I was not quite aware of what I was getting into when I chose this book. It is not a genre I am generally happy with but the author was one I have seen on several blogs so I thought its time I gave it a fair go! Was I in for a surprise.
Monkeys, pirates, sort of vampirish figures, buried treasure, spells, a man behaving like a dog, a cupcake and bakery shop filled with delicious treats and characters definitely out of the ordinary.
A story of hidden treasure and clues hidden in a coin and a diamond and naturally every one around is hurrying trying to get there first.
Greed and avarice and a bit of lust thrown in for good measure this was a very different read for me.
