I love Milly's women, they are real women with flaws, hearts that break but are open to finding love again. They laugh at themselves, they're not perfect, far from it but best of all, they're real! And everyone gets what they deserve! Both the good and the bad. So enjoy her writing.

Move over Jane Green, Jill Mansell and Madeleine Wickham, there's a new queen in town! I absolutely LOVED this novel and think it deserves more than 5 stars! After reading it, I thought Milly Johnson could easily become my new favourite chick lit author and when I read another one of her books I awarded her this title and will read anything and everything she writes now. I absolutely LOVE finding fabulous new authors and can't wait to sink my teeth into the rest of her books and those she writes in the future.

Her characters are so well developed, her stories flow effortlessly and the tension ramps up and keeps you reading. I was hooked on this story immediately and could not put the book down and read it in 3 days. This book even had me clearing out clutter almost as soon as I had begun the reading it (and this is not something I'm very good at). My only complaint is that it kept me up late three nights in a row so I was half asleep while reading it and I was upset that it ended so quickly!

I can't wait to read more of her novels and my last complaint is that they take 1-2 months to order from Amazon Canada (but it is WELL worth the wait) and I'm glad I requested two of her books from a visiting friend, but I'm sure this will change as Milly Johnson gains international notoriety for her fantastic stories.

HASH(0xa25dcb28) out of 5 stars Love This Author's Books! Jan. 19 2012
By Pat - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A Spring Affair is the third book I've read by Milly Johnson and it confirmed that she'll stay on my "MUST READ" list of authors! It's hard to say exactly what draws me to her books, but I guess it's that she just puts together a great story with great characters. I truly wasn't able to put the book down once things got going.

There were aspects of the book that bothered me (e.g, for way too long, she goes along w/ some less than savory actions on the part of others in her life), but her story is so good that somehow I can overlook it. All in all, fantastic plot, interesting looks at friendships between women, and something I love in a book -- wonderful, but realistic transformation of the main character! I was thoroughly transported and am so sad not to have more to read.

If you're into books of this genre, I would highly recommend this one!

HASH(0xa25dcd74) out of 5 stars Pleasantly surpised by new author (for me at least) June 21 2010

First time I read Milly Johnson and I will look for more because I really liked the story. The characters are real and likable, the main character is a real woman in her thirties not particularly beautiful or thin ( I can identify with that) and the love story is believable. Recommend it to anyone. Good book.
HASH(0xa25dcd38) out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable Sept. 4 2015

Format: Paperback
A tale of a woman subjected to the 'head games' of her husband doesn't sound like the usual fayre for a chick-lit novel, but Milly Johnson managed to jeep me interested, and rooting for the main character, right to the end. Very well-written, humerous and engaging.

HASH(0xa25de24c) out of 5 stars Milly Johnson ROCKS Aug. 23 2013
By A Funny Girl - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have now read all of the currently published Milly Johnson novels. Not one has disappointed me. This particular book we meet Lou, a 35 year old married woman who seems more like a fifty year old when we meet her. She is married to Phil, who is your typical jerk husband. Three years ago Phil was caught having an affair and moved out for a brief period. When he comes back, Lou welcomes him with open arms and never questions him about the incident again. While at a doctor's office in present time she comes across an article about "clearing out your clutter" and how it will make you feel lighter. Lou sets out to clear ALL the clutter (lots of it!!!!) out of her life. By doing so she is unknowingly losing weight and regaining her self-esteem. She meets Tom Broom (the skip guy) and she starts questioning her life.

Throughout this book Lou not only clears the "material" clutter, but relationship and friendship clutters as well. The characters are instantly lovable and relateable. You will find yourself rooting for all of Milly JOhnson's heroines. PLEASE Buy this book!!! It's awesome, awesome.
HASH(0xa25de0e4) out of 5 stars Rewarding April 20 2013
By Joanna Gawn, Author of The Lazuli Portals - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the first of Milly Johnson's books that I've read, and it certainly won't be the last. As Lou's decluttering lightens her house, room by room, she starts to address the painful baggage and issues of her life.

Lou is a lovely blend of strength and vulnerability, and her shift from Lou Winter back to the feisty girl she used to be is a rewarding journey to witness.

It's a good job I'm not on a diet, though, because lovely food gets mentioned quite frequently!

Highly recommended.
