Story of a Secret Heart is based on the author’s life as she deals with a broken heart and finds distraction in a new man that introduces her to a completely different world. Though she drinks to excess, she gains confidence and finds she enjoys living on the edge. It has humor, heartbreak, growth, dangerous decisions, and excessive drinking & partying. I found her story intriguing and was constantly curious as to what she was going to get herself into next. One thing I found just a little bit annoying was the frequent excuse of “because I’m British and polite” statement. I loved the chapter ending quotes. They summed up the chapters perfectly. I did not see the last line of the book coming – it is a shocker! This is a quick and easy read. It was a bit different of a read for me, kind of like having a catchup conversation with a friend during girl’s night out and laughing and gasping at her crazy antics.

I was provided a free copy by the author for an honest review.

Story of a Secret Heart is about breaking up . . . and breaking down. It’s about the roller-coaster ride of a breakup and all the dating and relationship stories in-between.

Based on a true story


When I turned 30 I was single, alone and heart broken. I started writing as sort of therapy at the time, but after people started reading it and said it was actually good, I thought maybe others might like to hear my story. Maybe those going through a hard time will take something away from it. The book is the story of how my broken heart became the making of me. Even today, the stories in the book still make me laugh! Apart from that, you will find out so much more by reading the book……I love animals, especially cats, and I love to laugh.
