But nearly the first thing April discovers is that Marc Thorne, the guy who all but left her at the altar eight years ago, is back from California and will be her boss if she wins the job (thanks, Aunt Kitty). Shortly after that April discovers that Ramón Galvez, the guy who interviewed her mere hours before, is dead. It doesn’t take long for the gossip-mongers to decide that he didn’t die of natural causes. And when attention turns to Marc as having both the means and the motive to see Ramón dead, April has to decide whom she believes.
It doesn’t help that Marc doesn’t want to talk about those missing eight years. But the old magnetism is strong, and she just can’t believe he did it even when the evidence mounts up. But if he didn’t, who did? And who will believe them?
Thyme for Love explores the concept of forgiveness along with a classic amateur sleuth tale and a contemporary romance told in first person. I loved Pedro the parrot, the gossiping gals in the back room, and the glamorous kitchen April works in–to say nothing of wishing I could taste a few of her well-described treats!
