Lucinda Soto is the Maitre d' at her father-in-law Sidney's restaurant. When she shows up for work one day, she enters the kitchen where her daughter, Ariana, is hanging out cooking with her father-in-law...and Colin!
Years ago, Lucie dated rich-boy Colin Murriere. When he ended their relationship in a less-than kind manner, she fell into the arms of her good friend Rob Soto. Unfortunately, she suffered greatly at Rob's hand - to the point of it almost costing the lives of her and her daughter. Widowed several years now, she works at the Gull and Oar and attends college to secure the future of her and her daughter.
Colin has recently won a cooking reality show, and used the winnings to buy the 5-star Gull and Oar from Sidney, who wants to retire and move to Florida. Lucie is the girl he couldn't forget, and he looked for her for a long time, never suspecting she married. Having found her, he intends to make her his again.
Lucie has never forgiven Colin for the way he dumped her. She admits she even cheered for his opponent on the cooking show, which she and her daughter watched regularly. Ariana, on the other hand, cheered for Colin.
Ariana, proclaimed by her grandfather to be his best sou chef, is disappointed when her mom tells her she can no longer hang out at the restaurant after school. She knows her mom does not like Chef Colin, but no one will tell her why. She is determined, after Colin tells her they once dated, that they belong together. She needs to find a way to get them back together so Colin can be her new daddy!
The story is not a very long one, but since Colin and Lucie have a history, it works. I was able to relate to and like the characters. It was a nice ending to an unrequited love. This is only the second work by this author I have read, but I have LOVED both of them so far. This, in my mind, is a sign of more good things to come.
