A lovely light read - perfect for the summer holidays. The narrator had something of a jarring accent.

I was drawn to this book by a perceived unique relationship that would develop between two women separated by age and culture but united in their passion for food. I was let down. I did listen to the entire book hoping it might pull through before the end but no. Having said that, it does not contain smut or foul language and served me well as something to fall asleep to as there was no chance of missing anything important in the story. Very glad to have finished it and it reminded me of why I generally stay away from this genre.
This book was an enjoyable listen when it came to the storyline.
However, it was somewhat ruined by the narrator who insisted on (was told to?) giving the Italian characters an English with an Italian accent. Firstly, they wouldn't have been speaking English anyway, so why do it with an accent. It makes the listener wonder wether the producer thinks he is too stupid to understand the character is Italian without having a stumbling accent glued on. Secondly, the accent wasn't very good. If you can't roll your r's or pronounce names correctly in Italian, it's better to drop the attempt. I'd prefer this book (and also the narrator) without the silly accent.
