Together At The Table (A Review + Vlog)



I was so excited when I got an email to review Together At The Table by Hillary Manton Lodge! This book is the third in the Two Blue Doors series, and I read and reviewed both of the other books as well (here and here).  I really enjoyed the first two, and I was excited to see how Juliette's story would play out.




In this book we find Juliette struggling to figure out what she wants in her romantic relationships amidst losing her mother and opening the restaurant with her brother.  I won't say too much because I don't want to give it away, but after all personal problems are resolved Juliette travels back to Italy to unravel the mystery of her grandmother's life.

Once again, this book was slow-paced, but not in a boring way.  This is a warm and cozy slow-paced, and I enjoyed it very much.  I was very satisfied with how Juliette's personal relationships worked out.  This book is also full of recipes, and I feel like I can never give it away because I want to try all of them!  The food descriptions in this book make me want to break out my pots and pans and create something.

My favorite part of this book was the last third, when Juliette visits her family in Italy and uncovers the last secrets of her family history. I loved reading about Mirielle and how her story played out.  Then ending was bittersweet to me as we see all that could have been, but not too sad because everyone's lives worked out for good.  If you haven't read this series and you are up for a more contemplative novel, definitely check them out!


Note: I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for a review.  This is my honest opinion.
