Cinnamon and Gunpowder , V ☉ [PDF / Epub] ☆ Book Lover By Jennifer Kaufman ❤ – 9facts.co.uk V This turned out to be a bit of a disappointment I think it was most likely a victim of my false expectations I was expecting a fun and hilarious historical romance romp What I actually got was a weird historical fiction with a touch of fantasy and a tiny bit of romance Mad Hannah Mabbot, the notorious pirate captain, is a terror on the high seas and a thorn in the side of the prominent Pendelton Trading Company During a raid where she kills a high ranking Pendelton official Lord Ramsey she decides to kidnap his cook That cook is Owen Wedgwood She gives Owen a simple choice, cook her a Sunday meal fit for a Queen each week or suffer the same fate as his former master My main issue with this was the lack of humor and romance It was a fairly dark read at times as the pirates were not the most moral of characters you will ever encounter It also painted a fair picture of life in the 1800s, which was pretty bleak for a lot of people I did warm a bit to both Mabbot and Owen towards the end of the story, but they were hardly the most likeable characters I ve ever read about All in all this recovered from a bad start to solidify into a fairly average read Rating 2.5 stars.Audio Note James Langton did a decent job with the audio.
