Happy Blogiversary – Day 4

11 Comments


This week is going by so quickly and never before has my little blog seen so much traffic.  Today, I have a review and giveaway to share with you all and in my next post, a great guest post by Jill Mansell whose book, Rumor Has It, I finished last week.

For me the true test of a good book is one you want to read quickly, yet are upset when the end comes.  That is how I felt about Rumor Has It.

When Tilly comes home one night to her London flat only to find her boyfriend has moved out, she heads to small town Roxborough to visit her bestie, Erin, and try to cheer herself up.  When she reads about a job in the local newspaper (which she has been making tremendous fun of) she ends up deciding to move there!

This book is full of great characters who have even greater relationships – be it love or hate.  And the way Jill Mansell writes them is just so delightful.  Her writing style is easy to read and she had me laughing out loud several times – as well as had me swiping tears from my eyes.

It’s everything you want in chick lit and is the absolute perfect summer read.  Many thanks to Danielle from Sourcebooks for sending me another book by Jill Mansell that I loved!

Now that you’ve read the review, you want to read the book, right??  Of course you do!  And lucky for you I have two copies to give away to readers in Canada and the US.  Comment on this post with your email address for one entry and comment on Jill’s guest post for another entry.  Contest ends on May 15, 2010, so hurry and get your entries in.  Good luck!
