Sun, sea and a sizzling romance… the perfect holiday, right? Wrong.
Samantha thought she was living the dream, but after a work party gone disastrously wrong, she suddenly finds herself jobless and loveless. So when her sister calls out of the blue, inviting Sam to stay at her little whitewashed farmhouse on a Greek island for the summer, Sam leaps at the chance to escape. Before long, she’s trundling up the cobbled driveway, the sun beating down on her twenty suitcases.
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 twin six-year-old nieces. When Sam meets her new neighbour Spyros, there’s an immediate spark… but with his carefree attitude, he couldn’t be more different to Sam. Slowly, 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 ready to ditch 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.
