Review: Moti on the Water by Leylah Attar

Title: Moti on the Water

Author: Leylah Attar

A Greek family. An Indian family. A summer wedding on the Aegean coast…

Meet Moti Ferreira—spectacularly jinxed from the day she’s born.

Saddled with an eccentric mother, she stumbles upon the one man who holds the key to her freedom—the best man at her cousin’s upcoming wedding.

All Moti has to do is overcome her fear of water, board a yacht to the Greek Isles, seduce the dreamy Nikos Manolas, and survive two weeks at sea with her oddball family.

The only obstacle Moti doesn’t see coming is Alexandros Veronis, the onboard chef and star witness to her awkward mishaps. He transforms onions into chocolate and aroma into nostalgia. Day by day, his alchemy works its magic on Moti. But she’s not the only one falling under his spell. Everyone has a secret, growing round and ripe at Chef Alex’s table. When the masks fall off, they spill out one by one, and everything blows up in their faces.

Now Moti’s truth is exposed, and worse, she’s hooked on more than Alex’s midnight snacks. But this time, screwing up could be the best thing she’s ever done…

Omg. Funny. Hilarious. Laugh out loud. I actually had tears rolling down my face at points.

Moti is a walking disaster. And I say that with all the kindness in the world. If it’s going to happen, it will happen to her!

A prophesy told when Moti was born (just like Harry Potter!) and she is waiting for the man in said prophesy to appear but I’m rather on her Nan’s side ‘Your turn will come too. And when it does, don’t listen to anything but your heart.’

And let me tell you the Nan would’ve been my firm friend. The realist, most down to earth person in Moti’s family.

Who is it to be, Three-Thumbed Nikos or Chef Alex?

The revelations at the end. I thought this book was funny but the truths shared were just so good!

This story was just beautiful. Finding love at it’s finest.
