Bestselling Brit Mansell (Staying at Daisy's) delivers a romantic and lighthearted story about a woman's struggle to overcome grief and the quirky people who help her along the way. Ellie Kendall has the most perfect, happy life until her most wonderful, sexy husband, Jamie, is killed in a car accident. Months later, Ellie is deep in mourning and engaging in regular conversation with the deceased Jamie when her movie-star father-in-law, Tony, and her funky ex pop music star friend, Roo, step in to help her recover. Soon Ellie lands a fab new job, and hunky boyfriend prospects begin falling in her path. A montage of soap opera like tragedies and mishaps follow as Ellie's friends each deal with their own romantic upsets while Ellie continues to pine for her dead husband. When she suspects that her new Mr. Right is standing right in front of her, she realizes it's time to put Jamie to rest. Despite eye-rolling clich s, chick lit aficionados and Mansell's copious fans will eat this story up. Others will enjoy feeling warm and fuzzy, at least short term.
To the Moon and Back
I so enjoyed this book ! English writers really know how to tell a good story. This one had a little bit of a “P.S. I Love You” vibe to it. Enjoyed all the characters she created, and the way she brought them together. It was a good, long, very satisfying book, and I will definitely be looking for more books by this author.
