A story about best friends, childhood dreams, and the healing power of Chinese food…

Toni Lau and Dion Chan were connected from birth – first via their parents' jointly–owned restaurant, then via their bone–deep friendship. But children grow up, and Toni leaves their sleepy hometown looking for more than it can offer.

Now Toni is back, raw with the knowledge that not all childhood dreams come true. Dion is on the brink of realising that both his own ambitions and his childhood friend have the power to derail all of his hard work. But loving Toni – and winning her love in return – has always been on his wish list. Can Dion really put her on the back burner while frying up his chef dreams? Or is it possible that together they can come up with a recipe for happiness?

Reviewed by: Tiffany Book provided by: Author Review originally posted at Romancing the Book Short Soup by Coleen Kwan is the tale of two childhood friends who reconnect after many years and continents apart. I chose this book because the premise of a divorced woman returning home and the friends-to-lovers storyline. I also chose Short Soup because of the ethnic background and the chance to gain some insight into the Asian culture. Toni Lau and Dion Chan’s parents were business partners in an Asian restaurant located in Piper Bay, Australia. Toni had left Piper Bay to pursue a career as a CPA in London. Over the course of five years, she was married and divorced and decided to move back home to reevaluate her life. Dion has also recently moved back home after living in Hong Kong so he could manage their parent’s restaurant. Toni and Dion cross paths and their chemistry is off the charts. Dion cannot believe that he is still in love with Toni after all of these years. He has sworn off distractions as he is focused on the restaurant. Toni has absolutely no idea that Dion has been in love with her since before they left for college, but she now finds him attractive in a romantic way and this confuses her. There were many aspects of Short Soup that I really enjoyed. I can truly appreciate being able to gain some insight into Chinese familial relationships and to see the differences between the families. I also was a fan of the friends-to-lovers storyline as it was believable that the characters were confused about their feelings. Short Soup by Coleen Kwan is a short and very enjoyable read!
