Going Greek – ARC Book Review

Going Greek: A totally hilarious summer romantic comedy by [Sue Roberts]

Sun, sea and a sizzling romance… the perfect holiday, right? Wrong.

After a work party gone disastrously wrong, Samantha suddenly finds herself jobless and jilted. So when her sister invites Sam to stay at her little whitewashed farmhouse on a Greek island, Sam leaps at the chance to escape. Before long, she’s trundling up the cobbled driveway, almost colliding with sexy neighbour Spyros.

It isn’t all sunshine and smiles though. For every afternoon spent lounging by the pool, cocktail in hand, there is a morning spent adjusting to life with boisterous six-year-old nieces. When Spyros invites Sam to explore the island with him she’s tempted, but with his carefree, live-for-the-moment attitude, he couldn’t be more different to Sam with her five-year plans and high-maintenance hair. One drink, as friends, couldn’t hurt though? Over glasses of fruity Greek wine and honey-sweet baklava, can he – and the other charming locals – help city girl Sam to appreciate the simple pleasures the Greek life has to offer?

Just as Sam is considering ditching her designer gear for good though, she runs in to an old flame from home, and suddenly her London life comes hurtling back. Can her smooth-talking ex convince Sam to return to the concrete jungle, or will the lessons she’s learned from her Greek escape persuade her to stay?

A fun, fabulous and completely laugh-out-loud summer read perfect for fans of Carole Matthews, Jenny Colgan and Sophie Kinsella.

Sam is a successful and famous TV presenter in London. So when suddenly, a sudden fling after a work party gone wrong with people and the media hounding after her, Sam decides to leave behind the drama and move to Greece where her sister, Fiona and her husband, Nick are running a ship farm in a Greek countryside with their twin daughters. While Sam is getting used to her life being non famous in Greece, she meets a handsome Greek Spyros who owns a cheese factory. And then while at the beach, she meets Aaron, her ex-boyfriend who broke her heart years ago and now wants to get back with her.

I have read Sue Robert’s book before and this book didn’t even disappoint me. A warm cozy romance story with Greek culture in the background and the author did a good job drawing the reader into the story and making the reader feel like they are in Greece with the character. For me, the characters are likable, a short read which I was able to finish off the book within a day and quiet enjoyed reading this cheesy warm romantic novel that made me feel like I was in Greece enjoying the beautiful descript scenes in Greek countryside and away from the hustle and bustle of London city. The cover is beautiful and manage to attract the reader (I am fetish for beautiful covers)

Looking forward to read more books from this author and worth four stars!

Many thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.

Sue was born in Liverpool and moved to Lancashire as a teenager where she has lived ever since. Her fifth book ‘As Greek As it Gets.’ will be published on May the18th 2020, with another sunshine book scheduled for August!
When not busy writing, Sue spends her time with her ever growing family and enjoys walking, cinema and travelling. Her first book ‘My Big Greek Summer.’ was inspired by frequent visits to the Island of Rhodes in Greece. All Sue’s books are available from Amazon in kindle and paperback format.
