"Winnie, Stella and Frankie have been best friends forever.
When their lives unexpectedly unravel, they spontaneously decide to buy a gorgeous B&B on a remote Greek island. Drenched in hot sun, Villa Valentina is the perfect escape from reality. But when Winnie meets Jesse, their brooding neighbour, she finds that Greece is full of its own complications – not least how attractive he is…
Meanwhile, Frankie and Stella are discovering that Villa Valentina has its own secrets – starting with the large supply of gin in the cellar and the arrival of a famous rock band. A band with one very good-looking member who just might distract Frankie from thoughts of her husband…"
You might remember me taking part in the blog tour for this book where I shared a fun extract that made me desperate to read more.
The thing that really stood out for me was how likeable this trio of women were - I wanted to be part of their little circle! They were all stepping out of their comfort zone by buying the B&B but gradually each of them found a new zone of comfort.
The characters were well defined and so easy to visualise. The author absolutely got it right with such a fabulous mix of personalities, in fact there wasn't a single character that I disliked. By the time I reached the end of the book I was reluctant to let them all go.
The romantic side of the storyline ticked all the boxes for me, it had everything I could possibly want - heated sexual tension, sweet romantic gestures and words that make your heart melt.
The Bed and Breakfast on the Beach was also a book with spirit, I felt buoyed after each reading session. Every scene was so warm and welcoming, it was almost as if this beautiful Greek island was wrapping itself around me and I didn't want to leave!
An unexpected turn of events towards the end left me wondering about the trio's future at Villa Valentina, I sincerely hoped they would be able to recover from the incident and continue with their adventure.
This was a spectacular summer read that captivated me from start to finish.
