"Take A Chance On Me" Review


Cleo Quinn doesn't have the greatest track record when it comes to men, but now Will's come along. Handsome and attentive, he could be her Mr. Right. Things are definitely looking up for Cleo... apart from one small problem with a rather large ego. Johnny LaVenture, sculptor extraordinaire and her personal childhood nemesis, is back in Channing's Hill and tormenting her as if he'd never been away.

Meanwhile Cleo's sister Abbie has a problem of her own---husband Tom has become distant and withdrawn, and she's determined to find out why. But will the shocking truth mean the end of their idyllically happy marriage?

The sisters are about to discover that the past can come back to haunt you, and that love can flourish in the unlikeliest of places...

My Thoughts: This is the first book I've read by Jill Mansell. However, she delivers a fun chick lit story.  But, that's OK, because sometimes it's just fun to get involved in a story you don't have to think to deeply to keep up with the storyline. It's fun to just set back and enjoy a delightful story that explores love, friendship, and second chances.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a lighthearted, fun book to read. I gave it 3*** because I liked it, and it was an OK read.

I read this book for my "Spring Reading Thing" Challenge. 

Since I own this book, I found it on my bookshelf waiting to be read.

  2. Gigi Ann, it sounds like a nice, light book, nothing too heavy.
