This review is from: The Unpredictable Consequences of Love (Hardcover)
I've previously read and enjoyed Jill's other novels, and this one was no exception. I absolutely love the cover, the yellow is so beautiful and sunny and made me want to sit down and spend my time reading Jill's latest release.
In the beautiful town of St Carys, Sophie is determined to keep the past behind her, and she has no interest in letting any man into her life, something new arrival Josh can't understand. Josh has arrived in St Carys to run the family hotel, and he's also been duped into employing Sophie's friend Tula, who has an unrequited crush on him. With many different people living on St Carys, how many secrets can one seaside town keep?
Jill Mansell is such a talented storyteller, every time I sit down with one of her books I feel as though I am transported to another place entirely, and I spent an afternoon happily immersed in Jill's writing. The setting of St Carys was lovely, it was charming and I could imagine myself walking along the streets and truly belonging there.
The characters were very well-written, there was such a variety of personalities and they were all vibrant in their own ways, I really enjoyed getting to know them all. One of things I loved most about this book was that every character had their own story, their own personal issues or secrets and Jill explored these beautifully. The characters are all entertaining and had me engaged and very involved in their lives, I particularly liked Josh and Sophie, but at the same time I was eager to see how all of the characters would get on!
The Unpredictable Consequences Of Love is a truly delightful and absorbing read that is thoroughly enjoyable, and I am really looking forward to re-reading it again!
