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?

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Jenni Keer’s latest novel: The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows.
The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows is such a charming, quirky story about a disjointed family. Maisie is the youngest sibling in the Meadows family of six. The family have had an eventful upbringing and with the myriad of personalities, that often clash, the siblings are all grown up and are living in various locations across the globe. Maisie has fond memories of an idyllic family Christmas and she has a vision of bringing the family back together to try and recreate this picture perfect family.
After an unexpected end to a relationship and job Maisie was on the lookout for new employment. With a new job comes new opportunities and new friends. Life for Maisie takes on new directions. Her new place of employment is full of colourful characters, each with their own stories to tell. Maisie takes it upon herself to help two individuals at work who appear a little lost.
I loved how the author Jenni Keer developed a dysfunctional family, it made them more relatable and realistic as a family are individuals that are forced to live together by bloodline. The introduction of new friends who were as unique and individual as some of the items brought into the auction house made for some great endearing and comedic scenes.
Maisie’s quest to bring her family together was eventful to say the least and was joined by another hunt to bring a special tea set back together.
I loved this story so much especially the interactions between the characters young and old. The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows is charming and fun with an air of mystery and is filled with plenty of romantic promise.
