Name that Tune
So what did I pick... Let's see if you can guess after this:
Read a book with a "Food" word in the title...
Back when this series was first published (four books, I have them all) I had the best of intentions of reading them because they all pretty much focus/have (or at least from initial appearances) kick ass/save the day type heroines.
I really liked this book. I would plant in firmly in the Urban Fantasy genre (there is a romance - a really good one but it's more of a side note- at least for me it was).
Both Holly and Alessandro shine here as characters. Holly is definitely a kick ass heroine but there a touch of sadness to her. Alessandro is a yummy hero.
I did find the ending a tad predictable but there was still a sense of freshness to this book.

Sadly, this book IS NOT available in any e-book format that I could find and I could only find it for sale from third party vendors on your usual bookstore sites. I apologize for that as I TRY to make sure anything I pick is easily/readily available.
