Keyes at her very best - honest observations of life which kept me laughing - shame it wasn't six inches thick!
An Embarrassment of Mangoes: A Caribbean Interlude by Ann Vanderhoof
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Escapism, 14 Nov 2006
Anyone familiar with the caribbean or indeed caribbean cuizine will love this book. It tells the story of a couple sailing off to the caribbean during a year off from normal life. Although, not a sailor (yet) I fell in love with the life. Obviously, the couple are real foodies and the recipes and details of ingredients were fab. Great all round book.

I discovered this author during a 3 week holiday in the caribbean. I had not heard of him until then and picked up this book as a swap in an Antigua hotel library. What a find, set in the Everglades it's a really, really funny thriller. I've now bought more books by him and I'm looking forward to reading them. I think they're all set in Florida so anyone who has been there and is now back in the good old UK snuggling down on dark evenings will appreciate this lift. What a funny man! He also writes childrens books.
