Review

"Diving into this book is like diving into the Aegean. Sunshine in story form - I absolutely love Mandy’s books" (Milly Johnson)

"A LUSH summery read, guaranteed to satisfy all the senses. Fall in love with ripped romeo, Andras, as Baggot takes you on an unforgettable journey that will make you want to book your Greek getaway before you can say Baklava! Her exquisite descriptions of food won't be the only thing you salivate over. Scrumptious sun-kissed romance at its best!" (Samantha Tonge)

"Sizzling, summery and totally delightful this book is everything a holiday read should be! Mandy Baggot effortlessly transported me to the clear blue skies, sparkling azure sea and perfect beaches of Corfu ... a gorgeous hug-of-a-book about friendship, family, fun and love - the ultimate summer romance!" (Zara Stoneley)

"I absolutely loved it! It made me want to pack my flip-flops and head straight to Corfu - laugh-out-loud funny, full of heart and melting with hot romance - what more could you need? Mandy Baggot is at the top of her game - this is fun, flirty and heartfelt romance at its very best." (Annie Lyons)

"Loved this story and I so wanted to stay on Corfu with Andras and Tess. There’s brilliant chemistry between the Greek Adonis and the feisty Brit making this such a fun read. Great characters and a sunny setting make this the perfect beach read!" (Bella Osborne)

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher, Ebury, for the ARC. This review is my honest opinion and I was not paid for it. No money or baklava exchanged hands.

Mandy has done it again. She's written another sun-soaked Greek tale of mythical proportions which had me howling for my Retsina. The sights, sounds and smells of the Greek Island of Corfu are brought to life in this hilarious tale of one woman and her fear of commitment.

It's normally the guys who are the commitment-phobes in most books; it's refreshing to meet Tess, who loves romance, sex, hot guys... just as long as it doesn't progress into a relationship. Cos Tess doesn't do relationships - she simply can't.

When Andras blurts out to his mother that Tess is his girlfriend, for some mad reason Tess goes along with it. It's just a bit of fun, after all - and Andras is hot! Not that she's looking, of course - she promised Sonya she would stay away from men. She is there for Sonya, after all.

The physical attraction between Tess and Andras is obvious to them, but they know it cannot go any further. To watch - sorry, read - as they do everything they can to avoid falling for each other is hilarious. I found myself laughing out loud in several parts of the book.

The characters of Andras's bossy mother and sister are brilliant; endlessly conniving to pair Andras off with his pretty cousin, and treating Tess, a non-Greek girl, with disdain and distrust. If only they knew...

Mandy writes with a down-to-earth humour that just makes you feel good reading her books. You'll also want to book a Greek holiday after reading this.

4.5 stars.
Thank goodness I was in the comfort of my own home while reading Mandy Baggot’s new book, Single For The Summer.
Had I been on a bus or a train, I would definitely have been that annoying woman people moan about on social media by constantly guffawing.
There was no keeping it in though; it’s a laugh out loud kind of funny, full of little quips (there’s even a reference to Donald Trump), weaved into a feel-good romance, perfect for the beach.
While I have been reading and enjoying some new authors lately, it’s so lovely to go back to a familiar favourite.
Even though Mandy’s books always feature different characters and stories, I already know I love her writing style and that I’m in for a treat – and Single For The Summer is certainly that.
Tess’s six-week rule, which results in some truly cringe-worthy situations, comes from having her own heart broken.
Witnessing her slowly heal makes for some really touching moments, especially when they are set against such a beautiful backdrop.
As it says on her website “Mandy loves the Greek island of Corfu” and that shines through in this book where we are taken on a lovely tour (thank you Andras).
Having holidayed there myself, I was able to picture the warm, sandy beaches, glistening azure sea and green, rugged mountains perfectly but even if I had never visited, Mandy’s descriptions would have been enough.
If you’re looking for a book to take away with you, I’d recommend this one – as long as you make sure you sit far from other people while you’re reading (just in case your guffaws are as loud as mine).

With thanks to Ebury Digital (via NetGalley) for the ARC in return for an honest review.

I'm a big fan of Mandy's writing so as soon as I saw that her latest release was next on my 'to read' list I knew I was in for a treat!

I didn't warm to Tess straight away, I had to learn a little bit about her past to allow me to understand her behaviour. As events unfolded I laughed, I cringed and I even felt a little bit sad but the most important thing is that I definitely warmed to Tess. She was quick-witted and kind, just a little bit lost to begin with. In my opinion this was totally understandable considering what had happened to her but I'm afraid you'll have to read the book to find out what I'm talking about here.

The whole fake girlfriend thing was brilliant and so much fun to read! In classic Mandy Baggot style, the characters went through a series of crazy scenes that thoroughly entertained me and kept me flipping the pages.

Tess's friend Sonya was such a charming character and her story continued to keep me guessing in a 'is he, isn't he' way. She was a fabulous supporting character who I would love to see more of, hint hint Mandy 😉.

Single for the Summer was a Greek wonderland of sun, great food and getting away from it all. The perfect summer read.

It is so refreshing to pick up a Mandy Baggot book and have a lighthearted, laugh out loud read. This is another fab book by Mandy that I have thoroughly enjoyed. It has it all....laughter, tears and 'OMG really' moments! How Mandy comes up with all these amazing characters is beyond me. Tess is seemingly commitment phobic with her 6 weeks then move on rule......in fact it's due to an unwanted propsal that has Tess boarding a plane to escape from her suitor.  I loved Tess's best friend, Sonya,  with all her ailments....had me belly laughing at times. Andras is our hunk in this book but he also has issues of his own....his fiercely family-value led mother wants him to marry a family friend, but Andras has other ideas and cue a chance meeting at a bar and our 2 main characters are very bizarrely thrown together. This book has Tess and Andras trying to avoid what is happening, but slowly and surely an attraction between them is sparked. As with all of Mandy's amazing storylines....nothing can be that straightforward! Tess is under strict instructions from Sonya to 'stay single for the summer' and poor Andras is so worried about his mother's influence that he is literally running from her insistence to marry a lovely Greek girl.
Mandy's knowledge of all things Greek is highly evident and she very obviously researches every single thing that goes into her books...from Greek culture to the taste of the Greek food. Her descriptions can take you away from a rainy afternoon here to the sunkissed beaches of Corfu.
Mandy's books always have a fantastic sense of humour and are full to bursting with amazing content. Her storylines always have you hooked from start to finish and you develop an affiliation for the characters that makes you want the very best for them.
I cannot recommend this book enough....in fact
I would say it's my favourite Mandy Baggot book so far and I cannot wait to see what Mandy has in store for us next.
