I have read quite a few Laura Purcell books and I was so excited to tuck into Bone China, I thought the book was enjoyable enough however the thing for me which didn’t quite make it rate as high as other books by her was the lead character. I couldn’t relate to her character at all and I found her a little annoying – whether that was intentional or not, I didn’t enjoy reading scenes with her quite so much. As usual though it was full of suspense, twists and turns as well as some pretty thrilling scenes.
This was a very short read for me, but one I adored. I really love Nakano’s character, I found his quirky and slightly charming ways so fun to read. There is a dynamic between a bunch of very different people working as a small shop like this really enjoyable to read, even if Takeo was a bit of a dick.
I found this book such a beautiful read, it was another short one – however I found myself absolutely absorbed by each word on the page. I really took my time with this to take it all in. I found it a tiny bit confusing near the beginning of the book it seemed to have a random flashback which threw me off guard and made me go ‘uh?!’. However besides this the book was a lovely and heartbreaking read.
