Whoever started the 'interfering female' trope in m/m romance should be shot. An overly interfering stranger is the premise of this story and even though it's handled better than most it still grated every time the character was on page. The first person POV didn't really engage me this time. It kind of had a travelogue feel, similar to those books like [b:Under the Tuscan Sun|480479|Under the Tuscan Sun|Frances Mayes|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320524083s/480479.jpg|940760], where the MC goes to a beautiful European town and the traditions and the food change his life. I'm surprised I didn't like it more but I just didn't feel any emotions while I was reading it.
