Book Review-Deadly Secrets (The Greek Isles Series Book 2)-Angel Sefer

Wednesday, May 13, 2015


Try to imagine your entire life being disrupted at the age of eight--Helena's father disappeared never to be heard from or seen again. Her Mom takes her back to England and is never the same. Her Mom makes Helena promise she will never go back to Greece but won't tell her why. After her Mom passes away Helena decides she wants to see the only family she has left--so she goes to Greece. Someone is following her and she almost gets run over--then as she leaves the boat there is a suspicious looking man staring at her. She is picked up by Dimitris who she doesn't remember but who she feels an immediate attraction.

Meanwhile Helena is becoming more and more positive that her father's death was no accident--especially after finding her Grandmothers diary. Bur who would want her father dead? You are not going to guess this one too easily. Meanwhile it seems that Helena and Demitrius were promised to each other in marriage by their families--uh--this is the modern age isn't it--what happens will amaze you!

This is the second book I read in this series--they truly are enjoyable reads and the descriptions of the Greek Isles--well--you will feel like you are really there!


About the Book: (from Amazon)

A quest for truth…
Helena was only eight when her father disappeared, and her life was shattered. Thirteen years later, she returns to her birthplace—the Greek island of Mykonos—on a quest to learn the truth about her father. Eerie warnings from her late mother and prophecies hidden in her grandmother’s diary compel Helena to delve into her family’s mysterious past. But well-buried secrets and a hidden mastermind plotting revenge create a deadly combination that could destroy Helena’s life.

A powerful and seductive man…
Upon discovering that the seductive Captain Dimitris Nikolaou has taken everything once belonging to her father, Helena is devastated; but in spite of his treachery, she is drawn to him like no other. As danger and passion collide, Helena realizes that nothing is what it seems.

Keeping a promise can be fatal…
Despite her desire for the irresistible captain, Helena is wary of his insistence to keep the promise he’d made to her father—the promise to marry her. Dimitris wants this feisty enchantress, and he’s used to getting what he wants. Making Helena his wife isn’t about the promise anymore—he wants her…and he’s willing to put his heart and his life at risk to keep her in his arms forever.

About the Author: (from Amazon)


Award-winning, bestselling author Angel Sefer was born in Athens, Greece, and 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 mystery romance novels, full of heart-racing action, suspense, twists and turns, and breathtaking romance.

Angel lives in Athens, Greece, with the two loves of her life--her son and her husband--and is a member of several writers groups.

The Greek islands--alluring destinations that cast a spell on the visitor from the very first moment--are among her favorite settings. She has written a whole series of standalone mystery romance novels--The Greek Isles Series--each taking place on a different island.

In this series, dark mysteries mingle with sizzling romances, while the reader enjoys the virtual experience of visiting some of the most enchanting Greek islands. The impeccable beauty of those islands--where nature exists lavishly in hundred shades of green and blue, and centuries of Greek tradition coexist harmoniously with cosmopolitan activity--will steal the reader's heart away.

Award-winning bestseller Spellbound in His Arms is the first novel published in The Greek Isles Series. In this suspenseful tale of murder, deceit, and political cover-up, sexy investigative reporter Jackie ignites the fury and stirs the passion of mysterious police detective Michael. The action unfolds on majestic Corfu in the dazzling aquamarine waters of the Ionian Sea.

Bestseller Deadly Secrets is the second novel published in The Greek Isles Series. Stunning Helena and seductive Captain Dimitris confront each other--and make sparks--in this suspenseful tale of murder, deceit, embezzlement, and treachery. The action unfolds on picturesque Mykonos--one of the most beautiful islands in the sparkling sapphire waters of the Aegean Sea--and is supported by a steamy story of forbidden love.

The Heiress of Santorini is the third novel published in The Greek Isles Series. The startling truth about her billionaire client drives breathtaking insurance manager Alexandra over the edge but cannot quell her desire for sinfully handsome and off-limits Mark. This tale of non-stop action, suspense, deceit, and murder unfolds in Atlanta, New York, and on the awe-inspiring island of Santorini--a precious gem in the Aegean Sea that is still an active volcano with spectacular rock formations, impressive lunar landscapes, and breathtaking red and black sand beaches.

Dark Shadows of The Past is the fourth novel in The Greek Isles Series. Dazzling Christina is caught in a deadly game of conspiracy, murder, treachery, and vengeance while desperately trying to conceal her real identity. Seductively handsome police detective Dan puts his job and life on the line to protect this feisty enchantress from the threat hovering over her. The non-stop action and steamy romance unfolds in Atlanta, the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Georgia, and the island of Cephalonia--the fascinating setting of "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" in the amazing aquamarine waters of the Ionian Sea. Dark Shadows of The Past will be available Winter 2015.
