A gorgeously escapist summer read set in idyllic Skiathos , and the first in a series of evocative Greek Island holiday novels from the bestselling author of the ESCAPE TO ITALY series.

Grab a cocktail, sit back, relax and Escape to the Islands...

Life is sweet for Joanna Nelson until the day she gets a call from a lawyer in Greece that knocks her for six.

Her father, whom Joanna has never met, has died. Her mum was always reticent to discuss her brief holiday romance many years before on a tiny Greek Island called Skiathos, and all her life Joanna’s tried to fill in the blanks.
It seems her dad ran a small hotel on the island, and according to the lawyer, has left the property to her.

Her boyfriend immediately advises Joanna to sell the place but it seems things aren't so simple. The persuasive lawyer tells her that though now worn and run-down, the hotel is the heart and soul of a small seaside community in Skiathos and it would break her father's heart to see it sold.
Could Joanna perhaps come and see for herself?

Intrigued by the idea of visiting the Greek island and discovering more about her heritage and her parents’ romance, Joanna agrees to visit Skiathos in early spring.
Upon arrival she is very quickly seduced by the soft sand, blue skies and tumbling bougainvillaea, as well as the welcoming Greek community, who are only too happy to impart information about the father she never knew, teach her all about their beloved island and most importantly, reveal the truth about her parents' romance.

And all too soon, Joanna begins to wonder if her mother made a huge mistake in leaving beautiful Skiathos so many years before…
