Book Review: Fine Scotch by Emem Bassey

This book has been on my TBR for quite a while now. Having read the first two books in the series which I really enjoyed, I should have read this one a long time ago but life as they say happened. After reading two rather bland books, I decided to turn to an author I believe will give me something to smile about and this author didn’t disappoint.

In this third book in the ‘Age is no bother’ series, we meet Joe and Mandy again but this time, it’s their story. Everyone knows that Mandy has the hots for her handsome landlord Joe, however, Joe is not interested in a relationship with anyone. He swears to keep the memory of his late wife Gloria alive no matter what but why does his heart skip a bit anytime Mandy shows up? This is a story about love, grief, letting go and new beginnings.

This was a good read as expected. The writing was fluid, the story line was great and the characters were dramatic as usual. In her usual style the author threw some mystery into the story which pumped things up for me. I didn’t give this book a five star rating simply because I believe it could have been shorter. Although the surprise at the end was unexpected and added spice to the story, a 250 pager or less would have been more ideal probably with one last sweep of editing.

Nevertheless, it entertained me from start to finish and I highly recommend. Note that there are quite a number of very explicit sexual scenes so this is strictly an adult read. I am off to read the last book in the series and expect to be entertained again.
