A shock development turns Phoebe’s world upside-down. But it’s one that Jack has difficulty coming to terms with too, and they seem to be growing further and further apart. Archie continues to stir up trouble between them, until one night his reckless actions almost end in tragedy. And he’s not the only one causing problems in Phoebe’s life, as Midnight adds her own peculiar spanner in the works.
Phoebe buries herself in her job, and it looks as though Hendry’s might actually be on the road to financial recovery. But if she loses Jack and Midnight, what will it all be for?
Thank you to JB for letting me take part in this tour. I had previously enjoyed Parts 1 and 2 to this story so I knew I had to read the next installment.
This book picks up pretty much exactly where the last one left off. Archie is still causing problems for everyone in his life and Jack still hasn’t kicked him out, Jack’s Mum is still not keen on Phoebe and Adam Hendry is still trying to pursue Phoebe. It’s certainly all happening in Millrise.
When Phoebe find out some news that turns her world upside down she hopes that the one person she can count on is Jack. Unfortunately Jack can’t seem to get his head around the piece of news and this causes them to drift apart.
I know it must have been tough for Jack but to be honest I thought he was a little insensitive. He didn’t take Phoebe’s feelings into consideration and was pretty selfish. By the end of the book I was pretty angry at him.
I really felt for Phoebe. She’s got Jack’s Mum shouting at her, Jack not sticking up for her, Archie just generally being horrible to her and now she has this news on top of everything else. Then when Jack lets her down I am surprised she managed to hold it all together as well as she does.
I really liked the introduction of May. She seemed genuinely lovely.
Just like the other parts this is well written and was the perfect afternoon read. Tilly has left us on a bit of a cliffhanger and I’m really hoping I get that last part soon.
