It took a few pages for me to get a hold on the writing style. Something about it made me need to reread sentences because I had often missed things. This was not a book that I could have rushed through. I would recommend this to someone who likes descriptive writing with plenty of adjectives to chew on. I normally do not enjoy overly detailed description, although I feel like there was a fair balance with plot here. I probably minded the description even less because of the passages detailing the chocolate. Holy Mother of Truffles.
Yeah, that's not me. The things you can pull up on Google....
Anyhow, I thought this book was lovely. I'll be searching for Harris' other books. Three stars.
