A table by the window ~ Hillary Manton Lodge

This book is a fun and mysterious story.  The main character is Juliette and how she makes choices in her life that are both complicated and part of what should she do vs. what does everyone else expect her to do.  Juliette is a food blogger, single, youngest child of five, has a large family, involved with online dating, and her family owns a restaurant.  This book is packed with lots of issues and it is never a dull moment with a mysterious plot of an old family photo and what does it mean?  The mystery is all about a man in the photo and how is he connected to Juliette and her family?  You won't know until you read the book, as this is the 1st book in a series, it does end but with the option to continue in the next book.   At the end of each chapter is a family recipe, that you can cook yourself. 

I liked this book and it was very entertaining.  I would recommend this book to women and those that want to read a good chic book.  This book would make a great hallmark movie.  The downfall to this book would be the ending, it doesn't really close the story, it is left open to be concluded in book 2 of the series.  Which now I can't wait for the next book to know what is going to happen.
