More About the Author

Jill Mansell lives with her partner and children in Bristol, and writes full time.
Actually that's not true; she watches TV, eats fruit gums, admires the rugby players training in the sports field behind her house, and spends hours on the internet Tweeting and marvelling at how many other writers have blogs. Only when she's completely run out of displacement activities does she actually write.

Jill Mansell consistently delivers charming, witty novels. Head Over Heels is no exception, a truly enjoyable read. The main story revolves around Jessie and Toby, and how their chance reunion, after 20 years, creates an emotional explosion that literally ripples throughout the village. Jessie and Toby were in love when they were young, an unexpected pregnancy pulling them apart. Toby believes the Jessie terminated the pregnancy and hated him so that she wanted nothing to do with him. Toby goes on to become an incredibly famous actor, married to a beautiful former actress, with two children - on the surface, a perfect family. (All is not what it seems, however.) Jessie goes on to successfully raise her son on her own, and despite her best efforts, never stops caring for Toby. She tells no one the truth about the father of her son, including Oliver, her son. 21 years later, Toby and his chaotic family move to the village where Jessie has settled, and mayhem breaks lose. The suspense isn't in whether or not Toby finds out that Oliver is his - he figures that out in the first 20 pages! The story is how this revelation - along with the reader's growing realization that both Toby and Jessie have never fallen out of love with each other - seems to cause a ripple effect that changes the lives of everyone in the village. Are there a lot of characters and "couples" in this book - yes, there are. It is a bit busy at times - but ultimately what Mansell does is provide various profiles of relationships and visions of what commitment to marriage/relationships mean. All of this is done with humor and wonderful dialog. Although this book is really about Jessie and Toby, my favorite "sub-story" was Lilie & Drew (Mr. Darcy!).Read more ›

What's one of the worst things that could happen to a girl lazing about the pool on holiday... Yes you guessed it... Finishing reading the last book you've brought with you.
Luckily for me though the hotel I was staying at had a 'swap your books library' and so while my husband snored on the sun lounger next to me, I went off in search of my next read.
I had not read any of Jill Mansell's books before but I picked out Head over Heels because the cover jumped out at me and after reading the back cover I decided to give it a whirl (after all it was free don't forget), and so it was only by chance / accident that I came to read it.
Within the first few pages I realised that this book would be a fanitastic read, what with the wonderful characters and brilliant descriptions I really was drawn into the story as if I was part of the village that the story focuses on. Jill Mansell has been extremely clever, you have all the usual characters that you'd expect to find in a village... Extraverts, nosy parkers, 'loose women' etc, etc and what with the romance, intrigue and occasional twists it really does make for a good read - Hence me looking on Amazon for other Jill Mansell books and taking the trouble to write this review, enjoy...

This is a good light-hearted read. Excellent for a holiday book. Great fun and not a lot of concentration required! Sorry intellectuals, this is just what most of us need to unwind from our day to day jobs.

I bought this book to take on holiday as I wanted something easy to read on the beach. This book didn't let me down! It was very light hearted and funny in places, with the only downside being it was a bit predictable, but when your on holiday you don't want 'War & Peace'.

I am a great admirer of Jill's books and there are a lot in my bookcase. However, I don't know what had ailed the author when she wrote HEAD OVER HEELS! It is not only an improbable story but the characters are 2 dimensional and the dialogue often ridiculous, not even fitting such improbable characters.
On the good side (earning a solitary star) was the typical engaging humour found in all Ms. mansell's books.
I am sorry to disparage an author whose huge output is so very good, but there has to be an exception.

By Janie U TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 July 2008
Format: Paperback
I liked the characters in this book. Everyone speaks in a very straightforward way and there is no use of the usual complicated web of lies used as part of the plot as with lots of other similar books (with a few obvious exceptions which I think work very well such as Bernadette).
There is lots going on which leads to a fast paced enjoyable saga about the comings and goings in the village.
This book seems to feel completely plausible and ridiculously unlikely, at the same time.
I have read other Jill Mansell books but I think this is my favourite.

Before getting my Kindle white, I read all Jill Mansell books in paperbacks. Now I am reading them again on my Kindle. Her books are great for easy reading, such as on holiday, great escapism, I love her characters some of them I would love to be like. Suitable for all ages.
