Jaswinder was so entertaining. Having been the daughter growing up that things just happen to, she is use to things not going her way. Things still just happen to her as an adult. It seemed that with every chapter she had another “thing” just happened to her most of them made me laugh or giggle, a few times I’m sure my jaw dropped and I though “Aww poor Jaswinder.”
By far my favorite character was Halmoni. I loved that even though her and Jaswinder did not speak the same language she could show her love and support my making the right tea brew, a touch, a look, and of course “”Not that.” The fact that her potions could cure almost any ailment from ear aches to sunburn just made her more lovable by all.
I had many ideas as to who was Mike’s murderer, knowing that it could not possibly be Halmoni. I’m so glad I was wrong and couldn’t figure it out. The ending of the book was perfect. After finish the book I had a few ah-ha moments, where it all clicked into place.
Haole Wood was on my wish list and I was thrilled when Dee DeTarsio asked me to read and review this book.
