Fledgling journalist Ellie Newton is keen to prove herself when she lands a hard-won job at the Millrise Echo. So when reports come in of a man camped on the corner of a local street, refusing to move until the girl who has jilted him takes him back, Ellie is on a mission to get the scoop.
She arrives to meet Ben Kelly, a man she is instantly attracted to. But she has a job to do and an incredible story to write and has soon pledged to help him win back the girl of his dreams. With Ellie’s help, Ben’s plight captures the hearts and imaginations of the public. And when a TV film crew appears to make a feature on the most romantic gesture the town of Millrise has ever seen, Ellie’s mission gets its happy ending…
But while Ellie has been busy fixing the lives of her wayward parents, providing shoulders for heartbroken friends to cry on, and worrying about her terminally-ill aunt, she hasn’t noticed that she has also been falling quietly in love – with the very man she has now ensured is hopelessly out of her reach
Ellie must choose between doing the right thing, and the thing that feels right. And whatever choice she makes, someone will get their heart broken.
Thank you to JB for letting me take part in this blog tour. I have previously read Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn and enjoyed it a lot so I was very excited when I heard that Tilly had a new book out. I heard lots of chatter on twitter (literally the best place for book recommendations) about how great this book was and I knew I had to read it. I am also a HUGE fan of The Script so when I saw the title of this book I was immediately intrigued.
Ellie is a report for her local newspaper. She is extremely strong and brave. I don’t know how she held it together with everything that was going on in her life. Between her parents and her aunt she had a lot of stress in her life. She does have some really great friends though. I really loved Patrick. I think I would have fallen for his charms if I worked at the Echo. Kas and Jethro were great characters too.
Ben is Mr Romantic. I mean any guy who camps on a street corner for a girl even for one night has to be beyond romantic right? Naturally, he’s now made every guy hate him because their wives/girlfriends are all in love with him. The Constance Street girls were hilarious but also very protective of Ben, much to their husbands annoyance of course.
This book drags you through every emotion and when you finish that last page you feel like you have been through a such a journey. This book brought up a lot of feelings that I thought I had long buried. The emotional pain that Ellie and her family go through with her Aunt’s illness really got to me.
This is a beautiful story which shows that you should never shy away from love because you’re afraid you might get hurt.
Tilly is an amazing writer and I look forward to reading many more of her books in the future.
