Spotlight and review...The Heiress of Santorini by: Angel Sefer #Giveaway


























Synopsis:
An unexpected threat...
When insurance manager Alexandra Stewart is assigned to the Imperial Resorts Corporation account and has to travel to the island of Santorini, she's worried about keeping the promise she made to her late father. Alexandra swore to keep her real identity a secret and to stay away from her maternal grandfather, a Greek billionaire who lives on the island. However, what Alexandra thought was fate is actually a plot to bring her home.

An undeniable attraction...
The new assignment embeds Alexandra in a deadly game of vengeance and greed that threatens to destroy her grandfather’s empire. The only one she can turn to for help is Mark Taylor, the seductively handsome Managing Director of the Corporation. Mark is torn between his intense attraction to Alexandra and his promise to her grandfather to guard the secret that could destroy the entire Vassiliou family. His puzzling behavior infuriates Alexandra, but it can’t quell her desire.

A startling revelation...
Will Alexandra be able to trust Mark when he has already lied to her once? Will Mark be able to convince Alexandra he’s not the enemy? And when the time comes, will he be able to confess the truth to her?


My Review: 
4 stars!  Review copy provided.

I really enjoyed this book. It had me guessing until the end. I thought the writing was well done and the story intrigued me. Mark, was he a good guy? Who was her grandfather really?  And who is behind John's mysterious disappearance? Every time I thought I got it right I was wrong and I really like when a book keeps me guessing. 

Being a romance junkie something was slightly missing for me. I felt the initial connection between Mark and Alexandra but it seemed to fade into the background with everything else going on. When I read a romance novel I like the build up of the H and h as the book goes on and to me it just leveled off. I found Alexandra and Mark to have good chemistry so I think with a little more about them, how they connected and why they connected the way they did would have helped me. Don't get me wrong it's there but just not as pronounced as I would have liked.
  
It was also nice getting into everyone's head a little in the book. I love books told from a first persons POV but the way this was written was unique because it was told in the third person but you also get a peak into what they were thinking. 

Reading about Greece and the description of the island was very well done, but not over done, I could definitely picture myself there. The description in the book in general was terrific and not over the top. This book takes you from Georgia, to New York and Greece...making me feel like I was right there with the characters.

All in all a great book with a lot of suspense and mystery that I would recommend reading.
