Review: Single for the Summer by Mandy Baggot

Single for the Summer: The perfect feel-good romantic comedy set on a Greek islandSingle for the Summer: The perfect feel-good romantic comedy set on a Greek island by Mandy Baggot

Tess Parks has made up her mind: love isn’t for her.

When it comes to dating she has one rule: after six weeks with a guy, she ends it. So when her heartbroken best friend invites her for a girly getaway in Corfu, Tess is sure she can stick to their pact to stay single for the summer.

But then she meets the gorgeous restaurateur Andras...

To keep his overbearing mother off his back, Tess agrees to pretend to date him. But as the two spend time together, Tess begins to realise that this fake relationship is starting to feel like the best one she’s ever had…

Claire's Review 4 of 5 Stars

This is the story of Tess and her best friend Sonya, who jet off to Corfu after Sonya's boyfriend Joey pulls out of the holiday and asks for 'a break' to Sonyas dismay. There in Corfu, they meet the sexy Andras and his family and Tess finds it very hard to keep her promise to Sonya of staying Single for the Summer!

The more I read the more I was drawn into the lives of Andras and Tess and found myself hoping they would find a way to get over their problems. A Great summer beach read, or for those lazy summer afternoons.

This is a fantastic read, but then again I wouldn't expect anything less from Mandy. I did find it hard to warm to Tess in the beginning and was frustrated at how Andras wasn't just up front with his mother from the start. I also felt that way too much seemed to happen in the span of a weeks holiday, but it doesn't take anything away from the enjoyment of the book.

A must read, highly recommended!
