Once Upon a Tablecloth

Once Upon a Tablecloth


Nick Jordan acquires failing restaurants, then makes them prosperous. But when Lily Mercer calls him for help, he didn't count on falling in love. Or that someone wants to kill her.

And with so many obstacles and threats, can she survive? Can their love? (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)

Please note: I received a free copy of this book courtesy of the publisher and I voluntarily chose to write a review.


This was a fun read although I found the beginning romance a little predictable.  There was definitely instant love although Lily second-guessed herself left and right throughout that.  I can understand that, but seemed to get so worked up and then immediately forgive which bothered me a bit.  The mysterious twist I definitely loved being worked into the story.  That aspect made the story stand out a bit more than a “standard romance” and I liked how the ending turned out.

I particularly liked that Lily had to decide for herself what her priorities were going to be rather than sacrificing everything for the sake of the relationship.  Towards the end Lily and Nick develop a real partnership.  All in all this was a fun read that I’d certainly say was enjoyable!

Warning: Repeated sexual content.

Rating: 3 stars!

Who should read it? Romance fans looking for something with a bit of an unpredictable twist at the end.
