The usual Jill Mansell: lovely, warm and a little bit predictable.

'Sheer Mischief'is a reprint from 1994, due, I imagine, to Jill Mansell's current popularity. I have enjoyed her previous books and found this to be no exception. The plot bears a resemblance to her other books, but I found that I 'got into it' better than some of the others.If you want a good summer holiday read that doesn't trouble the old brain cells too much, go for it! If you're after intellectual fare I wouldn't rush out to buy it.

This book was a disappointment and not up to par with her other books. I initially chose to read this book because I wanted a little escapism, something quick and sweet to read in between other books, and I thought Jill Mansell is definitely the right choice.

Boy, was I wrong. This book was absolutely ridiculous. I mean, yes, granted, it's a chick-lit, so certain expectations go with that genre. There will always be a happy ending, it will always be cheesy and romantic, it will include the jerk, and the chivalrous hero, and two female characters, one who is absolutely clueless and naive and the other who is a complete skank.

So yes, as usual, Jill Mansell delivered on all of the above. But besides the fact that story line was so overdone and predictable as hell (again, I realize most chick-lits are predictable), but the quality of the story is what bothered me. What I usually love about Mansell's books are the short chapters, because I feel like I can fly through the pages in no time. Not this time though, it took me forever to get through the book and through the chapters. At one point, I found myself skimming huge chunks of text just to get to the freaking point.

It was very long-winded, stalled like no tomorrow, the twists and turns were so frustrating and annoying, and both protagonists were MEH. In fact, I found Maxine and Bruno a lot more interesting than Janey and Guy.

Definitely not worth more than a star in my opinion, however, that does not mean I've given up on Mansell. I simply did not prefer this particular book.

I understand that this is one of the first novels that Jill Mansell wrote - you can't tell that, it's easily as good as her later works. As usual, she delivers interesting characters - even the "good guys" aren't perfect, and you have to love them for their faults. It's really no mystery how the main characters are going to end up - we can't let Janey stay with that bounder forever, can we? Guy isn't going to find happiness with those bimbos, is he? But what IS surprising is how they get there and what happens to those around them. It's not an entirely predictable book, yet ultimately it is escapism at its best. Settle in and enjoy!

I have read quite a few of Jill Mansells novels but I have to say this is by far my favourite...Catchy, intriuging, funny...un-putdownable...Janey, Maxine & Guy are some of my favourite characters yet!

Janey is slowly rebuilding her life after the disappearance of her husband. One day her sister Maxine re-enters her life and sets her sights on a photographer, Guy. As Janey knows wherever her sister is mischief soon follows. Follow Janey, Maxine and friends whilst they traverse their romantic relationships in Cornwall.

Being an avid reader of Mansell’s latest books I wanted to go back to the beginning and read them. ‘Sheer Mischief’ follows the same formula that Mansell has and is a sheer delight to read. The plot is wonderfully frothy with plenty of characters to get stuck into and many eligible people for them to pursue. There are elements of the plot that are obvious but this did not ruin the plot as it was so entertaining and there are some surprise plot elements which only made the book more exciting. The plot overall is delightful and it was fun to be involved in Janey and Maxine’s somewhat messy personal lives.

The characters are great as well, all well written and developed and all very realistic. It was easy to get sucked into their world and read about their joy and merriment along the way. There are as well some more emotional plot threads which only add another depth to the book and give it more of a realistic edge. Janey and Maxine in particular are two great characters to be the ‘lead’ characters and there is a lot going on in both their lives. Guy is another excellent character and has his fair share of emotional storylines. Together the trio make for spectacular reading, prepare to get swept away with their story and to laugh, cry and feel happy.

‘Sheer Mischief’ is another fantastic read from Mansell, why would I expect anything else?! A great beach read.
