A story of icing and flour…and how love doesn’t always go to plan!
Growing up, Pippa Pattinson’s summers were spent in the idyllic Greek island fishing village of Taxos. There she spent many long hazy days determinedly ignoring thoughts of the life her parents had mapped out for her (a dreary-but-secure accounting job and obligatory sensible husband!) Instead she daydreamed of running her own tea shop – serving the perfect scones – with mocha-eyed childhood friend Niklaus by her side…
Arriving back in Taxos for the first time in years, with suave boyfriend Henrik, Pippa barely recognises the tired little town – but is relieved to catch glimpses of the quaint, charming village she’s always loved. Together Niklaus and Pippa put together a proposal to save Taxos from tourist-tastic ruin, and at the heart of their plan is Pippa’s dream project: The Tastiest Little Tea Shop in Taxos. It’s time for Pippa to leave her London life behind and dust off her scone recipe that’s guaranteed to win over both locals and visitors. And amidst the rolling pins and raisins, it seems romance is blossoming where she’s least expecting it…
I WANT TO BE IN TAXOS. I could almost taste the Souvlaki, hear the music and feel the sun on my cheeks in this charming novel written by the lovely Samantha Tonge.
Pippa has a dilemma. Off she goes to to Taxos with her lover, Dutch beefcake Henrick, hoping to make a decision about her life and her love. She helps to save the residents, their town and maybe herself.
Game of Scones is the perfect accompaniment to the sun and a glass of retsina , a brilliant summer read that transports you to somewhere beautiful and to people you will fall in love with.
I wanted to dance like Zorba when I finished and Oh those scones. yummy
