About Maybe this time
When Mimi first visits her dad’s new home in the Cotswolds, she quickly falls in love with Goosebrook and its inhabitants. (Well, maybe not rude Henrietta, who lets Mimi walk miles in the rain rather than give her a lift.) There’s Paddy, with his flashing eyes and seductive charm. Friendly and funny Lois makes her laugh. And seriously gorgeous Cal is welcoming and charismatic. Mimi would be more than happy to return to Goosebrook if it means bumping into him again…
Time passes and Mimi comes and goes, and concentrates on her career. Yet as their lives continue to intersect over the years and emotions (or relationships) become tangled, it’s Cal who makes her feel most welcome whenever she does return to Goosebrook. But if he’s The One, will it ever be the right time for them both?
I was kind of sick of reading Jill Mansell’s book the last few months, but when I saw this book I really wanted to read it. Maybe it was it the cover or maybe it was because I was in a romantic mood.
Mimi is a workaholic and never really had a relationship and then she is going to Goosebrook and she meets Cal. And you immediately notice the chemistry between the two. But there is a nice plot twist because Cal is married to a fantastic woman (not a bitch) and has a daughter.
A lot happens in this book and every time you think Cal and Mimi are finally falling in love and admit it to each other, something will happen. Life happens. Will true love win?
I really enjoyed this one. The storylines were great. Exactly what you would expect from Jill Mansell. Normally when a guy is married, she is a total bitch but not this time. That was kind of refreshing. She is honestly really nice and she and Mimi become friends too. But I had the feeling that Mimi was really happy for her and Cal, not jealous. And I was really curious how this would end. Normally you can tell exactly what will happen, but not this time. At least not for me.
Jill Mansell’s books are perfect for a summer holiday, very easy to read, romantic and fun. Even though I can be predictable sometimes.
