    1. I have no intention of writing a real review, but I will say it has held up very well fifty years later. This was another one where I could clearly recall scenes. Not bad for a book that wasn't a classic or a famous bestseller.However the fascinating aspect of this book is the account of the Greek War of Independence from the Ottoman Empire. This small sliver of book covers 1826. I mean, really, other than the involvement and then death of Lord Byron who in the west even knows of this war? Yet t [...]


    2. This was an incredibly hard book to rate. I am in awe of the amount of research the author had to do to work up this book, and suspect it was more than difficult to wrap the war into a romance. That said, I found it hard to read. It was one of the books I had to put in the bathroom to get done, where I'm a captive audience. I normally don't like reading the conclusion early but I did this time because I really didn't know, couldn't guess, which man Phyllida would ultimately get. And I'm not goin [...]



    3. I'm not sure how someone can make a romance about an adventure in Greece during a time of turmoil and kidnapping so boring, but she sure did.


    4. Every single character's dialogue is completely interchangeable with every other character's dialogue. And everyone calls everyone "love." Gah.



    5. A tale that travels a different pathJane Aiken Hodge heads to a setting that doesn't figure often in romantic historicals -- the 1820s war that ultimately won Greece its independence from the Ottoman Empire. Greek Wedding opens with a volatile mix: Brett Renshaw, a brooding Englishman sailing an expensive yacht around the Mediterranean, and Phyllida Vannick, a spirited, resourceful American heiress who has landed in a tough spot while trying to locate her younger brother, who ran away to join th [...]


    6. This book deserves more like 3 1/2 stars. I really enjoyed the information about the war between Greece and Turkey, and learned a lot. I loved the main characters--the strong and spunky heroine, the gruff but good hearted hero. I was annoyed by the romantic "competition" since it was totally obvious to me he was up to no good, and same with a few of the other charactersybe it was the clumsy foreshadowing to blame. and the end kinda dragged on--I kept thinking, nothing else bad can happen to them [...]


    7. 3.5 starsThis is the first of her books I've read, so I'm not sure how typical it is. I come from the Mary Stewart romantic suspense angle, and that part certainly worked for me. I was very surprised by the incredible detail of the Greek-Turkish war, an era of which I was previously unaware (though now I understand a few references from completely different books).Not sure I'd read this one again - except maybe to reread the historical war part! - but I'll be looking out for other books by this [...]


    8. Historical fiction set in 1820s Greece. The spunky heroines are contrasts to the primness of Aunt Cassandra Knight, cousin of Jane Austen, and to the swashbuckling, rough-and-tumble Greek, Turk, Egyptian, and English men. Surprise, adventure, and romance prevail but some conversations between Phyllida Vannick and Brett Renshaw can stand improvement. The overall meld of place, plot, and characters is a feast for enjoyment. enpedia/wiki/Greek_Wa


    9. A historical novel with some romance. reads more like a history of the Greek Turkish warlots of events narrated in the background of an heiress trying to find her brother and falling in love with the wrong person and then the right person. It was interesting to red about this period in history but the story was okay.ither a romance nor a well written historical fiction


    10. Just re-read this for the first time in 40+ years. It wasn't one of my favorites at the time I first read it, and it isn't one now.Best thing about the book was the setting/time period--the Greek War for Independence from the Turks in the mid 1820s. There is a goodly amount of history woven into the story; the author does a good job of portraying the chaos.


    11. Exciting historical romance, set amongst the Greek and Turkish wars. Intrigue, drama and suspense, and strong believable characters. Enjoyable.


    12. A bold American heiress for heroine, a sarcastic unappreciative Englishman for the hero - what's not to love about this novel?
