Falling For You – Jill Mansell

15 Jan

Synopsis – Maddy Harvey was a bit of an ugly duckling as a teenager, what with her NHS specs, unfortunate hair and wonky teeth. Thankfully she’s blossomed since then. But when she meets Kerr McKinnon one starry summer’s night and discovers, days later, who he actually is… well, that’s when the problems really start. Because everyone in Ashcombe knows what happened eleven years ago, and as far as her mother’s concerned, Marcella would rather tear that family to pieces with her bare hands than see Maddy associate with a McKinnon.

It’s Romeo and Juliet all over again. Quick, hide those sharp knives and that little bottle of poison…

My Thoughts – To start with i was a little bit unsure about this book because to start with i thought it could be a little bit samey. I was very wrong about this book. The plot centres on a little village and a few of the people that live there. Its a bit of a modern romeo and juilet plotline with the characters of Maddy and Kerr. It was also very funny in places, and had me laughing out loud at several occasions.  What i like about Jill Mansell books is that they have a serious side to them aswell, its not all fluffy chick lit. This did make me think more aout the book. I didnt want this books to end as i feel it could carry on more.

Rating – 4/5
