Nadia Knows Best by Jill Mansell was originally published in 2003, but thanks to Sourcebooks, it’s been reissued nearly 10 years later. I really love the covers of the reissues compared to the originals, too.
Nadia Knows Best is the perfect summer read. For that matter, it’s a great read for those days you’re snowed in, too. I love the characters in this book. Nadia has a crazy family/extended family. Her fiance (soon to be ex-fiance) is a jerk, in my opinion, but in such a sweet way you can almost forgive him most of the time. Jake, who becomes Nadia’s boss, is handsome and sort of mysterious. While the end of Jill’s books are always pretty predictable, it’s what happens before that is always fun and unexpected.
Reading a Mansell is always comforting. You know when you open it that you’re going to get what you expect – a great story with a cast of colourful characters. I always feel like I become part of their circle and have, in the past, caught myself thinking about the book and wondering what happened to everyone! (yes, I’m crazy) But, I figure that if an author can do that, her books are worth reading.
Thanks to Sourcebooks for supplying me with an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
