What readers are saying about A Walk In The Park:
'Big and bold characters fill the page with colour, warmth and humour. I didn't want to put it down or for the story to end' Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars

'Vivid and realistic... I still linger on the wonderful story' Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars
Mansell (Nadia Knows Best) charmingly mixes her trademark British chick lit style with a web of poignant love stories. Lara Carson moves back to her Bath hometown 18 years after she abruptly left, with her teenage daughter, Gigi, in tow. Lara's close childhood friend Evie is about to marry local heartbreaker Joel Barber until she learns he cheated on her; fortunately hotel proprietor Ethan is there to soothe her sorrow. Lara's dealing with her own explosive news when her high school flame, Flynn Erskine, returns to town and Lara feels obliged to reveal that Gigi is his daughter. Elsewhere, rapper EnjaySeven drags Lara's longtime friend Harry Wells, a mild-mannered shopkeeper, into his reality TV series, leading the two to embark on their own unlikely romance. Quirky secondary characters add texture to the tale as each couple stumbles along most, though not all, eventually finding settled happiness. Mansell deftly weaves a sweet and pleasant story.
I have read all of Jill's books and not one has ever let me down. And this one is no exception! Yet another brilliant and funny page turner from one of the best romance writers of our time.
A lovely holiday read.
A thoroughly enjoyable book. I was sorry it ended.
