One Greek Summer by Kate Frost *AD gifted

I was provided with a free ebook of One Greek Summer by Kate Frost ahead of the blog tour.

This was like summer in book form, i felt the sun on my skin as I read even as it poured with freezing rain outside.

5 Word Review: Work, responsibility, family, friendship, love. 

Warning: this book will make you hungry. 

Not going to lie, almost every highlight in this book from me was of food I wanted to eat. My mouth was watering and by half way through I had given up, made a Greek salad, and opened a bottle of red wine. 

Harlow has a pretty complicated if privileged life, and I loved that she explored her own privilege in the story. She was humble and caring, and wanted to prove herself as worthy of her accomplishments. Her family life is a bit of a mess, especially when it comes to her mother, and her ex-friend-with-benefits adds a whole other layer of complicated on location. The family dynamic isn't typical, but it was one I lived. Her step-mum and father are gems. 

Adonis is... And Adonis. I love that as much as he lived up to his gorgeous name, he was layered and a bit messy too. He has a heart of gold. 

It may be early March in the real world, but I was transported directly to a Greek island in summer. I could feel the heat of the sun, the refreshing kiss of the ocean, the sweat beading on my skin. The setting is glorious, every location perfect in so many ways, and backed up by the delicious food and delectable romance. I loved the little peeks at the behind the scenes of the film industry. 

I lived all the little Mamma Mia references too, although they made me feel old! Harlow watched it as a teen and err... I was older than that. 

This book couldn't be more perfect for brightening your day. I read it on a windy hillside in the borders, sheltering from the rain and cooried up in a blanket, but I felt like I was on the island with Harlow. I can't wait to read this again in the height of summer with a meze and wine.

  1. I know it's not in any way relevant to your review, but I could very much do with a Greek summer. I love books that make me hungry.

  2. That cover pure escapism and then I read your review. It's a capricious summer holiday in a book. No reason not to read a 2nd time

  3. That cover is escapism in itself. And your review is another transport in words.
