Heart Note by Cassandra O’Leary

What a lovely book!

I really enjoyed reading Heart Note by Cassandra O’Leary.

It was romantic, festive fun with a little mystery thrown in.

A perfect read for a frosty night with a cosy blanket and a hot Chocolate (with cream and marshmallows of course!).

The main story is about Lily and her crush on the very gorgeous security guard Christos but is all as it seems? Her struggles with her little sister, wanting to own her own shop, oh and not to forget stock keeps going missing at work.

The main character is relatable, which makes you care about what’s going on in the story. Then you have the irresistible Christos, can he be trusted? Is he too good to be true? They are both likeable as characters and you want that happy ever after but does it happen?

I will let you read and find out for yourselves but this book is the perfect rom com, it has love, lust and festive cheer.

Although the romance seems a little too perfect at times, isn’t that want we want when reading a romance? We want to be taken out of our ordinary world and just for a little while get lost in the make believe.

I would definitely recommend this to you, perfect stocking filler.

Happy Christmas! I’m off to find me a Christos!!

Answers from Heaven by Theresa Cheung & Claire Broad

Growing up I have always had a fascination with ghosts and spirits, my whole family have.

In our house it’s a family get together to watch the new series of Most Haunted!

It’s always been something we spoke of and something that all of us have experienced (that’s a whole different blog).

So when it came up to read and review “Answers from heaven” of course I had to do it.

In the last few years, my belief in the afterlife or heaven has not been as strong as it was, just because I let life get in the way and didn’t spend so much time thinking about it and I let other people’s opinions take over.

After reading “Answers from heaven”, my interest has been renewed.

With 2 different views being told by two completely different insights, one by Theresa Cheung who has dedicated her life to the paranormal and Claire Broad who works as a medium, you get a great glimpse of what they think and their views, it’s nice to hear two sides.

I also love hearing about other people’s experiences with the paranormal.

There must be more or is our brain and imagination just that powerful?

I know there are skeptics and ones who would read this book and write it off as nonsense (you can’t convince everyone) but I generally feel that if you are intrigued just give this a little read.

If nothing else, it manages to bring a comfort knowing that there could be more and where’s the harm in that?

Answers from heaven is a good book with heart warming stories and facts.

I’m glad I decided to read it, maybe I was meant to read it.

Maybe it was a sign!

Cover Reveal, Cassandra O’Leary, Heart Note 💗

Heart Note

Love is like a fine perfume. The top note draws you in, an instant attraction, but the Heart Note is the true essence. Like true love. A great perfume should be a woman’s perfect match.

At least, that’s what Lily Lucas tells the perfume counter customers. Personally, Lily is tired of perfumes with a sickly sweet top note that make her dizzy. She definitely does not want to stick her nose in another scent with a base note of stinky old socks.

After leaving her home in Sydney, Lily moves to Melbourne and a new job as a perfume counter manager in a major department store. One day she wants to own a Parisian-style perfumerie, but at the moment she’s spritzing perfume on unsuspecting customers and ringing up purchases until she falls off her high heels at the end of a long day.

The high point of Lily’s work life is Christos Cyriakos, the ex-cop senior security guard, who happens to look like a Greek god. She’d happily stare at him all day, but keeps falling at his feet like a klutz. It’s kind of embarrassing. No other man has ever had this effect on her. He smells so good up close, she gets a little woozy. But in a good way.

Rumours about Christos swirl around the department store staff. There’s a scent of scandal. The reason he quit the police force wasn’t a happy one. But he’s the strong, silent type. A mystery box. Lily hopes she can get close enough to unwrap him. When he asks for her help, it seems like the perfect opportunity to get to know him better…if she can trust him.
It’s almost Christmas and the whole store is bedecked with decorations, and Lily has to gift wrap and sell eleventy billion gift sets assisted by a team of glamorous spritzer chicks. Meanwhile sneaky guys are trying to get into the store room at night and stock is going missing. It could be an inside job. Lily helps Christos setup a sting. They are a team, sort of. But why won’t he confide in her?

She’d like to be kissed by Christos (and more) preferably not while wearing the hideous red velvet onesie and reindeer antlers all the spritzer chicks are supposed to wear. But can they solve a crime, and get it together to go on an actual date before Christmas?

A Woman of No Importance – Vaudeville 🎭

I don’t know much about Oscar Wilde I’m not going to lie but I do know that he wrote some amazing work, from Dorian Grey to the Importance of being Earnest.

His work is well known and his roles famous.

He was ahead of his time and dared to write what others would not.

So when I got the invite to see “A woman of no importance” at the Vaudeville theatre as part of their Oscar Wilde season, I, of course said yes.

It all started with West End Live! 🦇 Bat out of Hell 🦇

It all started with West End Live!

I was in London with my friend Sadie, we were walking around trying to decide what to do when we were hit by the wonderful sound of musicals, I love a good musical.

I had no idea that West End live was on the day I went to London but I’m so glad it was.

We found somewhere to sit and made ourselves comfortable, it was perfect.

Then all of a sudden this man in tight trousers with amazing crazy blonde hair and eyeliner (I’m a sucker for a man in eyeliner) came onto stage, he starting belting out classic meatloaf.

Labour of Love – Noel Coward 🎭

Politics, not my strong point.

I mean I know the basics, well I know who is prime minister (it’s a start).

I try to pay attention to what’s going on but it just goes over my head.

So when I saw that this play was about the Labour Party, I was a bit worried, but it turns out I didn’t need to worry.

Labour of Love (written by James Graham) is warm, witty and highly hilarious, you don’t need to know everything about politics to enjoy it.

The writing and superb acting from the cast will help you with that.
