The Secret of a Heart Note - Stacey Covington-Lee

I feel in love with Stacey Lee's second novel, Outrun the Moon. I was super excited to have won an ARC copy of her newest book, The Secret of a Heart Note.


  • I love the herb alchemy
  • BFF is <3. She helped save the book when I was annoyed with Mimosa. 
  • It has all the typical cute, angst-y, confused, awkward, and adorable romance troubles. 
  • The twist was really obvious. It made the story feel a bit long and Mimosa a tad irritating. Like, just wanted to shake her and her mom so badly sometimes!
  • Mimosa's old school mom was realistically annoying and stubborn. She's good and loves her daughter but is her own person with her own issues. I'm really glad how their relationship was done all the way through. 


The Secret of a Heart Note is good and cute, perfect for all the YA contemporary fans wanting a little drama and magic. The Secret of a Heart Note has a unique premise with a typical plot and diverse characters with standard relationships. 


While I enjoyed The Secret of a Heart Note, it didn't capture me like Outrun the Moon


I adore Stacey Lee's writing and skill, so I'll be reading her other book Under A Painted Sky and anything new.

Great Start to a Paranormal Romance series, plus DRAGONS!
The Temptation of Dragons (Penny White) (Volume 1) - Chrys Cymri
eBook Icon Adult Icon paranormal Romance Icon Dragons Icon Others Icon Love Triangle Icon Sexy Icon
I won this from a Booklikes giveaway. I entered because dragons! While I love dragons, I’ve admittedly never thought of a romantic relationship with one, so that’s new.
I was worried about the religion aspect since I’m an atheist. But it’s handled really well. It does have plenty of references, mentions theological discussions, hierarchy, sermons, praying, etc etc. It’s very natural due to our heroine’s job and she does the job well. It’s interesting to see the inside of small town worship.
  • I like how Penny handles herself and situations.
  • I loved Morey the griffon and Raven the dragon.
  • I did not like how [Spoiler] worked out. It was like she was two different people with no depth or justification. This is what hampered the ending.
  • I enjoyed the geeky references. The author clearly know what she’s about. 
  • I liked the family drama and character progression.
  • I loved the crime mystery.
  • I did not like how the experts missed a clue when they shouldn’t have and she stumbles over it.
  • I liked how it’s a slow building up.
  • There’s not romance beyond “dates”, interest and very flirting.
  • There is a love triangle, one that makes sense: Torn between normal human and the complicated and new feelings of riding a dragon.
  • I liked how it has a solid end and it mostly worked.
  • I LOVED the world building and magical, mystical, fantastical creatures. I fucking love the way dragons act. Some absolute shits, but that fits.
  • I WILL be continuing the series.


I did have some slight issues but it's enjoyable and worth it.
Recommended For: 
Fans of the genre and dragons. And if you don't love dragons, something's wrong. Note: I wrote this review after reading and it’s been sitting in this form for 2 weeks. I’d love to expand but can’t. I don’t know why.
