Loved it but got fed up of her doing a disappearing act every time something went wrong with out asking why.I'd have packed her in.A weak flaw in her character Her best mate was more fun and deserves a lead part in another book

Took me a while to get into this book. Found the lead character frustrating but got into it eventually. Full of usual twists and turns that I love about Jill's books.

I don't read books very often, but this one I couldn't put down. I also like the fact it made reference to places I know.

Solo is a story about painful consequences, unrequited love, betrayal, and adultery. This book deviates from Jill Mansell’s usual light and witty chick-lit novels. Although the subject matter is dark and distressing, the author’s talent for writing witty dialogue and funny circumstances substantially lightens up this story.
Tessa’s life had turned upside-down since her one-night stand with Ross Monahan. She knew it had been a mistake. Ross was a notorious womanizer and now; unfortunately, she was pregnant by him. Ross; however, after discovering that Tessa was carrying his child, told her that he was a changed man and wanted to marry her. He ended a long-standing affair with Antonia, a beautiful but spiteful, selfish married woman. Antonia was not about to accept defeat, though; she would get her revenge. Antonia was committed to using whatever means necessary to destroy Ross’s relationship with Tessa.
Holly, Tessa’s best friend, was eccentric and immature. She also had horrible taste in men. Holly was in love with Max Monahan, Ross’s brother. Max had no romantic interest in Holly. In fact, he found her irritating.
Although the story is not entirely realistic, it’s well-written, heart wrenching and infuriating. The characters are well-developed and captivating. Their stories come alive, demonstrating for the reader, the painful consequences of poor choices, secrets, lies, and betrayals.

Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy of Solo.

A re-release of a Mansell classic this book stands the test of time. Its a real page turner which you dont want to put down. You really dont expect to find something originally released 14 years ago to be so relevant today but it is! Tessa a self-supporting modern woman indulges in a one-night stand...which results in an unplanned pregnancy the father? Lets just say he's someone that your mum really wouldn't approve of. This book follows the twists and turns of Tessa and Ross (the one your mum wouldn't approve of) relationship. Although Tessa is the main focus of the book, you also get involved in the troubled love life of her best friend Holly, Ross's brother Max, Ross's teenage daughter Grace - told you your mum wouldn't approve, Grace's mum Mattie. There are lots of other wonderful characters in this must read book that help to make this wonderful book such a success!
