Truly, Madly, Greekly isn't just another holiday romance story. Right up until the end you don't really know what will happen. You hope you know, but you are kept guessing! It's an intelligent. contemporary romance and one I finished reading with a big smile on my face. The cover says it's the perfect summer read but I would say this is perfect for reading anytime!
My thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for the review copy.
What a fabulous summer read! Mandy Baggot has created a book that is fun, fabulous, full of sizzling moments to get you in the mood for some summer lovin'!
Ellen and her sister Lacey are visiting Corfu, in the name of research, to plan Lacey's 'Big Fat Greek wedding'. Lacey is set on this big volumptious OTT wedding and soon goes into manic Bridezilla mode. Ellen soon becomes distracted and the gorgeous Yan from the hotel complex animation team takes notice of her and wonders why she is not enjoying herself like her sister.
One of my favourite characters was Yan, I loved his courageness, his vulnerability, his compassion, his hope, his dream and his gorgeousness! I'm definitely Team Yan :)
We get to know more about the lives of Ellen and Yan and they both discover they have unfulfilled dreams waiting to be given the go ahead.
Mandy has also created some wonderful subsidiary characters, I particularly liked a duo act in the animation team in the name of Dasha and Sergei. They sounded like a fun team and would definitely make your holiday memorable. The antics this pair got up to were hilarious.
I would recommend you grab hold of this novel whether you are travelling overseas of enjoying timeout at home. Make yourself a fruity drink and stick an umbrella in for authenticity. Sit back and relax and enjoy the fun, frolics and drama that Ellen and Lacey have in Greece. 5/5* read.
Baggot has done a great job of setting the scenes for the reader... I could almost feel the sun on my face and feel the sand beneath my feet (although that could have been sleep deprivation and wishful thinking). And the characters are great. They are far from perfect, they each have issues in their past they would rather nobody found out about (no spoilers)... and despite those secrets they keep hidden from others, they find themselves drawn to each other and opening up in ways they never thought they would.
I've never really understood when people have said "fab beach reads" before but this... this is the ideal book to read just before you go on holiday to get you in the mood.
I think I knew I was going to enjoy this book when in the first chapter there is the first encounter with Yan, who mentions he is part of the animation team at the hotel in Corfu. Added to the knowledge that it was an All Inclusive holiday, and that is enough for me to know that the story was going to based in the exact sort of hotel I would pick for myself on holiday. There is nothing I like more than eye-ing up sexy members of animation, and I was intrigued to see what would happen to Ellen and Lacey on their holiday there.
Lets start with the cover, its a stunning image that brings up the imagery of a holiday, and the tag line "Sizzling summer reading" I can assure you is telling the truth. This is an incredibly summery read, one that if you don't have the means to read it on a beach, then find a warm spot somewhere, relax, read this book and you will completely believe you are in Corfu with Ellen, Lacey and Yan.
Ellen and Lacey are off to Corfu, to the Blue Vue Hotel, where Lacey is hoping to plan, and have her wedding. Lacey fell in love with the wedding venue at the hotel, and having dragged Ellen around various UK venues, is now taking her to Corfu to look at this one.
Ellen has been going through a tough time recently, although she has kept it all secret from her loved ones, and doesn't really want to be away from the office, let alone relax into a holiday.Read more ›
