Jill Mansell

3 Reviews

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

The latest sunny, life-affirming novel from 'the queen of heartwarming love stories'!

A witty, heartwarming story of love, life and second chances set in the idyllic Cotswolds, from the glorious Jill Mansell.

'Jill Mansell is the queen of feelgood romance' Sunday Express
Lou is reeling from a triple whammy of shocks that have left her loveless, jobless and almost homeless. Staying for a night with an old friend in the Cotswold village of Foxwell, she lends a helping hand to a spectacularly ungrateful older man with a reputation in the village for being a 'character'. When Edgar makes a suggestion that would solve two out of three of Lou's problems in one fell swoop, it's hard to resist. Especially as the return to the village of the very attractive Remy - not that he's even noticed Lou! - makes it an unusually appealing place to live. But Edgar wants Lou to make a promise that could be very hard to keep. Is she willing to give her word, with all the potential consequences? Perhaps she can help Edgar find a way to be happy while she's there ...

But there are others who have an eye on Edgar. Lou will soon learn that it's not so easy to 'fix' people, especially when the past re-emerges into the present with hilarious - and unexpected - consequences . . .

Utterly escapist and completely life-affirming, Jill Mansell's novels will warm you on a wintry day!
