#BlogBlitz The Ticklemore Treasure Trove by Liz Davies

It's my turn on the Blogtour The Ticklemore Treasure Cove by Liz Davies.

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. Follow @lizdaviesauthor on Twitter, on Facebook

About the book
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?


I'm just going to start this review by saying what an utter piece of garbage Riley is. I'd like to say his character portrays a fictional character that doesn't often occur in real life, unfortunately this isn't the case. He is the epitome of the ex who wants to remain in complete control no longer how long you've been separated or divorced.

I really wanted to jump into the book and smack him right in the kisser. How dare he be a complete duplicitous ex and come back to take what is rightfully hers after taking everything from her in the first place. I commend Nell for creating an environment that gave her children the feeling they were both being heard and the ability to have a relationship with both parents, despite what a complete rat he is.
Nell has to navigate the ex, the fact he wants her store of treasures and a possible new friendship and love interest - what's not to like?

It's a lovely little escapism read, a domestic cosy read set in quaint Ticklemore. A story of second chances and new beginnings. About being able to leave the past behind, which doesn't mean forgetting, but it does mean forgiving oneself for choices and mistakes made.

Being able to move on after your life has disintegrated isn't easy, but Davies shows us how you can do that and create a little bit of a kerfuffle, and a good read too.
