I've been a big Jill Mansell fan for the last two years or so. Walked into a bookstore without knowing what I wanted and bought "Rumour Has It" on impulse. Gulped it down in a day ... been a fan ever since.
She writes about women in small town settings and there are usually a couple different love stories in play. She always makes someone who should be a villain into a real person who you end up liking in the end. And it's always a fun read. Always.
Right now I'm reading "Staying at Daisy's" ... it's an older one that I hadn't read before and downloaded it last week since I was going to be on a plane. Hoped to do some work on that flight, but mostly read the book. :)
I know chick lit is supposed to be dead ... but I'm dragging it around like the corpse on Weekend at Bernie's ... not sure I'll ever give it up!!
