Summary

Jo Thomas's irresistible novel transports you straight to the mountains of Crete. A gorgeous, sun-filled new read from the author of The Oyster Catcher, The Olive Branch, and Late Summer in the Vineyard.

We never forget the one who got away.

Eighteen years ago Nell fell in love in the mountains of Crete and life changed forever. Nell's daughter, Demi, has never met her dad. Nell never saw him again.

When she gets the chance to return to the hilltop town of Vounoplagia - where everything began - Nell can't resist the urge to go back and find him.

Working on a honey farm perched high up in the hills, there's plenty to keep her busy. And she will quickly realise the town harbours just as many secrets as she does.

But if Nell's favourite romantic films are right, there's a happy ending in store for each of us. All she has to do is seek out the magic of the mountains....

Jo Thomas takes you there.

A lovely Grecian Idyll

Jo Thomas does it again, brilliant narration, twisty turny storyline, very atmospheric. When is the next one out? I can't wait!

Good story

I liked the story,
As I listen at night when I can’t sleep I found the volume difficult, i found it was either too loud or if I had it lower I couldn’t hear the whisper, it was a bit frustrating and not relaxing, otherwise loved the story.

The Honey Farm on the Hill

Really enjoyed this romantic, colourful tale. I could almost feel the heat of the sun, smell the aroma of the herbs and hear sheep! A happy ending too.

Saved by the location!

I bought this because of the Cretan location. Thanks to Covid a book set in Greece is the nearest I can get just now!
I enjoyed ‘revisiting’ Crete in my imagination and the descriptions of the Greek dishes made me hungry!
The story was ok, a bit obvious but nice enough. I wish the main character hadn’t spoiled it by being so annoying though, she was very ‘whiny’ and came across as self-pitying ‘oh woe, it’s all my fault’ -ish, and well, just irritating!
Shame, as the other characters were quite endearing

I just want to go there

I really enjoyed this feel good vibe book.
Honestly Jo Thomas should get some sort of deal with the travel agencies as you always end up wanting to visit these places.
Great narration.

Loved it!

Super book, I learned a great deal about Crete, its customs and honey making.
The characters leapt into your mind making visualising them easy.

not bad

This book was ok but very predictable and a bit over dramatic in parts so made me cringe a few times. I missed out on the last half of the last chapter as I couldn't take the cringe anymore.
