Synopsis: Sun, sea and a sizzling romance… the perfect holiday, right? Wrong.

After a work party gone disastrously wrong, Samantha suddenly finds herself jobless and jilted. So when her sister invites Sam to stay at her little whitewashed farmhouse on a Greek island, Sam leaps at the chance to escape. Before long, she’s trundling up the cobbled driveway, almost colliding with sexy neighbour Spyros.

It isn’t all sunshine and smiles though. For every afternoon spent lounging by the pool, cocktail in hand, there is a morning spent adjusting to life with boisterous six-year-old nieces. When Spyros invites Sam to explore the island with him she’s tempted, but with his carefree, live-for-the-moment attitude, he couldn’t be more different to Sam with her five-year plans and high-maintenance hair. One drink, as friends, couldn’t hurt though? Over glasses of fruity Greek wine and honey-sweet baklava, can he – and the other charming locals – help city girl Sam to appreciate the simple pleasures the Greek life has to offer?

Just as Sam is considering ditching her designer gear for good though, she runs in to an old flame from home, and suddenly her London life comes hurtling back. Can her smooth-talking ex convince Sam to return to the concrete jungle, or will the lessons she’s learned from her Greek escape persuade her to stay?

A fun, fabulous and completely laugh-out-loud summer read perfect for fans of Carole Matthews, Jenny Colgan and Sophie Kinsella.

My Rating: 🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧

My Thoughts: firstly, can we talk about this cover? It’s so pretty, it’s bright and colourful and just entices you in straight away! – makes me think of holidays abroad and sunshine which is exactly what I needed with all the wet horrible weather we have been having in Yorkshire recently 😂

I felt really sorry for Sam when one night after a works party she goes home with someone & instantly falls for him, without even really realising she’s planning their future together but little did she know he only saw her as a one night stand and was keeping a big secret from her.

The fallout from that one mistake is massive, she’s losing work and she’s the focus of social media, to try and get away from the scandal she’s found herself in she escapes to Greece to spend some time with her sister and her family, but a sucker for punishment (as we all would be) she finds herself unable to stop checking up on what the people are saying about her & this ‘holiday’ becomes less than relaxing!

Just when she thinks all is lost for her life she is reunited with an old flame in very unfortunate but hilarious circumstances, could he be her light at the end of the tunnel, or is it true what they say about an ex being an ex for a reason?

Put all this with a whole host of other characters, Sans Nieces who are hilarious and just always have the perfect comic timing, attractive Greek men who keep Sams head turning even when she thinks she’s happy with her old flame & people from home who keep checking in to make sure she’s ok & what you have is an absolutely hilarious unputdownable book about a woman who runs away to escape her life but might just find what she’s looking for in the process.
