-International best-selling novelist and author of The Sweetness of Forgetting, Kristin Harmel

“I had the privilege of an early peek and was captivated by the beautiful – yet not simplistic – descriptions of Greece. This book is set to be a big hit.”

-Author of Saving Saffron Sweeting and quarter-finalist for Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Award, Pauline Wiles

 “When was the last time you searched for a new book only to find yourself drawn into it so quickly that you could not put the book down?… Somehow I have a feeling this will become a classic traveler story.”

– Mark McGuire, The Affordable Entrepreneur  

Chasing Athens is a fantastic story of heartbreak, self-discovery and finding love again. I really loved how Marissa depicted Athens so that it came alive for the reader.”

– Kim Golden, Award-winning women’s fiction novelist, author of Maybe Baby

“I’d definitely recommend it to those who are feeling a little wanderlust, or want to travel vicariously around Athens. ”

-Annabel Krantz, Annabel and Alice Chick-Lit Reviews  

“The character, Ava, had me laughing in the opening chapter. Her encounter over not getting her ticket validated sounds like something I would do in one of my rush about madly moments. To be hauled off to the police station in a foreign country only adds to Ava’s misery, but the way Miss Tejada describes the situation I could only laugh. A book that combines humor with the pain of self-growth.”

-Acclaimed romance novelist, Lizzie T. Leaf
