As regular readers of Brontë Babe Blog will know, I am obsessed with all things Brontë. Unfortunately, due to certain events that have taken place in my life recently, I haven’t really had the heart to get stuck into much reading, and not a lot of motivation to blog. I’m doing rather a lot of flitting from book to book, and not really settling down to anything. However, I’m currently making my way through a Jane Eyre inspired novel by Tracy Neiss called Mr. R: A Rock & Roll Romance which has been entertaining me on my morning train journeys to work. I hope to have this finished and reviewed soon.

I am so delighted with Bookangel’s very thorough review of ‘Miss Millie’s Groom,’ my romance set during the First World War. Here’s an excerpt:
‘I’m glad to say this is one of the few [books] where the lead character does grow and learn throughout the story. The characters come across well and are consistent in what they are doing with all their flaws intact. This makes for a more interesting read as, to begin with, Millicent’s youth and inexperience are obvious, while those around her act in a more realistic manner. The setting around the war provides a solid backdrop to the events and helps to provide an interesting set of circumstances and situations to be overcome.
As a romance, it ticks all the right boxes, and it’s a pleasure to see it come with a well-written story behind it. Readers looking for a HEA will certainly enjoy it,’ (4-star review, Bookangel.co.uk).
