The Greek Heart by Kate Frost – really is a delightful Romantic Escape!

A broken heart, an island escape, a boy from the past. Will Lottie’s search lead to love?

When a special anniversary takes Lottie on a journey to find the little boy she once knew, it’s a chance to put heartache behind her.

Lottie’s search takes her to Greece and a family who have known about her for decades. A warm welcome gives her some much-needed time out and the chance to reflect. Yet an emotional revelation and two handsome but complicated brothers make her question her past decisions.

Learning to love herself and be content on her own is the first step. But will Lottie be able to follow her heart and find lasting happiness?

My Review:

I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into this fantastic story and revisiting Greece and Dubrovnik alongside Lottie!

When only eight years old, Lottie had major surgery to repair a hole in her heart. Whilst in hospital there was a younger boy on the ward with her, A and the two were great friends but have never seen each other after their operations. Now, thirty six years  and two divorces later, Lottie decides to try to find him, to discover if his operation was as successful as hers and what he’s doing now. The only problem is she’s relying on memories to try to locate him but it will give her the opportunity to re-evaluate her life choices and options. She’s starting with a stay in Santorini at the hotel which was originally also the family home for Artie, though she knows they no longer live there. . . .

This is a beautifully written story, with fabulous descriptions of the people and places that immerse the reader into the story. It is an adventure, a chance to consider what happened in the past without the pressure of work and to make new plans for the future. There are great characters to meet, new relationships for Lottie to form, mouth watering descriptions of tasty dishes, some swoon worthy Greek men and surprises, too. It really lives up to its series title as a Romantic Escape book and is a lovely way to imagine being out in the Greek sunshine again. I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone else who is wishing they could go away on holiday or is looking for a delightful story to escape into.

Thanks for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
