The Parent Trap (Mishaps in Millrise Book 3) by Tilly Tennant

A shock development turns Phoebe’s world upside-down. But it’s one that Jack has difficulty coming to terms with too, and they seem to be growing further and further apart. Archie continues to stir up trouble between them, until one night his reckless actions almost end in tragedy. And he’s not the only one causing problems in Phoebe’s life, as Midnight adds her own peculiar spanner in the works. 

Phoebe buries herself in her job, and it looks as though Hendry’s might actually be on the road to financial recovery. But if she loses Jack and Midnight, what will it all be for?

I would like to thank Brook Cottage Books and Tilly Tennant for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review, also for allowing me to be part of the blog tour.

We're back in Millrise with Pheobe and things are still not going to plan, Jack's brother is still around causing problems and then Pheobe gets herself into a state and falls out with Midnight, also she has the unwanted attention of Hendrys owner to contend with.

I've followed this series from Mishaps in Millrise and every time one of the books lands in my kindle I can't wait to read it.  Tilly's writing is wonderful and at points in the story I cried along with Pheobe, wanted to hit Jack and Midnight for how they acted.  I wanted to slap Pheobe as well but isn't that a sign of a great writer that I became so involved in the story?

I can't say how much I am looking forward to the final book in the series and will be sad to say goodbye to the characters. 

The Parent Trap is the third instalment in the Mishaps in Millrise series.

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
