Sweet Baklava

By Debby Mayne


The product of a split home, Paula Andrews is conflicted about the only guy she’s ever loved, Nick Papadopoulos, who is coming home on leave from the military. Years earlier, Nick grew impatient and abandoned his family’s sponge diving and restaurant businesses in the Greek community of Tarpon Springs, Florida. When the two of them see each other after years of being separated, the awkwardness is replaced by pounding hearts and memories sweeter than the baklava in Nick’s aunt’s bakery.

Paula experiences all sorts of emotional tugs—from Nick going back to his base in Texas to her mother coming to her for emotional support. Nick’s cousins are relentless in their scheming to keep the flame burning between Nick and Paula. Years later, and after their lives that have grown apart, is it possible for these two people to rekindle what they once had?

Book Takeaway:

God can and will take bro-kenness and replace it with a sense of peace, love, family, commitment, and hope.

Why the author wrote this book:

Tarpon Springs, Florida, is one of the most unique and intriguing towns I've ever been to. The strong Greek influence, the climate, and the festivals draw tens of thousands of people each year.


"This was a fun book to read. It had a lot of great characters and I enjoyed getting to know them. I liked watching Paula overcome her struggles to and be able to love Nick without the previous reserva"
