After our Tuesday hike, we had a relatively quiet day yesterday.
And, importantly, courtesy of the Spanish (Canary Islands) sunshine….
I don’t do book reviews here, but I have to say this. If you read thoughtful romantic tales, enjoy Anglo-American stories, grativate towards a “superb mess” of a leading woman (which I’d early on termed “Dee” here as I got into it; and, well, she gets even more superbly “messier” as the story develops), and a mysteriously layered, well-to-do, handsome American, uh, bloke (“Milo”), and relish some good plot twists – one especially broadsided me; I never saw it coming – then buy this book. That is all.
Clearly Adele put A LOT into it. She should be proud of it. It’s a good read.
I’ve also read her saying she’s unsure what to write next. Assuming that uncertainty hasn’t yet been resolved, I have a modest suggestion. If nothing else, she could continue that story.

Which leads me next to some real-life, umm, “romantic danger.” I’m referring here to growing worries about “mysterious” foreign men. If you are a Chinese woman and a state worker, your government wants you to know this:
You had better be ON YOUR GUARD when it comes to dashing, handsome (and presumably Western), and probably, uh, “mysterious,” foreign men who may try to wine and dine you.
Don’t fall for it! They could well be….SPIES!

Yet one would think it’s not only a one-way street?:
Interestingly, no mention in that Associated Press article about how Chinese male state employees are similarly warned about how to avoid the clutches of gorgeous, seductive, foreign women….
….who could well also be….SPIES! 😉
Have a good day, wherever you are in the world. 🙂
