Book Description

A delightful and heart-warming romance from the bestselling author of DON'T WANT TO MISS A THING and THE UNPREDICTABLE CONSEQUENCES OF LOVE.



When Nancy realises that the jewellery her husband's being buying is NOT for her, it's time to decamp - to her friend Carmen's luxury London flat. Soon Nancy's met gorgeous Connor O'Shea, who lives next door, and his daughter Mia is matchmaking - not least because she'd like to see the back of Connor's current pushy girlfriend. While widowed Carmen feels a spark when a handsome charity worker called Joe calls round. But Joe's not quite all he seems...



And if you love THE ONE YOU REALLY WANT, look out for Jill Mansell's fabulous new novel for 2015 - THREE AMAZING THINGS ABOUT YOU.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful surprise 23 Aug. 2007
Format:Paperback
I ummmmmed and aaaaahed over buying this book for ages, lost count of the number of times I picked it up and put it down, eventually decided to buy it and then stuck it on the book shelf where it has been overlooked numerous times for something else. As I'm going on holiday this weekend and need a book to take a long I thought I would read a few pages of it to see if I liked it, well I cant put it down. I love it! I love all the characters already. Haven't even finished the book yet and I'm writing this review. I was under the impression that this book was aimed at readers older than me, not sure where I got that from, but I was wrong. I love the writing style; it's so light and enjoyable. I am going out tonight to purchase another Jill Mansell book to take on holiday, as think I will have finished this one by then!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read! 21 Aug. 2005
By Atheana
Format:Paperback
As another reviewer said, if you're already a Jill Mansell fan, then The One You Really Want won't disappoint. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because at times I found the book a bit confusing in that the writing style jumps from scene to scene with different characters at different stages in their lives. I had to keep reminding myself who was who! But that aside, it's a good read and JM fans will not be disappointed. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Chuckle! 29 Aug. 2007
Format:Paperback
This is a good holiday / chick lit read! Its a good book worthy of four stars, not quite five. It's easy to read and good fun. Am really starting to get into Jill Mansell books and would recommend it is an easy "escape" kind of a book. The last page had me chuckling for quite a while!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Read 12 Jun. 2006
By Ellie
Format:Paperback
Another fantastic read from Jill Mansell, her 16th book - The One You Really Want - is a real treat to read from start to finish. If you love one of her books, you will love them all. With fantastic, charming characters that you grow to love, and true to life situations, you won't be able to put the book down.

Main character Nancy is surprised and confused when she discovers her Christmas present - a sit on lawn mower - from her husband, especially as she found the receipt for some expensive jewellery in the post! The book is full of surprises and fun as you read about her struggles to get life back to normal. With two smaller stories running alongside Nancy's you can't fail to enjoy it! It is a fabulous girly, light read. So if you like a romantic but humorous read that will keep you wanting more, this is definitely the one for you!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining 7 Nov. 2014
By Aletheuon TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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 [2004] 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.

I don't understand the five star reviews for this book! There was no emotional depth to any of the characters, the writing was "tell" rather than "show" and the story/plot boring. In the end I found myself skipping pages to see if it was worth hanging in there and soon discovered it just wasn't worth my time. I do think the author is able to write ironic/comic one-liners, but to me the story read as if a teenager had written it. It didn't help that one of the male leads was named after the UK's leading heart burn and indigestion tablet. Perhaps the irony of the author's written word was a subliminal message - that after reading this substandard work you needed a dose.
