    1 thought on “A Scorpion In The Lemon Tree: Mad adventures on a Greek peninsula”

    1. A thoroughly enjoyable read. This is the third book in the series about life in a Greek village in the southern Peloponnese and just as in the previous ones, I always learn something new. I particularly like the way the author gives us a glimpse into the way the villagers cope with the worsening economic crisis; their stoicism and philosophy in the face of ever-increasing obstacles born out of years of earlier hardships in Greece's modern history. She is observant and entertaining and her love f [...]

    2. So good !That's it. I have now read all three books. I must say I shall miss reading about all the various characters. I can only hope that there will be another book in due courseease.

    3. I enjoyed this book very much, and I knew I would, based on the two other Marjory McGinn books I’ve read. Her perception of Greece and its people is an interesting one. I love the way she dances around completely annoying behavior by dressing it in some sort of positivity. McGinn observes two tourists feeding the feral cats around a café after those tourists make a comment negating the Greek suffering during the current financial crisis: “What can you say about people who come to Greece but [...]

    4. No, don't go!I could read this series forever. I love Wallace. How are we to know what his latest antics are? Please Marjory, don't stop looking for a house in Greece. And, thank you for teaching me about Saint Theodora Monastery. Your books have brought humor, knowledge, good people, and the heart of Greece in this homebound life of mine. Thank you.

    5. Heartwarming travelogue The writing drew me in and I kept picking it up for just one more chapter. I enjoyed the blend of scenery, history, personalities and amusing anecdotes on the travails of learning Greek. I recommend these books to anyone traveling to Greece and wanting a sense of what life in the villages is like.

    6. I absolutely love all three books in this series. In this, the third installment, the author, her partner Jim, and lovable dog Wallace are in a new part of Greece with plenty of new places to explore and people to meet. Many favorite characters from the first two books, most notably the goat farmer Foteini, make an appearance as well.One common thread in these books that I feel is very important is the way they give a human perspective to the financial crisis in Greece. I have seen a few article [...]

    7. Another lovely read and highly recommended. But just realised that I have missed number two in this series. This is a both amusing and interesting tale of Greece.

    8. Third book in the series and I'm hoping this isn't the end ! Descriptions which transport you to a warmer place where the intensity of the sun and the economic climate create lovely and sometimes sad stories. Dappled with humour, history and Wallace the lovable Jack Russell, what is there not to like ! Go buy them all and get reading .

    9. Third Greek AdventureI have really enjoyed the three accounts of Marjory and Jim's living in Greece! The Greek Orthodox churches and the priests were very enlightening! I also enjoyed the Greek people!

    10. Very Real, and informativeI have enjoyed all 3 stories, so much. I have had the best time reading about foreigners lives in Greece. And, I've looked forward to each time I can resume reading. It is common knowledge of the economic crisis in Greece. The books bring a reality to this countries struggles and the courage Greeks have in living graciously through it all. Most of us have never heard of the long history of this place where people have likely originated from as a civilization. A long tim [...]

    11. The title of this book, as with others published by this author, is to my mind 'cheesey'. However, I enjoy reading about Greece so when I saw the Kindle version on offer, I purchased it. In view of the title, I did not expect too much and initially it did little but go through similar scenarios written by others who have either spent time living in Greece or who have chosen to make this country their home. However, I stuck with the book and gradually the tales related of both good and bad times [...]

    12. Loved this too - third in the trilogy! The author's writing is superb, and her adventures and reflections on Greece are not to be missed. Looking forward to her next book!
