Assaulted Caramel by Amanda Flower

A clash of cultures and values between urban New Yorkers and rural Armish sensibilities.

This character driven plot eases the reader into a different world where the humanitarian qualities of fair play and kindness fight to survive despite our busy lives.

Flower’s light touches of humor and heavy emotional punches make an entertaining read.

I particularly enjoyed the six-year-long relationship between Bailey and her best friend and colleague, Cassandra Calbera, Cass for short, which illustrates how you can work shoulder-to-shoulder with someone believing you know them inside-out and then later discover miles of unknown territory.

Cass is a great foil for Bailey and together their conversations combine witty repartee and light relief from the somber business of the murder. Plus, when a writer can work both Scooby Doo and Sherlock Holmes into a story, you know you’re in gentle hands for a safe and satisfying summer read.
