Heels and Hearts is based in both the UK and Cyprus. I have an English girl falling for a Greek Cypriot doctor. As many of you are aware, I lived in Cyprus for eight years and decided I’d like to incorporate the village of Polemi into my story.
Polemi is a rural village on the Southern side of Cyprus. I’m sharing images that inspired me to write certain scenes within the book, so when you eventually read it you will be able to get a feel for the scene I am describing.
Andreas takes Jessica on a romantic picnic and they sat on these hills overlooking the village. This is the olive tree they sat under to enjoy their food.
This is the view and walk they enjoyed. The yellow fennel is the plant Andreas pointed out and told Jessica to sniff. It smells of aniseed.
The Bougainvillea where the wedding scene takes place.
