Book Description

Lottie Carlyle isn't looking for love when she meets her new boss, Tyler Klein. Living in a beautiful cottage with her two adorable - sometimes - kids in an idyllic village in the heart of the Cotswolds, on good terms with her charming but hopeless ex-husband and with friends all around, she's happy enough with her lot. But Tyler's perfect for Lottie and quickly she falls for him - and he for her. Unfortunately, there's a problem. For reasons that are totally unfair, Lottie's children HATE Tyler. When a rival for Lottie's affections comes on the scene in the shape of charmer Seb, the children adore him, and he's certainly a distraction. But he's not Tyler - and he's not even at all what he seems. Lottie's got a problem - but thanks, in classic Jill Mansell style, to a tobogganing accident and a delicious series of mix-ups, all will be revealed and true love will find a way.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointing 5 April 2017
By Dawn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Probably my least favourite Jill Mansel novels so far, and i've read most of them! The story line itself was quite gripping, but I found that the lack of respect that the children characters had for their parents, and lack of expectation and discipline from parents frustrating.. the words spoilt brats spring to mind! Bearing in mind that this is a fictional story, I still was enthralled to read to the end.. however the ending I found disappointing too, lacking in romance and, anything, really. Another niggle for me was the amount of grammatical errors throughout, lack of punctuation, and breaks between paragraphs, irritating and at times making the story hard to follow. Not the standard I expect from a Jill Mansel novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre at best 27 May 2012
This book was sort of a let down for me. It started out with so much potential, and had all the elements that Jill Mansell is known for. I liked Lottie's spirit, I loved Tyler's character and all the secondary characters were great - to start with.

Then the plot got thicker, and the characters became almost comical.

The storyline was ridiculous to tell you the truth, what with Lottie not choosing to be with a perfectly decent guy because her children disliked him. I am all with a mother putting her children first, but I mean, for crying out loud, the poor sod did nothing wrong. The children were spoiled brats, and that whole scene with them actually telling on their own mother to their principal and having her tell off Lottie and threaten her even was absolutely horrid. And Sebastian, seriously? I saw that end coming from the moment she first met him.

Also, Mario's storyline was very silly, unnecessary and not believable. Oh, but wait, here comes the good part...Cressida and her little romantic adventure. Good old Cressida. Cressida whose husband leaves her because she couldn't bear him any children, but then runs off, gets married, has a kid and asks his ex-wife to basically raise his kid. Oh, but the story's not over yet, because you see, Cressida gets SO attached to the little girl that she thinks of her as her own, and with a stroke of luck, her parents turn out to be insensitive, uncaring parents, who pretty much couldn't care less what happened to their daughter. So when they decide they are moving countries for a good business venture, they think well, we'll just leave our daughter - Jojo - with Cressida and have her adopt her because we are such incompetent, selfish parents. And Cressida gets EVERYTHING she wants in the world. A love story, AND a daughter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too much going on. 8 Feb. 2006
By Fran
This is not a bad book, in fact when I'd finally managed to get to grips with who was who I enjoyed it quite a lot, my only gripe is that Jill Mansell seems to be trying to put too much into her stories lately and I never felt enough empathy with any of the numerous characters to care too much really.
Her last book was a dismal effort - in my humble opinion - and while this is drastically better I still have a problem with the complexity that isn't needed. I much prefer her simpler, earlier work in that respect.
Lottie is a likable character that I never felt I had a chance to get to know too well, and why did she and Cress only seem to share a chapter or so? Considering they're supposed to be best friends they didn't spend much time together.
Tyler seems nice enough, but then so do Mario and Seb. Too many men to choose from? Maybe.
And finally, the ending had me feeling a little cheated and I'd experienced such better feelings of romance earlier on in the book that I felt the last scene was lacking in any.
Overall a feel-good Jill Mansell romance with plenty of village life thrown in, enjoyable for an afternoon's reading but don't get your hopes up too high on this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Jill Mansell at her best 14 July 2011
I have read a lot of Jill Mansell books, and a lot more to read, but this one was a bit of a let down.

I was not very keen on the character Lottie in this book, I read about 150 pages, and I got into the book ok, but skimmed the rest and just read what happened towards the end of the book with the characters.

I am now reading 'Millies Fling', and on page 46 and have already got into the book with the characters, and I know I will give this book a 5 star.

I love Jill Mansell books, and I do not expect every book to be brilliant, you are obviously going to get a few that are not as good as others, but it does not put me of her books. Someone else may think it was brilliant, we all have different tastes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Making Your Mind Up 16 April 2016
I love Jill’s books, have been slowly making my way through her novels. I haven’t read anything of Jill’s for a while, because there have been other books I wanted to read on my bookshelf, but hers are always on my shelf waiting to be read. Only problem is choosing which one of Jill’s book to read next.

Making Your Mind Up follows numerous story-lines of a bunch of different characters. Main story (romance) is between Lottie and Tyler.

First we have Lottie and Tyler. Lottie is a mother of two, Nat and Ruby. Tyler is American, worked previously on Wall Street, bought a holiday home in England that his parents loved to stay at when visiting England. He decided to buy the holiday home after his friend died of a heart attack because the pressure of the job was to much. Lottie is the assistant that come with the job.

Lottie’s children are a bunch of bratty kids. Nat and Ruby pull a lot of crap to get Lottie NOT to go out with Tyler. Lottie gave Tyler up for her children, because they hate his guts after an incident when they first met. She starts dating another guy, Seb. The kids love him, but I wasn’t overly fond of him. I didn’t see what Lottie saw in him at all.

Next story line is about Mario, Lottie’s ex-husband, father of Lottie’s kids. Mario is a flirt, doesn’t know how to turn it off and it’s what ended his marriage with Lottie. Maria’s girlfriend of eight months goes on holiday and Lottie goes into full cock blocking mode to make sure he doesn’t cheat on Amber.

Lottie’s friend Cressida, owns her business making Cards and invitations. Falls in love with one of her customers, Thomas that is vacationing in town for a bit with his son.
