My rating: ★★★★☆
This book was a gift from a friend, with a handwritten note wishing me a Merry Christmas.
It’s so lovely to be gifted books, especially with a note and it made me very happy!
Right from the beginning I was sold with this book, the lead character quits her job and bakes cheesecakes for a living!
I stormed through this book, there was a lot going on and it was funny, had an old-timely feel about it with its village settings and community feel and even a mystery to figure out.
I think it clashes in places though, the female character left her home and her city when she was humiliated that her lover (who was married) lied to her about his relationship with his wife. I think this is a horrible message to convey, he stayed in his job so why doesn’t she?
I think I just have issues with how authors decide to write their female characters, I blame reading all those books on feminism in uni it’s skewed my mind! But if you can look past this I would definitely recommend this book as my friend recommended it to me.
Thanks for reading ,
