REVIEW & GIVEAWAY of A Greek Affair by Linn B. Halton

A Greek Affair

More than just a holiday romance?

Her daughter, her job and divorcing her untrustworthy ex are Leah’s main priorities. She isn’t really bothered that her life might be missing a few things. But after winning a prestigious travel blogger award, she’s inundated with offers to review glamorous holiday destinations. Lying around drinking exotic cocktails and being paid for it! What could be better?

Perhaps a romantic trip to idyllic Greece to find the one man who might make Leah risk her heart again…

My Thoughts…

I am a blogger, I can relate to Leah’s time and energy that she puts into her travel blog.  I love that she is able to support her family, take vacations that she doesn’t have to pay for but has to write about, and can enjoy life after being left with a ton of debt, a baby, and life to rebuild when her husband bails on her.   She shows her strength, determination, and motherly grit just to make ends meet and make a great life for her daughter.   

I took away from this book how it really takes a village to raise a child.    Leah’s parents step up and help her with daughter anytime they can.  They enjoy spending time with her, shower her with love, and support her every time they can.   They also support Leah’s blog, her travels, and encourage her to find happiness again.  

The friendships, the blogger relationships, and the amazing parenting all make this book realistic.    I found myself wanting to be part of their family.  I wanted to travel with Leah and meet the amazing people she did.
