Sheer Mischief | [Jill Mansell]

Sheer Mischief

It's not that Janey Sinclair isn't pleased to see her sister, she just wishes that she could have arrived in a less dramatic style. Being woken up at seven in the morning by Maxine, complete with borrowed wedding dress and police escort, isn't quite how she'd planned to start her Sunday. Still, life's never dull when Maxine's around, and Janey, who's rebuilding her life after her husband disappeared off the scene, is delighted that her sister's back in town.

Publisher's Summary

It's not that Janey Sinclair isn't pleased to see her sister, she just wishes that she could have arrived in a less dramatic style. Being woken up at seven in the morning by Maxine, complete with borrowed wedding dress and police escort, isn't quite how she'd planned to start her Sunday.

Still, life's never dull when Maxine's around, and Janey, who's rebuilding her life after her husband disappeared off the scene, is delighted that her sister's back in town. But when Maxine sets her sights on Guy Cassidy, the impossibly glamorous fashion photographer, Janey knows there's no limit to the mischief her sister will get up to in order to dispatch the competition.

    "Good Story - Wrong Narrator"
    What three words best describe Annie Aldington’s voice?

    Too old for the characters. She is a great narrator but it's strange listening to an older lady speak for the primary voices of the book which are in their 20s and 30s.

    "Love This Story"
    Where does Sheer Mischief rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I regret this story came to an end...If you are a Chick Lit Fan and love Jill Mansell's writing style you will love this book. Each character is touching.

    Annie Aldington does an excellent job!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Janey....without letting you be surprised she learns how valuable she truly is...Guy shows her why.


    What about Annie Aldington’s performance did you like?

    She didn't just read the story, she was apart of the story.


    If you could rename Sheer Mischief, what would you call it?

    Blessings in Disguise.

    Story
    "Loved it"
    What made the experience of listening to Sheer Mischief the most enjoyable?

    The story was a fun listen in typical Mansell style - episodic, and slowly moving towards a much hoped for conclusion. Not overly-predictable, lighthearted but with some deeper moments. Annie Aldington does a great job of bringing the characters to life, and manages to make you forget you are being read to.


    Any additional comments?

    Sheer Mischief is pure Jill Mansell gold. She always gets there in the end, with a few laughs along the way. I'd definitely recommend it.

    "Fun Read!"

    Jill Mansell likes to make you wait a bit in her books but it usually well worth it. Another winner. A light fun read. Not Richard, wife again.

    "Enjoyable, predictable Chick Lit"

    I enjoyed this book. It is predictable chick lit... from the first characters to the last and you know the ending almost within the first chapter. However it doesn?t matter, it?s entertaining, the characters are believable and the story is fun and edgy.
    I would say worth a listen and enjoyable.

    Story
    "Not What the title makes you expect."
    What did you like most about Sheer Mischief?

    The adults all lead separate lives but in the end they become entwined without you realising it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was both happy and sad but had you gripped all the way wondering which way each way the lives would turn.


    What about Annie Aldington’s performance did you like?

    Nothing she was just well balanced all the way through.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me shout at it at one point when I thought a character had made a huge mistake by taking a cheating husband back to give him a second chance when the listener knew he was going to do it again - and he did!!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the book - thought it was great.
