Blog Tour: Review: Just Like Rebecca by Tilly Tennant
Welcome to my stop on the Just Like Rebecca blog tour which has been organised by Brook Cottage Books. I’m very pleased to be taking part and hope you enjoy your time here. Do also make sure you enter the giveaway at the end of the post!
Phoebe’s new role at work is keeping her busier than ever. Just as she’s finding her feet, however, new boss, Dixon, lands a bombshell: Hendry’s toy store is in dire financial straits and it’s up to him and Phoebe to save it. This isn’t exactly what she signed up for and she’s going to need all the help she can get. So it’s a pity that the only help she has comes in the form of Midnight, her purple-haired colleague who wouldn’t know an employee rule-book if it slapped her in the face…
At home, Jack’s brother, Archie, and their mum, Carol, seem determined to make Phoebe’s life hell, however hard she tries. And now Jack seems to have a new rival too: Adam Hendry, slick heir to the Hendry’s empire, who is making it very clear he’d like to involve Phoebe in a hostile takeover. Just how far will he go to get what he wants?
Phoebe’s drama’s continue in the second part of the Mishaps in Millrise novella series. Her quirky uncertainty at her job and life makes her a fun character to read.
My doubts from the first book about her relationship with Jack continued to grow in this book, not only because the odds are stacked against them but because I am just not feeling it. The relationship still feels very one-sided, or rather more of a love affair between Phoebe and Jack’s daughter rather than Jack himself, but this adds an intersting and realistic dimension to me reading someone desperately trying to be in a relationship you just can’t see working out…I mean, how often does that happen in real life?!
Her work life is great, I love the things she is getting up to at work and Midnight is a wonderful character. We all need a Midnight in our lives…seriously!
Phoebe also attracts less of a Prince Charming and more of a Dark Knight in the form of the bosses son Adam. This is such an interesting dynamic and I can’t wait to see how this plays out in the next installment.
Just Like Rebecca has continued the playful, easy read which started in Little Acts of Love. I highly recommend getting your teeth into this series!
Thank you to Brook Cottage Books for inviting me onto this blog tour and for the ARC for my review.

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
