When Nadia Kinsella meets Jay Tiernan, she’s tempted. Of course she is. Stranded together in a remote Cotswold pub, with a snowstorm raging outside—let’s face it, who would ever know? But Nadia’s already met The One. She and Laurie have been together for years—they’re practically childhood sweethearts, and she still gets goosebumps at the sight of him. Okay, maybe she doesn’t see that much of him these days, but that’s not Laurie’s fault. She can’t betray him. Besides, when you belong to a family like the Kinsellas—bewitchingly glamorous grandmother Miriam, feckless mother Leonie, stop-at-nothing sister Clare—well, someone has to exercise a bit of self-control, don’t they? I mean, you wouldn’t want to do something that you might later regret.
Another perfect summer read! Jill Mansell mixes family shenanigans, tough issues, difficult exes and a lovely romance to get Nadia Knows Best. Perfect pacing keeps the reader engaged throughout and a wonderful mix of both lovely and irritating characters abound. This was my first Mansell and she didn’t disappoint! Witty banter, family squabbles and of course an exploration of what love really is (from the 20-something Nadia and her grandmother Miriam) made this another great chick lit read.
