Let the hot Greek sun melt all your troubles away… A laugh-out-loud read full of warmth, joy and summer feeling!
Alice Clark is delighted when her boyfriend Max proposes. From her dead-end job to her straight-up-dead houseplants, her life hasn’t exactly turned out how she imagined, so she can’t wait to start some wedding planning.
But the intimate affair she imagined soon grows wildly out of control, along with Alice’s doubts. Just as things reach breaking point between the couple, Alice’s best friend whisks her away for an escape to a sun-kissed Greek island.
Sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and a cocktail – or three – and Alice soon finds herself letting loose and relaxing into the Greek way of life. When she visits a gorgeous village nestled in the hilltops overlooking the sea, and meets a friendly local woman with a very special business – and a very handsome son – Alice is surprised by how drawn she feels to these people and this life.
As the sun sets on her Greek holiday, Alice knows she has some big decisions to make. Will finding herself mean losing the life she had planned? Or could it be the start of something else entirely?
Thank you to Bookouture for letting me take part in this tour and for my copy of this book via netgalley. I read A French Affair last year and I have been meaning to read more of Sue’s books so this tour was a perfect opportunity to do this.
Our main character Alice was realistic. She was frustrating at times. I wanted her to speak up more but when you hear her back story you can see why she might not. I felt like she was a bit of a doormat at times. Max is a good man. He is a grafter and wants to celebrate the love of his life.
This is a feel-good book. Perfect for the current climate. It’s a light easy read that helps you to switch off from the real world. While I can’t physically go to Crete this is as close as. Sue is so descriptive I could almost feel myself there. The island is beautiful and while I have been there before I didn’t explore too much so I would love to return. The Jeep trip and the trip to Santorini were amazing!
I can’t wait to read more of Sue’s books and be transported to more beautiful locations.
