I love Mandy Baggot’s stories they always manage to whisk me away from everyday life and immerse me in a fun story with lively characters and romance at the heart of it all. So did One Last Greek Summer do this? Of course it did! In this story we meet Beth who on having her divorce finalised ends up in Greece all thanks to her best friend Heidi. I have to say that I loved this pair they made me smile, giggle and wonder at what they would get up to next. I was right there willing them on in their adventure. I also loved that there was a blast from the past for Beth in the form of Alex and even after all those years there’s still a gorgeous chemistry bubbling away.
The story moves at a great pace, especially when these two best friends hop on a plane and hope to live a little and recreate some of their earlier escapades along with making some entertaining new memories! There is romance within this story but it is also about friendship and finding your way even if you might have lost sight of a few things. So overall you get a wonderful combination that had me smiling away to myself.
If you want a fun and ultimately uplifting book then look no further as One Last Greek Summer shows you that second chances are possible sometimes you just have to go out there and take that leap. With a setting that instantly made me want to jet off to Greece! Even though that isn’t possible Mandy Baggot brought the sights, the food and the feel good factor to life making me feel as if I was right there experiencing it all even though I never left my living room. I also have to say that the mouth watering descriptions of food pretty much left me permanently hungry!
One Last Greek Summer is a fun, light and gorgeous second chance romance that is an ideal summer read but it’s also a story that can whisk you away to the sun even on a cloudy day!
