The Theatre of Dreams
Musical theatre actress Tara is down on her luck and in desperate need of a job.
When terminally-ill octogenarian Kitty invites her to take over the running of her former dance academy in the old-fashioned resort of Hookes Bay, Tara thinks she’s found her guardian angel.
But it soon becomes very clear Kitty is being far from benevolent.
Too late, Tara realises helping Kitty will signal the end of an already tarnished career, unless she can pull off the performance of a life-time…
4 Fabulous Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟
This was a delightful debut, filled with engaging characters and set in a charming seaside village…. this book really was a true pleasure to read from first page to last…. I found myself so thoroughly invested in the lives of both Tara and Kitty… I was sad to say goodbye to these two ladies when the book ended….
Tara is a musical theater actor who finds herself in the midst of a scandal… wanting to escape the fallout a job as a dance instructor in a quiet seaside town sounds perfect….Kitty May appear to be Tara’s salvation, but things are not always as they seem… and Kitty has ulterior motives….
Told from alternating points of view, with more emphasis put on Tara’s perspective then kittys’…. both these women were very strong, determined, and extremely well developed characters…. they both had their eye on the prize and played their cards close to the vest… Tara out of necessity and Kitty out of strategy… I loved the dynamics between these two! I challenge anyone to read this book and not become completely enthralled with these characters… The character development in this book was just simply stellar!
A book filled with twists, second chances, friendship, nostalgia, charm, and a splash of romance… absolutely recommend to anyone who is a fan of women’s fiction with some interesting plot twists…

Author Bio – I like to write stories with a twist, a sprinkling of humour and a dash of tragedy. My aim is to entertain and raise a smile.
I’ve always had a very vivid imagination and my passion for writing began at a very early age. As a teenager I scribbled, then typed, numerous novels and short stories, none of which I was ever brave enough to show to anyone. My hobby was put on hold while mortgages, marriage, and motherhood took over. In fact, it stayed hidden for a good twenty or so years until I unexpectedly found myself with some spare time on my hands. In 2009 I left the UK to accompany my husband on an overseas work assignment to California. I started a blog about my life in the US, and from there everything mushroomed. I re-discovered my creative juices. I am a member of the Romantic Novelists Association New Writers Scheme and Hampshire Writers Society. I now live on the south coast of England with my husband and a very spoilt cat.
The Theatre of Dreams is my first novel
