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.

 

Excerpt:

“C’est dommage. Le département de chocolat cannot you take.”

 

Marie Claire’s bluntness quickened Lainey’s heartbeat. Heat radiated from her face, her heartbeat pulsed into her head. Her brow lifted off her skull. Please, don’t pass out, she silently prayed. She didn’t want to know how hard the granite floor was. “Why not?”

 

“Bad economy, vous voyez,” she said. “Their budget was cut dernière minute. There is no money. You have to return home.”

 

“But I’ve come so far.” She couldn’t return home, not when she was in the lobby. Not when she could almost smell the chocolate. She closed her eyes, breathing deeply, hoping to stop the train wreck inside her head. All she envisioned was the image of her beaming parents waving goodbye as she bustled through security. What would their expressions be if she returned home tomorrow? “What am I going to do?” she asked.

 

Marie Claire shrugged with a pained expression on her face.

 

Chocolate! Lainey needed chocolate!

 

Her tongue lolled in her mouth, craving a molten blob of chocolatey goodness to soothe her spirits and calm her heart, but the delayed flights depleted her choco-stash. There was nothing left—zilch, nada, rien du tout.

 

“Is there somewhere else I can work? Some other department? Some other job?” She would mop floors, empty trash cans, anything at Alpine Foods. She didn’t say this aloud. It wasn’t the best bargaining chip to appear too needy. Maybe she could wander the lobby with a sign around her neck, “Will work for chocolate.” Her nose tingled. She sneezed. She always sneezed right before she cried. “Please. I’m willing to do anything.”

 

Marie Claire handed her a scented tissue, biting her lip, her eyebrows peaked with sympathy. She patted Lainey’s hand. “Wait. I see what I can do. Maybe one of the other departments can you take.” She lifted the phone at the reception desk, dialed a number, and spoke in such rapid French Lainey couldn’t keep up.

What’s the first binge-worthy book you read and why was it a must-read?

 

My first binge-worthy book was probably some teen Young Adult novel from my youth. My mom would often come in at one in the morning and hiss at me to turn off my light and go to bed. But in more recent times, I started reading the Count of Monte Cristo, and I was hooked. The thing is monstrous!  Like over a thousand pages. You can carry it around with you as extra weight for exercise. But it is oh, so good. Dumas really knew how to get you to turn the pages. Each scene left you hanging. My brother and I loved it so much, we decided to turn it into a musical. He would write the music and I would write the words obviously, since I have precisely zero musical talent. Why is it a must-read? Dumas and other of his era wrote serials, and were paid by the word, so not only did they drag things out, the tension, the drama, and the conflict, they also had to leave the audience craving more every time they ended.

 

What makes this a binge-worthy book?

 

The Swiss Mishap is full of fun drama. Will Lainey get her recommendation for Chocolate. Will Yves actually get his promotion? Will they be together? I had friends who don’t read romance read The Swiss Mishap and said they were turning pages until the end, dying to know what happens. I like to keep you guessing, clear to the end.
