What started out as a very enjoyable and witty story, ended up becoming a very distasteful foray into bad cryptic sex. Without giving up anything, the wonderful characters in a very interesting apartment building and delicious sounding recipes eventually are overshadowed by something that should have faded to black. I am no prude, but yuck! And no thanks! Won't try another.

Absolutely love this book and series. Corinna Chapman is such a strong character and a great role model for women. She's fat (her word), but happy and unapologetic about it. The storyline is cohesive and entertaining. It's a well written novel filled with lovable and hateable people. I read some review on Amazon and one reader whose main objection was the 'smug' tone of the character and implausibility of Daniel falling in love with a woman like Corinna (ie. a fat woman). I wonder if this reviewer would think the same if this protagonist didn't weigh 100kg. With so much happening in the book, the author could have run the risk of creating a disjointed story, but Kerry Greenwood has a light but firm handle on all the elements and succeeds in weaving a really good start for this series.
