A wonderful review for The Heiress of Santorini by TLBC's Book Blog


4 stars!  Review copy provided. 

I really enjoyed this book. It had me guessing until the end. I thought the writing was well done and the story intrigued me. Mark, was he a good guy? Who was her grandfather really?  And who is behind John's mysterious disappearance? Every time I thought I got it right I was wrong and I really like when a book keeps me guessing. 

Being a romance junkie something was slightly missing for me. I felt the initial connection between Mark and Alexandra but it seemed to fade into the background with everything else going on. When I read a romance novel I like the build up of the H and h as the book goes on and to me it just leveled off. I found Alexandra and Mark to have good chemistry so I think with a little more about them, how they connected and why they connected the way they did would have helped me. Don't get me wrong it's there but just not as pronounced as I would have liked.
It was also nice getting into everyone's head a little in the book. I love books told from a first persons POV but the way this was written was unique because it was told in the third person but you also get a peak into what they were thinking. 

Reading about Greece and the description of the island was very well done, but not over done, I could definitely picture myself there. The description in the book in general was terrific and not over the top. This book takes you from Georgia, to New York and Greece...making me feel like I was right there with the characters.

All in all a great book with a lot of suspense and mystery that I would recommend reading.
