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?

I do not normally read what would be classed as chick lit, but this was just so enjoyable. I adored Maisie Meadows. She made me laugh and want to know more about her. This is a story that just totally captivated me and I simply enjoyed it like none other I've read for some time. Praises to the author. I absolutely loved the character development of Maisie and I could relate to her so easily, despite the fact that her life circumstances and upbringing were so different to mine. I found the relationship development between Maisie and Theo both charming and involving and I was cheering for them all the way.

Jenni Keer's novel gives the reader a view of how your parents divorce during childhood can have life long effects on a person. After reading this novel I can't help but give second thoughts to what could be behind the quirky and lonely people in our world.

This is a story about marching to the beat of your own drum and learning that love and true friendship can carry you through even life’s darkest moments. Absolutely engaging and often hilarious, I didn’t want to put it down, and was sad when it ended. I highly recommend this utterly fabulous, charming and heartwarming novel.

Thank you NetGalley, Jenni Keer and Avon Books UK for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
