Review: Truly, Madly, Greekly by Mandy Baggot

The Blurb

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 Vueinclude 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?

The Review

Ellen, along with her sister Lacey, has travelled to Greece scouting the perfect location for Lacey’s wedding. Ellen spends the first part of her holiday worried about her life back home: her job, where she lives and also about a secret that she is keeping that could have life changing implications.

Then she meets Yan.

Yan works on the hotels entertainment team and knows that it is forbidden to fraternise with the guests yet he is drawn to Ellen. Equally, she can’t seem to resist him. But can they keep their want for each other a secret?

Baggot’s tale of sisters on holiday is a real feel good read with likeable characters and an interesting storyline. Besides your basic holiday romance the storylines within Truly, Madly, Greekly also have a lot of depth. Baggot always manages to tackle unusual and quirky (yet very realistic) plot lines.

In Yan, she has created a perfect hero. He has all the attributes that you would want in a male lead. Ellen is perfectly flawed. She has moments of strength that ooze on the page but enough vulnerability to make you empathise with her.

Truly, Madly, Greekly is the story of self discovery and acceptance; a book that is chock full of heart and good feelings. More than anything, Truly, Madly, Greekly will make you want to go on your jolly holidays; this book is the perfect accompaniment for those long days lying on the beach. So don’t delay, grab a towel, a drink with an ice and a slice because you are about to go on a romantic Greek holiday and it is going to be one that you won’t forget!

Truly Madly Greekly by Mandy Baggot is available now.
