Jennifer Corbett commented on 15/04/2020: I enjoyed this story even though it was challenging at times. The book looks at some of the reasons for suicide and methods. It raises questions about euthenasia and what can be found on the internet

New comment on The flavours of love / https://stratford.library.org.nz/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber=96651#comments By Koomson, Dorothy,.

London : Quercus, 2013 . 440 p. ; 24 cm..

Jennifer Corbett commented on 29/03/2020: I would not recomend this book as relaxing easy reading. This book covers a wide of serious issues including murder/ grief. Teenage pregnancy, pedophilia, stalking and harassment, bulimia and anorexia and inlaw conflict. I gave up reading the book page by page from about the middle of the book and just skipped through to the end. Personally just found it too disturbing to have all these issues in one story and didn't enjoy it at all.

Kath Copeland commented on 20/06/2019: You'd be forgiven for thinking this is The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency transferred to Sweden. What is gentle and quirky in Botswana is downright tedious in Scandinavia!

Lynne Walker commented on 20/11/2017: Once again Katie FForde delighted me with a fine romance and interesting details of a midwifes profession. Romance in the highlands and a life aboard a boat touring the coast of Scotland. just the read for a summers afternoon. Lynne

Margaret Guy commented on 26/10/2017: great book and so up to date cannot wait to read the next two books as butterfly on the storm is the first book of a triology and the ending of his first book leaves you wondering what has happened
