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 Mina 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…

Chocolate... check! 
Cheese... check! 
Snow... check! 
Skiing and Snowboarding... check! 
A real feel that you have been in Switzerland while reading... check! 
Made to feel hungry while reading... check! 
Wonderful attention to detail and enchanting storyline.... check! 

I mean what more do you want, or need me to to tell you have the latest standalone Romantic Escapes book! It's wonderful, I feel as though I've spent some time in the Swiss Alps, and met some truly wonderful people. 

I would love to stay at Amelie's Swiss Chalet. She has such a way of mixing her guess, and bringing them out of themselves.  I found I felt as though I was there alongside all of her regulars. And it was just so cozy, and even featured a daily cake each afternoon. 

And the Swiss food and cooking, especially their cakes had me continually hungry as I was reading this.  Then again so did the whole of the Cheese and Chocolate train journey and I was fascinated by Minna's love of improving recipes, and the science behind the food. 

Actually I just loved all of Minna's personality and wish i was as impulsive as she is, then again if I was able to swap lives with her, I'd also have multiple serendipitous meetings with the luscious Luke! And I wouldn't say no to him! 

There is just so so much to love about this book  but I don't want to spoil any of of it for you. It is just so wonderful and another excellent addition to this amazing series.  Although Switzerland in winter is certainly a lot colder than the countries I tend to favour, I loved its picturesque charms and really wish I was able to visit a real live ski resort at some point. 

I just really really loved this book, and it was perfect to curl up with while at the time of reading, rueing the real life travel restrictions in place.   What an incredibly lovely book that I couldn't get enough of. 

Thank you to One More Chapter and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
