Con Amore

Romance, a bit of suspense, the history of Italy, and numerous recipes combine to create a story about love, food, and life.

Meet Janine Fiori, Food Journalist and Cooking Instructor


Passionate about her work, Janine is thrilled when she receives an invitation to a weeklong conference on Italian food. For the past year, an exclusive contract to develop recipes for a prestigious Italian food producer has kept her busy and in the limelight. Janine also keeps busy researching and writing aboutanother passionher Italian heritage, and the food, culture, and history of Italy.


As she wonders about some of the chefs who may attend the conference, her mind drifts to a former lover and further back to recollections of a wedding that was to have been the start of her dream, but ended in disappointment.


The day of the opening night ceremony begins with anticipation and excitement about the conference, but the appearance of the one man who captured her heart brings a flood of memories and mixed feelings. Can Janine trust again and allow love back into her life or should she enjoy the attention of several new admirers?


The East End of Long Island sets the scene for Janine’s adventure of a culinary tour of Italy, a journey into her past, an exploration of her conflicting emotions, and discovering what holds the key to her heart.
