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?
A feel-good read perfect for fans of Carole Matthews, Jenny Colgan and Sophie Kinsella.
A Lovely Bright Read!
It’s been a grey couple of days here at home; a bit windy with showers of rain but I’ve been loving the sunshine pouring out of this novel!
This is a romance with a difference; Alice and Max have been together for quite some time and have wonderful memories of when he proposed whilst they were holidaying in Crete. With their approaching wedding becoming a bigger affair than Alice’s dreams, she is happy to jet off on a short ‘hen’ break with her closest girlfriends to – where else – but the Greek sunshine! Desperate to make the most of their time together, the young women set out on various excursions, one led by the very handsome and sexy Vangelis . . .
A lovely, bright read which includes plenty of wonderful details about Greek culture, this is almost as good as a holiday! As with real life, of course, the path of true love never runs smooth and a few cracks appear on the road to happiness. This is, for the most part, a light and happy read with a bit of angst thrown in here and there – after all, who ever has the perfect life? A nicely written, easy read and one which left me with a smile on my face. I’m happy to recommend this one to all lovers of romance with a bit of foreign sunshine thrown in, and well worth all four stars.

I live in Lancashire with my long term partner Derek and have had a lifelong love of writing, encouraged by winning a school writing competition at the age of 11.
I always assumed that ‘one day’ I 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 my first novel came to me on a holiday to a Greek village. My daughters had left home and suddenly the time had come to write that book!
