Blog Tour: Truly Madly Greekly - Mandy Baggot + Giveaway!

Get your summer off to a steamy start with Mandy Baggot and her sizzling new read, Truly Madly Greekly.

We've got an all inclusive tour chock-a-block with reviews, guest posts and a giveaway, as the book scorches a trail across a variety of blogs!

What they say: Sun, sea and a sexy stranger - a whole lot of fun just got a lot more complicated. Capable, confident and career-driven, Ellen had her dream job and a marriage proposal from boyfriend Ross. Life was good, her future set. Until it wasn’t and everything fell apart… Whisked off to the beautiful island of Corfu to plan her sister Lacey’s big, fat, Greek wedding, Ellen is hoping some time out will help clear her head and heal her heart. But letting go of her past is not going to be easy. With Lacey in full on Bridezilla mode, Ellen is soon distracted from her own problems. And when the all-inclusive treats on offer at hotel Blue Vue include one gorgeous, brooding Adonis – Yan – Ellen finds him difficult to resist. But Ellen isn’t looking for love or lust, or anything involving too much ouzo…or is she? Fans of Lucy Diamond, Miranda Dickinson and Lindsey Kelk will want to escape to Corfu with Mandy Baggot this summer.   

It’s all about that base... Welcome to the Blue Vue Hotel!
Every book has a character that isn’t living and breathing but is completely essential to the plot. For Truly, Madly Greekly this is the village of Agios Spyridon and the fictional Blue Vue Hotel in Corfu. However, being a twice yearly visitor to the gorgeous Mareblue Beach Hotel, Corfu, I couldn’t help but draw some inspiration from this wonderful establishment to create my hotel in the book.

The Blue Vue shares the gorgeous lagoon pool, the delicious Greek cuisine, the animation games and shows but most importantly a stunning view that always takes my breath away every time I visit. 


 It was so good to be able to create parts of this book while I was at the Mareblue Beach. I lay on my lounger, just like my characters Ellen and Lacey, writing their antics in between cocktails and cheese pies, hopefully passing on the Greek setting to you readers. It’s hard work but someone has to do it! So dip your toes into Greek waters this summer and indulge in some ouzo – sizzling summer reading awaits!
