Book Review – My Greek Island Summer by Mandy Baggot @mandybaggot @Aria_Fiction #BookReview #BlogTour #contemporary

Many thanks to publisher Aria for my spot on this Blog Tour.

A beautiful read so filled with quirky characters and plot twists that I was completely amused and entertained with this story. Twists, you ask? Aye, the flight to Corfu Island made some stops due to missed connection and flight turbulence. Author Mandy Baggot then went right ahead to fill it with delightful scenes and lovable characters, especially Petra, that had me feeling as if I were right there with Becky and Elias and their group.

Becky had a disagreement with her sister. She needed a break. Seeing an ad for house-sitter in Corfu Island, she decided to go on vacation. Elias the hunk was on the seat next to her. They got to talking. There were few hiccups in the flight and a winding road via Athens and Greece brought the entire group closer. Until Becky reached Corfu Island, all ready to enjoy her time on the beach until Elias turned up at the house. It seemed he had quite an unknown connection.

Having read a few book by this talented writer, I knew I was in for a sweet ride. The book was longer than I was used to and slightly slow in the beginning, but the sparks and zesty scenes took off along with their flight. There were other kooky characters who added humor and tangy saltiness to the prose. The story slowly pulled me in with the different plot lines.

I was quite amazed at how the author could develop all the characters within the story. Equal importance was given to each of their parts, and all of them were linked well. Romance and attraction were the cornerstones of this happily ever after.

Friendships and family and beautiful descriptions of the locales transported me to a different world on a lazy weekend. Captivating read, I would say.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

Becky Rowe has just landed her dream job house-sitting at a top-end villa on the island of Corfu. What could be better than six weeks laying by an infinity pool overlooking the gorgeous Ionian waters while mending her broken heart.

Elias Mardas is travelling back to Corfu on business whilst dealing with his own personal demons. Late arriving in Athens, Becky and Elias have to spend a night in the Greek capital. When they have to emergency land in Kefalonia, Becky’s got to decide whether to suck up the adventure and this gorgeous companion she seems to have been thrown together with or panic about when she’s going to arrive at Corfu…

Finally reaching the beautiful island, Becky is happy to put Elias behind her and get on with her adventure. Until he turns up at the villa…
