It would take all of Jeannette Saincoeur's extraordinary culinary skill to tempt the tastebuds.

Review Lord Endicott's Appetite

Of this handsome world weary lord But it was a different matter when his rising lust for life m. 1802 The Napoleonic Wars The Treaty of Amiens between the United Kingdom and France ended the War of the Second Coalition Napoleon had allowed all but about 1000 of the most notorious migr s of the French Revolution to return to France And Jeannette Saincoeur found herself on the doorstep of Lord Julian Endicott she was the new French cookJulian had lost his wife in childbirth over a year ago He could not get over his intense grief and his servants were worried His sorrow had found a home within the sight taste and smell of food When possible he avoided eating and it was starting to take its toll Jeannette was a member of a previously important family that had lived in France She witnessed firsthand what the guillotine could do She then crossed the Channel to find a home in England under the guise of a chef This job was her last hope to earn enough money to support herselfWhat set this historical romance apart from so many others was that the hero had an eating disorder and it coincided with a form of depression It was referred to as melancholy and few people understood it The emotions both Julian and Jeannette experienced fit perfectly with the period and gave the reader something to ponder Another plus was as Jeannette enticed his lordship from his slump by rearranging furniture observing scenery and changing both food and drink to avoid a certain look or smell Julian favored her with kindness He appreciated Miss Sound Heart and started to ask her opinions He knew there was something special about the young woman and intended to draw her out At the same time Ms Fairchild built the conflict in a realistic way so that I understood why the heroine made most of the choices that she did Julian s older sister tried to interfere whenever possible and the HEA had some minor uirks but overall it was a heartwarming look at the social classes of England and how despair could affect anyone given half a chance
