The Unpredictable Consequences of Love by Jill Mansell

Lovereading view...

A charming and eventful tale of a diverse collection of folk coming together in a coastal town in Cornwall. Ranging from Dot, divorced for fifty years, to Sophie, the girl her grandson falls for, this straddles the generations as the love complications of the various characters are presented to us in such a way that we do actually care. The lovely thing about Jill Mansell is that she started out writing slick chick-lit and has grown with her readers. Her tales are now warm, thoughtful and mature.

If you like Jill Mansell you might also like to read books by Fiona Walker, Cathy Kelly and Chris Manby.


The Unpredictable Consequences of Love by Jill Mansell

The delicious new romantic novel from the Sunday Times No. 1 bestseller. When Josh Strachan, newly returned to his home in north Cornwall from sunny California, first meets Sophie Wells, he's immediately smitten. Sophie's pretty, she's funny, she has lots of friends and she clearly loves her job as a photographer, despite the sometimes tricky clients. There's just one problem: Sophie has very firmly turned her back on love. It's nothing personal, she tells Josh, but she just doesn't do dates. And no one - even Sophie's scatty best friend Tula - will tell him why. Josh is sure Sophie likes him, though, and he's just got to find out what's put her off romance. And then put things right...

About the Author

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 Tweeting and marvelling at how many other writers have blogs. Only when she's completely run out of displacement activities does she actually write.

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.
