What she found though, was a virtual prison. Living upstairs in her Nana's house the tension between the stifling 'my house my rules' credo and the virtual necessity of free rent has her cooped up most hours of the day, either hiding in her own rooms, or acting the part of Nana Joy's live-in slave.
That is, until the obnoxious man who almost ran her over and a forbidden door change her outlook on everything London has to offer.
If you look really closely, you can see more tying the three Heart of the City novels together than simply the premise of a Melbourne girl finding her way in an exotic city, but for all intents and purposes they're pretty much standalone novels.
Told first person solely from Kate's point of view, the story finds her learning to spread her wings, confront her insecurities and, of course, get entangled with the arrogant man who drives an Aston Martin that looks like it came straight out of a James Bond movie.
With an engaging style that permeated the whole of the series, I found this book to be the most satisfying of the three as the tensions and secrets, misunderstandings and dramas left me, at the end of it all, with a smile on my face
Not my favourite in the series but an entertaining read none the less.
Katherine Brown aka Kate is from Australia and has flown to London to stay with her Nanna Joy. Kate is a writer of a blog which is named "Kate on the Thames. She writes about Beauty, Fashion and Travel. In the three weeks Kate has been in London she has felt like a prisoner in her own home as Nanna Joy feels that the streets are once not what they used to be and would rather Kate stay inside. With this Kate has had no inspiration to write on her blog. Kate has the whole entire top floor of the house. She has access to everything on this floor, except for one room and is not allowed to open this door. One day while Kate is looking for an umbrella, while Nanna Joy is out with Vera her carer, she decides to open this door and stumbles onto something that takes her breath away. This room is beyond her imagination and just may have everything she needs for the inspiration to starting writing on "Kate on the Thames".
Mr Jack Baker is everything you would imagine in tall, dark and handsome among many other swoony traits. Jack is Kate's next door neighbour and seems very intrigued and knows how to rub her the wrong way. Jack Baker is very mysterious with what he does, while Jack dresses and drives an Aston Martin and very James Bond...
Jack and Kate meet on the very first day of her arriving in London and nearly gets hit by Jack's Aston Martin. Then they run into each other at a pub which gets Kate all flustered over seeing the mysterious Jack Baker. Over the next few weeks Kate and Jack become friendly and leads into a friendship over the terrace of each other's homes. Kate spends the day in the mysterious room of Nanna Joy's home which has her with so much excitement and has to share it with someone and the last person she thought Kate would share it with is Mr Jack Baker. Jack is overwhelmed with what Kate has created which is his speciality.
"Kate on the Thames" has caught the attention of "London Bound" which is owned by none other Mr Jack Baker...
WOW what I would do to be in Kate's shoes right now with end full Contour and and to be in London. C.J. has written such a beautiful story that it makes you fall in love with London along with Beauty, Fashion and Travel. C.J. has written this story just like what Kate has achieved with "Kate on the Thames".
"C.J. on London Bound".
For all love of Beauty, Fashion and Travel and to follow your dreams this book is for you. For me it was for Travel but to be given the chance to come across anything like the Fashion Kate has at her fingertips would be a dream come true. But for now I will take the travel.

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I read Paris Lights just before requesting this - it was on KU and I really enjoyed it. This book links slightly with that, we met Kate briefly in book one, and as I haven't yet read book two there may be more link ups. Each are stand alone books though so no nasty cliff-hangers!!
Kate's a lovely girl but I kept wanting to say to her "stand up to Nana Joy". If ever a woman was misnamed that's her...Still, I guess Kate was afraid of being sent back, not living out her dream. The way she is though she isn't doing it either...but bullying is pervasive, it has a build up effect so that the person being bullied gets more scared, loses more of their character and becomes intimidated easily. That was clearly happening to Kate.
She gets to go out slowly, little increments of freedon aided by carer Vera, who's a real gem
Jack seems very arrogant when we first meet him, but slowly we meet the real person and when we find out more about him his first reactions were understandable. I really liked him, a true gentleman. They get closer, balcony meetings leading to some steamy encounters and things heat up.
Kate's discovery about the secret room in Nana Joys house leads to her moving on with her new blog, starting at last some of the things she'd hoped to do when coming to London.
Then the blog picks up, the heat between her and Jack picks up, what she doesn't realise is that secrets are also picking up and when all is revealed she's distraught.
I love a bit of drama, and that was perfect for me but...its over far too soon. I need to wallow a bit in heartbreak, and though Kate was gutted she soon got over it. Small crit but the difference between a four and a five for me.
I found the same thing with Paris Lights, a great read but the drama soon over. Others want their stories that way though, its the old horses for courses thing where you simply can't please everyone one.
Its a fun read, with some great humour tucked in, fabulous clothes, and a snapshot of the London Experience for Kate.
Stars: Four, an enjoyable read, with realistic characters and scenes.
