Product Description

Product Description

After a bruising divorce, headstrong Juliet Miller invests in a flat and advertises for a flatmate, little believing that in her late thirties she'll find anyone suitable. But along comes self-employed copywriter Hattie, raw from her own relationship split, and the two woman hit it off. When Juliet's twin brother Guy meets Hattie, he is overcome with a massive crush. But being a shy, gentle giant, he communicates so clumsily with her as to give her the opposite impression.
Guy's best friend Steve has always had a secret, unrequited crush on Juliet. After a night of too much wine, Steve and Juliet end up in bed, after moaning about the lack of sex in their lives. Convinced that Juliet doesn't feel the same way, Steve agrees to a 'just-sex' relationship, until they can both find other partners.
Just when Guy has finally plucked up the courage to tell Hattie how he feels, she embarks on an internet relationship - which seems to tick all the boxes. Meanwhile she is growing closer to Guy's family. Reeling from her divorce, and a series of devastating miscarriages, Hattie has never had much love in her life and is obviously thirsty for affection. She loves the whole Miller family, from Juliet and Guy's warm, loving parents, to their ancient one-eyed black cat. But can Guy turn Hattie's affection for his family into something more - into love for him? And then Juliet makes a discovery, which will turn the lives of all four friends upside-down . . .

About the Author

Five-foot-tall Milly Johnson is a half Barnsley, half Glaswegian writer of greetings cards, novels and shopping lists featuring gin and buns. When not writing she is either reading, learning Italian, mixing with the Yorkshire glitterati, getting up the council's nose about a Dodworth Road Pedestrian Crossing or ironing school clothes. She lives with her two boys and a quartet of mad animals near her Mam and Dad in the middle of Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

More About the Author

Milly Johnson was born, raised and still lives in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. As well as being an author of 10 published novels, a book of short stories and a novella, she is also a copywriter for the greetings card industry, a joke-writer, a columnist, after dinner speaker, poet and a sometimes BBC radio presenter.

She wrote her first book 'Judith in the Land of Buns, Biscuits and Cakes' whilst still at school - an opus that remains tragically unpublished. It was only when a ex-boss called Barnsley 'A Joke Town' that she resolved to write a book about Barnsley folk and to show that the town is actually quite a nice, friendly place to grow up and live in.

She writes about love, life, friendships, rather nice food and a little bit of the magic that sometimes crops up in real life.

When not writing, she is usually shouting at her two teenage sons to put things AWAY, watching Jeremy Kyle or being walked by her Eurasier dog Teddy, who also has a column in the local paper and gets paid more than she does.

Milly's website is www.millyjohnson.co.uk. She is on Twitter @millyjohnson and FB www.facebook.com/milly.johnson1

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a grower... 10 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I first started this book I was a bit unsure about the style of the writing and found it hard to get into. However I finished it within 24 hours of the purchase and I think it is longer than most romances! I really enjoyed it and sat here in my very pregnant state crying my eyes out a parts of it!

I don't like to give spoilers about books, so I will just say that it is a really enjoyable read, with several main characters and I would definitely read another Milly Johnson book now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Get a crush on this book! 28 Sep 2011
By Chloe S "Chick Lit Chloe" TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Instead of having one lead character, An Autumn Crush actually features 4 characters who are all equally important in the book. Juliet Miller is looking for a flat mate and comes across Floz Cherrydale, a greetings card writer who is recently out of her own relationship and the pair quickly decide they'd be perfect flatmates for each other. Juliet is a great character, quite outspoken and brash but has a heart of gold underneath that exterior. I recently liked her and found she was the perfect person to bring quiet Floz out of her shell. Floz was very shy and we don't get to know too much about her, she's a bit of a mystery at first but Johnson's great story-telling allows her story to unfold slowly and surely, explaining to the reader why she is the way she is and I was certainly surprised by some of the revelations.

The male characters were actually fantastic which makes a nice chance, as quite often in chick lit they're either the hero or the cruel swine that you're meant to hate. Guy is Juliet's twin brother, has a huge crush of Floz but is showing it in the worst ways possible which is actually quite funny for the most part! I really liked him though, again he has something in his past affecting his present and I thought he was a lovely character, although not quite as lovely as Steve! Steve is a wrestler/plasterer and a funny, lovely Northern bloke who is so obviously in love with Juliet, I don't know how she hasn't seen it for all this time! It was lovely though to see nice male characters in chick lit, nice people that you want it to work out for and not hate, or that act really stupidly. All of the characters felt really realistic, like normal people and I really liked them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun 24 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
I have loved all of Milly's books and picked this one up with great trepidation. I always have a book on the go and started reading this after finishing the first book in the Shardlake series by CJ Sansom. I don't know whether I found it hard to get going because the two books were so completely different (one a historical thriller and one a chick lit) but I started reading this book about 5 times before I finally got going. Once I did get going I really enjoyed it - I loved the quirky wrestling sideline and was pleased with the way the book panned out in the end. I have given it 4 stars as in my humble opinion it wasnt as good as 'Here come the girls' which is one of my alltime faves and is a definite 5 star recipient, but I did enjoy it - and it was exceptional value for money. I did love the fact that it was set in Autumn which is a highly under rated season - and I think I would like a Christmas book one year if poss please Milly?

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, love, loved it! 9 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I read Johnson's A Summer Fling over the summer and loved every page of it. Johnson's next book An Autumn Crush is no disappointment. I read it in one sitting, which is unusual these days with a book of this thickness. I was lucky to have a day to sit in the glorious sunshine in the garden and soak up every word. Johnson writes some of the best chick lit there is; she lures you in and then immerses you fully. You'll smile constantly (in fact, I think my cheeks ache from smiling too much) and I did shed a fear tears at the end.

This book is packed full of warm and energetic characters. Guy melted my heart - the perfect gentlemen. I often found myself holding my breath, waiting for something to happen and Johnson does make you wait. She builds up the anticipation perfectly, so that when things start to come together, they do so perfectly. And boy, is it worth waiting for. There are plenty of unexpected twists and turns along the way, but these will lead you to a seriously satisfying ending.

Perfect - get yourself a copy, and immerse yourself immediately!

5.0 out of 5 stars Goddessofblah - LAUGH OUT LOUD!!!!!! 4 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback
This is the type of book that manages to make you feel for your characters, laugh at them and believe them. Not any of the characters are the general "chic lit" variety and therefore believable.

Be prepared to laugh out loud until you cry. Its that type of book. For a light read, its everything that you want. It has enough depth to prevent it from being superficial, romance that will make you saw aaawwwwww, a strong dash of reality that prevents it from being gushy and cheesy, and a set of characters that you'll love.

The only thing that is negative is that some plot parts took ages to get to and others were to fast. But otherwise a good, mature and funny chic lit without the cliched nonsense.

Enjoy
