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?

This was such a wonderful, charming and magical story that should definitely be on everyone’s reading list this summer.
I just fell in love with the main character Maisie who is trying to get her, rather dysfunctional, family back together. She was a great character full of quirky traits and really fun to read about. She has a big heart which just shines from the page and I felt quite sad to finish the book and leave her behind.
I thought this book had a wonderful flow to it which made it easy to get into. I liked the fact that the author resists the temptation to make everything perfect but instead includes some variety into the story with some sad moments alongside the funnier ones. I felt this made the story seem more realistic and like I was reading about a real family so felt more invested in the story.
This is the author’s second book and I’m very excited to read more from her in the future as she knows how to write some fabulous characters!
Huge thanks to Rachel from Rachel’s Random resources for inviting me onto the blog tour and to Avon for my copy of this book via Netgalley.
About 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.
