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 ›

Good little tale that was well told. Three /four story lines all intertwined to make the tale complete and enjoyable . Smooth dialogue that made the beauty of the Cotswolds stand out. Well worth the read or listen whichever you prefer.

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.

A sex-crazed village, that's what Upper Sisley is! At first glance, your typical Cotswolds village, complete with Big House, village green with duck pond and bench, cottage-lined high street, Old Vicarage and pub. Your typical cast of village characters: nosy and self-righteous Eleanor, mysterious "spinster" next door keeping to herself, pub barmaid who does more for the men than just pull pints, single mother who still hankers after the love of her life 20 years on, three young vets sharing a house and unkempt garden, perfect couple who leave their little daughter in the care of a childminder so that they can pursue their careers, said childminder whose husband works in Dubai and has not been home in weeks, and the newcomers who have just moved in at the Big House: a famous actor, his too-good-to-be-true wife and two teenage children.

As the stage is set and the curtain rises, a merry-go-round of affairs starts; all in all, three marriages come to an end, at least two new ones are in store, and when the characters are not having sex, they are talking or thinking about it. Secrets are spilled, fatherhoods revealed, anonymous letters are written, and while it is all quite entertaining, the main plot is a bit too predictable.

Can you tell this was not quite my kind of book? Yes, entertaining, as I said, but not gripping; again, I did not find myself caring much about any of the characters. I found my suspicions confirmed too many times, and did not find the "witty" bits witty; in fact, I do get rather annoyed when an author seems to think the (female) characters have to be drinking all the time in order to have some "fun", and then wake up the next morning, trying to remember what was going on and whether they still want to see the bloke in question.

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'.

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...
