In a cosy corner of Paris, a delicious little patisserie is just waiting to be discovered. And romance might just be on the menu…

As the youngest of four, Nina Hadley has always had her big brothers telling her what to do. So, when she’s given the chance to move to Paris and help run a patisserie course, she can’t say au revoir quick enough!

There’s just one problem: high-flying chef Sebastian Finlay is the owner of the patisserie. He’s also her brother Nick’s best friend – and the man she has secretly been in love with since forever.

Amongst the mouth-wateringly delicious eclairs and delicate macaroons, Nina’s culinary creations aren’t the only tempting thing she’s working with…

The Little Paris Patisserie is another gem in this series, and one I am incredibly excited to be able to shout about! 

My only regret with regards to reading this book is that I couldn't quite find enough time to sit and read it in one sitting,  as it was just so, so so good!! Everytime I put it down the characters stayed in my head for hours, and I just loved Nina and Sebastian and all those on the patisserie course. 

Ok there was a second regret that I wasn't reading this in a patisseries myself, as I wanted nothing more than to scoff all of the incredibly yummy food that was being produced,  and I am partial to an eclair or two, and the macarons sounds fabulous too.  Not to mention the visit to Ladurée and other patisserie's in Paris which all sounded so different but with gorgeous decors and sumptuous sounding treats. 

I really don't want to tell you anything else about the book as its s so amazing and has some wonderful threads running though it, that starting with no info is good, as it will heighten your enjoyment, as you see how everything comes together. 

I mean obviously there is Patisserie - both the place and the act of making delicious pastry and delicate treats,  there is a sexy man who Nina knew well already as he is her best friends brother, there are all manner of fabulous people learning the art of patisserie from a course owner who is reluctant to be running it and a would have rather Nina wasn't his assistant. 

Oh and its in Paris, which means we get to experience aspects of Paris from the point of view of someone who has never been, and her new found friends.  There are secrets, discoveries, eclairs (did I already mention those), and some clear tension. Add in some great  dialogue,  a couple of really fun outings  and of course fabulous writing and storytelling from Julie Caplin and you have a wonderful book.  

I'm over the moon to see this isn't the last of this amazing series, and really looking forward to reading the next one already.  If you love your romantic comedy books, or ones featuring tantalising food, then definitely make sure to add this to your TBR pile today! 

Thank you to Netgalley and Harper Impulse for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
