In Albertson’s (“Heroes Ever After”) latest, Julieta is a gifted chef in an authentic but failing Mexican restaurant. A chance meeting with an unnamed man on Day of the Dead challenges Julieta to decide what community and familial loyalties truly mean. Ramón is the heir apparent to his family’s highly successful chain of Mexican restaurants. Faced with the truth of the beginnings of the family business, Ramón must decide whether siding with family over what he knows to be right is worth the sacrifice of a future with Julieta. Ramón and Julieta’s chemistry is at the heart of the story, though the exploration of family dynamics on both sides allows readers to further connect with the characters.
VERDICT This read is delightful; recommended to all fans of contemporary romance.
