The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows by Jenni Keer #Review #Giveaway



Welcome to the blog today as part of the celebrations for Jenni Keer's novel, The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows. I am also delighted to have a great Giveaway for you to win. Details on how to enter are at the foot of this post. First, a little about the book: 

When Maisie Meadows finds herself single and jobless on New Year’s Day, she resolves that this will be the year she focuses on bringing her scattered family back together. Romance is all very well, but it’s the people you grew up with that matter the most.



But a new job working at an auction house puts her in the path of Theo, a gorgeous but unattainable man who she can’t help but be distracted by. As their bond begins to grow, Maisie finds herself struggling to fulfil the promise she made to herself – but the universe has other ideas, and it’s not long before the Meadows family are thrown back together in the most unlikely of circumstances…


Can dealing with other people’s treasures help Maisie to let go of the past, and teach her who she ought to treasure the most?


My Thoughts

I always enjoy a story with a bit of magic interwoven throughout and it in no way jarred in this story. You can escape into Maisie Meadow's world as she starts out to find the missing parts of the mysterious black and white tea set. You can easily visualise the world of antiques at Gildersleeve's and you get to meet such a variety of people through it. There are all ages and Maisie seems to have a talent at bringing people together.

    Behind the search for the missing tea set lies Maisie's desire to bring her scattered family together. They all have their own stories and you get to find out a lot about Maisie and her hopes for the future through them. Theo is a great character, full of unconscious charm. Particularly touching is the relationship which Theo and Maisie form with Arthur which really adds to the charm of the story. 

In short: A charming story with a touch of magic.   
 

About the Author


Jenni Keer is a history graduate who embarked on a career in contract flooring before settling in the middle of the Suffolk countryside with her antique furniture restorer husband. She has valiantly attempted to master the ancient art of housework but with four teenage boys in the house it remains a mystery. Instead, she spends her time at the keyboard writing women's fiction to combat the testosterone-fuelled atmosphere with her number one fan #Blindcat by her side. Much younger in her head than she is on paper, she adores any excuse for fancy-dress and is part of a disco formation dance team.
