I agree with most of what has been said in the previous reviews. I actually decided to give it a read because I have some South African friends. I was able to get them to interpret the local language. A light read with a loving & soft feel that was pleasant to experience. Well done Sally Andrew.

I picked this one up by name. I enjoy mysteries and in a foriegn country I thought I would also learn new things. This is true, including learning some Africaan which is scattered liberally throughout (I kept a translation app open for that). I liked the characters. I enjoyed the sdifferent cultural feeling, however, there is a component of PTSD and a group sharing their experiences as a healing process. The vivid descriptions, through the stories told, of terrorism, torture, and death were very hard to read. I know these things are real, but one isn't often faced wiht an individual character relating their own story so graphically and so painfully. Be aware

What a wonderful surprise this book was! I read murder mysteries - they are my go-to-bed-relaxers. I generally read cozys or, at least, women (not so likely to be gory). Just grabbed this off the shelf -woman, humorous cover - okay. It is a treat on so many levels - language, culture, food/recipes and most of all - the psychology of it all --- pure magic.
