Sun, sea and a sexy stranger – a whole lot of fun just got a lot more complicated.
Capable, confident and career-driven, Ellen had her dream job and a marriage proposal from boyfriend Ross. Life was good, her future set. Until it wasn’t and everything fell apart…
Whisked off to the beautiful island of Corfu to plan her sister Lacey’s big, fat, Greek wedding, Ellen is hoping some time out will help clear her head and heal her heart. But letting go of her past is not going to be easy.
With Lacey in full on Bridezilla mode, Ellen is soon distracted from her own problems. And when the all-inclusive treats on offer at hotel Blue Vue include one gorgeous, brooding Adonis – Yan – Ellen finds him difficult to resist.
But Ellen isn’t looking for love or lust, or anything involving too much ouzo…or is she?
I love everything about this book, from the fabulous summery cover, the wonderful story and the even lovelier characters.
Just by reading Truly, Madly, Greekly you are instantly transported to your favourite holiday destination with all the sights, sounds and smells. Its almost like reliving your favourite holiday memories all over again. The author has done a wonderful job of getting the whole holiday experience spot on in this book and I think all readers will instantly relate to the two sisters Ellen and Lacey in this story.
The characters in the story are very real and I think the reader will be able to see a lot of themselves in Ellen and Lacey. I really wanted to be there with them as they are wonderfully strong characters. I actually for once found the male characters to be the more vulnerable ones in this story. Especially Yan, the lovely member of the animation team who is instantly attracted to the complicated Ellen.
Truly, Madly, Greekly is essentially marketed as a summer read and ticks all the right boxes but for me I think this book no matter when and where you read it will always bring a bit of sunshine and warmth into your life and I hope to maybe see another story with Yan and Ellen in the not to distant future as it would be lovely to catch up with them.
Many Thanks to Bookouture and Netgalley for an Advanced Readers Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have awarded this book 5/5 stars.
