Spotlight and Giveaway: Just One Taste

If anyone wanted to know what happened to Olive after Manifest ended, now's your chance! Just kidding. The main character of Lizzy Dent's latest rom-com, Just One Taste, shares her first and last name with that iconic Manifest character though. It will be on shelves next week to add to your mid-summer TBR. This sounds like a sexy, foodie love story that you will be devouring in no time. Thanks to Putnam, we have TWO copies to give away!

When Olive Stone and her Italian pseudo-celebrity chef father fell out fourteen years ago, annoyingly handsome Leo Ricci slipped right in as his surrogate son and sous-chef. No one is more surprised than Olive when her father wills her his beloved (and now failing) restaurant. Or that his dying wish was for Olive and Leo to complete his cookbook…together.

She’s determined to sell the restaurant. Leo is determined to convince her not to. As they embark on four weeks in Italy, traveling from Sicily to Tuscany to Liguria, they’ll test each other as often as they test recipes. But the more time Olive and Leo spend together, the more undeniable their attraction grows. Olive finds herself wondering whether selling the restaurant might be running away, and what it might be like to try Just One Taste of Leo Ricci. Because he isn’t who she expected, and this trip might reveal more about who Olive is than she’s ready for. (Synopsis courtesy of Amazon.)

“Follow Lizzy Dent to Italy and you will smell the oranges, feel the sunshine and taste the first perfect kiss. Just One Taste is a deliciously romantic and emotional exploration of love and loss, with Dent’s signature humor and sense of fun. Five big stars from me.”
—Annabel Monaghan, national bestselling author of Same Time Next Summer
 
"Dent's cozy, slow-burn romance is a heartfelt journey through Italian cuisine and culture. Readers will delight in the rich descriptions of food and dream of a summer holiday in Italy.” 
Booklist
 
“In vivid prose, Dent brings the Italian countryside to life while building a simmering attraction between her leads. Hopeless romantics looking for an armchair vacation will want to check this out.” 
—Publishers Weekly
