Book Review: It's Raining Men by Milly Johnson

Title: It's Raining Men
Author: Milly Johnson
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Publication Date: 1st August 2013

Best friends May, Lara and Clare are desperate for a holiday. They have been dreaming of a little cottage in the middle of nowhere, long walks in the country and just a bit of time away from it all. But when they arrive in Ren Dullem, a small Yorkshire seaside town, it seems it is not the place they thought it was... May can't wait to get away from men after being cruelly deceived. Then in Dullem she falls hook line and sinker at first glance for one of the inhabitants - but he's already taken...

Lara is living with James and his awful step-children who taunt her with tales of his younger, prettier ex whom they adored - the woman who Lara walks in to find James in bed with despite all his protestations that he wouldn't touch her again with a barge pole. Reeling from the hurt, she needs the sea air of Dullem to heal her. What she doesn't need is to be constantly in battle with the owner of the holiday cottage - a man who is every bit as bitter and resentful and untrusting of the other sex as she is.

Clare's kind, steady boyfriend Lud wants her to go and live abroad with him for two years, but she's just been offered the promotion of a lifetime. It gives her the excuse she needs to end the relationship and find some single excitement which happens to turn up in the form of a very bad boy who is everything Lud isn't - impulsive, wild and dangerous.

Will this holiday be the break they all need? Or will the odd little town with all its secrets bring them all to breaking point...?

Firstly I have got to say that Milly Johnson is a fantastic author who has written some amazing reads she never fails to make her readers laugh, smile and even cry with her books but best of all her readers hate to finish the last page knowing that they need more of a Milly Johnson book fix as soon as.

I have a huge thank you to say for Alice Murphy at Simon & Schuster for sending me a copy. I was highly excited when I found out Milly was bringing a new book out, The title of the book is superb, I just keep visioning lots of Gerrard Butlers falling in the sky haha!

So we meet May, Lara and Clare Best of friends who work for the same company but are in desperate needs of a holiday as they never get a lot of time to see each other and catch up, so Lara decides to book them into a luxury hotel with a spa but when wires get crossed when booking and they end up in Ren Dullem instead of Wellum, Everything doesn't seem right to the girls, hardly any women in the village just lots of very strange...!

What a fantastic read this was! I was pretty much hooked from the beginning, I loved reading about the three main characters May, Lara & Clare they were all going through similar things in life but was keeping it away from each other, which is not what friends should do. The characters are very much easily able to loveable and friendly, It was nice to see how each of their lives easily changed once they had stayed in Ren Dullem.

The story had plenty of romance and was very heart-warming.  Ren Dullem seemed to be such a mysterious little village with always plenty of goings on to try and ruin the girls holiday especially with miss busy body Daisy.

For huge fans of Milly Johnson's book then they are going to love this book! It is a must read for sure.
I loved it and so will you! A Deserved 5 out of 5 stars from me!
