    I got this originally because it was free for my Kindle I loved it, though The thing that caught my eye was that the main character takes a trip to New Zealand I ve always wanted to go there, and this book scratched a bit of that itch The story was decent as well, although there are a couple cultural tangents I could have done without The characters are unique and interesting.

    LOVED her writing style I was laughing out loud as I read at her narrative and dialogue As an ex pat, I identified with some of the themes in the book as I followed Rose on her journey to New Zealand to discover her mother s homeland I will definitely be looking into her other books.
