The Dangers of Truffle Hunting
Rating: 3 / 5
We all know that life can be a struggle when things don’t go right, but what if your life is neatly mapped out? Is there a struggle in that, too?
As photographer Kit Gossard discovers, that question hinges upon the question of one’s character. Kit does a good impression of being amenable (safe job as a food photographer, a partner ready to commit and a lavish wedding in the wings), but there’s something just below the surface that suggests a very different story.
When the ‘catalyst’ arrives—a rugged and magnetic stranger—those supressed emotions can no longer be contained. Just when you think author Sunni Overend will veer into Mills & Boon territory she reins it in, and lets Kit’s fiercely feminist streak take control.
This is a novel that revels in the senses (which includes some explicit scenes), and Overend is overt in her end game—The Dangers of Truffle Hunting is all about seduction, and it’s not Kit, but the reader, too, that she has firmly in her sights.
