Booktrailer Review

Susan: @thebooktrailer

What a perfect book for a booktrail! From the very existence of the map to the sense of adventure when Holly travels and Greece opens up in front of her.

The premise of the whole book was exciting. Turtle beach? yes please! Staying in Lithakia – oh go on then! This should be read on a tour to soak up each and every spot on that idyllic map.

This is just the kind of thing I would like to do – follow a treasure hunt trail of clues and find something unexpected at the end. What a sense of romance and fun! Turns out that there is a certain young man who helps her in Greece and I was cheering for them every step of the way.

A real feel good and romantic read but with a real sense of adventure and searching for your own place in the world. I found the messages and the heartwarming scenes really uplifting and the scenery around Zantos, its many beaches, secrets coves and stunning sea creatures to be the perfect background to a story which swept me along on those waves.
