“Happy is the man, I thought, who, before dying, has the good fortune to sail the Aegean sea.”

Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

Currently, Greece is best known for its economic problems. That’s a great pity. Greece is a stunningly beautiful country which has provided the basis for the fairest system of government we have evolved so far. We don’t always implement it very well—the current U.S. political gridlock illustrates this—but even imperfect democracies are superior to the alternatives.

We owe Greece a great deal (and, frankly, we should treat it a great deal better). Go visit—you’ll love it. Great food and wine too. And yes, I do like retsina.

If the Greek mainland is impressive, the Greek islands raise the bar even higher. They are a series of gems—each island different, each its own very special world.

Author Angel Sefer has come up with the brilliant idea of writing a series of books set is the Greek islands. This is what is said on her LinkedIn site.

Angel Sefer was born in Athens, Greece. She has studied and worked on both sides of the Atlantic. She holds a degree in Economics and divides her time between the corporate world and her true passion: reading and writing romantic mystery & suspense novels. She lives in Athens, Greece, with the two loves of her life — her son and her husband. Angel is a member of several writers groups.

"This book LITERALLY sucked me in with the very first paragraph. I had a very hard time putting this book down because it is so action packed!" - Joe Cool Review
"I would summarize 'Spellbound in His Arms' in one word: exciting! This was a fun easy read that had it all; romance, excitement and mystery with Corfu for the backdrop of the story." - The Masquerade Crew

Her award-winning, romantic mystery & suspense, #1 bestseller, “Spellbound in His Arms” — published by Booktrope — is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. It’s the first novel in “The Greek Isles Series”, taking place on the alluring island of Corfu.
“The Greek Isles Series” is a series of six novels, each taking place on a different island. In this series, while sharing with the readers the development of the romance and the unfolding of the mystery, Angel also takes the opportunity to share with them the unbelievable experience of visiting some of the most enchanting Greek islands. These islands are places of impeccable beauty, where nature exists lavishly in hundreds of shades of green and blue, and in which centuries of Greek tradition coexist harmoniously with cosmopolitan activity.

“Deadly Secrets” — the second novel in this series — blends mystery, romance, and adventure on Mykonos, one of the most beautiful islands in the Aegean Sea. The picturesque setting on one hand and the unique way of life on a Greek island, which reflects the values and traditions of the people, on the other, set the background for this intriguing story.

“Deadly Secrets” will be published soon by Booktrope.
