I’m so pleased to be part of the blog blitz for this wonderful book today. Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
When Maisie Meadows finds herself single and jobless on New Year’s Day, she resolves that this will be the year she focuses on bringing her scattered family back together. Romance is all very well, but it’s the people you grew up with that matter the most.
But a new job working at an auction house puts her in the path of Theo, a gorgeous but unattainable man who she can’t help but be distracted by. As their bond begins to grow, Maisie finds herself struggling to fulfil the promise she made to herself – but the universe has other ideas, and it’s not long before the Meadows family are thrown back together in the most unlikely of circumstances…
Can dealing with other people’s treasures help Maisie to let go of the past, and teach her who she ought to treasure the most?

I loved this author’s previous book, but she has excelled herself in this one.
Straight away I loved the characters, particularly Maisie herself, Jonny, her eccentric boss at the auction house, and Nigel, who I’ll let you discover for yourself, he’s a sweetie.
I could picture the setting perfectly, and loved hearing the tales of the auction house.
Family is such an important thread in this book, and pulls the whole plot together.
There’s an element of mystery, as the tea-set is reunited, and the story of its previous owners emerges.
This is such a charming, readable novel, with wonderful characters, a nicely flowing plot, so much love, and so much humour. Thoroughly enjoyable.
MY RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Jenni Keer is a history graduate who embarked on a career in contract flooring before settling in the middle of the Suffolk countryside with her antique furniture restorer husband. She has valiantly attempted to master the ancient art of housework but with four teenage boys in the house it remains a mystery. Instead, she spends her time at the keyboard writing women’s fiction to combat the testosterone-fuelled atmosphere with her number one fan #Blindcat by her side. Much younger in her head than she is on paper, she adores any excuse for fancy-dress and is part of a disco formation dance team.
The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows is out in July 2019.
