Anyways, I always find it annoying when I can't find a synopsis of the book on Amazon, so here's what it says on the backcover:
When Millie Brady saves Orla Hart's life she doesn't realise how dreastically it will change her own - not least because the boyfriend who is asking her to move in with him at the time promptly storms off in a huff.
Actually, Millie's relieved. She's quite happy to enjoy a restfull man-free summer in Cornwall. But bestselling novelist Orla has other ideas. She's determined - for her own reasons - that Millie should meet the man of her dreams.
Dropped wallets, roller-skating gorillagrams, the world's most flirtatious boss and a helicopter in the back garden all conspire to produce a summer neither Millie - nor Orla - will ever forget.
With a great cast of characters and Jill Mansell's quirky humour, this book is a great read.
I normally don't like books with too many characters because it can get too confusing, but Mansell brings them all to life beautifully. Her humor is pretty on point too.
Pick this book up for a fun, light, beach read. I'll definitely be checking out her other books.
The writing is fresh and clever. Millie is sweet, funny and the kind of girl I'd like for my best chum. Her romantic troubles are the kind I can relate to and the plot was believeable. The heroine wasn't drop dead gorgeous or fabulously wealthy...in fact, she works doing "Kissograms." The men -- surprisingly for this genre -- were real people. Even the "cad" turned out to be a good guy.
I highly recommend this for a way to kill a rainy weekend. Just make sure you start it earlier in the day than I did! LOL
Other good points about the book are the portrayal of some of the side characters Like Millie's parents & the various men that Millie interacts with. I liked the character of Lucas who would have some potential as a lead in another story. Some of the scenes showing Millie in her new job & her various dates were humorous.
On the more negative side, the main hero's character could have been fleshed out more. Two serious situations/topic was treated in a very off hand way. It could be because this is a British style book and they tend to have that stiff upper lip thing going for them. This book also had some very abrupt transitions from one scene to the other. One moment you're with one character & you're waiting to see what happens next & the next you're in a completely different unconnected scene. Most writers would separate these scenes by chapters.
If you're fan of a Bridget Jones style chick lit book, then you'll probably enjoy this book. If you're not a fan of the genre, then this book would probably not convert you.

I really enjoy Jill Maxwell's writing. It's light, creative and just plain fun. Her endings are "happily ever after" predictable, but an enjoyable ride to get there!Published 11 months ago by Sandy
