    Thanks to Single For the Summer, I have fallen in love with a man called Andras, and the island of Corfu I was hooked on Tess and Sonya s week in Corfu, and just how much they managed to pack into a week Before we even get to Greece, there is a proposal that sets in motion Tess s willingness to even go on holiday, and her new aversion to scallops Sonya persuades Tess, who is a serial dater and never stays single for longer than a few days at a time, to stay single for the whole holiday..they Thanks to Single For the Summer, I have fallen in love with a man called Andras, and the island of Corfu I was hooked on Tess and Sonya s week in Corfu, and just how much they managed to pack into a week Before we even get to Greece, there is a proposal that sets in motion Tess s willingness to even go on holiday, and her new aversion to scallops Sonya persuades Tess, who is a serial dater and never stays single for longer than a few days at a time, to stay single for the whole holiday..they are allowed to look but that s it Well things don t exactly go according to plan when Andras needs a fake girlfriend for the week to put off his mother s matchmaking and he ropes Tess in play the part In return Tess negotiates for things she and her friend require to make their holiday perfect I absolute loved Andras guiding the girls around the island of Corfu, and from that I got a great feeling of the beauty of the island However what really sets this story apart is Andras brothers wedding that is happening at the end of the week As a fake girlfriend Tess and Sonya are invited to many Corfiot family meals and learn all about Greek wedding customs and traditions I found it really interesting to see just how different English and Greek weddings are We also discover just how important family is to the Greeks, and there is also plenty of delicious sounding Greek Food present too The chemistry between Tess and Andras is clearly present even if both have had enough heartbreak in the past they wouldn t want to acknowledge it From some of the conversations they have its clear to see just how similar they are while being quite different If feels in way like a bit of a story of contrasts, set in a stunning location The other character that is worth a mention is the great four legged friend in this story Hector Hector is one of the best masters of escape I ve read about, and he isn t necessarily the animal you think he is Overall Mandy Baggot has clearly done it again, brought together sun, summer, Greek men and food, and a lovely story altogether is a fantastically summery book I loved being able to read this on a cold summers day in England, as it made me feel warm inside, although I did wish I had read it on my Greek Cruise instead Thank you to Netgalley and Ebury Press for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily

    I m a big fan of Mandy s writing so as soon as I saw that her latest release was next on my to read list I knew I was in for a treat I didn t warm to Tess straight away, I had to learn a little bit about her past to allow me to understand her behaviour As events unfolded I laughed, I cringed and I even felt a little bit sad but the most important thing is that I definitely warmed to Tess She was quick witted and kind, just a little bit lost to begin with In my opinion this was totally under I m a big fan of Mandy s writing so as soon as I saw that her latest release was next on my to read list I knew I was in for a treat I didn t warm to Tess straight away, I had to learn a little bit about her past to allow me to understand her behaviour As events unfolded I laughed, I cringed and I even felt a little bit sad but the most important thing is that I definitely warmed to Tess She was quick witted and kind, just a little bit lost to begin with In my opinion this was totally understandable considering what had happened to her but I m afraid you ll have to read the book to find out what I m talking about here.The whole fake girlfriend thing was brilliant and so much fun to read In classic Mandy Baggot style, the characters went through a series of crazy scenes that thoroughly entertained me and kept me flipping the pages.Tess s friend Sonya was such a charming character and her story continued to keep me guessing in a is he, isn t he way She was a fabulous supporting character who I would love to seeof, hint hint Mandy .Single for the Summer was a Greek wonderland of sun, great food and getting away from it all The perfect summer read

    Tess Parks only ever dates men for six weeks having been jilted at the altar, so she can t see any problem in staying single when she heads on holiday to Corfu with Sonya.Single for the Summer is the perfect summer beach read with wonderful evocative settings Moreover, Mandy Baggot conveys the allure of Corfu so brilliantly that I want to be on a Greek beach right now She weaves elements relating to the senses so effortlessly that I could taste sweet baklava, smell the lavender in the pots nex Tess Parks only ever dates men for six weeks having been jilted at the altar, so she can t see any problem in staying single when she heads on holiday to Corfu with Sonya.Single for the Summer is the perfect summer beach read with wonderful evocative settings Moreover, Mandy Baggot conveys the allure of Corfu so brilliantly that I want to be on a Greek beach right now She weaves elements relating to the senses so effortlessly that I could taste sweet baklava, smell the lavender in the pots next to the taverna and feel the sand beneath my feet I even told my husband I would have to book a holiday there.The plot hinges around a throw away remark from Andras, and his brother Spiro s wedding I learnt a great deal about Greek traditions and the closeness of Greek families with strong matriarchs at the helm so that as well as enjoying a super romantic read, I felt as if I had a cultural experience too.Alongside a panoply of vivid and credible characters that provide humour and Greek authenticity are stand out performances from Tess and Andras Whilst this is a light hearted read with all the elements one would expect from a chick lit style book, there is also real depth to their personalities as both deal with emotional hurt from the past It was impossible not to believe in them completely.What I so enjoy about Mandy Baggot s writing is her vivacious style She can drop in a product or cultural reference like Strictly Come Dancing and make her reader know instantly exactly what she means She has a wicked sense of humour and a deft hand at writing sex scenes too so that reading Single for the Summer is a lovely, life affirming book that lifts the spirits and puts the reader in the right mood for summer and maybe a little romance of their own I loved it

    I have read a few of the author s books before, but my favourite are ones like this This was a lovely summer read with plenty of humour throughout The storyline is a good one, it is written well, and all of the characters are endearing in their own ways.Tess has rules she dates a guy for six weeks and then dumps him, the latest being right at the point where he asks her to marry him Something in her past has made her this way, and we don t find out the exact details of what that is until la I have read a few of the author s books before, but my favourite are ones like this This was a lovely summer read with plenty of humour throughout The storyline is a good one, it is written well, and all of the characters are endearing in their own ways.Tess has rules she dates a guy for six weeks and then dumps him, the latest being right at the point where he asks her to marry him Something in her past has made her this way, and we don t find out the exact details of what that is until later in the story That is not the only thing her past has left her with, however, as we also find out exactly why she doesn t like to walk on the sand in her bare feet any.Andras is a man living in fear of his mother to a certain extent As a Greek man, and with a large extended family living almost on top of him, there are certain expectations His mother thinks that an arranged marriage is best for him, to a lovely Greek woman she approves of But he has other ideas entirely, and he ends up asking Tess to pretend to be his girlfriend This leads to so many hilarious moments, especially the family traditions his family ask her to be a part of in the lead up to a family wedding.This is a brilliant summer read and one which will appeal to anyone looking to escape from everyday life and dream of a holiday somewhere hot Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing a copy
