A Greek family. An Indian family. A summer wedding on the Aegean coast....
Meet Moti Ferreira - spectacularly jinxed from the day she's born.
Saddled with an eccentric mother, she stumbles upon the one man who holds the key to her freedom - the best man at her cousin's upcoming wedding.
All Moti has to do is overcome her fear of water, board a yacht to the Greek Isles, seduce the dreamy Nikos Manolas, and survive two weeks at sea with her oddball family.
The only obstacle Moti doesn't see coming is Alexandros Veronis, the onboard chef and star witness to her awkward mishaps. He transforms onions into chocolate and aroma into nostalgia. Day by day, his alchemy works its magic on Moti. But she's not the only one falling under his spell. Everyone has a secret, growing round and ripe at Chef Alex's table. When the masks fall off, they spill out one by one, and everything blows up in their faces.
Now Moti's truth is exposed, and worse, she's hooked on more than Alex's midnight snacks. But this time, screwing up could be the best thing she's ever done....

Hilarious and entertaining
I really enjoyed this book, Leylah Attar has once again proved to have a good hand at writing character driven story. Overall writing style felt easy and was flowing nicely, therefore very enjoyable to listen to. The main character Moti's mishaps, self-deprecation and the humor with Siiri Scott's narration was on point!
Narration itself was a little slow for my taste, but once I sped it up to 1.4x it was so much better. I took one star off of the performance, because that one (or two?) chapters from Alex's perspective threw me off, and the narration by Alexander Candese, however a nice voice tone he has, was bad and sounded cheesy and even aggressive at some point. That part was a miss for me.
But overall, this story was an EXPERIENCE, and in an audio format it was very well done. Quirky, passionate, heartwarming, a little cheeky, but overall a great read. Totally recommend it!
