Take a Chance on Me by Jill Mansell
A sweet and funny novel from the Sunday Times No. 1 bestsellerCleo Quinn doesn't have a great track record when it comes to men, but now Will's come along she's optimistic. Handsome, attentive and an absolute gentleman when it comes to her questionable cooking skills, he could be her Mr Right. Things are definitely looking up for Cleo...apart from one small problem with a rather large ego. Johnny LaVenture, sculptor extraordinaire and her childhood adversary, is back in Channing's Hill and tormenting Cleo as if he'd never been away. But life never goes to plan, does it? Johnny isn't the only one stirring up trouble and, for Cleo's family and friends, all kinds of sparks are starting to fly. If you think you can put the past behind you, think again...
'Although our shelves are groaning with chick-lit, Jill Mansell is in a different league. And you'll fall in love with the characters in this lovely tale'
'This is a warm, witty and romantic read that you won't be able to put down'
'The perfect pick-me-up. Utter indulgence'
