My Review:

I am really enjoying this series and I think this book might be my favourite instalment so far. Right away, I liked Tamara's voice as distinct from the rest of her sisters and I felt that the story itself flowed really well. In fact I finished this story in just a couple of hours.

The plotline of this story seemed to evolve more naturally than I felt book 3 and Tamara herself seemed a lot more 3 dimensional. Whilst i could see where a good portion of the story was going, i still enjoyed the journey and there was enough suspense and surprise to leave me happy with where the story went. The fact that we are now quite familiar with her other sisters now also helped. I also liked the balance of mystery and series ARC and felt that both developed enough to keep me satisfied for this instalment but still eager to see how it will all turn out.

I liked the chemistry between Leo and Tamara. It helped that we knew of her crush on Leo for a while so it made sense that this would play part of the story. So the development of their relationship didn't seem too much like instalove. Like the story itself, I felt their relationship evolved naturally even though it was quite quick.

Overall I was quite sad to leave Tamara's point of view as i felt quite connected to her perspective but either way, I am greatly looking foreward to seeing how this series will conclude.

I give this book 4 stars.

About The Book:

Taste (The Delta Girls #4) by Juliet Madison


The heat gets turned up on the Delcarta sisters when they have a mystery in the kitchen, one that puts each of them in mortal danger.
Tamara is smitten with neighbour Leo Pearce, and not only because he can cook like the chefs on television, and gets her a job as kitchen hand at the restaurant where he works. His dark intensity is alluring and he begins mentoring her in his own time, sharing their mutual passion for food and assisting her in preparations for a local amateur cooking competition. But is Leo as he seems?

Tamara's new friend, Emilia, advises her to be cautious about his troubled past and mood swings. Tamara is also worried that her chance at romance will be ruined when Leo discovers the secret of The Delta Girls.

But more serious matters may force her to put aside her personal concerns and do what s right, when the premonitions she shares with her sisters reveal that someone is in danger of being poisoned. As a special event at the restaurant nears, The Delta Girls will have to put their sensory clues together to figure out who is in danger, who is responsible, and how to stop it. But their mission proves more complicated than they thought when a catastrophic turn of events may require them to save more lives than just one."
