Review by Linda Yau
Ever since his grandmother's back went out, Midori Ichii must take the place of her job as a maid temporarily for Asagi Kosaka's household. His new responsibilities include making tea for the master, and serving it to him. All the while, wearing a maid's dress.
The only thing though, the master is his age and is a attractive wealthy business man. At first Midori finds him irritating, and thru the course of the book grows onto him.
This book is a one-shot volume and good for a quick read while traveling. It is funny, and at times the reader can feel frustrated for Midori and Asagi, at later parts of the book. Everyone, from the younger brother to the uncle to the maid and to the butler always seem to interrupt them, when they are hot and bothered. This leads the aloof Asagi to sulk while Midori could only look on and have these cute expressions.
Midori is drawn with an androgynous look, this is a look that certainly has confused my co-worker who saw this book, and thought that Midori was a girl. So if you wouldn't know the publisher and the plot, the cover can confuse readers. I have enjoyed reading this book, and as Kris had mentioned in several of other reviews, and I chime in for this title. Deux has selected a good book to bring over to the United States.
