really liked it
bookshelves: romance, historicalfiction, magicrealism

This book is totally over the top when it comes to romance and emotions and just about everything. But it's so over the top that I truly enjoyed it. The cooking and the love triangle are entertaining till the very end and you will love to hate the villainous mother. I feel at some times that the evil characters are a bit too dehumanized (even though it's deliberate, it doesn't sit completely right with me), but apart from that it is a fast and enchanting read.
