The Spice King Review


 About the Book

Gray Delacroix has dedicated his life to building a successful global spice empire, but it has come at a cost. Tasked with gaining access to the private Delacroix plant collection, Smithsonian botanist Annabelle Larkin unwittingly steps into a web of dangerous political intrigue and will be forced to choose between her heart and her loyalty to her country. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts
I so enjoy Camden's books. She always has such a way of digging up little known historical facts and weaving them into her stories. This book is no exception. I loved learning about about spices and plants and it made me think of things a bit differently. We haven't always had all of the fruit and veggies like we get from the grocery store and of course I knew that but hadn't thought about how it all started. Also this book talks about how food products were not regulated or inspected. It was fascinating and really made the book unique.  I'll be honest in saying that I had a hard time loving the characters on this book. They just didn't click with me, I thought there could have been a little more character depth. Otherwise it was an enjoyable read and if you like a dash of humor sprinkled with romance, and history this could be the book for you! 

Four stars.

I received this book from the publisher for free. All opinions are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
