    MOBI Scent of Cloves MOBI #10003; Scent of eBook #226; #203; sharkmotorcyclehelmetscouk scent kindle, cloves epub, Scent of mobile, Scent of Cloves EpubAn unusual and interesting story of Julie Ashley a young woman who undertakes a glove marriage and sails to the island of Rua to be the wife of a man she has never met The strength of the novel lies in the detail and historical period of when the Dutch East Indian Company was at it's peakThis is a novel of suspense and mystery than of romance although there is a romantic element to the story It is an engrossing well written novel and kept my interest throughout but I would have liked a detailed ending for some of the characters
