A sweet, gentle Tom Robbins-with-toned-down-sexuality readalike, this author grows on me with her slightly magical tales which are also strong on ethnic sensitivity. In Jeanne de Flambeaux, youngest daughter of an accomplished family of chefs, we encounter an endearing main character who is initially an underconfident and somewhat troubled young woman with issues. Plenty of them. She cannot cook. She is weird. She hears voices - or specifically one coming from the family heirloom crystal skull. Part mystery, part journey of self discovery, this buldingsroman is flavoured with food, interesting characters, a little intrigue, the same of romance, settings on both sides of the Rio Grande, no vampires but rather a brujeria kind of magic. A book to recommend to teens and young-at-heart adults. A satisfying quick read which is uplifting, a touch funny and not too saccharine at all.
