London E17, 2019. A yellow kitchen stands as a metaphor for the lifelong friendship between three women: Claude, the baker, goal-orientated Sophie and political Giulia. They have the best kind of friendship, chasing life and careers; dating, dreaming and consuming but always returning to be reunited in the yellow kitchen.
That is, until a trip to Lisbon unravels unexplored desires between Claude and Sophie. Having sex is one thing, waking up the day after is the beginning of something new.
I really enjoyed this short read, we meet three friends who all different in their own right but make the perfect friendship together. They all have their own lives but they always meet up in the yellow kitchen which has become a hub of activities and secrets shared. The story explores friendship, love and food. They go to Lisbon together and things get steamy between Claude and Sophie but can it be the start of something or should friends never cross that line? It was a complex and engaging story and a perfect book to read in one sitting.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
