Crystal Cove

Book cover illustrated with a woman looking across the water

Well you can imagine our surprise when we were getting emails last week telling us that Coho was famous. I am not sure that this really qualifies as being famous, but here is how the story goes:

New York Times bestselling author, Lisa Kleypas’ latest book, Crystal Cove, is set in Friday Harbor. The main character, Justine Hoffman, has made a comfortable life for herself as the proprietor of a successful boutique hotel in town. What Justine soon discovers is that someone cast a spell on her when she was born, so that she will never find her soul mate. Determined to change her fate, Justine finds a way to break the enchantment, never dreaming of the dangerous complications that will follow. And when Justine meets the mysterious Jason Black, she accidentally unleashes a storm of desire and danger that threaten everything she holds dear.

Throughout the fictional story, the characters chose to dine at “Coho Restaurant, a converted Craftsman House that seats only a handful of tables. They both ordered halibut sheathed in potato crust and doused with chardonnay cream sauce, accented with the crackle of fried basil leaves. They enjoyed the perfectly prepared food.”

We are delighted to be featured in the book and we can surely promise a small intimate restaurant, fresh halibut and perfectly prepared food.
