The Bed and Breakfast on the Beach by Kat French

"A Greek island solves all life’s problems…doesn’t it?
Winnie, Stella and Frankie have been best friends forever.

When their lives unexpectedly unravel, they spontaneously decide to buy a gorgeous B&B on a remote Greek island. Drenched in hot sun, Villa Valentina is the perfect escape from reality. But when Winnie meets Jesse, their brooding neighbour, she finds that Greece is full of its own complications – not least how attractive he is…

Meanwhile, Frankie and Stella are discovering that Villa Valentina has its own secrets – starting with the large supply of gin in the cellar and the arrival of a famous rock band. A band with one very good-looking member who just might distract Frankie from thoughts of her husband…"
This book isn't just one big fairytale, it's three combined into one!  In The Bed and Breakfast on the Beach, Winnie, Stella and Frankie each go on their own journey (after they decide to buy a B&B on a remote Greek island whilst on a long weekend away from their difficult lives in England) and what ensures is absolutely delightful.
I loved that the story wasn't as expected, for example, there isn't that much B&B'ing that goes on but rather a local gin-making tradition and interactions with the islanders.
Reading the acknowledgements, I loved to read that the character of Jesse was inspired by Hooten from Hooten and the Lady.  Having just recently watched the series; I can totally see this!
An absolutely perfect summer holiday read (or summer lockdown read!).  A story of sunshine, love, new starts and bravery!

I received a free copy of this e-book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The Bed and Breakfast on the Beach is out now and can be purchased here on Kindle or in Paperback (prices correct at time of writing):
