THE GOOD GREEK WIFE by author Kate Walker is a very tension filled yet sensitive reconcilation story.

The story started with the heroine, Penny, a widow and her late husband's family after her to sell the business. They want her to agree to a sellout as they said the business needed a man at the helm and not a woman. With this tension and conflict facing Penny, you start rooting for her immediately. And then when the whole family gathers for the board meeting in the morning to declare Zarek, Penn

This was based on the story of Penelope and Odysseus, at the end of Homer's Odyssey. Penny, the heroine, has been dealing with being left behind to keep her husband's business and estate going after he was kidnapped by pirates three years before, and presumably murdered. His step-family wants to have him declared dead and take over the business, she's been resisting. She's finally decided to let them begin the process, when he turns up again.

He thinks she's betrayed him, because she saw him hug

3.5 stars. I love reading Presents books, but I'm not blind to the faults inherent within. In this book, the misunderstandings were fairly reasonable, and involved a lot of lack of communication...so it wasn't too bad. And in general the main characters were enjoyable and fairly redeemable. Not a re-read, but not a regret...

So cliché and boring. Predictable and no real storyline. Blah blah blah and not worth reading

A modern romance based on the return of Odysseus following the Trojan War, this story had lots of promise but didn't really fulfil all my expectations. The trouble with a story like this, missing husband returns home, is that I expected drama - the potential for emotion and conflict to arise is great. This story takes the approach of having most of the conflict occur not in the relationship as such, but in whether or not the heroine is going to give in and have sex with the hero. Unfortunately, ...more

Des malentendus et des non-dits qui finissent par se régler à la toute fin, un livre qui se passe en très peu de temps (pas plus de 36 heures), ce qui donne pas mal de répétitions afin de remplir le nombre de pages

An interesting plot and a good story with a sexy intense Greek and an naive wife along with a greedy plotting family and a band of sea pirates make for a good story. A little slow paced and lacking some sexual tension but still a good read.

I wish i could give this zero stars. This was the worst and the Odyssey references only served to make me mad and sad.

I was born in Nottinghamshire, England, but I didn't live there for very long. The family moved to West Yorkshire when I was just eighteen months old and so I have always regarded Yorkshire as my home. I grew up there as the middle child in a family of five—all girls—in a home where books were vitally important and I read anything I could get my hands on.

Even before I could write I was making up s
