Beautiful romcom – Greece Actually by Sue Roberts

Take one sea-view villa, add two dates with a Greek God, a few glasses of wine, a dash of accidental nudity, and a heavy dose of sunshine. Recipe for a perfect getaway… or an absolute disaster?

Small, shy, safe. That’s how Becky lives ever since her last romantic calamity landed her in hospital. Her comfort zone is as confining as her tiny bank balance, and fiercely guarded by her totally over-the-top mum. But the news that her ex is back sniffing round is the final straw. In a very un-Becky move, she packs her bags for the Greek island of Skiathos. Maybe the setting of her favourite ABBA movie will be just the break from reality Becky needs…

Stepping aboard the Mamma Mia! boat tour, Becky leaves her fear in the port as she sings… out loud… in public, and cries Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! to everything the Greek life has to offer. She befriends locals young, old, and absolutely perfect (hello, sizzling hot restaurant-owner Kyros!), dines on freshly baked bread drizzled in golden olive oil on a starlit date, and walks barefoot along silky sandy beaches.

When Kyros asks her to stay longer, Becky is stunned. Could she really create a new life for herself here, and trust her heart with this smooth-talking charmer? But just as she’s thinking about putting down roots, her troublesome ex makes a dramatic return, begging for her back. Will she go back to playing it safe, or will she take a chance on Greece and embrace her true dancing queen?

An absolutely laugh-out-loud summer rom-com guaranteed to give you THAT holiday feeling! Perfect for fans of Carole Matthews, Jenny Colgan and Sophie Kinsella.

My Review:

Another fantastic read, courtesy of Bookouture and NetGalley!
What did I think of it ? Read on to see . . . . 

This is a contemporary romance, a delightful read
It is a fun story, great to escape into, just what I need.
There are three friends who support each other
And a caring, protective father and mother…

Becky has recovered from what happened in the past
Making a fresh start and feeling safer at last
With her parents nearby and new friends, too,
Becky’s life is much better and has begun anew.

When Becky’s Uncle invites her to travel and stay
In his Greek villa whilst he sails away
Her parents volunteer her shop to run 
Her two best friends will go with her, the deal is done!

Skiathos there new home will be
For a week or two - or even three.
Meeting the locals, exploring around
Wondering just what there is to be found.

The three friends help and look after each other
As new people, new tastes and places they discover.
Through it all there’s a worry, though,
Will her ex find her and where should she go?

The sights, sounds and scents shared in this book
Make me long to visit Skiathos to take a look
With Mamma Mia, ABBA and a beautiful romance
This book is definitely worthy of more than a second chance!

Author Bio:

Sue Roberts lives in Lancashire with her long term partner Derek and has had a lifelong love of writing, encouraged by winning a school writing competition at the age of 11.

She always assumed that ‘one day’ she would write a book, always having a busy household and a job, the idea remained firmly on the back burner but never forgotten.

The inspiration for her first novel came to her on a holiday to a Greek village. Her daughters had left home and suddenly the time had come to write that book!
