Change of Pace
Have you ever thought you were having a rough week? I bet Anna would trade places with you. She gets dumped, loses her job, and turns thirty all in the span of a week. The best part, she goes completely out of character and hops a plane to Greece with absolutely no plans. She starts getting cold feet while on the plane because she did not even book a room. Alex, the man sitting beside her just happens to be headed to Greece and offers to show her a place to stay. Anna soon learns her life will be changed forever. Love and happiness come in the most unlikely places.
This is a wonderful story of love, change, letting go, and taking a leap of faith. The story line flows smoothly throughout. It was a bit slow in the beginning, but picks up nicely and I was unable to put it down. Anna is a woman who lives a tediously boring life until her world is turned upside down in the span of a week. She has some difficulty adjusting when she first goes to Greece because life is not as structured and same as it had been. Alex comes along and life is never the same. He has always jumped from one woman to the next until Anna comes into his life. There is one problem, he has a habit of disappearing for days on end. Anna is not sure if she can deal with this or not; but she doesn't want to lose him. Along comes Anna's mom from the U.S., Mrs. Perfect and critical. She has changed, however, and maybe they can have the relationship they never had. If you like a good romance with just a bit of mystery, this is a good choice for you. I highly recommend it.
