Hey Y’awl (Sorry, I am rather into Nashville these days)
I’m back on the review tours, organised by the awesome JB over at Brook Cottage Books! This time is for a novella from an author I have read and enjoyed immensely before, Tilly Tennant.
About the Book
Mishaps in Millrise – a four-(novella)-part romantic spin-off from Mishaps and Mistletoe
If you’re new to the town of Millrise, then come and meet the residents. If you fell in love with Phoebe and Jack last Christmas in Mishaps and Mistletoe, then you’ve just been invited to the best reunion ever…
Little Acts of Love: Mishaps in Millrise Part 1
Almost five months have passed since Phoebe and Jack first met in the grotto of a drunken Santa at Hendry’s toy store in Millrise. Since then, Jack and his adorable daughter, Maria, have turned Phoebe’s life around. As she and Jack get closer, Phoebe decides it’s time to put her stagnating career back on track too, which means going for a big promotion at work.
But nothing is ever simple in the strange little world of Hendry’s, and Phoebe is soon wishing she’d stayed on the tills. At home, things aren’t much better as the couple brace themselves to meet their respective in-laws. It’s clear from the start that making friends and influencing people has never been harder. And to make it worse, Phoebe must compete for the affection of Jack’s parents with the perfect girlfriend and mother – who’s been dead for five years…
About the Author
Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset, the oldest of four children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. After years of dismal and disastrous jobs, including paper plate stacking, shop girl, newspaper promotions and waitressing (she never could carry a bowl of soup without spilling a bit), she decided to indulge her passion for the written word by embarking on a degree in English and creative writing, graduating in 2009 with first class honours. She wrote her first novel in 2007 during her first summer break at university and has not stopped writing since. She also works as a freelance fiction editor, and considers herself very lucky that this enables her to read many wonderful books before the rest of the world gets them.

Tilly has created more likeable and warm characters here, just as she did to entrance me in The Man Who Can’t Be Moved. Phoebe is the sort of girl I could see myself being friends with, a little scatty and all over the place, but its clear that she is trying to move on from a very difficult period in her life. Jack seems to be the handsome and supportive boyfriend, but there is just something about him I am not sure of. Of course, when I buy book two this week, I will know what that is! As this is a novella, I have to be very careful what I say! Its a tempting read that clearly opens up to much more over the rest of the series! Definitely recommend if you need a nice hour or so long read in the bath!!!
