Publisher's Summary

Hanna has a foodie's dream job: as a culinary journalist, she gets to travel across Europe to write up the Continent's finest restaurants. But after penning a scathing review of a restaurant nestled in a Tuscan apricot grove, her boss informs her of a big problem: when the restaurant's owner read the article, she keeled over dead from a heart attack. Now the owner's grandson, Fabrizio, has filed a lawsuit against the magazine, and if Hanna can't convince him to drop the case, she'll lose her job.

Determined to keep her career off the chopping block, Hanna returns to the restaurant to apologize. But upon her arrival, she finds that the little old lady's death has created more than just the usual grief, since Granny's will stipulates that Fabrizio will inherit the restaurant if - and only if - he's married. With time running out for them both, the young man offers a crazy deal: he'll drop the lawsuit if Hanna agrees to be his bride. As things heat up in and out of the kitchen, the two wonder: Could Granny's scheme turn out to be a recipe for romance?

Skip the Audio version...

Pleasant enough story but ruined by the male narration. Female narrator used her normal voice for (German) heroines narration/ dialogue, interspersed with good French/Italian accents for side characters. Male narrator used cringe worthy accent for everything, sounding more Russian-Pakistani than Italian. (wondering how the producers thought this performance acceptable?). Save your audiobook credit.

Terrible

Found this very hard going gave up completely after a couple of chapters. Partly due to narrator.
