Those Summer Nights by Mandy Baggot


From Goodreads

Sunshine, soft white sand and a sizzling hot millionaire – you don’t get trouble in paradise, right?

Imogen Charlton is sorted. Dead-beat husband? History. Dream job? Application sent. But then her impulsive brother, Harry, spends every last penny on a Greek restaurant in Corfu, and is determined to run it himself. It’s up to Imogen to bring him to his senses.

When sexy millionaire Panos Dimitriou offers to buy back his family taverna, Imogen wonders if all her prayers have been answered (and all her fantasies about to come true). But Harry won’t budge, and his enthusiasm is infectious.

Bright pink bougainvillea tumbling over whitewashed walls, endless blue skies, the sparkling Mediterranean; it’s hard not to fall for Corfu. And that’s not all Imogen is falling for…

As the sparks of passion fly between Imogen and Panos, is Imogen having second thoughts on selling the restaurant? And will she have to choose between love and a new dream?

This summer, spend long sunny days on the beach, and balmy nights in Greek tavernas on the gorgeous island of Corfu. Perfect for fans of Lucy Diamond, Miranda Dickinson and Lindsey Kelk.
My thoughts
This has a solid 4 stars from me, I'm actually toying with an extra half star.

My thanks to the Publishers and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review. 

This is the frst book by Mandy Baggot that I've read and it's quite plain to see from this one that she has an affinity/liking of Greece. This shines through in her writing.

Imogen's life isn't going to plan as she quite expected it. Her brother decides to buy a restaurant on the Island of Corfu. He's determined that he'll be able to run it and make a go of it himself. He sees this as his chance to regain his life with his estranged wife and family. It's down to Imogen to help make him see sense and realise that this might not be the mend all for his marriage.

Panos Dimitriou might be the answer to all her prayers as he offers to buy back the family restaurant. However, Imogen's brother Harry is not one to be won over so easily.

Can Imogen make him see the error of his ways or do things backfire on her?

As the heat of the Mediterranean island increases in and out of the kitchen, will life ever be the same for Imogen?

A great read that had me engrossed from the first few chapters. I had to know what was going to happen to all the characters. A perfect summer read to be read on one of Those Summer Nights, be it either at home or away.
