The title of this book should have been "Just One More Chapter".
That is exactly how I treated it the previous two nights...and stayed up way past late-o-clock. Instead, I settled in this afternoon between lunch and baseball to finish it off.
Was this book GOOD! I thought the author was very creative by writing two parallel stories. Every few chapters, the storyline would alternate between the character Celine in modern times, and her grandma Ondine in the 1930s through the second half of the 1960s. It intertwined the two stories, with Celine's desire to find out her family history moving the story to Ondine's also being written in the present tense. Mystery and intrigue, romance and love, this book has it all. And, in spite of the title, not a recipe to be seen!
