In My Own Words:
And now I've discovered Ebooks….Book reviews. Honest but never bashing. Love to read, almost all genres (don't want to restrict myself too much and have in the past discovered great books that way), apart from religious and classical.

Bengali Five Spice Chronicles by Rinku Bhattacharya

Having tried a lot of Indian cooking before, I was intrigued by this book. The cover appealed to me straight away. I liked the fact that it did not show a cooked dish, but cute little pots with the spice mixes, underlining the fact that the spices will play a main part in the book. And it made it stand out for me from the crowd of the other cooking books on the book shop shelves. If you are into cooking with spices, you know straight away that you are right here.

After the first paragraph, I knew I would love Peppa Grove, and had to read on. A bargain kettle from a market stall. Yep, that would be me, and who doesn't love a bargain. Peppa felt like a friend to me straight away.

And she chats to her cat.

But do not let the cat in the title fool you - this is no cosy cat and her owner story, this has a lot more bite to it. Her cat is clearly talking to her. And, of course, whenever others… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Vic and Laura, 19 Aug 2014
The good thing about books in a series is that you are firstly already know most of the characters and their background stories, so you don't have the first few chapters 'oh I wish I could understand what is going on here'. Also, you are already used to the authors writing style, and this gets you right back in into the story. My own view is that this book can stand-alone, though it is recommended that you do read the books in order and certainly read the prequel.

All our favourite characters are back. This is book 2 in the Love under Construction Series, and the main focus of this book is the relationship developing relationship between Vic and Laura. Though the other characters… Read more
