Breezy Weekend Read: "Cinnamon and Gunpowder" by Eli Brown.

If you are looking for a book to read this weekend, then checkout Cinnamon and Gunpowder, an entertaining, off-beat novel with plenty of action to keep you engaged.

Set in swashbuckling 1819, a pirate - the beautiful Captain Hannah Mabbot - kidnaps a chef and holds him prisoner while she sails the seas, plundering ships owned by the British Pendleton Company, and searching for the notorious King of Thieves.  Captain Hannah allows her captive, Owen Wedgewood, to live as long as he prepares for her one amazing meal each week.  Can he do it? Will he escape?

This is a fun book with contemporary themes woven into the story.  Check out Cinnamon and Gunpowder this weekend - or perhaps squirrel it away for reading over the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend.
