‘Tilly Tennant has obvious talent for turning the every day into a fairy tale… a sweet touch and light humour‘ BestChickLit.com
If you’re new to the town of Millrise, then come and meet the residents. But 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…
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 partner and mother – who’s been dead for five years…
To be continued…!
Little Acts of Love is the first of four Novellas in the Mishaps in Millrise series. I missed Mishaps and Misteltoe but I read so much about it that I was keen to see what was on offer here and I wasn’t disappointed.
Tilly Tennant has offered a comical character in Phoebe and it has been lovely getting to know her, and her friends and family in this first part.
Not having read the first installment of Millrise I don’t know much about what brought Jack and Phoebe together but I don’t feel the passion there between them, or that there is this lasting romance. It may be this is how this novella has been set up ready for the rest of the series to come together.
The one thing which I was very disappointed about was it ended so soon, just as I was getting into the flow of things it was over…so I guess I will have to get number two now!
About Tilly Tennant:
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.
Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn was her debut novel; published in 2014 it was an Amazon bestseller in both the UK and Australia. It was followed by Mishaps and Mistletoe and The Man Who Can’t Be Moved. Find out more about Tilly and how to join her mailing list for news and exclusives at http://www.tillytennant.com
