Today I am delighted to be sharing my review for the wonderful new release by Julie Caplin, a perfect read to provide a little escapism.
The Little Swiss Ski Chalet was a superb read that loved from beginning to end, I had been looking forward to curling up to read this between Christmas and New Year and it did not disappoint.
The location was absolutely perfect and I loved being transported away from the damp weather in Kent to the wonderful snow coated Swiss Alps. A story filled with love and amazing food, I love the way the author explores food in these stories and in this series I have learnt so much about different traditions in different countries. This time we got to explore Switzerland and learn more about their local dishes, chocolate and amazing cakes.
The Little Swiss Ski Chalet had a host of wonderful characters that I loved getting to spend time with. Mina was a great leading lady and I loved her relationship with her godmother as it reminded me of the treasured relationship between my daughter and her godmother.
A story that feels like a giant hug, the perfect feel good read to enjoy whilst snuggled under cosy blankets with a large mug of hot chocolate hiding away from the wet and miserable winter weather.
It’s time to pack your bags and head to the breathtaking, snow-covered peaks of the Swiss Alps for velvety hot chocolates, delicious cheeses and a gorgeous love story…
Food technician Minna has always believed that chocolate will solve everything – and it’s just what she needs when her latest relationship mishap goes viral!
So with her bags packed and a new determination to sort her life out, Minna decides to drown her sorrows with the best hot chocolate in the world at her godmother’s cosy Swiss chalet. Chocolate: yes. Romance: no. Until she has a run in on an Alpine train with a mysterious but oh-so-gorgeous stranger…
