Light-hearted chick-lit? Not my style at all! I have to admit that I downloaded this book because it was free and, at first, I read it with a certain amount of condescension before realising that I was actually... well, enjoying it. It is daffy, humorous and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny. Apart from Cyanide Sadie, everybody in it is eccentrically, heart-warmingly NICE, even Rennie the rock star who has never touched drugs and loves to watch old movies and eat takeaways, yet still has a rock-hard body and devastating good looks. The book is set among the glamorous and super-rich in London, but these are people who are not in love with themselves and who have their feet set firmly on the ground. Wealth has not spoiled them and they are looking for the same things as we lesser mortals - love, family, security, friendship. Thy do silly things, but not nasty things, and everything works out for them in the end.
Not too realistic, then, but a lot of fun!
I'd never read anything by Jill Mansell before, though I'd heard of her. She has a real talent for inventing interesting characters and making us love them and her writing style is easy to read, fast- moving and funny. This book is a few years old  and occasionally it shows in the references to now-defunct tv shows and the fact that the characters are still playing videos. This is minor, however. If your taste is for escapist romantic comedies, you'll enjoy this. Apparently, Jill Mansell is one of the twenty top-selling female authors of the 21st century, and I can well understand why.
