A lovely gentle book peppered with humour. I could relate to this book as I'd stayed in a lot of the places named in the book, it certainly made me smile. It also opened my eyes to the real Greek culture, I'd only experienced a taste of the culture but could definitely identify with the author's stories. I bought this for the recipes but found myself enjoying the story more than the recipes - which, incidentally, are delicious!

This was one of those books where I noticed the percentage read at the bottom of the Kindle Page getting bigger and dreaded finishing. It was wonderful - a real escape from the grey winter. I wanted it to last so much longer ! It is the first thing I have read for a very long time where the English was absolutely spot on, not one typo/spelling mistake, grammar wonderful and yet written in a really captivating style. The recipes are lovely, the tips for those going to stay awhile/work abroad extremely useful and the stories very interesting. I beg the author to write more, and I'm off to search now to see if she has. A real joy.

I read this inbetween my usual thrillers,and really enjoyed a look at Greek life,and some of the recipes sound wonderful.I have been to several Greek Islands on holiday but you don't really get to experience life as a local, this is exactly as I would imagine it,and I will also be trying several of the recipes,good book.
