My South Beach Love Book Review
About the author:
Caridad Pineiro is a transplanted Long Island girl who has fallen in love with the Jersey Shore. When Caridad isn’t taking long strolls along the boardwalk, she’s also a NY Times and USA Today bestselling author with over a million romance novels sold worldwide. She is a founding member of the Liberty States Fiction Writers and has presented workshops at the RT Book Club Convention, Romance Writers of America National Conference as well as various writing organizations throughout the country.
This is the South Beach Love book description from Amazon:
Two chefs are catering the 15th-birthday parties of two girls who are definitely not friends. Only one of the celebrations will be chosen to be featured in the local paper. And both chefs have something to prove.
Tony Sanchez, the established executive chef of a New York restaurant, is on a long-overdue visit home to Miami. He’s committed to making the celebration the best it can be – for the sake of his niece, the rest of his family, and his reputation.
Sara Kelly hadn’t known much about quinceañeras before she agreed to cater one for her niece. It’s a chance to both help her family and to promote her brand-new restaurant in Miami. From her Cuban sister-in-law, Sara learns about quince traditions, appreciating the meaning behind them.
When Tony was growing up, Sara was his best friend’s little sister; now, he sees her in a very different light. But his last relationship with another chef ended in disaster…and Sara knows that, once the parties are over, he’ll be gone. Can either of them entertain the idea of a new romance?
I really enjoyed this light-hearted romance novel. Not only did I read the book, but I also ordered the audio version of South Beach Love so that I could listen while I took my morning walks. The story was probably a little predictable, but it was entertaining and kept me captivated throughout from beginning to end. The detail and descriptions used in the book made me feel like I was in Miami with the characters. I really enjoyed the way the author introduced the readers to another culture that we may not have had any previous knowledge about.
As you can see, I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. The print version of the book is available in Hallmark stores, bookstores, and other retailers. The print book, e-book, and audiobook are also available online through various retailers.
