Thank you to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to participate in celebrating the publication day of The Ticklemore Tavern, the latest addition to Liz Davies’s charming Ticklemore series.
The Ticklemore Tavern
Violet makes her own gin.
Logan Cassidy sells it in his pub, The Ticklemore Tavern.
It should have been a match made in heaven, especially since the pair of them fancy the socks off each other, and they are both young, free and single.
Logan’s mum, Marie, doesn’t think Violet is good enough for her son. No woman is, or ever will be. And when she becomes ill, Logan is torn between looking after his mum or following his heart.
However, neither Logan, nor Marie, has taken the sheer force of nature that is Violet into account. What Violet wants, Violet gets.
But maybe not this time, eh?
It wasovely tocomeback to one ofmy favourite fictional villages, see the familiar faces and catch up with what’s been going on in their lives, and, of course, see a new couple find their happily-ever-after.
This time it’s the turn of everyone’s favourite publican Logan who’s been focusing on running his business and taking care of his rather controlling mum Marie for too long. Logan’s father walked out from their lives when Logan was just five and Marie did a great job ofraising Logan on her own. But now he is 33 and enjoys having his own space and making his own decisions, so why isMariefinding it so hard to let him find a girlafter his own heart?
Meet Violet Archer- a successful gin distiller with lovely, vivacious personality. She is trying to expand her customer base by offering her product samples to local pub managers. When she meets Logan there is a definite spark and both of them are single and unattached. Seems like fates are smiling at her…If only his mother didn’tdislike her quite as much from the word go…If I were Violet, I would have run for the hills, but to Violet’s credit she isn’t easily intimidated and happens to think that Logan is worth fighting for.
I love Liz Davies’s easy, engaging writing style and her lovely sense of humour. Once again,she has created interesting protagonists with great personalities, as well as introducing new secondary characters in addition to the recurring cast. You’ve got to admire everyone’s favourite octogenarian couple- Hattie and Alfred. Hattie doesn’t mince her words and sees through Marie’s tricks straightaway.
Ticklemore is a fabulous community and it’s always a pleasure to see how much its inhabitants care for each other’s well-being and happiness. Can’t wait to read the next story in this lovely series!
Author Bio –
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 van and travel the world in it.
