Book 3 of the Peloponnese series Following on from the first two acclaimed books (Things Can Only Get Feta and Homer's Where The Heart Is), Marjory, Jim and their crazy dog Wallace are on a second odyssey in the southern Peloponnese but this time they end up in a peninsula they didn't choose, and a house they never thought they'd live in. How did this happen? Easy, this is Greece and nothing ever goes to plan. The couple's latest adventure in Koroni, on the Messinian peninsula, takes them on another perilous and funny journey, with house rental dramas, scorpion threats, the challenge of Greek language classes, and an unexpected publishing battle. But when they finally fall for the charm of unspoilt Koroni, make new friends and connect with some of the memorable characters from their Mani days, they discover once more just how Greek is their love. And there's not even a sting in the tale. Well ... almost! REVIEWS: "This book is rare within the travel writing genre. It cleverly combines a travel narrative with enlightened observations about Greece, while retaining a light and entertaining touch throughout." - Peter Kerr, best-selling author of Snowball Oranges
