Emily Potens has led a charmed life up to now. Wealthy and smart, she breezed through college on daddy’s dime and, for the past ten years, she’s been living on her trust fund and the income from her laid-back job at an antiques store. But all that changes when her parents are killed in a mysterious accident. Emily takes solace in her kind employers and the job she loves, but her life is thrown into further chaos when her father is accused of fraud, and her trust fund is frozen until the investigation is complete. To top off her run of bad luck, Emily’s bosses decide to sell their shop and move to California. Out of sheer desperation, Emily takes a job as a house mother at the sorority to which she once belonged. Somewhere between renovations, a budding relationship with a handsome contractor, and the investigation of her father’s finances, things begin to turn sinister. Will Emily prove her father’s innocence in time to save her inheritance? Or will someone silence her to keep their own secrets?

It’s All Greek to Me by Maggie Aldrich is fun and engaging, with great characters and lots of charm. Emily Potens is realistic and quite relatable, despite being a trust-fund baby. The plot is fast moving and engrossing, and the mystery is intriguing. The relationship between Michael and Emily is well developed. Maggie Aldrich deftly avoids clichés and stereotypes and her characters are perfectly fleshed out, growing and evolving throughout the story. This a perfect book for anyone looking for a fun and easy summertime read.
