Mia Sanchez lives a simple life—she enjoys her work as a teacher, going to yoga, and spending evenings drinking tea on the porch with her boyfriend of ten years, Ryan. Then one day she comes home to find Ryan packing his things, and her perfectly organized life falls apart. In a desperate attempt to get Mia out of bed, her best friend Emily arranges for her to spend a week in Greece with her late grandmother’s sister, Elpida Katrakis. Mia’s never met Elpida, she’s never even been to Greece, but she knows she can’t spend the rest of her life under the covers. So armed with a travel journal, and a promise she made to Emily—to kiss the first Greek man she meets—Mia embarks on what she thinks will be a simple week of getting to know her grandmother’s elderly sister.
