When it comes to dating she has one rule: after six weeks with a guy, she ends it. So when her heartbroken best friend invites her for a girly getaway in Corfu, Tess is sure she can stick to their pact to stay single for the summer.

But then she meets the gorgeous restaurateur Andras…

To keep his overbearing mother off his back, Tess agrees to pretend to date him. But as the two spend time together, Tess begins to realise that this fake relationship is starting to feel like the best one she’s ever had…

Travel Guide

Corfu with Mandy Baggott

Visit Greece/Corfu


Andras’s restaurant in the book, Georgiou’s Taverna was inspired by Thomas’s Taverna on the beach of Kalami with a dash of Nikolas’s Taverna in the neighbouring bay of Agni. Many a home-cooked dish was eaten, along with copper flagons full of wine and Greek delicacies ending in the letter ‘a’, in the name of research.


Another location in the novel and you have to go and see the harbour!


On one of the boat trips Andras takes Sonya and Tess on, they sail down the coast to Nissaki

Agios Spyridon

Something very special happens here. It’s a lovely village to wander around


The women visit the monastery at Paleokastritsa in the novel. Mandy wore clothes over her clothes just like Tess in the book
