Love is like a fine perfume. The top note draws you in, an instant attraction, but the Heart Note is the true essence. Like true love – a great perfume should be a woman’s perfect match.

At least, that’s what perfume counter manager, Lily Lucas, tells her customers in one of Australia’s largest department stores. 

It’s almost Christmas, the store is bedecked with baubles and Lily has about eleventy billion gifts to wrap and sell. She and her team of spritzer chicks are glamorous, professional and hoping they don’t have to wear the hideous red onesies and reindeer antlers the store manager has in mind.

The high point of Lily’s work life is Christos Cyriakos, ex-cop, security guard, possible Greek god. He's a mystery box she’d love to unwrap. But can she trust him?

All Lily wants for Christmas is to kiss Christos (and more), catch a band of thieves running amok in the store, and live happily ever after. Is that too much to wish for?

A good fun and festive novella set around the perfume counter of a department store in Melbourne.  It was light hearted and just really enjoyable. 

The opening scene had me laughing and those weren't the only ones, there are some crazy outfits for the spritzer chicks,  some great descriptions of various aspects of perfume including the scenes and notes that make it up, and a gorgeous security man. 

There is chemistry galore coming from Lily and Christos and I really enjoyed meeting both of these characters in addition to some of the others that work in the store. 

If you are wanting a quick slightly different festive rom com, then Heart Note is certainly worth a read. I really enjoyed it, and  already curious to see what will happen in other books of this series. 

Thank you so much to Cassandra O'Leary for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
