The Perfectly Imperfect Woman by Milly Johnson. Review

Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and Milly Johnson for my ARC of The Perfectly Imperfect Woman.

I’ve always loved Milly Johnson’s Books since I read a sampler of It’s Raining Men which was being given out at Waterstones in Meadowhall. I also have a soft spot for Milly being a fellow Yorkshire Woman, I’m originally from Rotherham which isn’t far from Barnsley and I work in Sheffield where some of this story is set.

Anyway, I digress. What I want to say is that The Perfectly Imperfectly Woman was by far my favourite of Milly’s Books. I love her rom-com style and this book had that, but it was also an unputdownable mystery as well!

Marnie Salt has her dream job as head of Marketing for a beverage company, she fully intends to rise to the top of the company and be CEO one day, because why shouldn’t a woman be able to do that?? Marnie’s had a pretty tough life with an unpleasant family, disastrous love affairs and failed friendships, what she really needs is a break and someone to lean on and be there for her. That’s when she meets Lilian, a lovely old lady, on a cheesecake forum and finds her life changing dramatically.

When a crisis strikes and Marnie needs to escape from home and Work, Lilian offers a refuge in Little Raspberrys a cottage in the village that Lilian owns; Wychwell. Seemingly the perfect quiet getaway, Marnie soon discovers that there is more to Village life than meets the eye, and many secrets buried behind the peaceful, quaint facade.

When I say this book was gripping, it feels weird because although I absolutely love Milly’s Books and this isn’t a criticism, the stories are definitely usually more in the romantic comedy genre, this has that element but the mysteries unfolding in Wychwell are just too good, I found myself desperate to pick it up constantly making work today a real struggle! Milly’s oldest fans and newbies alike are going to adore The Perfectly Imperfect Woman and I urge you to read it!

Also, Milly? Please write the Country Manors Books! Hehe
