About The Swiss Mishap
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.
I’ve never read a book quite like this one. I loved everything about it! The characters, the plot, the setting, and most importantly, the chocolate, all were fantastic!
In the first chapter we meet Lainey. She’s optimistic and just thrilled about her internship in Chocolate at Alpine Foods in Switzerland. But, unfortunately, her internship in Chocolate fell through. And she had no idea. Lainey is adaptable, and that’s one of the fun things about her. I had to laugh at her struggles in the first few chapters. She has none of her things due to a luggage mix-up. The language and culture barrier are another issue. And the man who ends up her boss…he drives her crazy!
But chocolate is always there for Lainey, and she applies it liberally. There were many times in Switzerland when the situation just seemed right for more chocolate.
I love that you also see the events through the eyes of Yves, Lainey’s boss in Pet Care. That’s where she ended up when her internship in Chocolate fell through. So funny! There were so many laugh out loud moments in the relationship between Lainey and Yves.
The plot of this one is a lot of fun! Who doesn’t want to read about working for a chocolate company? It’s a book you definitely want to read for yourself!
I was sent an e-copy of The Swiss Mishap as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
