Summary

Featuring an exclusive message from the author, listen to the escapist Sunday Times best-selling debut from the nation’s best loved TV presenter, Carol Kirkwood. 

One woman returns to the island that changed her life forever.

A-list actress Shauna Jackson has the perfect life. Fame, fortune, marriage. Or so it seems.

Running from a scandal, Shauna flees to the place that changed her life 20 years ago, the idyllic Greek island of Ithos.

Captivated once more by the azure seas and scented olive groves, bittersweet memories resurface of one summer, one unforgettable man and a long-hidden secret.

Shauna can escape Hollywood, but can she escape her past?

Cringey

Listening to this book gave me the same cringey vibes as the early rounds of a talent show.
It’s completely overwritten, trite and full of product placement. I found it very jarring one moment and the next realised I’d completely zoned out.

Wonderful Story

I just loved this book, in fact I really couldn't wait to hear more. I actually listen to the Hotel on the Riviera first, in hindsight if you are reading this post read Under A Greek Moon first. It just give you a little more insight to the characters.
And the narrator fitted the part totally.

Can't wait for number three as I am sure there will be.

I’m so sad that it’s finished

I loved this audiobook. Apart from Carol’s wonderful descriptions of the island, she had some very identifiable characters. I’ll be returning to Shona and the others in the depths of winter to cheer me up ☀️.
Downloading your new book next 😄

Total rot

Don't waste a credit. Long drawn out story about nothing. Absolutely no atmosphere at all.
