Alice Archer is a shy and plain single twenty-eight year old woman, who is out shined by her over confident sister Stella. Who treats poor dormouse Alice like a doormat, always running Alice down. When the chance comes for Alice who has never done anything adventures in her whole life to spend a week on the Greek island of Kethos with Stella, she puts it out of her mind how difficult her sister could be with her demanding ways and instead looks forward to the chance to do something different and to spending some time by the sea and in the sun.
While on holiday Alice meets handsome gardener Milo who notices Alice straight away, in fact Alice starts to notice that since she has arrived on the island normally invisible to men Alice seems to have become most desirable to men, turning heads wherever she goes. Alice had always wondered what it felt like to be beautiful and now on this small island it would seem her dream had come true.
Alice and Milo get close, but is it something more than a holiday romance? And once the holiday is over will the spell be broken?
I am a huge fan of Victoria Connelly’s books, they never disappoint and are the sort of books you can just get lost in. Pure escapism. I loved travelling to Greece in the book and reading Alice and Milo’s story, picturing all the scenic and beautiful pictures views and places on the small island of Kethos, creating the perfect setting for this wonderfully warm romance novel.
