Just got back from a fabulous week on the stunning island of Kethos. That’s what it feels like anyway and I feel like right away.
Alice Archer is a plain Jane in a dreary dead-end job with a dull and boring life. Nobody in her life listens to her or notices her except for her father who is in a care home. When her demanding sister Stella offers her a place on a week’s holiday to the Greek island of Kethos, it sounds like just what she needs just as long as she can put up with Stella and her difficult ways.
When she arrives, she leaves Stella by the pool working on her tan and visits the gardens at Villa Argenti, where she meets handsome gardener
Milo who tells her that people
wish upon the statue of Aphrodite.
Though she doesn’t believe in this myth, she takes the opportunity to
make a wish that men notice her. When Milo offers to take her out for a day, she decides it’s
about time she started to enjoy herself and accepts his offer. Men suddenly start to notice her and wondering
whether it is co-incidence or whether her wish has come true. Is this just a holiday romance or is it true
love? Is Milo what he seems to be or is he hiding a secret from ? Alice
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and read it on a particularly rainy afternoon which made the
appealing for me. I easily imagined the villa
that Stella and Alice stayed in and wanted to stay there myself. I could picture myself on the back of island
of Kethos Milo’s bike, with the wind in my hair seeing the spectacular
views and could definitely see myself wandering around and smelling the amazing aromas coming from the flowers in the gardens of
This morning, I'm still thinking about Kethos. I feel like booking a holiday to this gorgeous island and exploring it myself. I will definitely be looking out for Milo and
around every corner. I think most of the ladies who read this book might just fall a little bit in love with Milo! Alice
