I recently read Rumor Has It by Jill Mansell, which was released this month from Sourcebooks.
Summary: Tilly Cole is a young woman who recently finds herself single and answering a newspaper ad for a “Girl Friday.” She accepts the job as “Girl Friday,” moves to the small town of Roxborough, and finds herself fancying Jack Lucas. She learns very quickly that Jack Lucas has quite the reputation with women but a very interesting past. While battling with herself to keep away from Jack, she helps her friends battle Hollywood rumors, gay rumors, and revengeful soon to be ex-wives. With so much going on and Jack working around her constantly, will she be able to keep herself from becoming another one of Jack’s conquests, or will she allow herself to give in like all of Jack’s other women?
My Thoughts: This book was incredibly interesting and very hard to put down! There was never a dull moment and every page was filled with juicy gossip. I thoroughly enjoyed Tilly and all of her friends. I found myself relating to some of their problems, as I am sure others will too. It is definitely a chick-lit book and very much resembles Sophie Kinsella .If you are a fan of Sophie Kinsella, you will soon become a fan of Jill Mansell, if you aren’t already. It was a great read and I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys chick-lit. I would definitely read more work from this author.
My Rating: 4/5
