Review - Out of The Blue - Belinda Jones

I absolutely loved this book! 

It was one of those mischievous books that I just couldn’t put down from the moment I picked it up; I could imagine myself in all of the exotic locations that were described by the author. 

Selena thought that her life was perfect, working on a cruise ship, she could spend time in glamorous locations around the world; she wasn't tied down by anyone or anyplace and her life was one big ball! 

When her best friend abandoned her when she was due to visit her on leave, Selena succumbed to the pleading of gorgeous womaniser Alekos, who she had managed to avoid on the ship, and reluctantly agreed to accompany him, working in his brother’s water sports business on the beautiful island of Crete.  The potent magic and the fascinating mythical history of this stunning island, had Selena (and me just a little) slowly but surely falling in love with this wonderful man, and without giving the plot away, experiencing complications along the way. 

Another truly well written book by Belinda Jones, which transports you to a world of basking in the Cretan sunshine, smelling and tasting the delicious food on offer, included a number of hilarious moments to make you laugh out loud.  An excellent read, I felt the deep emotions from each of the characters, and I couldn’t wait to find out what happened in this fabulous love story and I hoped and prayed for a happy ending.  Was I disappointed with the ending?  You’ll just have to read it for yourself and see!
