The Ticklemore Tattler Blurb

Sometimes you have to write your own future…

The life of former journalist Juliette Seymour has been quiet and unassuming. Up until now, she’s been concentrating on running the local newspaper and raising her daughter. 

But all that is about to change when Juliette is informed that the Ticklemore Tattler is to fold and that she’ll be out of a job. She begins to wonder whether she can buy the newspaper and try to make a go of it herself.

Aware that she needs some advice she contacts Oliver Pascoe, little knowing that when her old colleague re-enters her life, his help isn’t the only thing she wants him for!

As she begins to fall in love, however, what she doesn’t realise is that Oliver has something he’s keeping from her.

A gorgeously uplifting story, perfect for fans of Holly Hepburn, Heidi Swain, and Isabelle Broom.

My Review

The Ticklemore Tattler is the sweetest romance I’ve read this year. What Liz Davies gives the reader is genuine and romantic. I love that the characters are older and have life experiences behind them. Davies portrays it in a way that melts your heart.

I love the village of Ticklemore. It is like the town I grew up in. I felt at home there. The characters are eccentric yet homey. I love how the whole village comes together to celebrate life and love.

The Ticklemore Tattler reminds me of the small town papers of my youth. I couldn’t wait to read the newspaper every week. There was a children’s section with puzzles and coloring pictures that I adored. Juliette might want to add that the revamped Tattler.

This novel is the second in the Ticklemore series. However, it worked perfectly as a standalone. There was information from the first book but, I would never have guessed that it’s part of a series. I learned just enough about Hattie and Alfred’s story and how it related to this book. But, I now want to go back and read the first book.

I am happy to award The Ticklemore Tattler 4 out of 5 stars. I take away a star only because of the predictability of the trope. But, if you are in the mood to boost your faith in humanity, pick up this novel.

About the Author – Liz Davies

Liz Davies writes feel-good, light-hearted stories with a hefty dose of romance, a smattering of humour, and a great deal of love.

She’s married to her best friend, has one grown-up daughter, and when she isn’t scribbling away in the notepad she carries with her everywhere (just in case inspiration strikes), you’ll find her searching for that perfect pair of shoes. She loves to cook but isn’t very good at it, and loves to eat – she’s much better at that! Liz also enjoys walking (preferably on the flat), cycling (also on the flat), and lots of sitting around in the garden on warm, sunny days.

She currently lives with her family in Wales, but would ideally love to buy a camper van and travel the world in it.
