From the publisher:

Even in a small town the drama is larger than life…
Cleo Quinn doesn’t have the greatest track record when it comes to men, but now Will’s come along. Handsome and attentive, he could be her Mr Right. Things are definitely looking up for Cleo... apart from one small problem with a rather large ego. Johnny LaVenture, sculptor extraordinaire and her personal childhood nemesis, is back in Channing’s Hill and tormenting her as if he’d never been away.

Meanwhile Cleo’s sister Abbie has a problem of her own—husband Tom has become distant and withdrawn, and she’s determined to find out why. But will the shocking truth mean the end of their idyllically happy marriage?

The sisters are about to discover that the past can come back to haunt you, and that love can flourish in the unlikeliest of places...

My thoughts:

WOW!!!!! I have never been as excited to read a British Chick Lit book as I was this one. This is one of my favorite books that I have read this year, think Bridget Jones (the books not the movie) meets Coupling (the British TV show). Its a very witty book where the characters are both realistically flawed and loveable. For me Jill Mansell is the queen of British Romantic Comedy, I will be headed to my local bookstore in the near future to buy her other books.
