Nell Chapman has always assumed that one (or the other) of her twin sons would help run her antique shop once they finished university. The boys, however, have other plans, when they announce they’re going backpacking for a year, leaving Nell feeling bereft and lonely.
Not only that, but with their father (her lying, cheating ex-husband) back on the scene and demanding half of the business, there might not be anything left for her boys to help manage when they return.
However, she hasn’t counted on the unexpected support of local landscape artist, Silas Long. And neither has she considered the possibility she might fall in love again – especially since Silas is so distant and moody, and has his own cross to bear.
Should Nell take a chance and risk her heart, or should she leave well alone? And why has Silas painted her portrait if he doesn’t feel anything for her?
A perfect romantic read for fans of Heidi Swain and Sarah Morgan
I absolutely loved returning to Ticklemore, and this time we find ourselves in the Ticklemore Treasure Trove – and antique shop run by Nell. This is the third instalment in this delightful series, however it can easily be read as a standalone novel too.
Nell’s life is about to change drastically, and for reasons that are out of her control. After her divorce Nell’s focus has been solely on raising her two sons, alongside building up the antique business which she loves. However, Nell suddenly finds herself with an empty home, and facing troubles regarding her beloved shop.
Silas is clearly hiding something, and that is having a major impact on the way he is living his life at present. As he begins spending more time with Nell, he slowly begins to lower the walls that he has built up around himself, and I don’t mean in just a romantic sense either!.
Hattie makes a return in this book too, this time with a new mission in her head, and as we know from previous books, she is a very difficult woman to refuse!. She has come to the decision that everyone in Ticklemore needs an apprentice now, something both Nell and Silas are far from keen about. Hattie has also come to the decision that Nell and Silas would make a perfect couple, but only time will tell if that thought plays out.
This was such a fun, light hearted read that allowed me to escape from the realities of life for a little while. Nell is a character that you warm to instantly. She has faced some rather difficult times over the years, and with her less than appealing ex-husband trying to take away from the business she built up herself, she certainly has a lot going on in her life at present too. Silas is a much more reserved character who takes a little longer to get a grasp of, but when you learn more about his past, you find yourself loving him too.
The storyline flows beautifully and features an array of colourful characters, some that you are sure to recognise if you have read the previous books within this series!. Packed full of drama, and some laugh out loud moments along the way, this book was an absolute delight to read.

About the Author
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 can and travel the world in it.
