All about buying property in the islands of Greece

Is the time right to invest in Greece real estate? This is the question on the minds of people who are interested in buying property in Greece. The Greek island property for sale prices are at rock bottom right now and have the potential for giving excellent returns in the medium term. Greece has 6ooo islands which are clustered into seven groups.

 

Of these, the smaller island properties are priced higher than the properties on the larger island. The development work on the island of Crete is pushing up the prices slowly there. Due to Government easing of rules and offering residential visas for investing more than $250,000 has resulted in growing demand for property for sale Greek islands.

 

Investors from the UK had invested earlier before the economy of Greece went bad. Many of these properties are up for sale for a fraction of the price that was sold for due to overdue payments on the mortgages. The Turkish investors have shown a keen interest in buying which is a good sign for appreciation of property value.

 

This may just be the right time to invest in Greek homes for sale as the prices are probably at the lowest and can move only upwards from hereon. Due to the low prices, the tourists have been coming in larger numbers in recent times which is also a good sign for real estate appreciation. Investing in Greek holiday homes at this low rates is a smart move. Owning a holiday home in Greece is a dream of many people.

Stygian by Santino Hassell
Stygian - Santino Hassell

I have a bit of a problem with the characters. Maybe a couple.

I hate to say it, but Jeremy comes off as self-centered and whiny. I am not blaming him, he had lived through too much loss and pain, I get it. Yet the fact remains.

Everyone's either relative(s) or a friend or a lover is dead or a drunk or a punk or a weirdo. Throw me one undamaged person. Please. Because this is like reading a book where everyone is gay, even pets. Weird.

And one more thing: I don't find it creepy or scary, just overly dramatic. I was skipping paragraphs and - never thought I ever would, while reading SH - pages. 

3.5 stars. Since I really liked Hunter and his evil mindf*cking ways, I am rounding this up to 4.

PS I had no problem with the ending whatsoever. It was clear where things were going, I thought it was perfect. Another reason I rounded up, not down. I do hope for a sequel, just to see if Q got over his "sickness".

Death Island
Death Island - Kelsey Ketch Death Island - Kelsey Ketch All her life Meriden Cummings has wanted to sail the high seas and live the life of adventure and be free like father and great-grandfather before her. Well at least this is a dream of hers that she hopes to put in motion one day but in the mean time she will have to settle for a life working with her mother as a Carpenter in their shop on their little island.

After their island is attacked by pirates, Meriden and her mother have to fight off some pirates that come into their home. Meriden and her mother don't come out of the fight unscathed no they have a few injuries but they are very strong and able fighters that give the pirates a run for their money. Meriden and her mother put a spin on the pirates that they never saw coming.

After the fight was over Meriden found a map of Death Island an island that holes a lot of clues to her family history. The map draws Meriden in and takes a hold on her that she can't shake. So what does she do? The only thing she can do and that is to make her dream come true. But she needs a few things first like money to back her expedition and a ship of course.

Meriden finds her ship with the help of her mother who contacts an old friend who is the captain of the Orion who has agreed to take Meriden on her adventure to Death Island but he informs her that he only has a skeleton crew and is in need of more men. Well Meriden is happy to oblige him in that department. She recruits her best friend since childhood Matthew Kettlesworths as the cook and another friend George Hobson as the ships doctor and last but not least her old friend Rupert Railing has agreed to back this little adventure and one perfect ginger haired rather handsome stranger Gregory "Greg" Wilson.

Once I picked up Death Island I couldn't put it down except to sleep literally. I grabbed my electric throw blanket curled up in my chair close by the heater on those cold days when the temp was in the twenty's and just kept flipping those pages. It drew me in right from the beginning and hasn't let go yet. Death Island has been an incredible epic journey through the awesome imagination of the author. Reading Death Island is really like seeing the world through the eyes of the author.

I would get so lost in reading Death Island that I could just see the characters sitting around the fire on a log with a blanket wrapped around them to help keep the chill away thinking about their day and what they saw in the dead forest. I could just see the looks of horror on each and every one of their faces as they listened to the sounds that the night made. Jumping and twitching with each and every cling, clang, whistle of a bird call or the snap of a twig how their eyes were so wide the whites showing with their eyes rolling around from one side to the other looking into the forest trying to find or hoping not to find the source of the sounds. No one wanting to talk about what they saw or about the nightmares they all was facing. I could see them sitting amongst the fog and it being so dark that they couldn't see much farther than the light of the fire.

I would so very much like to see Death Island on the big screen with Johnny Depp as the captain once again. I also think that Death Island would make a great tv show with it being set on the island itself with all the characters facing their nightmares.

I would highly recommend Death Island to anyone who likes the idea of sailing on the high seas and just loves a novel that will take them on the most incredible journey of a lifetime with pirates searching for lost treasure and then throw in a couple of gods and myths and maybe even take a walk through the land of the dead.

Wrapped Up in You
Wrapped Up In You (A Mystic Island Christmas) - Stephanie Rowe

Cole grew up in a close-knit coastal island community. His parents ran an inn. He had some things happen (that he blamed on his mom/the Inn) and left the community. Having done very well for himself, he comes back with the goal of selling the inn and leaving for good. 
Willow spend some summers on the island. She remembers being happy. There was one summer when she was 15 that she spent a night just talking (and got her first kiss) with one of the island boys (Cole). After she had a Bad Thing happen, she decides to escape her life for a week and spend Christmas on the island. 
What started as an insta-lust/love moment, Willow and Cole happen to be on the same ferry, turned into a nice story I enjoyed. That night, as teenagers, left a mark on both and each (eventually) remembers the other person. I didn't care for Cole when the story first started, but he grew on me. Willow got more comfortable in her own skin and realized she is just fine as she is.

Surprises around every corner, as well as the end
Temptation Island - Rachel Woods

This was an interesting read. Keeping up with the twists was not the problem, interpreting them was for me. I did not see the end coming. Quinn is confused by strong enough to carry on no matter what, and I loved that. Icarus was an enigma as to who he really was. Together, they made a good team with lots of sparks despite the danger. This kept me entertained, and I enjoyed every minute.

I received a copy of this story from Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.
