synopsispinkChasing dreams can be tough, even when you run as fast as your bespoke stilettos will take you…

As Megan Winter’s wedding day approaches, her heart flutters with excitement. Dylan Dunkin-Buckshaw is a great catch. Handsome in a sharp, confident kind of way, he’s everything she’s ever wanted in a man and a husband. A match made in heaven—right?

With a fledgling shoe design business that’s set to take off, Megan decides to take control of her life and strut her stuff. With the help of loyal friends and a handsome stranger she begins to turn heads and get noticed. She’s hitched her wagon to the stars and she’s planning on enjoying the ride, wearing her best stilettos whilst she does it!

But will she reach those glittering stars? Is there something lurking in the shadows to hold her back? Under all the excitement and sparkle of her new found adventures there seems to be an ominous presence trying to take the shine from her happiness.


★★★★☆ : Great! I liked this book!

Megan Winter was about to get married to  Dylan Dunkin-Buckshaw, and before walking down the aisle, she and her friends, Brendon & Georgie, drank champagne to celebrate. Everything was going smoothly in the wedding, until the vicar asked them to speak or forever hold their peace. What happened next was unexpected.

Megan realized her shoe business needed rescuing after some partners pulled off their orders and her shoes weren’t making much of a sale. A night to unwind led to a chance meeting with James Carter and soon, everything was falling into place. But the past had its way of crawling to the present and before Megan knew it, her future was doomed.

This was definitely a fun read! Megan Winter was a strong character, a feisty and naughty one at that. She kinda reminded me Becky Bloomwood of the Shopaholic series, but I think Megan had more depth. Her friends, Brendon and Georgie were likeable, too. I’d say, this story took me on an adventure worth undertaking. I love the ending, it leaves something for the reader to watch out for. Jess Wright was able to write an intricate story that is sure to make the readers’ hearts go a-flutter!
