Forbidden Fruit Let me preface this by saying I LOVE books with crazy religious aspects This one is EXCELLENT I still measure them all against Earthly Delights which was superb, but this comes a close

EXCELLENT I still measure them all against Earthly Delights which was superb, but this comes a close second to being my favourite in the series Following Corinna and Daniel as they try to solve the mystery of the missing pregnant teen and do battle with militant vegan hussies was a really enjoyable experience I HATED Sarah the vegan because she used Jason and tried to feed everybody something that was not only in contradiction with her vegan ideology but absolutely appalling and probably the most horrendous act of militant protest against the eating of meat I ve ever encountered The contrast with the Manny and Birdget aspect of the plot was excellent, two major storylines woven together like they were meant to be told alongside each other The whole religious zealot thing with Bridget s family OH MY GOD Pardon the pun Excellent book, I m starting the next, but I really don t want the series to end It s hot, very hot indeed in Melbourne in the week before Christmas and baker

the Christmas season This lighthearted romp with its feel good ending will have you smiling too Corinna Chapman, owner of Earthly Delights, detests Christmas The shoppers are frantic and the heat

donkey named Serena, a maniacal mother with staring eyes, a distracted assistant searching for the perfect muffin recipe, her friend the fearless witch Meroe, and the luscious Daniel with whom she d like to spend a lot timeBut Daniel is on the hunt to find two young runaways, Brigid and Manny This simple Romeo and Juliet romance though is not as straightforward as it seems and they will go a long way to ensure they re not found When Corinna and Daniel find that Brigid is on the streets, heavily pregnant and in danger, the stakes riseWith the help of a troupe of free spirited freegans, some very clever internet hackers and a bunch of vegans, Corinna and Daniel go head to head with a sinister religious cult on a mission and a group of Romany out for revenge in a wild and wonderful chase

is one of her Corinna Chapman contemporary series, a lighthearted romp with some eccentric characters and hilarious plots I ve read all of them and consider them what I call great flu books Just the thing to read when depressed, stressed or stuck in bed with a disgusting cold or the flu Kerry Greenwood has a lovely Australian way with words, a real Aussie wit, and a way of poking fun at the established order of things She also likes to see how far she can go and still carry her readers with her Christmas, a pregnant runaway and how did she become pregnant donkeys, mad Christmas shoppers and those ghastly Christmas songs belted out as musak in stores, all add up to a light hearted reminder and dig at the way many people turn Christmas into a commercial spend up In Forbidden Fruit we have all the usual characters from the Insula, a most unusual block of flats, a nice range of food and recipes to enjoy and Corinna and Daniel solving a mystery.No, the novel is not Great Literature, nor is it intended to be It s a good humoured, laughter inducing look at life in contemporary Melbourne though the eyes of a good natured, hard working middle aged woman I d recommend you start with the first novel and work your way through the series, especially if you are not familiar with the Australian culture or idioms This is the first book in the series that I read as I was looking for Christmas mysteries I fell in love with it, though it isn t all that Christmasy and the mysteries kind of take second place to the characters and setting I ve since listened to and read this several times As I wrote in the review of the first in the series, I shouldn t love these so much They have a lot of elements I don t usually care for in books, and in this one Corinna clearly loathes Christmas How can that be I sh This is the first book in the series that I read as I was looking for Christmas mysteries I fell in love with it, though it isn t all that Christmasy and the mysteries kind of take second place to the characters and setting I ve since listened to and read this several times As I wrote in the review of the first in the series, I shouldn t love these so much They have a lot of elements I don t usually care for in books, and in this one Corinna clearly loathes Christmas How can that be I shouldn t like her, but I do Here are the reasons I love these stories.1 A great narrator I could listen to forever But these books are also good to read.2 The MC is an actual adult, who acts like one She s not living her life in search of the perfect man or a size 2 body.3 The hero is perfect Absolutely perfect 4 Their relationship develops There s immediate attraction, but not instant love They don t jump into bed on the first meeting They care about each other, not just what the other person is like in bed.5 Melbourne and Insula are a wonderful setting I feel like I ve been there when I read one of these books.6 The MC is a baker, and the author appears to actually know about baking bread Time involved, care of yeast, etc., are all correct I hate reading books about bakers full of silly mistakes.7 These books are full of great minor characters They have anorexia or they eat nachos for breakfast, some are young and some old, some have money and others don t what a wonderful cross section of people I love visiting them.8 I don t have to wallow in tons of swearing or sex when I read these books There s a little cursing but not much and the sex that happens is off screen.9 This book is full of details that ring true While I read them as a sort of alternate fantasy series, perhaps because I first read the Christmas book which is quite unreal, it s a world that is firmly grounded in small details.10 Corinna thinks she caresabout her cats than people, but she s really compassionate She cares about the people around her and she s willing to act on their behalf I like her a lot Opening Sentence Four am is not an ideal time, especially if

his little heart, a lost bunny and a rose loving donkey all have their parts to play in this madcap investigation in a hot steamy Christmas week in Melbourne Christmas is not what it was but despite not following a belief herself, and living with a Jewish man, Corinna bring the message of Christmas home Good friends, good food, kindness and good times are what the season is all about Forbidden

boyfriend Daniel with his caseload When not sleuthing, Corinna runs her own bakery where she is surrounded by a cast of colorful characters and neighbors whose lives entwine with hers and whom she protects with a fierce determination as she rights the wrongs that they encounter, all the while cooking and baking Forbidden Fruit is great for the contemporary reader who enjoys an entertaining mystery where the sleuth isordinary than brilliant, the puzzleintriguing than complicated, where the mystery is resolved with nary a dead body having been discovered A select list of recipes is collected in an appendix for the foodies who might be interested in sampling authentic Australian cuisine I look forward to following the future adventures of Corinna Chapman and her cronies as the wrangle their way out of mishaps and misunderstanding resolving a mystery or two along the way Forbidden Fruit is Kerry Greenwood s fifth novel in the Corinna Chapman series, and features all our

incorporating a few animal libbers, a sect of fanatical Christians , some gypsies and a rosewater addicted donkey A few charming Christmas analogies appear Mouth watering muffins and cakes abound one can almost smell the bread baking As with all the Corinna novels, this one is a delight to read, will leave the reader feeling good and probably the best so far Readers will be looking forward to Cooking the Books to continue their Corinna fix As if the hot, windy Christmas weather weren t bad enough, Corinna attracts one colorful, crazy character after another They range from irritating to hateful to downright insane The schemes in this one were pretty implausible, and if you read these books too close together you start noticing a lot of repeat sentences, descriptions, and cleverness But I like Corinna and the Insula cast, and the descriptions of delectable meals and baking make me drool every time Note to the illustrator Glace As if the hot, windy Christmas weather weren t bad

religious cult, freegans, vegans and hackers while trying to help Daniel find two runaways.Once again Corinna dips into the weird and wacky edges of society, but we also getdevelopment in her

end
