Alex is a Greek chef. His family, the Santerini's own a restaurant in town as well as the next town over. They have been in the business for generations and Alex is the new generation to take over the role. It is not exactly what he wanted for his life but it is family and everything is about family. He doesn't feel he really has a choice. Otherwise he is pretty happy with his life. At the wedding of his mother to Daniel Kilcannon he meets Grace Donovan, the owner of the winery where their wedding takes place. She doesn't really give him any encouragement but he is determined to get her attention. She resist.
At that same wedding, her chef quits and walks out on her. She goes to his little cottage to beg him not to leave as she has a big interview coming up with a celebrity couple looking for a venue. At the cottage she finds three young puppies. She has no idea where they came from or what to do with them.
But the day is saved when Alex walks up looking for an item his granny lost while attending the wedding. Since dogs are the Kilcannon's business, he gets Grace and the three pups in his car and takes them to the big dog facility.
From that point on they are thrown together. Turns out Alex is a trained chef from French schools and he knows how to cook. She is beyond thrilled and talks him into working for her. Just want he wants, he now has her attention.
I LOVED this story. It has everything I love in a romance. A strong sexy hero, a strong, independent heroine. A few issues they both need to work through. And then there are all the family secrets that have Gracie and Alex solving to help Gracie find who she really is. The secrets were great and once they were on the trail it is hard to lay the book down. I couldn't. I just kept reading until I had been at it for almost 4 hours. WELL WORTH EVERY MINUTE. So far, this may be my favorite DOG book. I loved it. Well done Ms. St. Claire.
I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 11/10/2019.
This is the story of Alex Santorini and Grace Donovan. Alex has always been surrounded by family, and it has shaped who he is. He would prefer to be a French-inspired chef, but he is the short-order cook at his family’s Greek grill because that seems to be what his family needs. Grace has been a foster child her whole life, but she has a very few memories from before she entered the system at 5. Does she really have a little brother and sister or did she make them up? Or perhaps it was one of the early foster homes? Somehow when she saw this winery it felt like home, and the price was right for her to buy it.
These two people are so different, but Alex is interested in Grace so he pushes. He pushes to help her by being her chef so she can land the wedding of the century for her winery venue. He pushes to help her take care of the 3 puppies abandoned at the winery. He pushes her to try to learn more about her childhood and her family. And he pushes her to join his family. He does not push her to have sex right away, but when there is sex it is memorable. They make a great couple. I hope you love them as much as I do.
Yiayia and Gramma Finnie have decided they will take turns on which grandchild to meddle with and it is a Santorini that will get their attention. They think John is perfect for Grace Donovan, the owner of Overlook Glen Vineyards. John’s twin, Alex, has different ideas and feels that Grace needs passion and spontaneity in her life and John is not the man for her.
Grace Donovan is comfortable with doing things by the book and planning every detail so she can be in control and not surprised. Enter Alex, chef extraordinaire with a hint of mischief and a heart of gold. As will all of the books in the series we are introduced to a wonderful dogs. This time we have three motherless pups left on the side of the road that pull on Grace’s memories of being abandoned and having a brother and sister - thus we have Jack, Bitsy, and Gertie.
Grace gets a chance to showcase her winery as a premiere wedding venue if she hosts the wedding for two superstars, Blue and Scooter. With Alex’s help and thinking out of the box, Grace is in the running.
With any of Roxanne St. Clair’s book we have characters that we come to care about and want to have that wonderful happily ever after. Grace dealing with her past and Alex dealing with his past have to find their way with the help of their adorable puppies, persistence in delving into the history and of course a push from one of the Dogmothers. Be ready for smiles and tears with a large dose of puppy love.

It's a fascinating tale where you laugh a little and you cry a little, tears of sadness and joy. If this book is typically of this author then I can't wait too read more of her books.
