81HLd9MSlVL._SL1500_What they say:Sun, sea and a sexy stranger - a whole lot of fun just got a lot more complicated. Capable, confident and career-driven, Ellen had her dream job and a marriage proposal from boyfriend Ross. Life was good, her future set. Until it wasn’t and everything fell apart… Whisked off to the beautiful island of Corfu to plan her sister Lacey’s big, fat, Greek wedding, Ellen is hoping some time out will help clear her head and heal her heart. But letting go of her past is not going to be easy. With Lacey in full on Bridezilla mode, Ellen is soon distracted from her own problems. And when the all-inclusive treats on offer at hotel Blue Vue include one gorgeous, brooding Adonis – Yan – Ellen finds him difficult to resist. But Ellen isn’t looking for love or lust, or anything involving too much ouzo…or is she? 

Fans of Lucy Diamond, Miranda Dickinson and Lindsey Kelk will want to escape to Corfu with Mandy Baggot this summer. 

 Review: When you pick a Mandy Baggot book, you know you're in for a lot of drama, delicious men and a good romance and Truly, Madly, Greekly is not an exception. Mandy takes us to the Greek Island of Corfu where the scenery is stunning and the men even more. But Ellen and her sister Lacey are not looking for men. Lacey is checking Hotel Blue Vue as a venue for her wedding, and Ellen has so many personal, economical and work problems back home that has no intention to relax in this dream vacation. But the entertaining team is determined to entertain these two...

The story is told from Ellen's point of view but also from Yan's, the Bulgarian entertainer in the hotel who is hiding big secrets from everyone. As the story unfolds, we get bit and pieces of their past and see how they get closer and closer. I always enjoy books that have both the woman and the man's point of view because I always feel like I get to know them both better and understand them better. In this case, I found it very interesting to read about Yan's feelings and impressions, given that with his broken English and brusque manner it would have been difficult to get him only from Ellen's point of view. And at the end, he was by far my favourite character in the story and not only for his Greek god looks.

But this is not a only a read about a vacation fling. If something can go wrong in the story, it does. And with a sister like Lacey, a lot of things can go wrong. She was really annoying, capricious and childish and I really don't know how Ellen could be so nice to her. But in the story there's so much drama that I got a bit overwhelmed at some point. I certainly didn't see most of the twists coming but Mandy wrapped it up very well at the end. All the story lines were resolved and we got the perfect ending for this crazy and entertaining story.

So if you want to escape to a beautiful Island in the Mediterranean for the holiday of a lifetime, I recommend you pick Truly Madly Greekly, it won't let you even breath! Also, I was certainly impressed with Mandy's descriptions of the island of Corfu and I can't wait now to visit for myself as it sounds like a magical place.
