About the book
Step into the dreamlike city of Marrakech.
Where passionate music, magic potions and the drama of Africa are cooled by the intuitive genius of Arabic culture.
Miranda Innes and her partner were lured into buying a beautiful long-neglected riad in the heart of this pink-walled city. Only after they’d begun their restoration work did they find that nothing in this place of smoke and mirrors was quite what it seemed.
In Cinnamon City Miranda Innes takes you beyond the tourist track, behind the bolted doors and deep inside the romance that is Marrakech. With lyrical and evocative descriptions of the swirling colours, flavours and aromas, this glorious book will open your eyes to this most exotic of North African cities.

Enjoyable read. Page turner – good information of the culture. Journalistic style. good picture of the trials and tribulations of buying and renovating in Marrakech.
