Odd book. The novella (Scent of the Almonds) is deja vu Agatha Christie 'Ten Little Indians' , later retitled 'And then there were none'. A mix with passé Sherlock Holmes. This is not very original. The best is the last gem. 'The Widows' Café' is fresh, somewhat comic, and a delight to read. She could have turn this idea into a real novel...
