My Thoughts 

Ah, I often love an escapist read and the synopsis - please! 

*The setting in Greece is appealing 

*Marriage of convenience 

*Slooooow burn 

But …

*A bit “huh” and, imo, implausible in places, 

*Couldn’t connect with the MFC 


I wasn’t the right reader for this. 

Thank you to SOURCEBOOKS Landmark and NetGalley for the DRC


It's all fun and games until you accidentally marry a stranger in Greece and inherit a hotel.

Amelia Lang's life is kind of a mess. She's stuck living at home with her narcissistic mother. Her tech bro ex-boyfriend deliberately sabotages her at work, and she gets fired after throwing a mug at his head (it's okay! She missed.) Then she has a major falling out with her best friend. So Amelia does what Amelia does best: She runs away.

After traveling around Europe for three months, she settles on a small Greek island to reset her life and figure out what's next. But after too much retsina, she gets tricked into marrying James, another guest at the hotel, who is perfectly nice―but perfectly boring. To top it off, they are gifted the very hotel they're staying in―a hotel they don't want that is in desperate need of some TLC. They agree to keep the hotel open through the busy summer season for the sake of the island's quirky but well-meaning residents, after which Amelia plans to return home to start rebuilding her disastrous life.

Amelia and James must work together to determine how to get out of their situation―easier said than done for Amelia, who's started to feel a strong spark of attraction for James. But Amelia is sure her real life is waiting for her back in San Francisco. Is it time for Amelia to return home or could this be the second chance at a new life she didn't know she wanted?
