What They Say:

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. 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…

Little Acts of Love:  Mishaps in Millrise Part 1

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 girlfriend and mother – who’s been dead for five years…

What I Say:

I would like to thank Brooks Cottage Books and author Tilly Tennant for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

We first met Phoebe and Jack in Tilly's Christmas story Mishaps and Mistletoe and I'm really glad that she has decided to revisit them with a four-part series.  As the blurb says they are now five months down the line and still finding out about each other.

Phoebe decides to try for promotion and the interview for this is hilarious.  Midnight talks Phoebe into doing something crazy for the interview.  I love Phoebe and Midnights friendship, but I don't think she is the best influence on Phoebe.  

Jack and Pheobe's relationship still seems to be going strong until Jack's brother turns up and he decides to hide something from Pheobe.  An interesting start to this new four part novella serie and I'm looking forward to the next one as I love all of Tilly's books.  This story is really sweet and Jack and Pheobe are a lovely couple but I sense trouble ahead.

5 out of 5 stars


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.
