Book Review: My Greek Island Summer – Mandy Baggot ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️

Never has there been a better time to let a book transport you to the beaches of a Greek Island and it is currently the best way to vicariously soak up some foreign sunshine and feel like you’re on that long awaited holiday abroad.

Becky Rose works for her sister’s sandwich company and while she is very passionate about what she does she’s starting to feel like its not the best place for her. Megan is the ultimate small businesswoman and makes Becky feel inadequate just by being there. So when she sees an advert for someone to housesit a beautiful beach house on Corfu for two weeks it feels like the perfect solution for everyone.

Elias Mardas is travelling back to Corfu on business. He has been avoiding his family home for some time now and the last thing he wants is to face the truths that being back in Greece force him to confront. When their flight to Athens is delayed and they miss the connecting flight to Corfu Becky and Elias have to spend the evening together in the capital.

When the night in Athens then becomes a second night in Kefalonia after their plane has to make an emergency landing Becky has to decide to embrace the uncertainty and adventure or to walk away from the dashing Greek man whose fate has suddenly became intertwined with hers.

Its a fun story that beautifully describes both the scenery and the people of Greece and I defy you not to be hunting in the fridge for a slab of feta cheese and a glass of Metaxa as you read this book. Baggot does an amazing job of making you feel like you’re right there on the island with them and let’s face it for most of us it might be the closest thing we get to a foreign holiday this year.

I love sharing my favourite books with friends - nearly always spoiler-free as I hate reading a synopsis of the whole book in other reviews.
