Blurb: 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 Millrise has ever seen, Ellie’s mission gets its happy ending...

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.

*First of all I would like to thank the author for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

Review: I had heard so many ravishing comments about Tilly Tennant's work that I couldn't wait to read her books myself. After finishing The Man Who Can't Be Moved, I now understand all the comments. This book is one of those fresh feel-good stories that you can devour in a couple of sitting and end up with a huge grin on your face.

Ellie is the kind of heroine we all love. A little shinning star that tries to help everyone forgetting a bit about herself. I really liked her down-to-earth character and easy-going attitude. And her curiosity for everything made her a really good reporter, maybe too good, as her interest on her last story, the Man Who Can't Be Moved, made her get out of her comfort zone. The Man in question, Ben, also seemed like a great guy, a bit lost though. And from their very first interaction I could see the sparks flying between them. Actually, I would have liked to see more interactions between these two.

But this story is not only about romance. Tilly handles more serious topics too, Ellie's aunt is terminally-ill. I was positively surprised to see how beautifully handled was this part, with the perfect touch of sadness but hope too.

The Man Who Can't Be Moved is a cute story with lots of love, fun and laughs that any romance-lover will enjoy immensely.
