This review is from: Ripe for the Picking (Paperback)
Annie's style of writing makes this such an excellent read, she is honest, does not judge but, relates the situations so well that you are drawn in. The way people behave in any situation gives you all you need to know and enables you to decide how you feel about each of them. Annie writes with genuine affection particularly for people, however good or bad they may be, a gentle humour (of which she is often the butt) but above all honesty. Having read Extra Virgin I could not wait to read this one. I was not disappointed. In fact so far from it that I only hope there will be further tales of Annie's life in Italy. I was completely drawn into the world in which she now lives, and can't help feeling I know everyone in it. Finishing this book is like leaving a group of old friends and not knowing when you will see them again. I cannot imagine anyone who has read Extra Virgin not wishing to read this book.
