Next up is a summery read by an author who knows Greece like the back of hand, Mandy Baggot! I am delighted to be today’s stop on the blog tour for ‘One Last Greek Summer’. Many thanks to Aria Fiction for inviting me to take part. Here is my review:
Beth Martin is 31, newly divorced and wondering just what life holds for her…
Best-friend, Heidi, is adamant that all the answers lie in Corfu – the island where the girls partied away their youth. So cue a trip to a sun-drenched Greek island, ouzo cocktails, a trip down memory lane… and Alex Hallas, the man Beth has never quite forgotten.
As they dance under the stars, the sand beneath their toes, old feelings begin to resurface and Beth might just have a chance to take back her life. If they can learn to love the people they’ve become…
What does TWG think?
Snigger. Mandy Baggot really is a sort, isn’t she? I mean, nobody else can pull of a storyline that threatens to turn the air blue without being too in your face! Snigger.
If you’re a fan of Greece, you will be in your element with this book. I will admit that I have never stepped foot onto Greek soil, however due to the incredible attention to detail of the Island, I genuinely felt as though I was visiting Corfu myself.
Just like Mandy Baggot’s other novels, romance plays a large part in the storyline and is written effortlessly as though anyone can hop onto a plane to Corfu and find themselves a partner just like that!
Beth and Heidi are such fun characters – I thoroughly enjoyed following their holiday of a lifetime. Alex, as well, was another memorable character due to his relatable traits and family issues.
I can’t really fault Mandy Baggot’s story telling at all – she writes with such joy that it ends up being infectious and I always end up finishing one of her books with a huge smile on my face.
