About the book:
Reach for a Star
What if your dreams were so close you could reach out and touch them?
How could anyone resist Michael Tennant, with his hypnotic blue eyes and voice like molten chocolate? Jessie Simmons certainly can’t. But Jessie’s a single mum who can’t sing to save her life – there’s no way she’ll ever cross paths with the star tenor.
At least that’s what she thinks until she’s unexpectedly invited to take part in a new reality TV show.
The premise? Professional singers teach hopeless amateurs how to sing. The surprise? Jessie’s partner is none other than Michael Tennant! As she becomes better acquainted with the man behind the voice, will Jessie find out the hard way that you should never meet your idols? Or will she get more than she bargained for?
About the author:
A former pharmacist, I’m now a medical writer who also writes romance. Some days a racing heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero.
With two teenage boys and a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), any romance is all in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn’t always about hearts and flowers – and heroes come in many disguises.

Reach for a Star by Kathryn Freeman is a lovely, fun and heartwarming read that I thoroughly enjoyed. It centres around a reality TV show that single mum Jessie Simmons somehow finds herself a part of. The premise is simple: professional singers teach hopeless amateurs how to sing. And to Jessie’s shock and surprise she is paired up with none other than Michael Tennant, the superstar singer with the hypnotic blue eyes and gorgeous voice who she has had a crush on for some time.
What follows is a heartwarming and often hilarious tale as Jessie becomes better acquainted with the man behind the voice. Will Jessie find out that meeting your idols isn’t always a good thing? Or will she find that there’s so much more to Michael Tennant than at first meets the eye?
I loved this book. It’s the perfect book to curl up with as the nights draw in, taking you on a journey of pure escapism as Jessie slowly falls under the spell of the complex but charming Michael. I’d recommend this book to anyone who’s looking for a light and fun read that will leave you feeling warm and happy as you turn the final page.
Reach for a Star is simply gorgeous! It was the first book I’d read by Kathryn Freeman, but it definitely won’t be my last. Recommended.
Reach for a Star by Kathryn Freeman is available to buy now.
