The Paris Key by Juliet Blackwell ended up being a very enjoyable book despite a bit of a slow start for me. It took a bit of getting used to the jumps in time and point of view between many chapters.
The plusses of the book are:
It's set mostly in Paris and captures the feel of the City very well
The cover is a perfect evocation of Paris
The main protagonist is a very well drawn character
Thanks to The Eclectic Reader for her post about the book which prompted me to order it from the library.

Just a simple sweet potato/potato dish for you today. You can change it up to suit your own tastes.
Slice your potatoes/kumara – try to have them a reasonably even thickness. Layer them in your oiled baking dish with salt, pepper and a sprinkling of cinnamon on top of each layer.
Mix together some coconut cream, chicken stock concentrate, ¼ cup of ginger tea and pour it over the potatoes. Put some knobs of butter on top. I thought about adding a layer of cheese on top but didn't
Cook in a moderate oven until tender and golden.
