From the suggestion of her friend she moves to a waterfront loft and works to rebuild her life. But just when she thinks things can not go wrong she finds her self in the middle of a lawsuit, dealing with a nosey neighbor that gets in everyone's business, and a Don Juan of landlords. Where is the Lord when everything seems to be going so wrong? And is she destined to be single for the rest of her life. Maybe "happily-ever-after" is not for her.
Truffles By The Sea was so delightful to read. It is a perfect, "take to the beach" kind of book, or just reading it you feel like you are escaping to the beach. I usually don't care for chick-lit kind of books, but this Julie Carobini has made me a fan of hers. I will be looking for more books to come.
My only complaint while reading this book is I read it while trying to diet and I was constantly hungry for brownies and truffles!!
Problems continue to assail Gaby. With all of her overhead stolen from her she has very little money to keep her in her floral business. Top that off with being sued by a disgruntled bride, her best friend Bri being too busy to sit on the beach and eat brownies, and two men vying for her attention and Gaby's world seems to be falling apart.
At first Gaby feels attracted to Max. After all he owns property, he's established, and he's extremely attractive. Gaby's new landlord Jake on the other hand confuses her with his kindness. She is wary of him because of Iris's warning, yet there is an attraction between the two.
Gaby has never given up, but she doesn't know where to turn when her life seems to be falling apart. While out driving to find perspective and clear her head she happens upon a group of women having a Bible Study at the foot of a cross. Gaby is reminded of the Lord in her life and determines to live for Him from here on.
I thought this was a fun read. In Chocolate Beach I loved Bri's sarcasm and Gaby's feisty-ness. I missed Gaby's personality at the beginning of Truffles by the Sea, but was happy to see it back once she found her confidence in who she was in the Lord.
After all her misfortune, Gaby moves into a tiny loft, which is oddly low-priced. Immediately she runs into the neighborhood busybody, Iris, who knows all the gossip (true or not) on everyone. As Gaby deals with her failing business, a ridiculous lawsuit, and her pitiful bank account, she gets the scoop (whether she wants it or not) on all her neighbors from Iris in pieces here and there. According to Iris: the next door neighbor is crazy, Gaby's landlord is a womanizer (look out!) and his best friend is a drug addict.
I don't want to say much more for fear of giving away too much, but as Gaby gets to know some of her neighbors a bit more, she discovers that often Iris only tells part of the story. But are her stories of anyone true? And just how long can Gaby continue to operate her failing business? And why is it that Gaby's best friend says she "just doesn't see it" between Gaby and her new boyfriend, Max? You'll have to read Truffles by the Sea to find the answers to these and many other questions!!
I really enjoyed this book, it was a great way to escape into someone else's life! I enjoyed how Gabi made friends with the sea-lion, that was fun! And the mystery of the sea-shells was also intriguing. This is the first book by Julie Carobini that I've read, and I think I'll be looking for more of her books!

This is one of the most poorly written books I have ever read. The plot is sloppy, the characters shallow and unbelievable; even the main character who is an idiot at best. Read morePublished 11 months ago by milbug
