Classic Crave: The Love Season by Elin Hilderbrand

December 23, 2008 at 8:38 am Leave a comment

This was the first Elin Hilderbrand novel I read, and if you’re a regular reader you know this summer I read more by her. She’s always great for a vacation read.

Renata, 19, wants to learn about her mother, who died 14 years earlier. Marguerite, a former chef of a culinary hotspot on Nantucket, is Renata’s godmother and was her mother’s best friend and holds the answers Renata seeks.

As Marguerite prepares for the meal – meeting old friends and reminicing about her life before Candace’s death – Renata goes about her day -making decisions which will alter her future.

This is a quick enjoyable read with believable characters. There is suspense about why Marguerite feels responsible for Candace’s death that keeps the reader interested.  It’s also a sad, bittersweet tale and shocking when you discover why Marguerite can’t taste. And the last line is quite haunting.
