Review: Those Summer Nights by Mandy Baggot

30040488

Imogen Charlton is sorted. Dead-beat husband? History. Dream job? Application sent. But then her impulsive brother, Harry, spends every last penny on a Greek restaurant in Corfu, and is determined to run it himself. It’s up to Imogen to bring him to his senses. When sexy millionaire Panos Dimitriou offers to buy back his family taverna, Imogen wonders if all her prayers have been answered (and all her fantasies about to come true). But Harry won’t budge, and his enthusiasm is infectious. Bright pink bougainvillea tumbling over whitewashed walls, endless blue skies, the sparkling Mediterranean; it’s hard not to fall for Corfu. And that’s not all Imogen is falling for…As the sparks of passion fly between Imogen and Panos, is Imogen having second thoughts on selling the restaurant? Will she have to choose between love and a new dream?

Review

Last year I had the pleasure of reviewing Mandy Baggot’s Truly, Madly, Greekly . It was my first book by Baggot and I simply loved it. This time around she comes back with a new summer read, Those Summer Nights, and I jumped right in to request this ARC. One of the things that keep me bringing back to her books is Baggot’s ability to transport the reader to Greece with her detailed descriptions of Corfu and the delicious Greek food.  I love Greece, and I had the opportunity to go to Corfu many years ago. Unfortunately, Corfu is nowhere near my future travel plans so reading this book really made me go back to that place and experience a little bit of Greece one more time. I liked Imogen and Harry a lot. I had very mixed feelings about Panos at first, but I loved Imogen and Panos interaction as the book went on. This is another great summer read. It’s sexy, its exotic, and romantic. I definitely recommend it.

I would like to thank Bookouture and Netgalley for allowing me to read an early copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

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?

Lacey is planning a wedding in the beautiful island of Corfu and brings her older sister Ellen along for the ride. The Blue Vue Hotel is an all-inclusive resort in the Greek Island of Corfu, in the Ionian Sea, surrounded by the Albanian Mountains. What the girls were not expecting was the other perks that came with the package. Yan and Sergei are two dazzling handsome and sexy guys who run the animation team of the hotel. Soon the sisters were carried away from their original plans to embark on an adventure that neither one was ever expecting.

This was my first book by author Mandy Baggot, and I have to say, WOW, I loved her style! This book is a great spring/summer read, with just the right amount of fun, romance and adventure. It was such a change of pace for me. After reading deeper and serious topics found on my other reviews: Ruby and I Am Forbidden; I truly, madly, loved this book. I’m looking forward to reading more books from this author.

I would like to thank Bookouture and Netgalley for allowing me to read an early copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. This book is scheduled to be published on May 22, 2015.
