Thinking of You - Six Sentence Bookish Thoughts #89

Cover image courtesy of NetGalley/Sourcebooks

What Thinking of You is about:
Ginny Holland’s daughter Jem has headed off to university, leaving single mum Ginny with a severe case of empty-nest syndrome. To make matters worse, the first gorgeous man she's clapped eyes on in years has just accused Ginny of shoplifting. So Ginny decides to advertise for a lodger but what she gets is lovelorn Laurel, who can only talk about her ex-boyfriend. However Laurel has a dangerously charming brother, Perry, and add to that the offer of a great new job, and things are looking up…until Ginny realises that her potential boss is all too familiar.

Jill Mansell has never let me down and she delivers once again with a light and entertaining read that had me laughing and smiling from beginning to end. There were many things that I connected with Ginny about, one being home alone and the kiddies all grown. In a few short months my oldest will be over four hours away from me and it will be ever so hard to cut the cord (for me, not for him!). I loved how brave Ginny became and took control of her life.

Recommend? If you have read and enjoyed Mansell's books in the past then I am sure you will like this one. It's not my favorite, but I still had a good time reading it. I thought the twist at the end was great!!!

  2. I need to try this author, too. After a bunch of classics, I'm in the mood for something a little lighter.

  3. I just wish everyone in these kinds of books wasn't so good-looking, so we "normal" people could relate more! :--)
