Genre: Contemporary Romance; Single Dad
Release date: March 24th

The only love Kally Anadarakis is baking is in the form of the sweet treats she whips up in her café, The Coffee Klatch.

Kally never believed herself to be a person worthy of love, but when an intoxicating man she considered out of her league pursues her, she risks everything to be with him. Later, when tragedy strikes, truths are revealed that leave Kally brokenhearted and untrusting.

Eight years later, Kally is a successful pastry chef running the café she’d always dreamed of owning. With a home of her own, a profession she’s passionate about, and the support and love of friends and family, Kally is content with the life she has carved out for herself.

Until the day Max Vardaxis walks into her café…

With arguing parents, meddling relatives, an overly energetic grandmother, a man-crazy best friend, and the long ago, mysterious disappearance of a grandfather, this new man in town is just one more complication in Kally’s life, if not the main one.

Kally must now decide whether to keep her heart safe or to once again take a ‘whisk on love.’

Effie Kammenou is a believer that it is never too late to chase your dreams, follow your heart or change your career. She is proof of that. At one time, long ago, she’d thought that, by her age, she would have had an Oscar in her hand after a successful career as an actor. Instead, she worked in the optical field for 40 years and is the proud mother of two accomplished young women.

Her debut novel, Evanthia’s Gift, is a women’s fiction multigenerational love story and family saga, influenced by her Greek heritage, and the many real-life accounts that have been passed down. She continues to pick her father’s brain for stories of his family’s life in Lesvos, Greece, and their journey to America. Her interview with him was published in a nationally circulated magazine.

Evanthia’s Gift: Book One in The Gift Saga was a 2016 award finalist in the Readers Favorite Awards in the Women’s Fiction category. Waiting for Aegina is Book Two in The Gift Saga and Chasing Petalouthes is Kammenou’s latest release, completing the series.

Effie Kammenou is a first generation Greek-American who lives on Long Island with her husband and two daughters. When she’s not writing, or posting recipes on her food blog, cheffieskitchen.wordpress.com, you can find her entertaining family and friends or traveling for ‘research.’

As an avid cook and baker, a skill she learned from watching her Athenian mother, she incorporated traditional Greek family recipes throughout the books.

She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Theater Arts from Hofstra University.

My Review :: Evanthia’s Gift by Effie Kammenou

Evanthia's Gift (The Gift Saga #1)Evanthia’s Gift by Effie Kammenou
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Not related to Mamma Mia! 🙂

I had a good start to this beautifully narrated greek saga!

Anastacia and Alex’s story was very enjoyable. Interesting characters who survived the WWII time in Greece.

Anyone would relate to the family drama, translating to the next generation, their struggles and heartbreaks.
Second generation of the family was getting on my nerves, so I didn’t like it as much… but such is life.

When it moved to Sophia, their daughter, and her love, annoying dependence of Dean, who doesn’t deserve her. What a jerk… the book felt like two separated stories.

However, amazing accent for the first generation of characters, the narrator did a good job with the variety of voices from the multiple pov’s.

A long book, but nice and enjoyable!

My Review as I read the stories:

Paperback Writers AnthologyPaperback Writers Anthology by Jennifer Locklear
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reading

An original story from the 90’s inspired by music from the Beatles. Souls will keep helping each other even if they’re not in this world or the next.

Sweet characters captured my attention since the first page. We can feel the love in the writing. Although there were issues like in every ordinary family, I believe everyone was trying their best.

Beautifully written, something you must read.

On to the next story.
Leaving a review as long as I finish the next 😉
