APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The first in Daisy James’ Paradise Cookery School series introduces us to heartbroken Michelin-starred chef Millie Harper, who leaves London (and memories of her recent break-up) to set up a cookery school on the hilltops of St. Lucia. But the new venture brings complications: progress is slower than she’d hoped, cocoa pods keep going missing and the handsome estate manager, Zach, irritates her. But as Millie and Zach attempt to work together to ensure the school will be ready for their first students, their chemistry starts simmering. With its idyllic island setting, the sumptuous descriptions of Millie’s cooking and a slow-burning romance, you’ll not want Sunshine and Secrets to end.
