Product description

Amazon.co.uk Review

When Millie saves bestselling novelist Orla Hart's life and loses her boyfriend in the process, one wonders if the rest of the book can be as entertaining and eventful as this dramatic opening but for Millie Brady the fun has only just begun

Millie decides that a man-free summer is just what she needs but Orla, who wants Millie to be the heroine of her next novel, is determined to find her the man of her dreams. As far as Millie is concerned, the only man worth thinking about is Hugh Emerson but for Hugh, whose wife tragically died in a horse-riding accident, "dating is not on the agenda". Millie's determination not to fall in love with the young widower forms the centrepiece of the novel but Jill Mansell also delves into the shenanigans of Millie's best friend Hester and her eventful love life; Orla and her cheating husband; Millie's man-eating mother; and the leather-clad, sex-mad Lucas Kemp who runs a kiss-a-gram service.

Set against the backdrop of the tranquil Cornish countryside, the story is void of coldly beautiful, career-obsessed women; gorgeous men with flash cars and flashier wallets. Instead, Mansell has created a believable and diverting cast of characters, and even dares to portray sex as something other than mind-blowing:

Since carrying her into the bedroom, Lucas had stripped himself naked, launched himself at her, had sex and then rolled over with a groan of contentment.
In one hundred and eighty seconds flat.
Oh, and he had told her she was great.
Unbelievable.

This is an addictive, warm and funny read bursting with clever one-liners and sparkling dialogue. Mixed with a healthy dose of realism, the will-they-or-won't-they element will have you gripped until the end. Reading Mansell is never an idle fling; her ever-growing collection of bestsellers, including Kiss and Good at Games, demands a life-long love affair. --Amy Gallagher

This woman can do no wrong! A light hearted romantic read with a couple of twists & turns. Immerse yourself in the world of Orla, Millie & Hester - you almost want to shout out to them , tell them what's right under their noses but that gives you the urge to keep reading! Try it you won't be disappointed.

Until now I thought Perfect Timing was my favourite Jill Mansell book - but Millie's Fling has just taken pole position! Just when I thought that Jill's characters couldn't get any better, or her novels any more unputdownable, she introduces us to Millie, Hester, and Orla - all warm and funny and real women - who will make you laugh out loud and become your best friends. And to Hugh, Nat, Lucas - what a trio of gorgeous men! - who will make you want to set up home with them!
Millie's Fling is page-turning, truly funny and heart-warming - but with serious issues, too. These aren't treated in a flip way, and all help to make you really care what happens to the characters. I loved this book - and will read it again and again - and can't wait for the next one. Thank you, Jill, for being brilliant.

I love Jill Mansell novels. They're always a fun, light-hearted read and I think Millie's Fling is set to become one of my favourites.
It's has all the usual ingredients - an attractive, normal, non-neurotic heroine; a gorgeous hero; a couple of fun sub-plots and mini-romances and of course a rocky path to true love.
Okay so Millie didn't come across as being 25, but come on, who can resist "will lonely, but very attractive widower find love again...?"
The best bit, not wanting to give too much away, (although these aren't really the sort of books where you're likely to be suprised) is when Hugh calls Millie after the party. In that pool of light under the lamp-post at 3am, mobile in hand, consumed with jealousy (and something else best not to mention) Millie inside staring out at him....wearing that lovely Harry Enfield t-shirt. Fantastic!!

Lots of appealing friendly characters, this book keeps you wanting to read. Ideal if you've not got lots of time to devote to reading in one go. Easy to pick up and put down without losing the plot or your interest in the characters and what happens next.

Unfortunately I cannot say that this book was impossible to put down as I did on several occasions so I have awarded it a respectable 4*s. The book itself had a good storyline and interesting characters that you could really connect to but the first third of the book lacked something to hold my attention. The final two thirds on the other hand had me gripped throughout.

The book centres on Millie and Hester. Although Millie is meant to be the main character I do think Hester was as involved. This could be due to the book being written entirely in third person but I am unsure. Basically the two friends find a wallet on the way home from a night out. Unsure what to do the girls decide the prank call the owner of the wallet which leads to an incredibly faux pas but a budding friendship with the wallet's owner. The book then delves into the life of Orla. Orla is a successful romantic novelist who is known for her raunchy blockbusters but one bad review and marriage trouble leads her to write a new book about a normal girl as opposed to mega rich movie stars and this is where Millie comes in. Hester is in a loving relationship with her boyfriend Nat - who unfortunately works away up in Glasgow. Their relationship is already rocky when Lucas - a gorgeous crush that Hester never got over - comes back into their lives, and leaves Hester very confused. You then have small cameos such as Millie's parents, her boss's relationship and Con the sexy theatre turned movie star actor who all contribute to making this book full of drama.

The book itself was extremely well written and although there were a lot of side stories to keep up with, Jill managed to link them all with ease. The first third was not easy reading but it is defiantly worth it the further you delve into the book. I would highly recommend it.
