Happy New Year, folks. Today begins a new feature “Fiction Fridays”. Every other Friday this year I pledge to introduce a new and unique author that has crossed my path recently.
First up is Effrosyni Moschoudi who writes a fantasy romance series set around the Greek island of Corfu. I visited Corfu several times as a kid with my parents and fell in love with the island. So, I picked up this book and am excited to dive in for the memories alone.
So what’s it about? Here’s the blurb:
A terrible evil lurks in the mountain…
Lizzie is not your average tourist. She may have just arrived on the idyllic Greek island of Corfu, but her mind is not on having a good time. Far from it, Lizzie has a daunting task to undertake: to claim back her twin brother who was kidnapped twenty years earlier on her previous visit. In a cave. By an evil witch.
When Lizzie sees her brother again, she receives the shock of her life. The witch has tricked her… As if this weren’t enough, Stamatis, a handsome local, steals her heart to complicate her life even further…
Set in the enchanting village of Messonghi, this highly imaginative Greek fantasy romance will intrigue and uplift you, making it feel like you’re on the island of Corfu, experiencing it all with your senses. It is also guaranteed to leave you longing for a visit to your closest Greek restaurant!
The Raven Witch of Corfu is a compelling series of 4 kindle episodes. Purchase episode one for 99 cents on Kindle and let your most enthralling Greek holiday begin!
