What you need to know before your trail

Phoebe Clements’ life was a bit of a mess. Her boyfriend was killed in a freak accident, and then she lost her job just before Christmas. But when she wished for a new start, it came in the form of Jack, a gorgeous man she met in the grotto of a drunken Santa.

Five months on and their relationship is going from strength to strength: Phoebe’s just landed her dream job at Hendry’s toy store, and Jack’s little daughter adores her. But Phoebe is convinced her happiness can’t last, and when life decides to stamp all over her newfound luck, it seems she might be right…

There’s the small matter of Jack’s mother and her one-woman vendetta against Phoebe; there’s Jack’s troublesome brother, Archie, who moves in and turns their lives upside down; not to mention Hendry’s going into financial freefall, and Adam, the boss’s son, who seems determined to break up the happy couple so that he can claim Phoebe for himself.

Could things possibly get any worse? Phoebe is about to discover that if they can, they probably will… Can she turn things around, or will she lose sight of everything and everyone that matters in the chaos?

Travel Guide



Millrise, England

Fictional but doesn’t it sound lovely?

She couldn’t imagine working anywhere else. Along with Jack and Maria, the strange archaic toy store that had stood on the High Street of Millrise for almost a hundred yeas had dragged her back from a void that had opened up with Vik’s death and had nearly swallowed her whole

“Hendry’s have been selling today and game fro the children of Millrise for almost a hundred years but they’ve never really moved with the times and are being threatened by multinational toy companies and the internet They need someone to look after their PR and to work in bringing them into the 21st century.”

That toy store at the heart of Millrise village is where the story starts, wraps around everything within the four Millrise novels and….well, where does it end?

Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset, the oldest of four children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. She’s had years of dismal and disastrous jobs,  all of which probably led to the creation of Millrise and the characters in it.
