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…

Angie’s Thoughts:

Moti on the Water is a laugh out loud, while crying, mess of a book. Not a bad mess but an organized one and one that I loved picking through.

Moti is far from perfect. She’s a mess really. From her clumsiness to stealing things. She was perfectly flawed. A character that some will relate to. A character I laughed with and cried with and laughed some more.

I couldn’t wait to get to the next page to read her most inner thoughts. She was pleasantly unexpected in her words. She was weak at first but then she flourished like a beautiful butterfly taking its first flight. She became a strong beautiful woman who wouldn’t let others words get to her. She was a Phoenix being reborn.

Alex was someone else I loved reading about and I was pleasantly surprised to know we had some chapters from his POV. I loved how he loved her. Stood up for her and even went against everything she had asked for. For showing her that she didn’t need to live someone else’s life but hers alone. For showing her happiness around every corner. For loving her for her.

I have to say that the side characters really made this book so much more. I felt like I was a part of their family. I laughed and loved and cried. The wooden spoon incident will stay with me forever. I love cooking and use mine quite a bit. I’ll never be able to look at it the same again. :^D

Moti on the Water is a new book. A tale of loss, love, friendship, family and finding your true self. I recommend this book to everyone. From first time readers of Leylah’s to obsessed fans. I wouldn’t pass this book up.
