The blurb:

Mishaps in Millrise – a four-(novella)-part romantic spin-off from Mishaps and Mistletoe

Part 2 - Just Like Rebecca

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?

My Opinion:

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

Just Like Rebecca is the second part of Tilly Tennant’s Mishaps in Millrise series. It picks roght up after Little Acts of Love and continues the story of Jack’s and Phoebe’s relationship.

Phoebe has a lot to deal with – her work place iss truggeling financially, then there ist he meeting the parents issue and Jack’s brother Archie. Phoebe’s parents are very happy to meet Jack and they get along really well, but Jack’s mum is something else, always comparing her to Rebecca, which is really hard for Phoebe. The mystery around Jack’s brother Archie is lifted, but the situation doesn’t get better, because Archie is living with them now. Archie and Phoebe don’t see eye to eye and it’s also hanging between her and Jack.

The light and sunshine in this story is Jack’s daughter Maria, such a sweet girl and I love how well she is getting on with Phoebe, they had some cute moments.

This part of the story is full of twists and turns and Tilly makes the story a wonderful read with her bubbly, unique and fresh style of writing.


My possible cast:

Phoebe: Alyssa Miller

Jack: Jake Gyllenhaal

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 www.tillytennant.com
