Truffles by the Sea by Julie Carobini

It's New Book Tuesday and I'm so excited to tell you about the book I COULD NOT PUT DOWN this weekend, Truffles by the Sea, by Julie Carobini author of Chocolate Beach (which I posted about here).

This time we get to read about Gaby, best friend of Bri (last book's heroine) who is a little gun shy after her boyfriend went after her (married) best friend, her employee ripped her off and her apartment burned down. She will be gullible no more, or so she says. But complications keep piling up and Gaby's motto isn't enough to help her out. What's a girl to do (besides eat truffles)?

I have to tell you, again, that I couldn't put this book down. Which says a lot. I needed to get out of town on Friday and I kept finding myself sitting at the kitchen table, reading. (Don't you know that if you sit at the kitchen table it is almost like doing dishes? It only counts as slacking off I you sit in a comfy chair.)

If it is possible, I liked this book even better than Chocolate Beach which goes to show that sequels aren't necessarily always less than. 'Course it really isn't a sequel anyway, just another book set in the same town with some of the same characters but a focus on a different one.

So, I highly recommend this one for your spring break read. Especially if you like books that look good enough to eat. It might make you want to pick up a truffle or two, but really who doesn't want to do that anyway?

Way to go Julie!
