4 and a half Stars. This is the second book I’ve read by Malla Duncan and it didn’t disappoint. A story of suspense, intrigue and murder, the novel is also outrageously funny. Malla’s genius use of description and wit moves the story along effortlessly and compels the reader to turn the pages. An underlining message of food and body-image is depicted to perfection with mockery and humour. Malla’s portrayal of characters, setting and events is outstanding. I look forward to reading more work from this author.
