It’s Raining Men by Milly Johnson

It's Raining Men

Publisher: Simon & Schuster UK

From Amazon:

A summer getaway to
remember. But is a holiday romance on the cards…? Best friends from work May,
Lara and Clare are desperate for some time away. They have each had a rough
time of it lately and need some serious R & R. So they set off to a
luxurious spa for ten glorious days, but when they arrive at their destination,
it seems it is not the place they thought it was. In fact, they appear to have
come to entirely the wrong village… Here in Ren Dullem nothing is quite what it
seems; the lovely cobbled streets and picturesque cottages hide a secret that
the villagers have been keeping hidden for years. Why is everyone so unfriendly
and suspicious? Why does the landlord of their holiday rental seem so rude? And
why are there so few women in the village? Despite the strange atmosphere, the
three friends are determined to make the best of it and have a holiday to
remember. But will this be the break they all need? Or will the odd little
village with all its secrets bring them all to breaking point…?

My thoughts:

Milly Johnson is one of my favourite authors and once again she has produced a fabulous read. The writing is witty without being overdone – sometimes when an author tries too hard to be funny, it makes for an irritating read but there were many laugh out loud moments alongside those more serious and sensitively written ones. I loved the characters of the three friends, Lara, May and Clare and from the beginning I felt that they were people I would want to spend time with. There is just the right amount of mystery and romance in the story with a slight magical element that makes this a slightly different type of read to Milly’s previous books. I couldn’t put this one down. A highly recommended read.
