Guest Book Review: Emma Hamilton - Greedily Yours - Episode 3: Hungry in Hanoi

Reviewed by Kelly Spillane

Episode 3 of 8: Mia loves to try new things, so Vietnam is the perfect place for her to make some culinary discoveries. But is her boyfriend's refusal to leave his comfort zone going to be a hindrance to their holiday or add new spice to her life? 

Greedily Yours is a serial novel about the quest for top dishes ... with a dash of accidental love. 

Mia Maxwell loves food. She loves it so much that she's made it her career. On the surface Mia seems to have it all sewn up. She lives in trendy east London with her best friend. By day she runs her own food PR consultancy, and by night she's a food blogger enjoying a burgeoning audience. Mia has a banker boyfriend who enjoys travelling the world, enabling her to taste the globe's culinary delights. But Mia is still hungry and, when she heads down to Cornwall to run a food festival, she doesn't realize that her entire life is about to be cast adrift.

Mia Maxwell is back in episode three and this time she's in Vietnam. The story started in Miami and started exactly where episode two left off. It gives great descriptions of the food and the places that Mia travels to without being over descriptive. In this episode Mia is contacted by another food blogger, whom she is certain is the lovely Tom that she met while in Cornwall in episode one. Both Tom and Mia are fairly certain that they are messaging each other but neither one of them want to tell the other who they really are in fear of being wrong. We still get to see glimpses of Tom's life in this episode and the chemistry still flows between the two characters even though they are only in contact through email. 

This episode is by far my favourite episode in the series to date, it still has all the great food talk but this one comes with added humour in the shape of Paul's parents. There were parts of this episode that had me laughing out loud and I seemed to have finished reading it in no time at all. This is a fun, light hearted easy read.  

The characters, especially Mia, seem to grow and develop more with each episode. By now I think of Mia as a friend, she has stopped being a fictional character to me. I love how each episode starts where the previous one leaves off so we don't miss a minute of Mia's adventures. The end of each episode always leaves me wanting more and I am really looking forward to reading the rest of the episodes and finding out more about Mia and her adventures.  

I'd like to thank Hayley at ED PR for sending us Greedily Yours: Hungry in Hanoi for Kelly to review.
