Fledgling journalist Ellie Newton is keen to prove herself when she lands a hard-won job at the Millrise Echo. So when reports come in of a man camped on the corner of a local street, refusing to move until the girl who has jilted him takes him back, Ellie is on a mission to get the scoop.
She arrives to meet Ben Kelly, a man she is instantly attracted to. But she has a job to do and an incredible story to write and has soon pledged to help him win back the girl of his dreams. With Ellie’s help, Ben’s plight captures the hearts and imaginations of the public. And when a TV film crew appears to make a feature on the most romantic gesture the town of
has ever seen,
Ellie’s mission gets its happy ending... Millrise
But while Ellie has been busy fixing the lives of her wayward parents, providing shoulders for heartbroken friends to cry on, and worrying about her terminally-ill aunt, she hasn’t noticed that she has also been falling quietly in love – with the very man she has now ensured is hopelessly out of her reach
Ellie must choose between doing the right thing, and the thing that feels right. And whatever choice she makes, someone will get their heart broken.
Poor Ellie Newton is being pulled in a million different directions. And we all know how that feels! She is desperately working her socks off working hard to make her name in journalism whilst at the same time trying to get her stubborn parents back together and help out with her aunt Hazel who is very ill. And then, along comes a story in the shape of Ben, to totally cause confusion in Ellie's heart!
I love my job as a book blogger and promoter because I get to read so many books! Now and again a book comes along that makes you lie in bed and refuse to get up until you have read the very last page. The Man Who Can't be Moved is one such book. I could not get enough of this book and every one of its wonderful host of characters. Its very rare that you find a book were you adore all the characters...........well except of course the horrible Gemma but its ok to hate her! Tilly Tennant has created such a wonderful story to totally capture the imagination of the reader. There are some wonderfully funny moments and a few sad ones in the book and I will admit to shedding the odd tear here and there. Plus, I think I not only fell in love with the main character Ben, but also with Jethro and Patrick. Who wouldn't want these adorable blokes in their life? Ellie is one lucky girl!
I totally loved the idea of a story based around the hit song by the Script. The idea of someone waiting on a street corner until the love of his life returns to him. How wonderful! I often read books and thing...........oh that should be made into a movie............The Man Who Can't be Moved has now been added to that list! I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Go out and buy it. Right now!

ABOUT TILLY TENNANT
Tilly Tennant was born in
Dorset, the oldest of four
children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. After years
of dismal and disastrous jobs, including paper plate stacking, shop girl,
newspaper promotions and waitressing (she never could carry a bowl of soup
without spilling a bit), she decided to indulge her passion for the written
word by embarking on a degree in English and creative writing, graduating in
2009 with first class honours. She wrote her first novel in 2007 during her
first summer break at university and has not stopped writing since. She also
works as a freelance fiction editor, and considers herself very lucky that this
enables her to read many wonderful books before the rest of the world gets
