Can a little Cornish village panto convince a troubled Hollywood heart throb to act again?

Oh no it won’t! At least that’s what Zach Broussard initially thinks when the eccentric Anna Teague tries to railroad him into helping out with her community pantomime production in the run-up to Christmas. Zach has his reasons for leaving Hollywood behind, and his retreat to the remote village of Polcarne in Cornwall signals the start of a new acting free life for him.

But when Zach meets Anna’s daughter, Rosey – an ex concert pianist who has swapped Mozart for panto tunes – he starts to wonder whether he could change his mind, and not just about acting.

If nothing else, will the residents of Polcarne ensure Zach has a Christmas he never forgets?

Oh yes they will!

Available as an eBook, audioBook and paperback from Amazon.

    I was sent this lighthearted Christmas story in exchange for an honest review and am happy to admit that this story is one that can be an enjoyable Christmas read; saying that, I feel it can actually be read at almost any time of the year.

    The main characters, Rosy, Zach and Anna. Rosy’s mum all fit so well in this story about a small Cornish village panto that any reader would soon settle in to it. Each page makes you want to discover where the story is going, and whilst I found it predictable – well it is a Christmas story and they tend to be predictable, don’t they? – it never deterred me from enjoying the whole thing.

    The story centres around the annual village panto that has become almost an obsession for Anna. Rosy, her daughter is in charge of the music – and as an ex concert pianist knows her onions. Zack, a Hollywood actor, staying in the village in need of a bit of R & R soon finds himself helping out.

    The story really is a page turner and it will bring a smile to your face.
