I was hooked on “Hanoi Jane” from the first page. Ray is a wildly creative, witty writer, using a combination of mystery and romance to tell the story of an expat woman in Hanoi jilted by her fiancé. Fresh, original, and often hilarious–I highly recommend this book as the perfect vacation or weekend need-to-escape read. Elka Ray has enormous talent and the potential to become a critically acclaimed author. Check out her website at elkaray.com!
