Overview

In this romantic romp through the Greek Isles, Carol Grace pens the delightful story of maid of honor and groom-to-be hot on the trail of a runaway bride...and quite possibly falling in love!

Jane Atwood has loved Alex Woods for years. His upcoming wedding to her best friend — the Greek- American beauty Sofia Leonakis — doesn't make it any easier. Nor does the Greek island setting (is there a more romantic place on earth?) or her status as maid of honor. But when Sofia and Alex have a huge fight five nights before the wedding, Sofia runs off with a mystery man and all bets are off.

Thrown together in search of the errant bride, Jane and Alex go island-hopping. Jane tries hard to keep the "honor" in maid of honor, but her attraction to Alex deepens like a Mediterranean tan. Soon, Alex sees that she's not the plain Jane he thought she was — and that she may be his one true love. Only on the wedding day will Jane discover whether Alex is ready to say "I do" — and to whom!

A Bon Voyage romance!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When Sophia Leonakis disappears after a fight with her intended just days before her wedding on the island of Mios, her best friend and maid of honor, Jane Atwood, and the would-be groom, Alex Woods, set off to find her. But as they search for the missing Sophia-and the man she was supposed to have run off with-Jane and Alex fall under the romantic spell of the Greek isles and become something more than friends. Exceptionally vivid descriptions; likable, well-developed characters; simmering sexual tension; and Sophia's large, warm, extended family enhance this funny, emotionally charged romp through one of the most beautiful parts of the world. Light and lively, this is a perfect vacation read. Grace is a seasoned writer of contemporary romances (That's Amore) and lives in Woodside, CA. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

CPA Jane Atwood has loved Alex Woods since they first met as lab partners at college about ten years ago. However, Alex fell in love her roommate Sofia Leonakis. Now Alex and Sofia are marrying on the Greek isle of Mios near where her wealthy family lives. However, Alex and Sofia get into a fight over his desire to quit her father¿s company.......................... The next day, Alex and Jane learn that Sofia has run off apparently with a local fisherman. They follow the only clue, a matchbook from Cavo d¿Oro on the isle Andros. As they search a nude beach and remain in close proximity, Alex falls in love with Jane. Now he needs to gracefully end his relationship with Sofia and persuade Jane that she is not plain to him....................... This Aegean Sea romance is a fun tale starring a delightful lead pair, who does not realize that they are an ideal couple. The story line is character driven from the manipulative theatrics of Sofia to Jane¿s clumsiness when her beloved is near to Alex realizing who turns him on while strolling on a nudist beach (wonder why he was brain dead before that naked walk). With a vast Greek family to round out the nuptials, fans will appreciate this warm contemporary tale.................................. Harriet Klausner
