Twenty-seven Tiered Almond Cake – Book Review

 

Author Amber Laura has outdone herself with this incredible, fun novel about Charlie’s heroic attempt to plan her sister’s wedding.
Right from the start the reader is drawn into Charlie’s thoughts and feelings and despite the fact that she isn’t always entirely honest with herself, one mostly gets to know her weaknesses, her pain, her hopes and her fears through her interactions with other people.

I loved the witty dialogues supplemented by Charlie’s thoughts.
I loved the humorous note underlying the whole story – even at those points where Charlie opens up to Kantor, the creator of the mouthwatering almond cake (I demand a slice as recompensation for having to read about this heavenly cake without ever getting any!) and finally admits to her weak side (which made me cry while I was still smiling).

Editorial Review – The Necklace

 

Book title: The Necklace

Author: Lewis Horwitz

It is a common misconception that if you want to write a book, you have to come up with a fantastical plot which involves complex twists and turns, a dashing hero, and a spunky heroine and maybe a villainous character or two. But quite often it’s not about that at all. Writing is simply an external manifestation of your need to tell a story. It doesn’t have to be intricate; it just needs to be real. In this book, Lewis Horowitz does exactly that: he narrates two parallel stories of family, loss, and most of all, the transformative powers of true love.
