About this ebook

I’m not sure what I’m more scared of—cats that drool or falling for that annoying history professor in my Italian cooking course.

Sure, Preston Whitaker has amazing blue eyes, but he’s an arrogant know-it-all, just like my ex. I can’t stand the man. And now I’m stuck with him for the next four weeks in Italy.

If you gave me a choice between snuggling with a drooling cat or with Preston, I’d choose the cat in a heartbeat.

Or would I?

Did I mention how cute Preston is?

Maybe I should have a holiday romance with him. That would be okay, right? It could be a fun diversion. Then, once I leave Italy, I’ll never have to see that pretentious jerk again.

Just one teeny-tiny problem—I think I might be falling for him big time. Will I be able to say goodbye to him when the cooking course is over?

Smitten with Ravioli is a standalone romantic comedy with a happily ever after ending that you’ll swoon over. If you like steamy-clean romance with plenty of goofy humor, Italian food, and the occasional drooling cat, you’ll love Ginny & Preston’s story!

First the disclaimer. I was given an ARC version of this book. I would have bought it anyways after having read Ellen Jacobson's cozy mystery series expecting more of Jacobson's cleverness and laughs. My expectations were exceded. The book was fun, witty, full of amusing surprises, and old fashion romance with PG kisses that occasionally get just a little bit steamy. And besides all that there is food and travel. I'm ready to hop on a plane to Italy right now. I can smell that ravioli simmering!

Smitten with Ravioli is the first book in the Smitten with Travel Romantic Comedy Series and is a fantastic start to this new series. This author has brought her fun and humourous writing from her cozy mysteries to this new sweet romance series. This is a delight to read and I am looking forward to reading more books in this series. The characters are well developed, interesting, and likable. The storyline is well crafted and grabbed my attention from the start and kept it until the end, with humour, sarcasm, a secret, personal issues, Italian food, and a sweet romance. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
