#5*Review for My Greek Island Summer by Mandy Baggot #FamilyDrama #Romance

About the book

Two weeks. One unforgettable trip to Corfu. A chance to change her life.

Becky Rose has just landed her dream job house-sitting at a top-end villa on the island of Corfu. What could be better than two 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…

My Review:

What a great read this book turned out to be, though I really shouldn’t have been surprised as I’ve really enjoyed everything I’ve read by Mandy Baggot. I’ve also discovered this is her twentieth published novel so I’ve got some more of her books to look out for and read in future!

The heroine of this story is Becky Rose. She’s a highly talented sandwich and wrap creator, with a superb sense of taste that enables her to mix unlikely fillings that work brilliantly together. However, she does this in her sister’s shop and her sister comes across as someone who really doesn’t appreciate the work of Becky. When Becky, fuming from her sister’s attitude, discovers she can have a fortnight in Corfu house sitting, she jumps at the chance. However, nothing is going to go smoothly for her as the journey involves delays, missed connections, stop overs and making two new friends! That’s all before she gets to Corfu which is when all the fun really starts . . .

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, such a fun read to escape into! It is a skilful mix of romance, family dramas, friendship and secrets intertwined to make a delightful page turner and a heartwarming story. I have no hesitation in highly recommending it!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
