Title: Love & Olives
Author: Jenna Evans Welch
Expected Publication Date: July 7, 2020

A tale about a teen girl finding romance while trying to connect with her absent father in Santorini, Greece.

Evie Varanakis doesn’t have a lot of fond memories of her father, which makes sense—he fled to Greece when she was only eight. What Evie does remember, though, is their shared love for Greek myths and the lost city of Atlantis. So when Evie suddenly receives a postcard from her father explaining that National Geographic is funding a documentary about his theories on Atlantis—and will she fly out to Greece and help?—Evie jumps at the opportunity.

But when she arrives to Santorini, things are a little…awkward. There are so many questions, so many emotions that flood to the surface after seeing her father for the first time in years. And yet Evie doesn’t want their past to get in the way of a possible reconciliation. She also definitely doesn’t want Theo—her father’s charismatic so-called “protégé”—to witness her struggle.

And that means diving into all that Santorini has to offer—the beautiful sunsets, the turquoise water, the hidden caves, and the delicious cuisine. But not everything on the Greek island is as perfect as it seems. Because as Evie slowly begins to discover, her father may not have invited her to Greece for Atlantis, but for something much more important.
