*Thank you to Sourcebooks Landmark via NetGalley for providing me with a digital ARC of this novel for review*
MAKING YOUR MIND UP makes the fifth of Ms. Mansell’s novels that I’ve read and beautifully re-emphasized why I have so much fun with her stories.
All of the familiar aspects of a Jill Mansell novel are here: adults with real-world problems; dialogue that is both delightful and, for lack of a better word, ‘sparkling’ with characters’ personalities; and a tight-knit community of supporting characters.
The novel also benefits from the inclusion of a children. I find they can either make or break contemporary novels — it’s the former, in this case. Lottie’s children are mischievous little devils that I couldn’t help but love because, well, I felt like I had definitely met these children before.
Therefore, as always, Ms. Mansell delivers a light, breezy romance with a good deal of heart.
