INK BY AMANDA SUNPAPER GODS VOL 1
A wonderful change of scenery with a dive into the manners, tales and legends of Japan that suddenly are awaken to light. Refreshing, exciting and poetic, this book blew me away.
I liked the supernatural scenes, the fighting ones against the ink, as much as the real fights in Shizuoka's streets and parcs. A beautiful novel that won me over.

HOPELESS BY COLLEEN HOOVER
The plot is powerful and tragic. Words are inventive. Emotions are striking. The characters are intriguing with all their secrets. But I was swept off my feet by the rightness of the different reactions and emotions. The mix of vulnerability and strength that echoes the reality of every human being and that the author has been very successfully transcribe.

Do you really know how you would handle it? Are you sure? What would you do—what could you do if your first love, the guy that taught you everything about love came back into your life? What if he never really left? You married someone else, you have kids, you made the good and moral decision to be faithful, to move on. But this guy is always there for you when you need him the most, and he is so deeply embedded in your heart and soul, there is no saying no. Can you love two people with complete passion? Do you feel something must be missing somewhere? Maybe not. Sacred Sin, a modern, racy love story lets you decide what is right or wrong, because Jenny can’t.
CHAMPAGNE: THE FAREWELL BY JANET HUBBARD
A detective story who match up to the sparkling bubbles of Champagne, a subtle and precious golden nectar where the action takes place.In a very closed provincial bourgeoisie, the author managed to portray an heavy atmosphere of envy, jealousy and secrets conducive to commit a crime.A credible novel, well documented, in which the reader really feels to be in the heart of the action.
The last time I was in France I wanted to pick up a copy of Papillon. Being (a) a cheapskate and (b) a flea market addict who loves to chiner, I looked all over for a copy but couldn't find anything. One vendor tried to tell me that a lot of the book had been made up, but I said, so what, it's still a great adventure novel.
Finally on the Left Bank in a huge bookstore I picked up a brand new copy. I like to read Zola and detective tales of Rouletabille. Voilà, c'est tout pour aujourd'hui.
When elderly millionaire Goldberg gets ready to remarry, it’s only natural he should book Le Merle Blanc, the finest restaurant in the city, for his wedding and reception.
Unfortunately most of his family is against the marriage. Most of the bride's family is against the marriage…and most of his employees are against the marriage too.
There’s a lot at stake here, not just unrequited love and mistrust, but the future of a company and millions of dollars. When Goldberg drops dead during his luncheon, his personal doctor declares it a natural death. The man had a very bad heart, the stress of the wedding itself...he drank too much whiskey and smoked too many cigars…and along with his nitro pills he’d been popping Viagra…(!)
But Chef Blanc, he has the nose, and the nose he smells the foul play. Chef Blanc calls the police. They come, but the coroner agrees that the doctor is probably right. Pending an autopsy, Goldberg's death appears to be perfectly natural.
But wait! To murder a man in his restaurant during a repast he has personally overseen, ah...this is an insult Chef Blanc cannot tolerate. To see justice done, he has to put on his apron right now and cook a killer’s goose, but can he keep the police and some forty guests in his restaurant long enough to prove that his famous nose never errs?
Impeccable, vous me direz !
