Title: Swiss Mistletoe and Macarons
Author: Amey Zeigler
Genre: Clean Romance, Sweet Romance, Sweet Holiday Romance
Baking enthusiast Livi Hanson never misses Jean-Marc’s online videos. Hoping to save money for pastry school, she agrees to nanny over Christmas break in Switzerland for generous overtime pay.
To expand his audience, pastry chef and internet star Jean-Marc Dobrinsky scores a contract for a network TV slot with one caveat: he needs an attractive co-host who equals him in the kitchen.
When she’s invited to bake with Jean-Marc, Livi must prove she has the culinary chops, and Jean-Marc must put aside his pride. Can they rise to the challenge, or will it flop?
Livi loves to bake and never misses pastry chef Jean-Marc’s online videos. When she gets the opportunity to share the spotlight with him on a network tv show, will she shine like meringue or deflate like overwhipped egg whites? The highlight of each week for Livi is to bake along with internet sensation Chef Jean-Marc online. She works full-time as a nanny but she’s saving money to go to culinary school. She agrees to nanny over Christmas for the money, not realizing she’s about to meet Jean-Marc and get the opportunity to do what she loves most: bake. Working with Jean-Marc is challenging but if she’s serious about her baking dreams, she must let her culinary talents shine. Is she the co-host he needs, both on-screen and off?
Swiss Mistletoe and Macarons is a sweet romance I thoroughly enjoyed. As a baker myself, I connected with both Livi and Jean-Marc. Sometimes, in order to reach your dreams, you need to look for inspiration in unknown places. I loved Livi as a heroine. I found her character to be selfless, sweet, and a bit shy. It took me a while to warm up to Jean-Marc. He’s very realistic as far as a pastry chef in the culinary world. It was fun to watch this couple figure things out. Amey Zeigler has a beautiful writing talent, especially when it comes to sweet romance. Her writing reminds me of classic romance from years gone by. There are some very valuable life lessons in Swiss Mistletoe and Macarons as well as an uplifting romance. If you’re looking for a sweet holiday romance set abroad, pick up Swiss Mistletoe and Macarons. A perfect book to curl up to this holiday season. Highly recommend!
