Patricia from the Napanee Branch recently enjoyed Recipe for a Perfect Wife, the latest book by one of her favourite authors Karma Brown. Here is her review:

Full disclosure – I am a Karma Brown fan. Every year I look forward to her upcoming book and devour it as soon as it arrives. Brown’s latest book Recipe for a Perfect Wife did not disappoint. In this dual narrative, the reader gets to know Alice and Nellie through an old house, an old cookbook, and letters.
