The blurb:

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. 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…

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Mishaps in Millrise is a spin-off from Mishaps and Mistletoe. I haven’t read it, but I definitely plan on doing it, I wanna know how the story started and the blurbs sounds very exciting.

I can assure you though that it is not necessary to read the prequel. I got into the story quite fast and I loved the characters immediately. Tilly made it very easy to dive into this story with her unique, bubbly and fresh style of writing.

Phoebe and Jack are very happy and she also gets along really well with his daughter Maria. That’s not enough though, Phoebe is determined to fight for her career. Things seem to get better at work, but then at home everything gets worse. When Jack’s brother turns up, Jack is suddenly very secretive and mysterious and the situation of might meeting each other’s in-laws doesn’t make it better. Everything is tense and dramatic.

Phoebe’s best friend Midnight also adds a little spark here and there. There definitely never is a dull moment, Tilly really understands how to engage a reader. I enjoyed every page and I can’t wait for part 2!


My possible cast:

Phoebe: Alyssa Miller

Jack: Jake Gyllenhaal


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.
