Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

#BookadayUK - Day 3 - Favorite Book in Translation

Like Water for Chocolate - Thomas Christensen, Carol Christensen, Laura Esquivel

I was going to skip this one because I thought I hadn't ever read a book that's been translated to English (I know, I know).  But then Moonlight Reader mentioned Like Water for Chocolate and - hey! - I read that one!  So, my reading is (slightly) more worldly than I thought.

 

It was a lot of years ago that I read this, but I remember I was caught by its ending and its blend of myth and reality.  Also, Rosaura's unfortunate medical condition.
