About the Book:
Welcome to the Hummingbird Hotel!
When florist-to-the-stars Abbie Coleman catches a glimpse of her boyfriend through the window of Tiffany’s, she couldn’t be more excited. Keen to share her happiness, she organises a huge surprise party for all their family and friends… except things don’t quite work out as she expected, and instead of planning a flower-filled wedding, she finds herself single, and fired from a job she loves.
Desperate to escape her heartbreak, she jets off to her aunt’s quirky Hummingbird Hotel on the gorgeous island of Corfu. Little did she know that instead of spending her time lounging by the pool, drinking cocktails, and soaking up the sun, she’d be stepping into the role of the island’s newest hotelier.
The arrival of unexpected guests sends Abbie into a tailspin of panic, and she’s forced to turn to snippy, but charismatic, vineyard owner-turned-chef, Nikos Angelopoulos, for help. Why does the kitchen fill with smoke whenever she makes coffee? Why is there a naked man swimming in the pool? And why do the hotel’s toiletries turn their guests’ hair pink?
Despite all the chaos, the Hummingbird Hotel works its magic on Abbie, and she finds herself with a decision to make. Will she return home to the drizzly grey skies of London? Or will she take a leap of faith and embrace the new opportunities that little corner of paradise has to offer, and maybe, just maybe, discover a sprinkle of romance along the way?

About the Author:
Daisy James loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. She especially likes to create sunshine-filled settings in exotic locations – the Caribbean, Tuscany, Cornwall, Provence – so she can spend her time envisioning her characters enjoying the fabulous scenery and sampling the local food and drink.When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.
Daisy would love to hear from readers via her Facebook page or you can follow her on Twitter @daisyjamesbooks or on Instagram @booksdaisyjames.
I am no stranger to Daisy James’ novels and have loved each one that I have reviewed so far. Sunshine and Secrets (The Paradise Cookery School #1) Mistletoe and Mystery Summer at Villa Limoncello A Wedding at Villa Limoncello Confetti and Confusion.
In Escape to the Hummingbird Hotel, Abbie inherits her aunt’s quirky hotel in Corfu. She is all too ready to escape London after being cheated on and wants a new start. But can she do it?
She thinks Greece will be poolside relaxation, cocktails and sun but life has other plans for her. Will she get used to Greece? How will she like working at the hotel?
Then there’s vineyard owner-turned-chef, Nikos Angelopoulos to contend with…..
Will love and happiness be hers again? Will she stay or will it be back to London?
As always, Daisy James impresses me with her attention for detail and passion for writing romances set in paradise locations. She fleshes every character out well and paints a mean picture of a nemesis.
