Juliette feels on top of the world when her and her brother, Nico's restaurant opens to rave reviews. But that feeling is short-lasted, when in a bittersweet series of events, her mother falls ill and her romance with Memphis immunologist Neil McLaren ubruptly ends in anger and tears.
Three long months later, as autumn sweeps into the Pacific Northwest, Juliette feels that shes finally on the cusp of equilibrium--the restaurant continues to thrive, and her family is closer than ever. She and sous-chef Adrien are seeing each other, both in and out of the kitchen. Just when she thinks her world might stop spinning, a trip to the waterfront brings a chance encounter with a familiar face from her past.
Rather than dwell on her personal life, Juliette throws herself into work and research. After reading her grandmothers letters from war-torn Paris, she still wants to know the full story-- and shell travel across countries and oceans to find it. But even Juliette cant outrun the man who stole her heart. As she finally uncovers the truth about her family history, what will it mean for her own search for love?

"Food writer Juliette DAlisa adores her temperamental trilingual family of restaurateurs, but she could do without their bossy skepticism of her online love interest whos so unlike them. Rainy, windy Portland has never felt quite as warm as it does when Juliette navigates long-distance romance, career decisions, and a genealogical mystery. A delectable tale from Hillary Manton Lodge, A Table by the Window includes recipes that are like a warm welcome to the DAlisa family table." Meg Moseley, author of Gone South and When Sparrows Fall
