Book Review: You had me at Halloumi by Ginger Jones

Flora Butterly is competing for the Golden Spoon – a Masterchef/ Bake off style competition featuring only Cypriot food. This is such a fun beach read. I felt like I was in sunshine myself. I also felt very, very hungry. I had to keep stopping to have a snack.

I liked that Flora was so relatable. I also liked that the story touched on kids who have been carers and what it’s like to look after someone who has schizophrenia. These elements were touched on only lightly, but it was good that they were there.

The food descriptions were amazing. The mystery as to which of the other contestants was the saboteur was very good.
All in all, this was a fun read. I look forward to reading more books in the series.
