There's Something about Greece by Sue Roberts ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts 

One holiday could change her life forever.

Despite sharing a name with this author, this is the first book of hers that I've read.  I thought it was a basic romance novel but there was one important addition to the story - the descriptions of the Greek Island of Crete.  After reading all of the beautiful descriptions of the land, I feel like I've been on a mental vacation.

Tania has broken up with her boyfriend and is unhappy with her dead-end job.  Her parents have moved to Spain and she is basically alone.  Her aunt Judith offers her a chance to travel to Crete to help out with the animal rescue site while Judith is recovering from knee surgery.  Growing up she spent a lot of time with her aunt and now that her life has become unfulfilling, she decides that a trip to Crete is just what she needs.

She soon meets Nicos who lives across the road but appears to be grumpy and unfriendly.  That's ok with her because she's busy with the rest of the volunteers taking care of the dogs and mules currently housed at the rescue facility.  Even though they all work hard, there seems to be plenty of time for swimming and going to the small nearby city and going to restaurants and bars there. When Nicos volunteers to help her aunt and she gets to know him better, her interest in him builds even though she isn't sure at first what he thinks of her.  As her time in Greece dwindles away, she has to decide what to do with the rest of her life and whether Nicos will be part of her past or part of her future.

I enjoyed meeting the other volunteers and the budding romance between Tania and Nicos.  I thought that parts of the book were pretty slow and that the book could have been a bit shorter.  Despite that, the descriptions of the beautiful views of the turquoise harbor and white beaches from the little village and descriptions of the views from other parts of the island made this a special book.

Susan Roberts grew up in Michigan but loves the laid-back life at her home in the Piedmont area of North Carolina where she is two hours from the beach to the east and the mountains in the west.  She reads almost anything but her favorite genres are   Southern Fiction and Historical Fiction.
