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).
I am delighted that the book recently received its first rating on Barnes & Noble and it’s 5 stars! Here’s an extract from the review of the book that appeared on the Romantic Historical Reviews website in November 2016:
“Millicent is vivacious, endearing and determined. I truly enjoyed her character a great deal from the first page to the last. She reminded me of Sybil from Downton Abbey; in fact, this novel has other overtones from that drama.”

My sweet, First World War romance, ‘Miss Millie’s Groom,’ will be free on Amazon from 9th to 13th February:
It is the summer of 1914 and Britain teeters on the brink of war. Society girl, Millicent Awbridge, is oblivious to the impending conflict and preoccupied with the recent shooting of her horse. When she confronts the culprit, Ryan O’Flynn, a groom in her father’s service, Millie finds romance rather than hostility. The encounter sparks a series of events that brings Millie’s burgeoning womanhood to fruition. Millie and Ryan’s affair is conducted in secret but Millie’s aunt has her suspicions and is determined to bring an end to it. Inevitably, the war also impacts on the young people’s lives and others are implicated in the muddle. Will Millie and Ryan ever be truly united?
Also, if you have Kindle Unlimited, ‘The Laird’s Right-Hand Lady’ (which has a seasonal feel, being set during winter in the Scottish Highlands) and ‘Miss Millie’s Groom,’ are both free to download through that scheme:
