Unputdownable! Glued to my hands!
Jill Mansell is my absolute favourite author. She weaves this amazing tale that funny, serious and lovable! You come to love all the characters in her books, even the ones who in the end aren’t the most perfect.
Poppy meets her soul mate on her hen night, and the next day its her wedding. She finds out her father isn’t her father and that love can be found in the strangest of situations. So, she goes to London. Moves in with complete strangers, who in a years time, become her best friends and something more ;), and attempts to find her father and Tom (soul mate).
In this novel Jill shows us, or maybe it just seemed that way to me, that you might think someone is perfect for you but in reality they might just be the worst thing that could possibly happen to you. Then the most cliched saying, the thing you want the most is at time right in front of you.
Tom was a lovable character, even if we didn’t see him till the end, then he became throw-him-away-and-snog-Casper-character. Now Casper was just perfect from the beginning. He was attracted to Poppy from the start but let his feelings slide so that she could be with Tom. (spoiler)
Claudia was getting on my nerves, with the way she acted, but Jill Mansell weaved her in such a way that you couldn’t help but feel sorry for her and hated her at the same time.
So, there you have it. My review. Be sure to grab a copy for yourself because it was the perfect read that you need to relax, and for me to get over my reader’s block.
