Editorial Reviews

Review

"Spicer creates not only two very complex characters and a strong supporting cast, she also takes us on a nature tour of Trinidad and Tobago. [Her] ability to take me to the place where I heard the cacophony of tropical birds and insects is amazing..."

"CAFÉ AU LAIT is a steamy, hot romance... the sex is mind blowing..."

"I loved this book and anticipate getting a second serving of CAFÉ AU LAIT because of its brilliant flavor, rich aroma and the way it perked up my spirits. Readers will enjoy this delicious romance and especially the steamy, frothy love scenes." --Susan Barton, Romance Readers at Heart

Review

"Even if the reader has never set foot in the Caribbean, the sights and sounds, perfectly described in this book, will make you feel like you're there... throw in some unexpected drama, and you've got yourself an entertaining novel."

Shari Zamore is mentally exhausted and feels a desperate need of some respite. She knows if she remains in London she will receive no mental rest. She decides to go home to Trinidad and Tobago to find her groove and hopefully some uncomplicated loving with a hunk who, like her, want no ties.

Although she is originally an ice queen towards him when they first meet, Michael Chancery is attracted to Shari so he keeps coming around. As she begins to loosen up, he turns up the heat sensing attraction reciprocity. They begin to share a tryst, but she wants no strings while he initially ignored his desire but now demands a lifetime rope as he claims their hearts are hogtied together.

This is an entertaining Caribbean contemporary romance starring two likable individuals with radically diverse lifestyles and seemingly no chance at compromise. Although their story line is typical of the sub-genre, Shari and Michael are an interesting couple; however, it is the setting of Trinidad and Tobago that owns the novel as Liane Spicer interweaves the beautiful locale into a fine tale that will have the audience considering some mellowing (and reading) in the Caribbean.

I read this book in a day, staying up overnight became I had to finish. The story was entertaining and informative, with a little bit of intrigue throw in. I would definitely recommend this book and look forward to reading her other offerings.

I don't read a lot of romantic novels, but I'm glad I read this one. I found myself transported back to the Caribbean of my youth. I did some growing up in Puerto Rico, and even though this novel is set further south, it still resonated. I could feel the waves and smell the breeze; the setting was very much a central character here. Not that the other characters were anything to sneeze at. I think I have a crush on Shari, and even some of the secondary characters are so well drawn that I wanted to know them more. And that's the best that any writer can do with a secondary character. The ending was sweet, the secret unexpected, and I turned off my Kindle happy that I had this chance to visit a warm, far away place.

I enjoyed this romance. The descriptions of Trinidad and of the carnival scenes were vivid and right on point. The characters were varied and fun. The plot was interesting, more detailed than your run-of-the-mill romance with a surprise twist at the end. It was very steamy in all the right places. :-)

I do not know why I purchased this book but I am happy I did because not only was it an unusual take on a romance but also it gave wonderful visuals of the islands. I would love to visit Trinidad and Tobago sometime in the near future.
I believe the book could have ended on a couple of occasions but the author had more to tell. I compare it to when a book you're really into ends and you wonder what happens next. That's what this author filled in. Two times. Now that I know what happened next, I believe being left to wonder makes the story better. It makes you remember the book you just read. I hope I'm making sense.

thank you for this leisure reading.

p.s. the second half of the book is where it gets interesting.

Set in the Caribbean twin island state of Trinidad and Tobago, this romance novel does not disappoint!

The lush tropical environment of both islands are richly captured, and the secondary characters are also well-drawn.

The last few chapters were unpredictable and added a good sense of mystery and intrigue.

And the romance starts from the first chapter and does not stop! Each interaction that the couple shares is tense, witty and will keep readers guessing as to why Micheal is treating her like that (of course we all know that they will get together at the end, but the journey was great!)

Local Trinbagonians will love the sense of familarity from reading about their islands, and those Trinbagonians who are living abroad will wish they were back home after reading this!

A wonderful novel, will recommend this to all and to read more from this author.

I've spent the last two weeks slowly savouring Café au Lait on my Kindle for Android during my journeys to and from work. I didn't want it to end! Liane's vivid descriptions of the flora and fauna, the wildlife, the food, the music and the people of Trinidad brought the island to me in glorious Technicolor. I feel like I've been on a wonderful Caribbean holiday without taking a step out of London.

Shari, disillusioned with her life in the UK, travels to Trinidad to regain her 'joie de vie'. Tall, dark, handsome Michael Chancery would be just the person to put the spark back into her life - if he hadn't taken an inexplicable and intense dislike of her. Determined to make the most of her three-month hiatus, Shari tries to ignore his brooding presence. Fate, however, seems equally determined to throw them together.

Michael, badly scarred by the thorns of an English rose, fights the attraction he feels for Shari. Surely he would be an absolute fool to become entangled with another British woman after the humiliation he suffered at the hands of one of her countrywomen. Every instinct tells him to run a mile in the other direction, but the attraction he feels for Shari is too strong to resist.

A well-crafted, beautifully-written romance novel that is head and shoulders above the usual 'girl-meets-boy' story. I eagerly await her next novel.
