Publisher's Summary

Open House is a deliciously engaging romantic novel from Jill Mansell, author of over 20 Sunday Times best sellers including The One You Really Want and Miranda's Big Mistake. For fans of Sophie Kinsella and Marian Keyes.

Nell O'Driscoll has known Marcus Kilburton for years - according to her diary, she even had a crush on him as a teenager. When he decides to open Kilburton Castle to the public, Nell takes a job as his assistant - and soon sparks are flying between them. But is Nell free to pursue Marcus when a figure from her past refuses to let go?

Meanwhile, Nell's best friend, Hetty Brewster, has other problems. Her husband has abandoned her for a bitchy but successful writer. Now the press is full of stories about the frumpy, boring wife losing out to a younger, slimmer model. But Hetty's about to get her chance for sweet revenge - if she can stop being a nice person long enough to take it!

Slow start

Took a while to get into this one and initially didn’t like the voice of narrator but it slowly grew on me and I didn’t want to switch off

Enjoyable but ....

I did enjoy this story. Although very predictable as is most of Jill Mansell's stories, I found the narrator annoying. Her over pronunciation of certain words and names was grating at times.

A jolly good read!

very good read by Jill Mansell, well narrated

Loved it

This was a beautiful story. I think it'd make a great movie. Just the right amount of romance, drama and sadness.
