“It zips along at a cracking pace.”
This is the perfect getaway read for those who love a fine mix of mystery and chick lit.
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.
Loved this book and couldn’t put it down. It’s a fun read, with characters who offer depth and insight – you’re never quite sure which way the plot will turn and that kept me turning the pages, eager for more. I’d highly recommend this and have already lent it out to my friends.
I haven’t plowed through a book so voraciously in a very long time. Ray’s descriptions of the streets of Ha Noi and northwestern Viet Nam were spot on and immediately transported me back to the days when I lived there, so much so that I had to remind myself that the book was a work of fiction. Hanoi Jane’s fast-paced plot is very well written and a real page turner. I highly recommend reading this book, even if you don’t have a connection to Viet Nam. I look forward to reading more of Ray’s work very soon!
What a great, easy read- I live in Saigon, and the setting is authentic. Funny characters. The writer is a witty linguist and the story was not only funny, it was super interesting and kept me entertained. I highly recommend this book. Enjoy!
