Blog Tour / Giveaway: Just Like Rebecca by Tilly Tennant
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?

I loved the first installment of this series, Little Acts of Love, and this follow up doesn't disappoint! The Mishaps in Millrise series follows Phoebe and Jack through the trials and tribulations of a relationship in the real world - pressure at work, family troubles, and in the case of Just Like Rebecca, meeting the parents. Splitting the story into novellas like this is a great idea, they're just long enough for you to read in one sitting - though they do leave you wanting more! To be honest I don't get the appeal with Jack yet - maybe I need to read Mishaps and Mistletoe (the novella where Phoebe and Jack first get together) to fall for him like Phoebe has. I'm certainly interested to see what's going to happen with the Adam Hendry situation! Midnight is still my favourite character, she's just delightfully wacky - and Maria is adorable. An easy read written in Tilly Tennant's signature warm and witty style - I'm looking forward to the next installment!

About the Author
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
