Publisher's Summary

Sophie Wells is a successful photographer with a focus on putting the past firmly behind her. When Josh Strachan returns to the seaside town of Cornwall from the States to run his family's hotel, he can't understand why the fun, sexy girl has zero interest in letting him--or any man, for that matter--into her life. He also can't understand how he's been duped into employing Sophie's impulsive friend, Tula, whose crush on him is decidedly unrequited.

Both girls remain mum about the reasons behind Sophie's indifference to love. But that doesn't mean Josh is going to quit trying.

Loved the story, not the narrator

I've read, or listened to, all of Jill Mansell's books and I really like her style of writing. Although predictable at times, she delivers a good quality British chick-lit story & never disappoints.

I've never heard a narrator of Mansell's books that I didn't like - until now. This narrator's voice droned on in a very boring fashion, and some of her voices for the characters were not good at all. At one point a male & female couple both had some bizarre Irish-sounding accent that made it hard to tell one from the other (although it hadn't started out that way). She did, however, capture the American accent very well (something that doesn't always happen). I won't purchase any other audiobook with this narrator because instead of drawing you into the story, her voice was very distracting.

Enjoyable stories.

I enjoyed reading about the various characters. I liked the happy romantic endings. There were no detailed sex scenes other than one referred to but nothing shown.

AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
I’d prefer a different narrator. Beverly Crick used a cockney and/or Irish accent for some characters. It bothered me. I love some British accents, but not these.

BOOK TITLE:
This book was published with different titles: The “Unexpected” Consequences of Love and The “Unpredictable” Consequences of Love.

DATA:
Narrative mode: 3rd person. Story length: 352 pages. Swearing language: none. Sexual content: none. Setting: current day Cornwall area, U.K. Book copyright: 2014. Genre: contemporary romance.

not my favorite

this was not my favorite Jill Mansell book. I usually can't wait to finish her books but this one took me 2 months to finish. wasn't into it.
