Review: Those Summer Nights

Those Summer Nights by Mandy Baggot

Genres/Themes: Summer, Life Changes, Romance, Chick Lit

★★★★☆

*I received this book through netgalley in exchange for a honest and fair review*

This was a cute, quirky read. Also, very easy and nice to read.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Imogen Charlton is sorted. Dead-beat husband? History. Dream job? Application sent. But then her impulsive brother, Harry, spends every last penny on a Greek restaurant in Corfu, and is determined to run it himself. It’s up to Imogen to bring him to his senses.

When sexy millionaire Panos Dimitriou offers to buy back his family taverna, Imogen wonders if all her prayers have been answered (and all her fantasies about to come true). But Harry won’t budge, and his enthusiasm is infectious.

Bright pink bougainvillea tumbling over whitewashed walls, endless blue skies, the sparkling Mediterranean; it’s hard not to fall for Corfu. And that’s not all Imogen is falling for…


Imogen Carlton is very relate-able and a great main character. She is level-headed, caring, and loves her family so, it is nice to read about her stories.
The other characters were all interesting and helpful to the story making it enjoyable.

The plot is sweet and very appropriate for the summer. The whole time I was reading it I was wishing I was lounging on the beach or by the pool.

The romance is okay. I wasn’t totally convinced by it nor why they liked each other. In fact, I’m still not a huge fan of Panos (love interest) but, I can see the appeal.

Recommend? Yeah, thought it was a wonderful summer read.
