Love is always just around the corner in a Jill Mansell novel - with a few surprises and a lot of humour on the way to happiness Jessie has kept the identity of her son Oliver's father a secret for years. She's stunned when she discovers that the man in question, actor Toby Gillespie, has just moved in next door. The truth's about to come out. One glance at Oliver, and a little mental arithmetic, and Toby has the situation sussed. Meeting the son he never knew he had is the shock of a lifetime. It's a shock, too, for Toby's wife, the beautiful Deborah, though she seems to take it in her stride. Would Deborah be so relaxed if she knew just how close Toby wants to get to the mother of his firstborn? As the attraction between them flares up again, Jessie just can't see her way to a happy ending. But no one is quite what they seem, and there are more surprises to come...… (més)

I had two books last week from publishers that were at polar opposite ends of the spectrum of "gendered" literature. They both sucked.

First Blood is the novel that the movie Rambo was based and is total dick lit. Basically, a war vet with PTSD meets a cop with control issues and they spend the rest of the book trying to kill each other for no adequately explored reason. Head Over Heels on the other hand is quintessential chick lit: fluffy romance with no real conflict, just misunderstanding and miscommunication, but then everybody talks and lives happily ever after. Neither book was badly written, both had consistent pacing and both are reprints which were originally published decades ago. And my hatred for both of them is mostly predicated on lack of balance. There is hardly any conversation in First Blood (entire chapters pass with nobody taking to another human being!) and the majority of the characters only exist to be killed off (I was disoriented by how high the body count was). Head over Heels is all talk and no action and by the end of it I was really wishing somebody would be killed (or, even better, several people), because there are far too many characters who only exist to be a romantic interest.

In a perfect world, Rambo and Sheriff Teasdale are magically transported to Upper Sibley and blow the place to smithereens. Everybody dies, except for Teasdale and Jessie (the main protagonist from Head Over Heels whose relationship with her long-lost love was so inane I nearly puked) who fall in love and build a perfect literary world where people occasionally get killed but everybody talks about it first.

Thank you to Sourcebooks who sent me a copy of this book for review. ( )

This book was okay. My biggest complaint is that there are too many characters with their own storylines. Way too much going on in this book. The author would have done better to develop the main characters a little more instead of adding so much detritus to the story. ( )

Cute beach reading. But got predictable. Some issues were quite ahead of its time including transgender and other lgbtq dilemmas. This was published 20 years ago but reads like today. ( )

This had everything. Laughter tears, drama. It was an excellent read, which I enjoyed immensely. ( )

I read Ms. Mansell for the lighthearted way she tells a story. But this one was too full of people who didn't value marriage or fidelity and that got in the way of my enjoyment. ( )
