Izzy Calabrese is the owner slash head chef of Bella, an Italian restaurant, originally started by her mother. Along with her siblings, Izzy is running the restaurant and making a success of the venture. She is not interested in relationships after having been cheated by her ex, Dana. While she has moved on, Dana hasn’t and keeps reappearing, asking Izzy to take her back.

Mel Thomas is CEO of a consulting firm which amongst other things does websites. She is in a ten-year old godawful marriage. Her friends are mystified as to why a strong, successful businesswomen like her is staying with her cheating husband with whom she hasn’t had sex in the past year. Even before that sex was at most, infrequent.

During her birthday celebration in Bella, Mel’s husband claims work and leaves her, after having promised to spend the weekend with her. Mel has a meltdown and Izzy offers her a shoulder to cry on and then ends up giving her phone number to Mel…to straight, married Mel.

The author has written Izzy and Mel as emotional, passionate women with their own flaws. They have issues of jealousy, of jumping to conclusions about each other, of not hearing the other…many of the typical new-relationship issues that are so common. But with all their imperfections, misunderstandings and being deaf to the other, the reader wants them to be together and roots for them all through…without getting frustrated with them. That is quite the skill of the writing.

A high on drama book, which a fairly nice, nevertheless.
