Milly Johnson – The Queen of Wishful Thinking

Oh Milly Johnson, how I love you. I went to get this book signed at Waterstones in Leeds, and Milly was as lovely as always, a proper Yorkshire lass! The young ladies in front of me were very clear that they were getting the book for their mums, I was like ‘Nope, this is all for me!!!’.

As always, the thing I loved most about this book was the relate-able characters who I fell in love with immediately, especially Bonnie. You can tell she’s been worn down by a loveless (to say the least) marriage, but she’s such a kind lady and deserves much better, just like her new boss Lewis. And I also loved that this book was set in the same area as The Teashop on the Corner, a lovely touch that made everything feel very familiar.

As with other books like this, it’s pretty obvious where the plot is heading, but Milly did a great job of keeping me hooked to the very end. The drama between Bonnie and Stephen is brilliantly written, as is the unfolding of events between Lewis and Charlotte and their group of friends. I won’t say too much to give away any spoilers!

This book is honestly Milly at her finest, I was just sad the book was over so soon!!
