Book Review: One Greek Summer By Kate Frost

Plot:

When Harlow Sands arrives on an idyllic Greek island to work on a big budget movie, it should be the opportunity of a lifetime. But her uncertainty over the direction of her life and the high expectations of Maeve Fennimore-Bell, her domineering Hollywood producer mum, threatens to ruin her summer on beautiful Skopelos.

Location manager Tyler Reed has his fair share of demons. His and Harlow’s lives have been entwined for over a decade and now forced to work together, their complicated past begins to unravel.

Harlow is desperate to break free and make her own way in the world, but with a fractured family, a long-hidden secret and a need to belong, can her happy-ever-after be found during one Greek summer?

Review:


A cosy romantic read with an excellent location to picture!

If you enjoy Mama Mia – it is mentioned a lot in this novel.

The main character feels as if she is constantly pressured to have her mother’s career and instead of speaking about it, she complains all the time, yet she is quite successful in the film directing business.
When they are filming in Greece, she comes across a man who swoons her. I don’t understand her relationship with co-worker Tyler (former FWB arrangement).

Overall, it does try to capture a holiday read which it did manage to accomplish.
I really enjoyed the descriptions of the places on the island including the Olive Grove Cafe, it sounds all so cute.

Also, I listened to this so I’m not 100% sure but I thought I heard the title chapter of an Epilogue twice? If so, the first time I heard it before Harlow made some life changing decisions, I felt it was very unnecessary to have an Epilogue at that point. 

3/5 Stars
