Mirror writing on the cover grabbed my attention and set the tone for the book. (Unlike some cover designs it accurately reflected the story.) I can't say that I found Paradise laugh-out-loud funny, but it was both entertaining and intriguing. I would classify it as a must read twice novel because so many things are not what they seem first time round. I look forward to the sequel to see what the characters get up to next. Will there be constant creation of chocolate?
