Summary from publisher:
The bigger the mistake, the more tempting it is ...When Nadia Kinsella meets Jay Tiernan, she's tempted. Of course she is. Stranded together while a snowstorm rages outside ... who would ever know?
But Nadia's already been together with Laurie for years—they're practically childhood sweethearts. Okay, so maybe she doesn't get to see much of him these days , but she can' t betray him.
Besides , when you belong to a family like the Kinsellas—glamorous grandmother Miriam, feckless mother Leonie, stop—at—nothing sister Clare—well, someone has to exercise a bit of self—control , don't they? I mean , you wouldn' t want to do something that you might later regret...

My Review: 
Jill Mansell is one of my absolute favorite authors. I mean it. She is. No other author on the planet has the ability to make me laugh hysterically while keeping me completely engaged in the plot.
Nadia was a mess. But in a good and slightly adorable way. I always love Jill Mansell’s heroines because they are so real. They embarrass me and make me cringe in sympathy but I identify with each one of them. I loved Jay from moment one. How could Nadia even have considered Laurie when this man was an option? I would have picked him for his sense of humor alone. I did want to smack him upside the head for his typical male stupid moments but, otherwise, he was perfect.
I absolutely loved this book. I read it in one hour. I don’t do that very often. I get distracted so it usually takes me a few hours to read a book of this size. I laughed and cringed the whole time which, I gather from reading more than a few of Jill Mansell’s books, is her goal. I loved the healthy blend of humor, romance, and lively characters. This one was perfection

  1. Grace! Oh my word - you read it in an HOUR?? I am stunned and impressed! And thank you so much for liking it. You've just made my day!

  2. I really have to pick these books back up. I love to sprinkle a little humor or a cozy in between some more serious reads. Thanks for the great review.
