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?
Funny, Delightful and Truly Entertaining!
A super read! One I’ve enjoyed so much that I’m going to make sure that I add The Hopes and Dreams of Lucy Baker to my list.
Maisie Meadows thinks it’s about time something went right in her life; she needs a new job, has a strong desire to gather her widespread family close once more and perhaps New Year’s day is the perfect time to begin to plan for the future. Who knows what the coming year will bring?
What a novel! Beautifully written in an easy, flowing style which pulls the reader in from page one and keeps them in a firm grip until the very final one. A gorgeous story about life, work, relationships, new friends and, last but not least, family. The differing storylines are easily intertwined, and it makes for a smooth and immensely enjoyable read. Funny, delightful, and truly entertaining – this one really struck a chord with me and I could not find fault even if I wanted to. I will certainly look out for this author’s future novels, I loved this one so much and the fabulous cover really drew me in to begin with. It has ‘winner’ stamped all over it, and is a solid five star read!

Meet 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.
The Hopes and Dreams of Lucy Baker was published in January 2019.
The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows is out in July 2019.
