Escape to Greece with the perfect feel-good romantic comedy to read on the beach this summer
Abby Dolan is having a very bad day…
In twenty-four hours, she’s lost her job and her boyfriend. Single and with nothing left to lose, she’s headed for a Corfu escape to spend time with her family while she heals her broken heart.
Only her mum and sister’s estate agency ‘Desperately Seeking’ is just that, desperate! Instead of the relaxing, sunshine holiday she’d hoped for, Abby finds herself spending her break helping get the business back on its feet. Determined to attract new clients and give her family a second chance at success, she finds the perfect property to sell in Villa Pappas complete with gorgeous gardener, Theo.
Perhaps working this summer could be a welcome distraction after all. But Theo has his own secrets and Abby isn’t the only thing he wants to take off the market…
My Review – I loved it!
This is one of those books that gave me a reading high, then a real book hangover when I’d finished it. I was craving for more!
Mandy Baggot is the queen of the summer escape.
I absolutely fell in love with this fab book, the characters, and with Corfu itself. It was lovely to escape in my head to Corfu for some sun, and what a fabulous time I had.
I lost myself in the gorgeous Corfu sunshine, and some gorgeous company too….
I liked Abby instantly, with her lists. Her sister Melody was an outrageous flirt, and her widowed mum, Jackie, seemed like she’d lost her sparkle. Spyridoula was a typical strong Greek lady, a great character who I enjoyed getting to know.
Onto the men-folk. Leon the taxi driver, best friend of Theo, a swoon-worthy Greek god. I liked Stamatis and could imagine and smell his woodworking shack! George from the taverna had some hidden talents too, especially at the estate agency relaunch party with his bouzouki. The author’s description of Theo and Leon’s dance blew me away! *fans self*
You can tell Mandy Baggot is smitten with the place, she writes about it with such love.
The thing with me and Mandy Baggot books is that I never forget them, they seem like a real memory and I find myself reminiscing about past summers and Christmasses! I know, I’m weird!
Thanks to Mandy Baggot, Penguin Random House UK, Ebury Publishing and NetGalley for the early review copy in which I give my honest opinion.
