THE GREEK ESCAPE, by Karen Swan, PanMacmillan


A scorching and sensational summer novel from the Globe and Mail bestselling author of The Paris Secret and The Rome Affair. Set between the skyscrapers of Manhattan and the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean, The Greek Escape will leave you breathless as each twist unfolds. Running from heartbreak, Chloe Marston leaves her old life in London for a fresh start in New York. Working at a luxury concierge company, she makes other people’s lives run perfectly, even if her own has ground to a halt. But a terrible accident forces her to step into a new role, up close and personal with the company’s most esteemed and powerful clients.

Charismatic Joe Lincoln is one of them and his every wish is her command, so when he asks her to find him a secluded holiday home in the Greek Islands, she sets about sourcing the perfect retreat. But when Tom, her ex, unexpectedly shows up in Manhattan and the stability of her new life is thrown off-balance again, Chloe jumps at the chance to help Joe inspect the holiday house. Escaping to Greece will give her the time and space to decide where her future truly lies. Tom is the man she has loved for so long but he has hurt her before – can she give him another chance? And as she draws closer to Joe, does she even want to? As magnetic as he is mysterious, there’s an undeniable chemistry between them that she can’t resist. But whatever her heart is telling her, she’s in over her head – another client’s wife has mysteriously disappeared and seriously allegations about Joe threaten more than just her happiness. Who can she trust? And will Chloe uncover the truth in time?

I was sent this book in exchange for my honest review.

Here it is! The next Karen Swan release! As some of you may remember, I had the pleasure of interviewing Karen Swan and reviewing a couple of her other books. My  interview.

The Greek Escape is another home run! Now before you jump all over me for being bias, I have to tell you, I went into this book with no real idea as to what it was about.  I was hoping it would not mirror any of the others and it didn’t! Well, not character wise that is.

Chloe is not your strong, confident business woman. She is fractured from a love gone wrong, and although down to earth and hard working, not used to the new position she finds herself in where she’s forced to deal with the demands of a rich, weird clientele.

Set in another wonderful location with excellently described settings, Chloe is surrounded by excellent supportive secondary characters, which she’ll need to deal with the darker, mysterious side of this story and the handsome new love interest.

A great summer read, sure to please all Karen Swan fans. I highly recommend this book.
