About the Book
For the last twelve years, more than half her life, Lainey Peterson has prepared to design, create, and produce quality chocolate bars. But when she discovers her chocolate internship at Switzerland’s prestigious Alpine Foods has been canceled, she vows to do whatever it takes to get to Chocolate.
Yves Claremont, a young, ambitious department chair, would sacrifice everything to rise to vice president at Alpine Foods and redeem his father’s name. Impressed with Lainey’s resume and charming determination, Yves offers her an internship in his Pet Care department, promising a recommendation for Chocolate if she does well.
Lainey is drawn to the enigmatic and passionate Yves Claremont. He cannot deny his growing attraction to her. But inter-office relationships are strictly forbidden by Alpine Foods, and a perceptive co-worker, jealous of Yves’ success, will undermine Yves and Lainey any way he can.
“Chocolate is more than understanding couvertures, Dutch processing, cleavage, undertones. Chocolate is extremely emotional. It carries nuances plain candy does not. You must discover which chocolate lights up your lover’s emotional center, the pleasure-seeking part of the brain.”
“How do you find out? By asking him?”
“Oh, no. Asking is for amateurs. First, I observe, learn something about him, know his tastes and dislikes. Then apply what I know to his personality. Nine times out of ten, I’m right about which is the favorite.”
Yves stepped closer, his eyes still on her, challenging her. “What would you predict is my favorite?”
Mlle Peterson met his stare. “You’re baiting me.”
“Perhaps.” Then tilted his head down and whispered. “Or perhaps I want to see how well you have been observing me.” He scrutinized her reaction.
“I’ve totally pegged you,” she said, not even hiding her confidence.
He cocked his head. “You think you know me?”
She thrust her chin upwards with confidence. “I know chocolate. And I’ve been on the streets with you for four days.”
“Then guess.” This would be entertaining.
“Well.” She stepped away from him, adopting an air of indifference. “Judging by the car you drive, your penchant for passion, and Merino wool suits, I’d guess Mandorie Noir?”
He blinked, unable to believe how accurate she was. She had been watching him.
If your favoured reading material is a compelling tale with a good sprinkling of relationships, imperfection, romance, and humour then The Swiss Mishap by Amey Zeigler is a must-read for you!
From the get-go there was so much happening in this comedic, wonderful tale of romance! The story was told from two different perspectives: those of Lainey and Yves.
I was totally smitten with both protagonists. Lainey was smart, passionate and she had an amazing zest for life. Yves was ambitious, persistent, but was sincere. I totally adored the spark between the two of them and it was beautifully written with a romantic, endearing tone. Author, Amey Zeigler had really worked wonders with all of the characters in this fabulous story and I grew very fond of most of them, although there were one or two that were less than desirable. All had brilliant parts to play and even the baddies only added a little salt to this sweet, sugary tale.
Aside from the brilliant cast of characters, another selling point of A Swiss Mishap for me was its fabulous setting of Switzerland. Although I have never been there, I have had a longing to visit for quite some time. Amey Zeigler had a magical, eloquent way of articulating the ambiance of the place, the surrounding area and the general way of life there. I was also entranced by the author’s portrayal of Lainey’s love for chocolate. It was fantastic reading how she associated it with so many fond memories and how she used chocolate as a security blanket to help her deal with the difficult times in her life.
The plot was awesome and moved along at a really comfortable pace and I loved the author’s general writing-style. There was no room for repetitiveness or boredom here! The story was funny and witty and there were many laugh-out-loud moments. I honestly can’t think of anything that dampened my enthusiasm for this fascinating tale.
I was rooting all the way through for Lainey and Yves, and Amey Zeigler rounded things off nicely which I really appreciated. It was very hard to say goodbye to them and I found myself wishing them well for the future.
I think this author is a force to be reckoned with and I am eagerly awaiting her next contribution. I recommend A Swiss Mishap without a flicker of hesitation, so don’t miss out!
I received a complimentary copy of this novel from Goddess Fish Promotions at my request and this review is my own unbiased opinion.
