Apokeri Bay: How far would you go for love?

Jackie Watson

Escape to Greece with an irresistible page-turner about love, friendship and heart-wrenching decisions that will keep you guessing to the very end.

Five days tucked away on a Greek island. Time enough for Anna Jenkinson to determine her future. And then return home.

But when this feisty young woman unexpectedly falls in love with the quaint seaside village of Apokeri, she seizes the chance for a new life. Away from her friends, former lover and a critical father.

However, this beach lovers' paradise is not always what it seems. And Anna unwittingly becomes embroiled in a host of other people's plans - including a matchmaking café owner, a laid-back bike rental employee and a man desperate to escape island life.

Over a sun-drenched summer, Anna negotiates her way through a village full of colourful characters, hidden agendas, family sagas and destructive secrets. But, she inadvertently triggers a series of life-changing events for some residents. And brought face-to-face with her own questionable actions, Anna must answer the question - how far will she go to protect her new love?

Apokeri Bay is thought-provoking and uplifting fiction. It is one of the debut novels for 2023 and the first part in a trilogy. If you love women's contemporary fiction, grab your copy now and be transported to Anna's world in beautiful Lefkada.

About the Author

Watson, Jackie: - "Jackie Watson is from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK and an outdoor enthusiast. Living close to the banks of the River Tyne she is often found striding in the countryside with her partner and their extremely cute and characterful Miniature Schnauzer, pottering in their allotment, running or occasionally cycling. There have been many travelling adventures to far-flung or closer to home destinations, including her own escape to Greece. After twenty years in marketing Jackie took a leap of faith and embarked on a new life as a women's contemporary fiction author. However, writing is not a new love, but an ongoing passion. And the Apokeri Bay trilogy was born from a recurring dream of a feisty female protagonist who unexpectedly falls in love with a quaint seaside village on the Greek island of Lefkada. In her uplifting and thought-provoking writing Jackie weaves in what we all love about great fiction - the chance to step into the world of somebody else and share in their story. But she certainly doesn't give her characters an easy island life. They must overcome family saga, dark secrets, guilt and betrayal to discover life-changing friendships, hope, joy and learn how to embrace and overcome everything life and love can throws at them.
