BLOG TOUR - What Happens in Greece


Buying a rundown cottage in Greece. A crazy, wine-fuelled idea, or the best decision she’s ever made?

Charlotte takes in the scene. To the left, her (ex?) fiancĂ©’s retreating back as he runs back to civilisation; in front, the crumbling Greek island farmhouse she thought was their shared dream; and just below, a goat munching merrily on her sunhat…

At first, Jamie had leapt at Charlotte’s idea to permanently swap drizzly Chester for sun-drenched Crete. Now it looks like she’ll be living this dream alone. Devastated but determined, she rolls up her sleeves and gets to work turning the ramshackle house into her forever home. At least 
the local community welcomes her with open arms, including sexy restaurant-owner-slash-handyman, Darius.

Taking a sledgehammer to her old life, and snacking on homemade honey cake on her breaks, Charlotte begins to see the promise of a future without Jamie. But on a trip back home, he suddenly appears, wanting her back. Faced with 
a choice between the first love who broke her heart and the gorgeous Greek man who has been putting it back together, how will Charlotte choose where she truly belongs?

A totally laugh-out-loud and feel-good summer read about taking a chance on life and love! Perfect for fans of Carole Matthews, Jenny Colgan and My Mamma Mia Summer.

Charlotte had a dream that came into existence. She purchased a cottage in Crete with big dreams. Engaged to Jamie, he willingly accompanied her. However, it soon got old for him and he headed back to the UK, breaking off their engagement. Charlie is not going to give up on her dream, however, and she continues on.

In fact, she decides to open up a bakery in Crete, much like she had when living in the UK. She had previously met someone who would be perfect working for her, and thus Charlie's dream grew even more. One more thing, and that is in the form of Darius, another business owner and neighbor. They are both quite drawn to one another, but Charlie is still nursing a broken heart. It just might only be a matter of time before the pair see how good they are together, thus making Charlie's dream take on even more meaning.

Sue Roberts always manages to write fabulous location-based books. Books that are beautiful not only in setting, but in the warm characters she develops. Charlie and Darius, as well as the other villagers where Charlie is settling, are truly ideal. This gives this book a place of home in one's heart, proving that dreams can indeed come true.

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.

Sue Roberts lives in Lancashire with her long term partner Derek and has had a lifelong love of writing, encouraged by winning a school writing competition at the age of 11.
She always assumed that ‘one day’ she would write a book, always having a busy household and a job, the idea remained firmly on the back burner but never forgotten.

The inspiration for her first novel came to her on a holiday to a Greek village. Her daughters had left home and suddenly the time had come to write that book!
