More than just a holiday romance?
Her daughter, her job and divorcing her untrustworthy ex are Leah’s main priorities. She isn’t really
bothered that her life might be missing a few things. But after winning a prestigious travel blogger
award, she’s inundated with offers to review glamorous holiday destinations. Lying around drinking
exotic cocktails and being paid for it! What could be better?
Perhaps a romantic trip to idyllic Greece to find the one man who might make Leah risk her heart

Thank you to the author and Rachel’s Random Resources for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
This is such a great little feel-good kind of book and was a perfect read for over Christmas! What immediately made me want to read this book was the fact it was set in Greece as well as following the life of a single mom travel blogger, because let’s be honest how great is it to fantasise about being paid to travel to new and exotic places with a little bit of romance thrown in for good measure!
The story follows Leah and her daughter Rosie as they navigate their new world as such after winning a travel blogger award. The story itself did not start of how I was expecting and carried on very much it’s own path throughout the book, which is great, as you never completely know the direction it will go. In regards to the characters, you really got a sense of Leah and her struggles and it was great for all the ways it was able to really include Rosie as well. You really did end up rooting for these characters. There are a few what I like to call bonus characters as well, which really help to spice up the story. I did feel like the entire story had a satisfying ending and concluded all of the stories I wanted concluding.
I also really enjoyed the writing itself as it had some truly great descriptions of Athens and Greece which of course just really makes me want to go and visit. Maybe next year New Zealand is a little too far to pop over for a quick visit!
