Really liked this book, Read it on Holiday In Lanzarote in a day, I like books like that . Felt you really got to know the characters, although I think you could work out where it was going to go.

received in the mail from minkymoo76 of Ipswich, Suffolk, England in a trade.

Thank you, minkymoo76. I've already started reading this book. The cooking magazines are on their way to you.

Journal Entry 4 by tabby-cat-owner from Phoenix, Arizona USA on Monday, February 25, 2008
Another enjoyable book to read by Jill Mansell. When I read a Jill Mansell book, I really get caught up in all that is happening and forget about my daily concerns. Although the book is over 400 pages long, it doesn't seem long at all because it is the type of book that you can't put down.

This book was very well constructed. I liked the way it started with the main character, Ginny saying good-bye to her only daughter at the train station as she leaves for her first year at "university". At lot of things happen during the year that ensues and the book ends with Ginny again saying good-bye to her daughter at the train station but a great deal happier than a year earlier when she was so devestated.

Thank you tabby cat for including me!

Journal Entry 8 by acountkel from Charlotte, North Carolina USA on Thursday, March 27, 2008
This has to be one of the best chik-lit novels I have ever read. This is loaded with plenty of drama and humor and it kept me wanting more and was very hard to put down. The story is about Ginny. Her daughter has left for college and she is alone. She misses her daughter terrible and doesn’t think she can cope. But she picks herself up and decides to do something about it. She rents a room in her house to a woman suffering from a broken heart. Her name is Laurel and her brother, Perry, is to die for. This is a light, funny and enjoyable read. I am so glad I had the opportunity to read this popular British author. An opportunity I may not have had if it wasn’t for book-crossing. I am going to join another ring and this author will be added to my “favorites” list.

Thank you so much for including me!
Will be sending off to Chicago in the next day or so.

I received this book last night. I have one ahead of it but will begin it soon. Thanks for sharing!

Journal Entry 10 by angela861 from Chicago, Illinois USA on Saturday, April 05, 2008
I usually really like Jill Mansell's books but this one drove me nuts! :-( If my best friend did what Carla did, I wouldn't be able to forgive her. I really had a hard time w/ how Jem also treated her friend.

I have Joanazinha's address and will mail out Monday or Tuesday. Thank you, tabby-cat-owner for sharing!

Journal Entry 12 by wingJoanazinhawing from Amersfoort, Utrecht Netherlands on Saturday, April 12, 2008
And caught in The Netherlands. Wow, this book travelled fast over the ocean! Thanks for sending Angela861. I just started another ringbook, so this one will have to wait a while.

Edit 04/17: I've read 1/4 of the book now and almost every character is irritating me: deceiving Perry, sighing and longing Lauren, judging Finn and most of all Ginny. I would like to grab her by the arms and shake her thoroughly from time to time: wake up girl! The way she lets Perry treat her, the way she gives in when he puts her up with Lauren, brrr..
I will try to finish the book though, because I liked other books by Jill Mansell and because the previous j.e. are so positive. Hope it gets better for me!

Journal Entry 13 by wingJoanazinhawing from Amersfoort, Utrecht Netherlands on Saturday, April 19, 2008
Well, well, well, that wasn't so bad after all! At some point in the book I started enjoying myself and finished the last 250 pages in one sitting :-).
I still think the first part of the book is annoying, but overall I liked the book very much.

I will PM the next in line for an address.

A lovely, light read! I enjoyed every minute of it.

The book is finally on its way to Budapest, enjoy!

Edit:
I am terribly sorry, I didn't get to the post office during the last couple weeks. The book will be sent to Hungary on Monday, June 15th. Sorry for the delay!

Journal Entry 23 by hakkalina from Budapest, Pest Hungary on Monday, June 22, 2009
The arrival notification of the postal package was dated on Friday, but I was in tachi camp, only today I could go to the post office. It arrived safe. Thanks solskinn :)

Update: 2010.03.29.
^**^ Finally I fished this book out of my Mtbr-s, and started to read since I remember how much I wanted to read this novel. So now time is here, then I let it go. I think I will offer it for a BookRay, which helps me to finish :))
^**^ After the first 100 pages, I must admit that I love this book. The happenings, Ginny's monologues, the twists are funny, sometimes I laugh, sometimes I am astonished, sometimes I hardly can believe my eyes as I am reading, 'what???'. Although the lots of startling situations make this novel rather fictional than real. This doesn't happen in the life :))
^**^ I liked this book so much, should I read more Jill Mansell's books?? :) Thanks to share with me.

It has just arrived...it will be my first Jill Mansell...Thank you!!!

Journal Entry 29 by FallenAngels at Parede, Lisboa (distrito) Portugal on Wednesday, July 14, 2010
This was my first Jill Mansell reading and I liked it. It was a nice Summer time reading, excelent to take to the beachside...at first glance I thought it was another 'Bridget Jones' syndrom', luckily I was wrong. The irony that Jill Mansell transmits to the story makes it hilarious! Thanks for the opportunity.

I can't get into this book. I have PM'd easterngirl71 to ask for her address, but as yet, have not received it. I am going on vacation next week and my hope was to get this in the mail before I go.

ETA: Did hear from her, but I fear there is some confusion. I don't think she remembers she already signed up for it. I'm going for a special trip to the post office tomorrow. I don't want it sitting her waiting for me to get back from vacation. :)
