Review: Sweet Baklava - Debby Mayne - March 2011
Wanting a novel that has romance and greek food and lots of celebrating ? Sweet Baklava takes us into the heart of Greek Community in Tarpon Springs , Florida. They are all preparing in celebration for the return of Nick Papadopoulos - who has spent the past two years in the Air Force . After graduating college, he ran to the airforce leaving behind Paula who was smitten for him. Now Two years later , Paula owns a successful soap and candle business and nearing Christmas things in the shop are looking up and that's going to be the excuse she uses throughout the novel to stop her from getting reunited with Nick. However the Papadopoulous family have other ideas up their sleeves as they plan ways to rekindle and matchmake Paula and Nick together. Will they succeed in bringing the pair together as it proves time and time throughout the novel that without each other -to be corny "their lives are incomplete".
A very light-hearted chick lit novel that in ways brings to light the thought that thank goodness you are not greek , as their matchmaking skills includes the whole clan chipping in.
