Bookangel’s Review of ‘Miss Millie’s Groom’

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).

And here’s the full review:

To add to Maggie’s troubles, everybody thinks Cal is wonderful – Maggie just doesn’t see it.

Cal is determined to get his palatial, lakeside residence but, before long, the pursuit of Maggie becomes his main goal…

“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.”
