"A tasty blend of romance, mystery and french cooking" - Margaret Atwood. Well, who wouldn't want to devour this book after such a recommendation?
Sometimes books have a quality of beauty and even if the story has some loose bits or the characters aren‘t as complete as they could be, the beauty is something to savor. This one has left me hungry and wishing I could jet off to the South of France....

Finally back on my porch reading. Alternating between this book and Hidden Figures. (With non fiction I always have an alternative book). Doubt if I will finish either but its been relaxing to squeeze reading in when I can this weekend.
#LitsyPartyofOne #leftbookincar. #ReadingTotal80pages Had my book with me, but Did not read much yesterday due to Hartford City Football game- and tailgating. Totally new culture for me; feeling my way. A wonderfully welcoming, inclusive group. Plan to eventually find readers there- ❤️📚#HartfordCityFC #AgentsofHaleCT.
Beginning #LitsyPartyofOne after a wonderful family day trip to Roseland Cottage, Woodstock, CT. Fabulous gardens, "cottage" gothic revival- a piece of CT history I had no knowledge of; Henry Bowen, instrumental, behind scenes funding for Lincoln's election. Four presidents visited overnight there. In the family until 1968 so furniture etc. intact. So great end to my day! wine, popcorn, reading ???
I totally enjoyed this book despite the fact Picasso? Kind of an asshat! Lol! But it's historical fiction and despite that description, Picasso was endearing (how does that happen?). The story is really the lives of two women. A grandmother and granddaughter who never met but share a connection.

Surprised I enjoyed it as much as I did. Although fairly predictable, I was caught up in the adventure. Interesting take on Picasso. Two time periods--grandmother & granddaughter. Light summer read; solid 3 stars. Audio (read by Mozhan Marno) was nicely done.
