My Rating:

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.

My Thoughts

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.

About Jill Mansell

Jill Mansell lives with her partner and children in Bristol, and writes full time. Actually that’s not true; she watches TV, eats fruit gums, admires the rugby players training in the sports field behind her house, and spends hours on the internet marvelling at how many other writers have blogs. Only when she’s completely run out of displacement activities does she write.

Jill Mansell’s books have sold over ten million copies and her titles include: Making your Mind up, Fast Friends, Good at Games, Sheer Mischief and Solo, among many others.

  1. I haven’t read anything by this author either, but I’m a HUGE fan of witty banter, so I think I would like her voice. Sounds like a fun and all-around enjoyable read, thanks for the recommendation Melissa!
