chances A Greek Affair tells the story of Leah, a travel blogger, and her daughter, Rosie Leah has been nominated in the Top Travel Blog category and is attending the awards ceremony with no expectations of winning She is the new kid on the block, as it were, having expanded her freelance photography website to include holiday destinations After a lucky chance encounter which resulted in an interview going viral, Leah s website is well and truly out there She s had a rough several years after being deserted by her husband, who disappeared with her twin sister leaving a mountain of debts and two devastated families As a single mother, it s taken her years to pay off the money owed.It looks like Leah s fortunes are about to turn around as she is completely unprepared and incredulous when the name of her blog is announced as the winner It s an important award and will mean big sponsorship deals and a lot of travel, not to mentionmoney which will alleviate much of the stress she been under We follow Leah as she tries to balance her working and personal lives with bringing up her daughter, while trying to make sure their needs are met as much as possible Her parents are very supportive as Leah is still trying to deal with the fall out from the disappearance and deceit of her twin and husband, but losing a daughter means they are also suffering Leah, and Rosie who contributes to the blog, meet people during Leah s assignments who have a huge impact on their lives They all, including Leah, have issues to work through before they can move on The characters are well drawn and the writing flows nicely Leah s relationships with her daughter and parents is particularly well portrayed I enjoyed the blogging aspect of the story and the descriptions of the travel destinations really popped, bringing much colour and interesting facts to the narrative Leah s first assignment is a Mediterranean cruise, then a trip to Greece The detailed account of Athens is incredibly vibrant but I think I d have much the same trouble as Leah when it comes to heights and glass walkways.There are serious and relevant themes covered sensitively in the story which give it depth and realism as well as empathy for the characters I chose to read and review A Greek Affair courtesy of Rachel s Random Resources via NetGalley Warm, uplifting, and wonderfully descriptive A

reading Christmas stories but on the other hand I am quite happy to leave them behind for about a year and I was so looking forward to start a book partly taking place in sunny Greece I do admit that the festive season also gives you a warm feeling but I am stilla sun, sea and sand kind of girl Give me blue skies and seas and white beaches and I am packing my suitcase.Well this book made me want to jump on a plane and read it under an umbrella basking in the warm weather, but I wi I love reading Christmas stories but on the other hand I am quite happy to leave them behind for about a year and I was so looking forward to start a book partly taking place in sunny Greece I do admit that the festive season also gives you a warm feeling but I am stilla sun, sea and sand kind of girl Give me blue skies and seas and white beaches and I am packing my suitcase.Well this book made me want to jump on a plane and read it under an umbrella basking in the warm weather, but I will have to make do by reading it at home under a cosy blanket.There are a lot of descriptions in the book about nature and interior designs I like that because I am a very visual person and I like to be able to picture exactly what the background is In this case it was very detailed but I think it was a very good call due to the main character s occupation It was like killing two birds with one stone resulting in a perfect fit.The story is about love lost and found again, coming to terms with the past and looking forward to the future and about making difficult decisions in the process.I liked the book and I was pleased there was an epilogue to give us a glimpse into the future I can say, without any doubt, that my first read of the new year was a success 4 stars.Thank you, Linn B Halton and

Christmas decorations are a dim memory and we are waiting for the plop of the credit card bills on the mat, our thoughts inevitably turn with longing to the hot, sunny days and relaxed, scented evenings of our summer holidays Or is that just me This is the first year for the last five when January holiday planning hasn t meant organising and selling them to other people, so instead I am indulging my daydreams through reading and my first book set in in warmer climes has been A Greek Affair by Linn B Halton, and it has been the perfect one to cheer up these early days of the new year which can often feel a little flat and depressing.Linn is whisking us off, firstly on a cruise in the Med, and then to the ancient and imposing city of Athens with the heroine of her new book, Leah, a struggling single mother still dealing with the fallout of being abandoned by her husband and trying her best to make a good life for her daughter, Rosie She is single minded and focused on her goals until fate or is it the Greek gods throw not one, but two, handsome men in to her path This book was everything you would expect from a novel with travel as a central theme and I really enjoyed the blogger angle, which I am surprised has not featured inrecent books maybe I m just reading the wrong books but actually, the book goes far beyond a superficial, holiday romance story.As a single parent myself, this book tackles some real emotional truths about the hardships of that condition in an honest but sensitive way and I was totally in tune and sympathetic with what Leah was going through in this book Trying to balance the needs of young children with the emotional demands of your own life is a very tricky path to navigate, and one whichandwomen will be able to relate to in modern times, and Linn has dealt with it with a real depth of understanding and sensitivity which was a pleasure to read.There is a lot to enjoy in this book The characters are all wonderfully drawn I particularly loved Leah s parents and Harrison, and the exotic settings are brought to life in such a way to satisfy the pickiest armchair traveller Beware though, her descriptions will give you a serious craving for Greek food I am still thinking about the saganaki as I type this However, the real standout aspect of this book for me is the personal struggle of Leah in balancing her own needs with that of her child and the honest portrayal of this dilemma raises this book above the level of simple beach read.Highly recommended for those needing a little sunshine in their lives, coupled with an involving, emotional story
