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…
A Virtual Holiday!
How I’ve looked forward to this – and how well I’ve been rewarded!
Becky is on her way to Corfu to house-sit a stunning villa – the chance for the holiday of a lifetime and completely different to her usual day-to-day life. Elias is also travelling to Corfu; partly business, partly to see his parents. Sitting together on the plane, their acquaintance should be brief – but somehow fate intervenes to extend the time it takes to reach their destination. Finally, Becky makes it to her holiday home and dreams of floating in the infinity pool and concentrating on herself, but then Elias turns up …
A Mandy Baggot novel is always such a treat to read, and I truly loved everything about this one! In the midst of the Covid-19 lockdown, the chilly weather continuing in Scotland despite others posting pictures of beautifully warm spring days, this novel brought the sunshine into my life! Becky and Elias are both very charismatic, each with a differing history – all of which is revealed over the course of the book. With several other characters, there is plenty happening on these pages and so many funny moments to boot. Wonderfully entertaining, thoroughly enjoyable and absolutely recommended. In these strange times we live in, this book will allow you to take a virtual holiday and enjoy the feel of the sun on your skin – even when the skies outside are grey. A perfect read – earning a perfect five sparkling stars!
