CINNAMON CITY is exotic Marrakech where the smell of spices, the colour and the sheer exuberance of the lifestyle overwhelm and dazzle Miranda Innes and her partner.
They leave an idyllic home in Spain, the subject of a previous book, to tackle a new project in Morocco where they buy a riad, do it up and settle there.
I am not a particular fan of 'Anywhere in the world is better than Britain and I'm going to detail why' books, a genre popularised by Peter Mayle all those years ago in Provence.
But having skimmed through France, Italy and Greece in various ways I thought Northern Africa might prove more alluring. Wrong.
Miranda Innes is a great foodie and lists, at length, almost every meal she ate in Marrakech and a few on route. We even learn the details of her wardrobe - information overload.
Marrakech may be exotic but Cinnamon City is rather dull.
