"Lodge has created yet another sumptuous storyfull of intrigue, humanity, tantalizing tastes, and true love, in its myriad forms. She gracefully leads us into kitchens, restaurants, and hearts, not to mention sensorial visits to France, Italy, and the tensions of WWII Paris. Poised on a knifes edge, Lodge left me yearning for her next story and for time in the kitchen to test some of her tempting recipes."

"Reservations for Two is a foodies delight, peppered with great dishes and references to European culinary landmarks. Lodges sparkling dialogue adds levity to the books more serious moments and kept me flipping pages well into the night. But fair warning…readers will be hard pressed to choose between turning to the next chapter and running to the kitchen to try one of the many delectable recipes."
Carla Laureano, RITA Awardwinning author of Five Days in Skye and London Tides
"Endearing, witty, delectable. Hillary Manton Lodges second installment in the Two Blue Doors series is as delicious as her first, even for a non-foodie like me! I especially appreciated the seamless transition from Juliettes current life and travels to her grand-mères WWII past, a captivating angle that added the perfect hint of mystery."
Melissa Tagg, author of From the Start
"Through a clutch of discovered letters, which I read as compulsively as did our heroine, Juliette DAlisa, and her large Franco-Italian family, we discover that circumstances can be as bitter as baking powder or as delightful as powdered sugar. Both, however, are required to produce the very best madeleines, as well as a deeply satisfying life. Reservations for Two is a touching, page-turning novel, which brings home that each day, no matter its troubles, can be filled with good things, especially chocolat et bisous, chocolate and kisses, if we freely offer them to those we love. I read, wanting happiness, ultimately, for the delightful Juliette, as much as she wanted it for everyone else. "
Sandra Byrd, author of Let Them Eat Cake

Though this story picks up where Lodges freshman novel A Table by the Window left off, this book easily stands alone as a do-not-miss treat! From the lavender fields of Provence to Paris, Memphis, and the Pacific Northwest; from recipes for Rosemary Fig Focaccia to Nasturtium and Spring Greens Salad; from the 1930s to the present…this novel is a delight for the senses, a trip through time and kitchens, far and near.
