Millie’s Game Plan
When workaholic, Millie Carmichael, realizes life is passing her by with no sign of Mr Right on the horizon, she takes matters into her own hands.
Drawing up a wish-list, she starts her search for HIM at village cricket matches.
Camera in hand, she sets off to review the talent and soon discovers it’s not quite the afternoon picnic she imagined. Worse still, she unwittingly photographs criminals at work, which leads to a whole heap of trouble she hadn’t bargained for: locked in a church crypt!
‘Bridget Jones meets The Thornbirds.’

Sometimes you just have to take the bull by the horns and that is exactly what Millie does. She comes up with a way to find her own Mr. Right. The Plan… pose as a photographer, go to local cricket matches, take pictures of the good looking men, weed out the unavailable and go from there. It sounds simple. Well nothing is ever simple when it comes to true love. Two Mr. Wrongs don’t make a Mr. Right, does it?
Author Rosie Dean’s debut book is a hit! The storyline is refreshing. It has just the right amount of comedy and drama.
Keep writing Rosie, you’ve got what it takes!

All the characters in this perfectly executed novel are rounded and true to life, without being clichéd. Each chapter has been carefully crafted with a twisting and turning plot, which leaves you rooting for Millie and hoping that she picks the right man. So follow Millie’s hilarious exploits and the ups and down of her love life and home life as she struggles to get her game plan right. You’ll be glad you did – I was!
I grew up in England, and knew the author at school (slightly – we moved in different social and academic circles – she was arts and I was sciences). I found the descriptions of village life just outside the London commuter belt to ring true, and most of the characters well crafted, probably due to her background in the theater. Josh was particularly well written (I would like to meet him and sit down for tea) – Lex and Sasha less so. After being away from the UK for over 30 years I found some of the English terms impenetrable, American readers may find it harder to read, or might just find it “cute”.
I could very easily see this adapted into a 3 part play, or even into one of those English romantic comedies, rather like “Notting Hill” or “Bridget Jones Diary” but without those jarring parts for American stars. I didn’t think from the title or synopsis that I was in the target demographic, but like those other Brit Rom-Coms mainly aimed at women and their dates I found myself pulled in and enjoyed the ride. 5 stars!
Josh, the most heart-stoppingly gorgeous man she finds, doesn’t quite reach her standards but luckily sexy Lex does…and he can’t seem to wait to show her a good time. It must be love. But then, why can’t she get Josh out of her mind?
Millie’s quest for love takes her into glamourous, dangerous, and sometimes downright bizarre situations…and will it all be worth it in the end?
Loved it, loved it, loved it. And I defy any reader not to fall for strong but vulnerable Millie (…what do you mean she’s fictional???). Go on, give her a try!
