7th April 2016

What the publisher says:

 

In RUMOUR HAS IT by bestselling author Jill Mansell, Tilly’s not looking for love, but love certainly has its eye on her! Perfect for readers of Milly Johnson and Lucy Diamond.

When newly single Tilly Cole impulsively quits her London job for a fresh start in the small town of Roxborough she finds she’s arrived in a hotbed of gossip, intrigue and rampant rivalry for the most desirable men. Tilly has no intention of joining in – she’s just happy with her new Girl Friday job. Then she meets Jack Lucas.

Jack is irresistible… and he’s got his eye on Tilly. But there are shocking rumours about his wicked reputation. Tilly doesn’t want to be just another notch on anyone’s bedpost. But is she being mature and sensible – or is she running away from the love of her life?

What I Say

Opening up a Jill Mansell novel is like putting on a pair of slippers – cosy, warm and no surprises.  I downloaded this onto the Kindle app on my phone as it was on special offer and mistakenly thought it was a new release.  I wasn’t disappointed though.  The main characters are fun, warm and witty, and the story is easy to follow albeit a little predictable as to who Tilly will end up with once it becomes clear that her new employer, whilst being attractive and single is actually gay.  The story covers a lot of ground, there are actually three relationships covered over the course of the book but surprisingly none of them feels like padding to increase the word count.  If I was to criticise the storyline it would be to say that it does seem to come to an abrupt halt with Jack suddenly proposing to Tilly even though they haven’t even managed to go on a date or spend a significant amount of time alone.
