Mehso-so

I enjoyed almost every part of this book.....except our MC. She was too timid, too wishy washy, too hypocritical; too everything not great. The rest of her family and all the other characters were great. Also, I greatly want a currant roll and a hot ginger tea now. But seriously, I'll definitely read book 2 to see if she gets better as the series goes on.

The Spice Isle Bakery Mysteries are off to a great start with Against the Currant. The characters are unique and interesting as is the setting of the Little Caribbean neighborhood in Brooklyn.
