And Now You're Back: The most heart-warming and romantic read of the year!
About this deal
Jill Mansell’s books are full of love, life and friendship and have been bringing joy to readers for twenty-five years.
All of the characters have a role to play and all of them have a plot thread and their chance to shine. Well, only if you count that very fast paced one where 6 months or so were summarized in just a few pages. I always love Mansell's characters and this was no different, they are incredibly realistic and it takes no time at all for them to feel like old friends.But I am about constructive reviews and honestly letting my friends know if I believe a book is worth it or not. And Now You’re Back features a cast of colourful, well-rounded characters with believable backstories that add depth to the narrative. Deze verhaallijnen zouden in andere boeken misschien wat misplaatst of te snel gaan, maar in boeken van Mansell is dat geheel geoorloofd.
I really enjoyed getting to know both of them, and spent a fair bit of the book hoping they would come to their senses about the various men in their lives! Something terrible happened to pull them apart, however, and it's 13 years later when they reconnect. His son Shay is the reason for the book's title, and I really enjoyed the various dimensions to his personality too. Didi, now managing the hotel, shouldn’t be noticing: she’s engaged to Aaron, and their wedding is six months away: “Shay might have come back into her life, but he was a part of her past. Fast forward 13 years and Didi is a hotel manager at the Wickham Hotel and engaged to Aaron, when Shay makes an unexpected appearance as a guest.There were some funny parts too and one of my highlights was Rosa climbing over the wall of her old house with Red. Jill Mansell started writing fiction while working in the NHS, after she read a magazine article that inspired her to join a local creative writing class. She has since written over twenty Sunday Times bestsellers, including Should I Tell You, And Now You're Back , It Started With A Secret, Maybe This Time, This Could Change Everything and You And Me, Always , and her books have sold over 13 million copies around the world. Hij kan en mag niet nog eens haar leven overhoophalen, zeker niet nu ze verloofd is en eindelijk gelukkig is. In fact is was Red Masons' story that possibly intrigued me the most early on, he is a real character, and it felt as though he was rather charismatic even while being rather frail.
She has since written over twenty Sunday Times bestsellers, including MAYBE THIS TIME, THIS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING and YOU AND ME, ALWAYS, and her books have sold over 11 million copies around the world. I felt that the characters were a bit lightweight, not a lot of depth to them but overall it didn’t really affect my enjoyment of the story.I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes contemporary fiction which includes a little community with a host of fantastic characters.
