Sometimes the best things start in the strangest ways …. with a giggle!

On a night out in Edinburgh, single mum Liza-Belle Graham finds herself revealing her hopes and dreams to a green-eyed stranger. Liza always wanted to run an “arty-crafty-booky” business, and she’s seen the perfect empty shop to make her dreams a reality. No harm in telling the stranger. It’s not like she’ll see him again …

But Scott McCreadie is no mystery man – he’s an interior designer looking for new premises. And who does Liza bump into when she arranges a viewing? None other than Scott trying to steal her perfect shop!

Is Liza’s arty-crafty-booky dream in jeopardy, or is a new dream about to begin?

    Dark haired green eyed fallen angel meets (or is it meets again?) red haired brown eyed water sprite. Fireworks ensue, and secrets are revealed. Oh, and lots of magic (or is it?), a possibly psychic cat, a precocious eleven year old, and a mysterious landlord. Put it all together and you have a wonderfully romantic story filled with drama, music, Celtic mysticism and everything else you could want from a story. So well written, easy to read and compelling to boot.

    This is such a pleasant easy read about single mum Liza and Scott with whom she met on a well deserved night out but something about him feels familiar…and does he want to steal her thunder or help a damsel in distress.

    Although this book has no references to previous books and is completely stand alone, it was lovely to have Nessa and her cat, Schubert, pop in with his usual mystical appearances. A lovely easy read to escape to.

    This is a fun story pitting two people against one another to rent the same property and their subsequent problems. Scott and Lisa having met in a bar then seem to be constantly meeting and rubbing each other the wrong way. Their story will keep you smiling with the odd giggle thrown in. Add a slightly witchy sister, together with her cat, Schubert, into the mix and there is something for everyone in this book. A good finish makes this a great book.

    Such a lovely story – put a smile on my face from start to finish. Single mum Liza hits it off with Scott on their first meeting. But then they become competitors for the same property for their dream business. Steve can’t understand how Liza can resist his charm! Can they ever become friends or even more? Highly recommend!

    Mow wow – Schubert rides again! I love these quirky little stories where Schubert the cat and his feisty owner, Nessa, pop up with their little interventions. Another winner from Kirsty Ferry for me, a most enjoyable romance with tweaks, which I once more had to read without stopping. My only problem is that I am now impatiently waiting for the next book! Keep writing, Kirsty ….

    A lighthearted and easy read, this is an excellent way to pass a few hours.

    One night in a pub, Lisa-Belle Graham divulges her dream of running a shop to a total stranger, and she has even found the perfect location. A few days later, when signing the lease for her new premises, she discovers she’ll have to share the property with this same stranger. Scott McCreadie has sneakily persuaded the landlord to lease him the top floor for his interior design offices. Sharing her shop was definitely not Liza’s intention. Scott reminds her of someone, but who?

    A red-headed woman, a lot like Lisa, has appeared in Scott’s dreams for years. But she’ll have to remain in his dreams as he refuses to combine business with pleasure.

    Lisa’s young daughter is determined to involve him in their family life, soon Scott realises that there’s more to life than working all the time.

    Easy reading, an ideal way to be entertained.
