Solo

Jill Mansell's books have been reliable, comfort read for me for years, so I’ve been delighted that many of her older, hard to find books are being released as e-books. Sadly, however, Solo – originally a 1991 release – didn’t work for me. While I liked parts here and there, overall I despis ...

You and Me, Always features numerous characters and multiple romances, and I initially had more trouble than usual getting into the story.

Miranda's Big Mistake

I've enjoyed some of Jill Mansell's recent chick lit, so was eager to review Miranda’s Big Mistake. Unfortunately, it turns out that this is a re-release of a 1999 book and, while I didn't hate it, a few aspects turned me off so that I'm just not able to recommend it. The book fea ...
