One Enchanted Evening: From the #1 bestselling author of uplifting feel-good fiction
About this deal
Everything is going rather well, with the Nightingale Woods' team pulling together like a little family, until the arrival of Andrew's son Justin, who has very firm ideas about what should be happening at the hotel while his father is away.

Having been born in the 60’s a lot of things reminded me of my young days, no bathroom’s indoors, I remember staying in hotels when on holiday as we were growing up and none of them had en suite facilities.
I especially adored Ambrosine - she has such a big heart that you can't help but root for her throughout the novel.
All things considered, One Enchanted Evening by Katie Fforde is an exceptional novel that should be read by all lovers of romance fiction books! I think I have read pretty much all of Katie Fforde's books, and though this wasn't my favourite, it was still an easy read. Not good - I used to enjoy some Katie Fforde crafted escapism as a guilty pleasure, and would devour her books on beaches. End her relationship with Ryan, especially as through the window of the café, she spies a waiter who looks much more like her type of man. Grumpy/sunshine is usually a win for me but this one has missed the mark with me as it just didn’t hook me.
The hotel known as Nightingale Woods is old fashioned but charming, though it needs serious updating. But then unfortunately it’s a dose of reality of what women faced back then, especially those aspiring to work in kitchens – ironic when ‘the woman should do the cooking in the house’.This is the third book set in the 1960s loosely based around a group of young middle-class women who attended a cookery class in London. I loved watching Meg, together with help of her mum, the staff (who are just as invested) and her friends, breathe new life into the hotel.

I absolutely adored this book as much as the previous instalments that helped us navigate through the ongoing lives of this trio of novice cooks.Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item.

Meg has been interning in London restaurants and has managed to get some good experience, despite the endemic sexism of the time. Even though I really liked Meg, I think Ambrosine has to be my favourite character, I could just sit down with a cup of tea and listen to her for hours without complaint or getting bored of her tales. Justin is arrogant, patronising and sexist, and while I know those attitudes where (and still are) prevalent, this made him a much harder character to like as the book progresses. I’m also a sucker for any book that has a good enemies-to-lovers romance, and this one certainly delivered with the bumpy road to love between Meg and Justin. A joy to read from start to finish, I was transported from the grey February skies of Sheffield to the summer sun of Dorset.A Wedding in the Country is about Lizzie, A Wedding in Provence is about Alexandra and One Enchanted Evening is about Meg.
