We're reading contemporary romances with a slightly magical twist in them for July.
In Anjali Banerjee's Invisible Lives, sari-maker Lakshmi Sen has an uncanny ability to read people's emotions. Her father's dying wish is for Lakshmi to marry a respectable Indian doctor and she intends to honor the wish. But there is the cute chauffeur of her new client...
Invisible Lives is not part of any series.
In Laura Florand's The Chocolate Kiss, Magalie Chaudron and her witchy aunts stir wishes into the cups of chocolat chaud and tea they serve their customers in their small pastry shop. Only Magalie's refuge is threatened when the Prince of Pastries sets up shop on their small island within Paris. Philippe Lyonnais is determined to win Magalie over and their battle of delicious treats quickly turns into something deeper.
The Chocolate Kiss is the second in the series, though they do not need to be read in order.
Note about the location: Because our regular scheduled meeting is on the 4th (when the library will be closed), we discussed an alternate location/time for our July meeting. We will be having their weekend lunch buffet and discussing the book. Find out more about Sitar at http://www.sitar-indiancuisine.com/index.html
