Sweet Salt Air by Barbara Delinsky
Sweet Salt Air by Barbara Delinsky
5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Salt Air, 18 Oct 2013
Sweet Salt Air is a beautifully written, thought provoking book.

When two friends get together on the island where they spent their childhood summers to write a recipe book, all kinds of secrets are revealed.

The setting is idyllic, the storyline has enough twists to keep you reading - but is also predictable enough to be comfortable and I fell in love with the characters. It's interesting to see how the author decided each character would react in the difficult scenarios that develop.

All in all, a lovely read which I didn't want to finish - and now that it has, I don't want to start another book just yet!

After finding the Beijing and Hong Kong versions of this book incredibly helpful, I decided to buy this one when I went to Berlin.

Now, Berlin is quite a complicated place, so it's not really the book's fault that it's not as straight forward as the other two, but we found it to be quite difficult to know which section to look in, and the recommendations in each section weren't as helpful as I would have liked.

However, the insert pocket map is incredibly useful! It has a metro map, a map of the city, and a couple of "Top 10 to do" in different categories, so with children, on a budget, for lunch etc.

I would definitely recommend visiting Berlin, but would… Read more
