago tore her world apart. Now she’s a widow and single mother to a boisterous little 7-year-old girl, looking for a new start. Ready to take the next step, Holly has found herself a job as a maître d’ at Table One, a once-acclaimed restaurant in the heart of Sydney. But one extremely arrogant Frenchman isn’t going to be easy to work with…Twenty years ago, Pierre LeRoux came to Australia, following the stunning Aussie girl he’d fallen in love with. He and his wife put their personal lives on hold, determined for Pierre to take Sydney’s culinary society by storm. Just as his bright star was on the upswing, tragedy claimed the woman he was hopelessly in love with. He had been known as a Master Chef, but since his wife’s death he has become known as Monster Chef.Can two broken people rebuild their lives and find happiness once more?
I enjoyed how this story unfolded. I felt so much for both main characters. So much pain and saddness for the loss of their first love. We all handle crisis in vastly different ways. Holly learned to deal with the pain and show her daughter that it’s ok to grieve and it’s ok to cry and talk about that person. Holly was such an amazing mother, she truly did everything for her daughter.
Pierre decided to numb it away. He was breathing but not living. Then one day he decided to be part of the living again. And with the hello of a beautiful sassy women, and her charming 6 year old he finds his way back.
Pierre knows that Holly is the woman for him after he meets Emma,her witty little girl. The bond they share is incredible and when you read some of their moments you will just swoon on the spot. And let us not forget that Pierre is french, OUI! And what a hot and dirty talking french man he is. Pierre thrives to be a part of a family again and when he sees Holly and Emma he takes his chance and doesn’t let go.
This is the story of finding yourself again, finding love, and finding your happily ever after.

There’s something about the written word that’s pure magic.
Possibly it’s the fact that there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering that they’re able to change our lives.
How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?
I like to think of myself as ‘unique’. My stories aren’t for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be ‘normal’.
Normal is subjective.
I prefer to be known as a person who’s never been ‘bound by custom’ but is ‘unique by choice’.
Until next time
