Cassandra by Starlight Review and Giveaway

Thank you for stopping at my spot on the Cassandra by Starlight Book Tour and Giveaway. This Online Book Tour is brought to you by Innovative Online Book Tours. I will provide you with a synopsis of the book, review on the book, Susan Mac Nicol, a small bio from her. Visit the other blogs on this Book Tour to learn more about this book.

Cassandra by Starlight


A London woman is swept off her feet into the glamorous yet surprisingly dangerous world of an up-and-coming star of stage and screen.
Unconventional though she may be, Cassandra Wallace leads the life of an average Londoner, from blind dates to rush hour traffic. Then, along comes Bennett Saville. Charming, erudite, the up-and-coming actor is like the hero of a romantic movie. He sets Cassie afire like he has the stage and screen, and defies the tragedy that brought them together. From the tips of his Armani loafers to their scorching hot first kiss, he’s perfect. Only, he’s ten years younger and from the upper class, and those emerald eyes invite dangerous secrets. The world is full of hungry leading ladies, and every show must have its villain. Yet a true romance will always find its happy ending.

Sue Mac Nicol was born in Headingley, Leeds, in the United Kingdom. When she was eight years old her family emigrated to Johannesburg, South Africa. One day, after yet another horrific story of violence to friends, they decided it was time to leave. In December 2000 they found themselves in the Arrivals area at Heathrow and have stayed in the UK ever since, loving every minute of it.

In between her day job as a regulatory compliance officer for a financial services company in Cambridge and normal daily life, the inspiration for the Starlight series was born; Sue’s characters, Cassie and Bennett, finally made their debut onto the flickering screen of a laptop and gave her the opportunity to become a published author—a dream she’s had since being a young girl old enough to hold a pencil.

Sue is a member of the Romance Writers of America and the Romantic Novelists Association in the UK. She lives in a town house in the rural village of Bocking, Essex, with her husband of twenty eight years, Gary (who believes he deserves a long service award for putting up with her for so long), two children, Jason, 24, and Ashley, 19, and a mixed collie mongrel called Blu.

My Review:

I really enjoyed reading Cassandra by Starlight.  Cassandra Wallace is just an average middle aged woman who while going to work one morning had a misfortune accident that changed her enter life. While going to work a man fell off a bridge and hit her windshield.  She was hurt and was hospitalized and the man who fell died.

This is were the story beings.  Eric Saville is the man who died.  His brother who is a famous actor Bennett Saville wants to met the woman who was hurt, and visits her a number of times while in the hospital.  Once she leaves the hospital Bennett would like to continue to see Cassandra. All odds are against them including Bennett's father and mother not wanting him dating Cassandra. 

I love how the story unfolds with the unlikely couple dates and fall in love. There are many twist and turns that keep you turning the pages.  I am sure you will love this story as much as I did.
