Title: The Swiss Mishap

Author: Amey Zeigler

Genre: New Adult Romantic Comedy, Sweet Romance

Book Blurb:

For the last twelve years, more than half her life, Lainey Peterson has prepared to design, create, and produce quality chocolate bars. But when she discovers her chocolate internship at Switzerland's prestigious Alpine Foods has been canceled, she vows to do whatever it takes to get to Chocolate.

Yves Claremont, a young, ambitious department chair, would sacrifice everything to rise to vice president at Alpine Foods and redeem his father's name. Impressed with Lainey's resume and charming determination, Yves offers her an internship in his Pet Care department, promising a recommendation for Chocolate if she does well.

Lainey is drawn to the enigmatic and passionate Yves Claremont. He cannot deny his growing attraction to her. But inter-office relationships are strictly forbidden by Alpine Foods, and a perceptive co-worker, jealous of Yves' success, will undermine Yves and Lainey any way he can.

My Review:

All her life Lainey has learned everything nuance to chocolate. Her dream is to work in the chocolate department of Alpine Foods in Switzerland. She secures an internship and is finally on her quest to become a chocolatier. Once she arrives, though, she discovers her internship has been cancelled. Lainey goes into a panic but help is around the corner and his name is Yves. He offers her an internship in the pet care department. Can Lainey show stuffy, uptight Yves she’s the gal for Alpine Foods or will her fear of dogs prevent her from achieving her dreams?

The Swiss Mishap is a feast for the mind, body and soul. It’s message of indulging in what life has to offer, overcoming your fears and taking the leap of faith when falling in love is heartwarming. Lainey reminds me of me when I was that age and traveled to France. Her love of chocolate connected me to her right away and I totally got hungry while reading.

What makes this a five-star romance? While the romance was sweet, there was such an attraction between Lainey and Yves, it was delightful to watch it unfold. Yes, both of them clashed heads but again, it made the reading all the more delicious. It is a very sweet romance so there’s only kissing at the very end. While I squealed with delight when they finally got together, I wish it would’ve happened sooner. More kissing, please.

If you’re looking for a romantic comedy you can savor while wanting to travel abroad, pick up The Swiss Mishap today. You’ll never look at chocolate the same. Highly recommend!
