It was a little too slow of a slow burn. However, once it took off, I could not put it down. Overall, I thought it was brilliant and I'm glad I finally read it, but I didn't love it and almost DNF'd.

How I loved this one! Think Rachel Joyce‘s The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and Kathleen Rooney‘s Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk, with a bit of Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal.

Jenny is 77 years old, loves to bake, loves her husband of nearly 60 years Bernard, and has a secret. She also impulsively applies to be on a British baking competition. The story weaves between past and present through her recipes. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Librarybelle ⬆️⬆️⬆️It‘s a story about love, sacrifice, and finding oneself, no matter how old you are. It‘s a remarkable debut novel by Ford, who seems to capture so much emotion and can evoke so many feelings through Jenny‘s stories. Family recipes have power. Have tissues at the ready for this one. #192025 #2024 #52BookClub24 #Publishedin2024 1d

Haven't read a book that had me sobbing like a baby in quite a while; ahhh, that felt good.

Just started this. Was on #audiobook #MountTBR for quite some time, bought purely because of the cover. Reading it for #52bookclub24 now, prompt: 38 - Published by Hachette (Headline imprint).

I really enjoyed this debut historical romance/fantasy with a bit of a steampunk feel and a nice faith-filled atmosphere as well. Taking place in 1860 London, Clara Marie Stanton has always felt responsible for shielding/protecting her lovable but eccentric (some might say insane) family, and she has devoted herself to that end. Her beloved grandfather, a clockmaker and inventor of a flying owl machine, decides to take a flying adventure through🔽

robinb Europe in the hopes of encouraging Clara to step outside of her self-imposed familial duties and search for him via a scavenger hunt. Along with her grandfather‘s new apprentice Theodore and her mother, she sets off on a myriad of adventures and along the way learns more about herself and what she would like out of life. Of course there‘s a villain out to steal the machine to provide some suspense, but the real stars here are the Stanton family 🔽 1w
robinb and their unique and tight-knit love for each other and all their idiosyncrasies.
Clara and Theodore are charming and lovely and the kind of feel-good characters that you just want to hug and hang out with.

Very well done, and I‘m looking forward to more from this author. 4.5/5⭐️

Making Naan while listening to the tagged #audiobook. I blame @squirrelbrain's review, because I wanted to ignore the book because of the social media aspect. I'm glad I read the review and put the book on #MountTBR. Just took me an age to get to it, as usual.

The narration is 👩🏻‍🍳😘

squirrelbrain It was good wasn‘t it?! What have you been making? 1w
julesG @squirrelbrain The book was great. I'm glad I gave it a chance. The audiobook had a Q&A with Yomi and the female narrator at the end, which was about where the idea came from and why Yomi branched out writing fiction. Today's dish is butter chicken and naan. Again 🙄🙄🙄. Seems like the kids can't get enough of it. 1w
squirrelbrain Yummy! I used to make butter chicken in the slow cooker, but haven‘t done it for ages - might have to make it again soon. 1w

The writing was terrible. I had to keep rereading sentences because they just didn't make sense. Took hours just to get to page 18. #HailTheBail

On a positive note: I got a second bingo on my January #BookSpinBingo board 😁 @TheAromaofBooks
