Marmaris memories

I holiday in Marmaris every year and by the end of the second week I lie on my lounger google searching jobs there.
I enjoyed reading this book for the Marmaris mentions and the perspective of someone who lives there all year round... I look forward to reading Lei’s second diary before returning to Marmaris at the end of the month.
Just one small moan, as a teacher I found the typos and spelling mistakes hard to ignore.

Not normally the type of book that I would read. However, I know the author and had a great season in Cyprus working with her as a holiday rep a few years ago. Therefore I gave it a go.
It was amusing and I enjoyed it. A bit Bridget Jones does Turkey but none the worse for that. Louise may say it is not autobiographical but it comes close at times.
A good first novel, it would make an entertaining rom com.
