A Greek Affair – Linn B. Halton

More than just a holiday romance?

Her daughter, her job and divorcing her untrustworthy ex are Leah’s main priorities. She isn’t really bothered that her life might be missing a few things. But after winning a prestigious travel blogger award, she’s inundated with offers to review glamorous holiday destinations. Lying around drinking exotic cocktails and being paid for it! What could be better?

Perhaps a romantic trip to idyllic Greece to find the one man who might make Leah risk her heart again…

 

 

My review

I love reading Christmas stories but on the other hand I am quite happy to leave them behind for about a year and I was so looking forward to start a book partly taking place in sunny Greece. I do admit that the festive season also gives you a warm feeling but I am still more a sun, sea and sand kind of girl. Give me blue skies and seas and white beaches and I am packing my suitcase.

Well this book made me want to jump on a plane and read it under an umbrella basking in the warm weather, but I will have to make do by reading it at home under a cosy blanket.

There are a lot of descriptions in the book about nature and interior designs. I like that because I am a very visual person and I like to be able to picture exactly what the background is. In this case it was very detailed but I think it was a very good call due to the main character’s occupation. It was like killing two birds with one stone resulting in a perfect fit.

The story is about love lost and found again, coming to terms with the past and looking forward to the future and about making difficult decisions in the process.

I liked the book and I was pleased there was an epilogue to give us a glimpse into the future. I can say, without any doubt, that my first read of the new year was a success. 4 stars.

Thank you, Linn B. Halton and RachelsRandomResources.
