Gina's life couldn't be less brilliant. Her husband has just run off with his pregnant mistress. Of course she feels guilty when she accidentally knocks Izzy off her motorbike, but it's hardly the end of the world, is it? It's only a broken leg.
But Gina's world is about to be turned upside down. Izzy and her daughter, Kat, have been catapulted into her previously ordered life. Worse still, Izzy has got her flirtatious eye on Gina's oldest best friend...

"Classy chick-lit that appeals to women of all ages." (Daily Express)
I like Jill Mansell's novels since discovering her in a bookstore in Ireland. This book although not one of her best it is a good one with just enough quirky characters and sub plots to flesh out the story line and keep it above the fray of a predictable or typical romance.
Like it and it was a great listen the narrator does a wonderful job . It is a fun listen. I would recommend it to those wanting something light.
You can't lose with Jill Mansell. This was a fun read with many twists and turns with all kinds of relationships. Rags to riches - Kind of.
"Good book - not so great audio"
I have read a few Jill Mansell books and I enjoy her writing - I loved Two's Company. I was looking forward to listening to one of her books in audio format for the first time and whilst I enjoyed the story line, I didn't think that the narrator's voice matched the image I had of the main character, Izzy. I kept forgetting that Izzy was supposed to be a gorgeous late-thirty-something (if I remember correctly) so it surprised me sometimes that she had so much attention from male admirers.
I think I would have enjoyed this book more had I read it myself but then that's not exactly practical when you are driving :)
