I truly love Nora Roberts books and will be a fan for life. I join everyone else in requesting that reprints/re-releases of earlier book SHOULD be clearly noted on the books. This is ever so much more important with Kindle! I have now twice bought a book on kindle, that I already read as a novel. This is very frustrating! I think a few do have it, but not the majority. Please allow the reader to make informed decisions as we continue to support our favorite writers.

This is one of my favorite early Nora Robert's books. The prequel, Summer Desserts was good reading, but I enjoyed Lessons Leared more because the characters were better developed. I especially enjoyed the colorful, sexy, funny, loverboy character of Carlo Franconi. The tension between Carlo and Julie is palpable. Well written and interesting, this was one of the few Robert's books that had me wondering if the lovers in this story were truly starcrossed or if they would find their way together in the end.

Hi; this isn't so much a review of this book, as to help people, because I too, hate when I find I already have something; when you literally read thousands of books, it's hard to remember them all. My understanding is that if it is a first time print Nora Roberts book it will have the gold oval with the NR initials in it on the cover; otherwise, expect that it is a reprint.

Sexy Italian chef Carlo Franconi goes on a 3 week book tour to promote his new cookbook. With him on his travels is super- organized publicist Juliet Trent, who is determined not to fall for this latin lover type. Of course, she does and he finds the one woman he's been looking for all his life. Carlo visits his friends from the book, "Summer Desserts" and it is fun to read about them again. You will probably enjoy this book more if you have already read "Summer Desserts".
Excerpt from the back of the book:
"An expert in the kitchen-and the bedroom-Carlo Franconi was more than willing to teach publicist Juliet Trent the secrets to his success. Juliet never combined business with pleasure, yet she was captivated by Carlo's outrageous boldness and charm.
But twenty-one days on tour with the world's sexiest chef was enough to stir any woman's emotions!"

I do get frustrated when books are re-released and it is difficult to tell that fact. That being said, Nora Roberts is one of my all time favorite writers and this book is one of my favorites. The characters are charming and the story moves at the perfect pace.

I don't mind having books rereleased, it's a great way to pick up a book I might have missed, and the writer still gets her royalty, which she wouldn't if I bought the book used.
I object to the publishers not saying that it's a reprint.
I'm really really tired of it.
I suppose that expecting loyalty to the reading public is a pipe dream.
Time to hit up congressmen and women, and senators. We need laws requiring disclosure. It's the only way.

It's hard to believe that the same author who wrote "The Witness" (My all time favorite book) also wrote this. You can tell Roberts was very young when she wrote this book because the male lead is a teenagers idea of a fantasy man. Any woman over the age of 20, would consider him a slick womanizer... trashy and cheap. Had they met a man like this in real life, they would be dying of laughter behind his back, not drooling over him. In any of her recent books, a male with this personality would be the date the female tried to avoid and ran away from only to bump into the real hero of the story. He even calls himself by his own name... ex. "Franconi always takes things in stride." Ackkkk... Barf... who says stuff like that? Roberts is still my favorite author though.

This being her Follow up novel to Summer Desserts, I was excited to read it.
It definitely did not let me down. it was just as great as Summer Desserts! I myself worked for a true Northern Italian Chef and her character, Carlo Franconi, reminded me sooo much of him. It was such a fun enjoyable read. I truely loved it!
Hopefully One day, I will get swept off my feet by the one true person who will accept the nature of the Culinary business just like Carlo and Summer has.
