The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by: Aimee Bender

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

Book #42 for #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks.

I listened to this book at the beginning of the month but somehow I missed it on my Goodreads list.  I listened to this at the same time that I read The Memory of Lemon by Judith Fertig.  I didn’t intentionally read two books about lemons at the same time.  They were similar in nature as they both involved having a special ability that involves taste and foods.

In this book, young Rose realizes that she has this tremendous ability to taste the feelings of the chefs behind each food item she eats.  Not only can she taste the feelings of the chefs but she can also taste where the item is from and how it was grown.  It sounds like something that would be cool to experience but it becomes a burden to Rose.  She finds it difficult to eat and gets frustrated because she learns secrets that she is never meant to know.  This was good but not great.

I gave this book 3 crowns.
