Book Review: Mediterraneans on Love & Food


Carrie doesn’t review non-fiction books.

I happen to typically snarl my nose at reading non-fiction, so it wouldn’t be fair for me to review a book that I’m already predisposed to dislike.

So why did I agree to review this book?

The title and my diet. I’m following a Mediterranean diet, so I was curious to see how the Mediterranean Love Plan might fit in.

Yup. Real spiritual, scientific, savory and seductive.

However, it got me to read the book. And, surprisingly enough, I actually LIKED it!!! I found myself sharing passages with my husband as I read through the book in two sittings.

The Mediterranean Love Plan unveils the “7 Secrets of Passion” from some of the most romantic countries in the world:  Italy, France, Spain, Greece and Israel.  These countries often happen to be among the healthiest. So, do these Mediterranean countries actually have secrets to help us stay well and in love longer?


The Mediterranean Love Plan is written by Stephen & Misty Arterburn with Becky Johnson. The couple presents 7 secrets of passion told from their experience, observation, and research. Many of the examples shared are honest, heartfelt, and very inspiring.

It truly is as if the reader has a front row (think staring in a living room window) glimpse into the sexy and slower paced lives of those mentioned throughout the book.

As for secrets? I’m not certain anything within this book has ever been a secret.

Neglected? Yes.

Ignored in favor of something “better”? Yes.

Secret? No.

This book is full of practical examples and suggestions that ANY member of the human race can use in their own personal lives. You don’t need an inordinate amount of money, time, looks, or anything else to apply these seven simple “secrets” to your own love life.

If you are looking to connect with your spouse on a deeper level, this book will help you move towards that goal. If you are looking for affirmation that there is no such thing as a perfect relationship, well, this will help you find that proof. If you are looking for a deeply professional, textbook, well, find your boredom elsewhere because this isn’t it.

Are you married? Ever planning to get married? I encourage you to check out The Mediterranean Love Plan by Stephen & Misty Arterburn with Becky Johnson. You can find it here.
