Holy moly. I feel like I’ve just been on an idyllic holiday, had a holiday romance and gained a book boyfriend all in the space of two days. I might even have a suntan.
I loved this book. I love stories with a holiday setting and vibe in general, and I really enjoy a heroine with flaws, but with whom I empathise with, anyway. I liked Holly, and I really found myself rooting for her HEA. Fair warning – this isn’t a romance for every reader as it contains alter, but that is handled very well and is not at all blasé. The romance is well handled, and the chemistry and tension work very well.
The setting is gorgeous and the description is wonderful. I can still see a turquoise sea and Holly’s little corner of Zakynthos. All of the characters were believable and I very much enjoyed their stories. The ending was satisfying, and all of the story threads came together very nicely. I’d guessed some of the answers to Holly’s questions along the way but that certainly didn’t spoil my enjoyment.
I’ll be on the look-out for more books by this author.
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
