The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows
By Jenni Keer
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 fulfill 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?
The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows is a delight to read!!!!
Maisie suddenly finds herself without a job after catching her ex with the new girl! She finds a new job in the auction house, Gildersleeves. She has no idea how this new job will change her life. In addition to the new job, she decides she wants to bring her dysfunctional family back together. Along the way, she will learn what family truly means and possibly find a new love.
Theo is her boss, and as they spend more time together, they grow closer and love may be on the horizon. He is just one surprise that destiny has in store for Maisie. As the title suggests, it’s a life journey she had never expected.
Not only is the book about Maisie, but it’s also about the secondary characters, such as Arthur, Johnny, and Theo, as well as Maisie’s family. Each has their own story to tell, but it never takes away from the book as a whole.
She will learn how complicated family can be, such as “their virtues and their weaknesses.” It will make her see how imperfect yet perfect families really are. It has a little bit of magic in the form of a teapot, with lots of love throughout. This is an enjoyable book that will bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart!
