Get your summer off to a steamy start with Mandy Baggot and her sizzling new read, Truly Madly Greekly.
We’ve got an all inclusive tour chock-a-block with reviews, guest posts and a giveaway, as the book scorches a trail across a variety of blogs!
What they say:
Sun, sea and a sexy stranger – a whole lot of fun just got a lot more complicated.
Capable, confident and career-driven, Ellen had her dream job and a marriage proposal from boyfriend Ross. Life was good, her future set. Until it wasn’t and everything fell apart…
Whisked off to the beautiful island of Corfu to plan her sister Lacey’s big, fat, Greek wedding, Ellen is hoping some time out will help clear her head and heal her heart. But letting go of her past is not going to be easy.
With Lacey in full on Bridezilla mode, Ellen is soon distracted from her own problems. And when the all-inclusive treats on offer at hotel Blue Vue include one gorgeous, brooding Adonis – Yan – Ellen finds him difficult to resist.
But Ellen isn’t looking for love or lust, or anything involving too much ouzo…or is she?
Fans of Lucy Diamond, Miranda Dickinson and Lindsey Kelk will want to escape to Corfu with Mandy Baggot this summer.
What we say – review by Charlotte Foreman:
This summer, Mandy Baggot gives her readers a pretty heady combo: sun, sea, romance and a truck load of drama.
Knowing author Mandy Baggot has based the setting on her favourite Greek resort made the whole thing pop. It felt real and I loved that feeling – I CAN actually go there if I want! The characters and their individual dramas caught my interest big time, as there’s nothing like a little romance and intrigue to get a reader’s juices flowing.
Swept up in everything Corfu – the blue skies, hot sun and the alcohol – I was holidaying between the pages and, frankly, didn’t want to come home. I had a smile on face from the comical flight with Ellen and Lacey, right up until the end where I got all emosh.
I might have a make a repeat visit fairly soon
