Millie’s Fling was a great chick-lit book. If you haven’t read anything by Jill Mansell, you absolutely must. You are very easily able to tell it is a British novel by its quick witt. There were many times during the book that I was literally laughing out loud. That got me some weird stares in the doctor’s office.
“When her dear friend and bestselling novelist Orla Hart invites Millie to spend the summer with her in Cornwall, Millie leaps at the chance to spend the summer alone, recovering from a bad breakup. But Orla has other ideas.
Envisioning Millie as the heroine of her next novel, Orla is determined that Millie should meet the man of her dreams this summer. The trouble is, Millie’s taste in men doesn’t match with Orla’s at all.
Hugh Emerson, dashing young widower, is the one who really interests her. He is also the one man Orla insists she shouldn’t get involved with.
With dropped wallets, rollerskating gorillagrams, the world’s most flirtatious boss, and a helicopter in the back garden, It’s sure to be an unforgettable summer…
A fresh and fun British women’s fiction and a great romantic book with plenty of humor, friendship, and some madcap fun.”
Most romance novels, it is pretty easy to tell exactly how the plot will play out. But not this book. It kept me on my toes! This book is truly delightful, complete with humor, and many, many misunderstandings. You will not want to put this book down, so I highly recommend starting it in the morning.
