There's tension, undercurrents, bad behaviour and lots of flirting.
Out main protagonist Sarah, keeps us informed with her internal chatter that feels very real, and refreshingly Australian. And while she starts out on a holiday to forget her nasty ex, Sarah discovers a great deal more about herself as she unwinds and gets up close and personal with her sailing family.
Tears, tantrums, laughter, and love - a great combination.
This is a book that will keep the smile on your face. The wonderful setting of the Greek Isles really comes to life, with some memorable restaurant meals you can even taste, beaches you can feel yourself swimming in, even a wonderful canine tour guide. So, who does Sarah end up with, Josh? James? Neither? Haha, I'm not letting you in on that secret. You'll have to read it for yourselves. I'm hoping Sandy Barker has more adventures in store for Sarah, because I for one really need to know what happens next...
My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
One Summer in Santorini introduces us to Sarah who, like so many of us, just wants to pack up and holiday in the face of heartbreak. She's not looking for anyone new, she simply wants to forget her troubles and enjoy herself - but life has other plans.
I was immediately drawn to this book because the travel descriptions and Sarah were so damn relatable. Most of us know the frustration of long-haul flights, lost wallets, and men (even though we love them so much!).
As we follow Sarah on her boat trip around Greece, she meets weird and wonderful (and beautiful) characters, eats the most amazing food (someone please sign me up) and, as with all good romances - she's faced with a choice. I'm absolutely not going to tell you anything more, you'll have to grab a copy for yourself to see what everyone's raving about.
A cosmopolitan treat, One Summer in Santorini has shades of Mamma Mia with a splash of Shirley Valentine, all washed down with some dolmades and ouzo.

I despised the heroine Cat in the authors second book in this series; That Night in Paris, which is the first book I had read by Sandy Barker, and I found the whole storyline in that dull, immature and uninspiring, and I should definitely called it one and done.
But she pales in comparison to Sarah the annoying harpy from this equally lacklustre offering, what a juvenile, immature woman, who came across as a hormonally challenged teen a lot of the time. I'll be honest this was a character I'd happily throat punch if I had the opportunity, definitely an author who I will be avoiding in the future, the writing style and characterisations just weren't for me.
Real shame as I have discovered some absolutely stellar new authors this year, Sandy Barker not being one of them.
Side note, my hubby hasn't read in years and when he saw what I was reading (and having a wild love for Greece from his travels) he wanted to read this book ... not only did he finish reading it in record time but he also really enjoyed it and also can't wait to read more from Sandy Barker.
