Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Women’s Fiction, Literature/Fiction (Adult)
I’m a bit on the fence with this read. I didn’t really feel drawn in to the book, feel the characters and situations were real.
I felt Valerie and Naveed were together as much for convenience that for love. I just didn’t feel that pull between them, that tension and edginess that sparks in a new relationship, and somehow they just seemed to drift into living together. I did like the descriptions of recipes and Iranian culture, and they way that East and West mix, with some unintentional difficulties caused by lack of cultural understanding. When Naveed’s mother comes on an open-ended stay that was interesting, seeing how Valerie tries to make her welcome but at the same time wonders when she’s going. then gradually Goli becomes part of the family, in that she just becomes part of their everyday life and not the visitor she first was.
Overall though it was a story I could pick up and put down easily, one I enjoyed but wouldn’t re read.
Stars: Three, a one off read for me

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
