When taking a break or staycation the chance to relax and get stuck into some holiday reads is one of our favourite things to do. The best spot to do this at Valleyside Escapes is on the veranda overlooking the picturesque Exe Valley. If you have children in tow, you can keep an eye on them in the play area while you get engrossed in a chapter or two.
Last year we welcomed leading author Kate Frost and her family to Valleyside Escapes. Kate has written a best-selling series of standalone Romantic Escape novels, character-driven women’s fiction and a time travel adventure trilogy. Her latest novel, One Greek Summer, will be launched on the 9th March and published by Boldwood.
Books and holidays are synonymous so we contacted Kate to see if she would like to partner with us for a #WorldBookDay promotion. Kate thought it was a great idea and is providing three of her romantic novels for the giveaway – The Baobab Beach Retreat, A Starlit Summer plus the latest and soon-to-be-released, One Greek Summer. They are uplifting, heart-warming stories of love, romance, hope, new beginnings and second chances featuring different characters in beautiful locations.
The Baobab Beach Retreat is set in Zanzibar – when Connie Stone leaves behind a cheating husband and heartache in the UK for her aunt’s beach retreat, the last thing she wants is for her life to once again be complicated by men. An ex-husband, two potential lovers, one reckless decision. Will Connie ever be happy in love?
A Starlit Summer is set in neighbouring Cornwall – A Hollywood star, a handsome surfer, a taste of fame. Will Jenna’s Cornish summer be one to remember?
One Greek Summer is set on the Island of Skopelos – When Harlow Sands arrives on an idyllic Greek island to work on a big budget movie, it should be the opportunity of a lifetime. But with a fractured family, a long-hidden secret and a need to belong, can her happy-ever-after be found during one Greek summer?
A great combination of romantic escape novels for this year’s holiday reads whether that is luxury glamping in beautiful Devon or a beach retreat in glorious Greece. To enter go to either our Facebook or Instagram page and follow the instructions. The competition closes at midnight Wednesday 9 March and the winner will be announced on our social media pages on Friday 11 March. Good luck and don’t forget to share with any book-loving friends or book clubs you belong to!
