(Before It's News)

It's fall, and that means cool temperatures and cozy reading begins. It's also hunting season which means my husband is busy and I have more evenings to escape into a good book.
The Tea Planter's Wife by international bestselling author Dinah Jeffries was luscious. (I made the author's name a link to her website for the book so you can enjoy the extra goodies)
The setting is Sri Lanka when it was Ceylon in the 1920's and 30's. The characters are so well developed that I am profoundly disappointed they aren't real people. You can practically taste how the air smelled in the descriptions in this novel. Rich, lush, and romantic and mysterious…this is just the kind of book I love to carry me away for awhile. There was also dramatic heartbreak, wrenching really. You see so clearly by the end of the story how damaging secrets and prejudice can be.” If only…!” You will think! 
There was just enough nail-biting suspense to keep me turning pages too late at night, reluctant to let go of the story- I just had to see what was going to happen next, and afraid to miss something, then I'd realize, it's a book. Thank goodness. It's always there for me, right where I left off. The story is written in such a way to become real and draw you in.
A complete escape because it's one of those ravishing books that you don't want to leave. Forget a night out or a movie-
“thanks but I've got a good book.” It's one of those. Really a morsel of a read-captivating.
