Product description

Product Description

Milly Johnson writes warm, funny and poignant novels about the universal issues of friendship, family, relationships, good food and that little bit of magic in life that sometimes visits the unsuspecting. A perennial Sunday Times top ten bestseller, every read guarantees love and laughter!

When Lewis Harley has a health scare in his early forties, he takes it as a wake-up call. So he and his  wife Charlotte leave behind life in the fast lane and Lewis opens the antique shop he has dreamed of. Bonnie Brookland was brought up in the antiques trade and now works for the man who bought out her father’s business, but she isn’t happy there. So when she walks into Lew’s shop, she knows this is the place for her.

As Bonnie and Lew start to work together, they soon realise that there is more to their relationship than either thought. But Bonnie is trapped in an unhappy marriage, and Lew and Charlotte have more problems than they care to admit. Each has secrets in their past which are about to be uncovered. Can they find the happiness they both deserve?

'A glorious, heartfelt novel'

Once again Milly Johnson has delivered a great read! Milly is my favourite author and this new book has not disappointed.
I love Milly's writing style - she quickly makes me feel that I have just met a new set of friends every time I read her books, and I especially love that there are many old friends that reappear in her books.
I highly recommend any of Milly's books! The last one I have read is always my favourite ... until the next one comes around!

Bonnie is trapped in an unhappy marriage. Stephen is possessive, lazy and uncaring. Bonnie is only there to do chores for him and they sleep in separate bedrooms. Stephen keeps telling her he knows what's best and Bonnie needs to follow his instructions. She's done with it though and no matter what the consequences will be, she's planning on choosing happiness this time. She's working in an antiques shop and when her boss tries to rob an old lady she prevents it and loses her position. Fortunately a new business has just opened and the owner, Lew, is looking for a capable assistant. Will working for him bring Bonnie some joy and color in her empty life?

Lew almost died and it made him realize he needed to make some changes in his life. He quit his job in London and opened an antiques shop instead. Lew is well-off, but his wife Charlotte spends the money a lot faster than he can earn it. Lew always assumed his marriage was happy and he was content with his life at home, but now that he's working together with Bonnie there are certain questions he starts asking himself. Is there a chance Lew and Bonnie find happiness together or are their problems so big they can't find their way out of them?

The Queen of Wishful Thinking is one of the most wonderful romantic stories I've read in a very long time. Bonnie is a sweetheart and despite being married to a cheap killjoy she has a lively spirit and brings cheerfulness wherever she goes. Lew is a kindhearted and gentle man. He's a good friend, he does everything he can to make the people he loves as happy as possible and he's attentive and caring. Bonnie and Lew have a lot in common and I liked how amazing their personalities are. Reading about them put a big smile on my face.
