Perfect Timing: Review

Perfect Timing
By: Jill Mansell

Poppy Dunbar is out on her hen night when she meets Tom Kennedy. With his dark eyes and quirky smile, he could lure any girl off the straight and narrow, but what really draws Poppy to him is the feeling that she’s known him all her life. She can’t go through with the meeting they arrange – but she can’t go through with the wedding either. Suddenly notorious as ‘The Girl Who Jilted Rob Macbride’, Poppy moves to London. Soon she’s installed in the bohemian household of Caspar French, a ravishingly good-looking young artist with a reputation for breaking hearts. But even in her colourful new home, Poppy can’t get Tom off her mind. Until she’s tracked him down, she’ll never know if their meeting was destiny – or if the future holds something entirely different for her…

I am such the sucker for British lit and more so British Chick Lit. This is my first book read by Jill Mansell, and she does not disappoint in giving you the humor that most British Lit books have. Poppy is easy to fall in love with as she tries to make a life for herself in London. There are plenty of colorful characters to know and love, and well sometimes hate. The emotions felt by the characters were also felt by me. When they were frustrated I was as well. When they were happy I was as well. My only disappointment was that the story had to end. I will definitely be reading more Jill Mansell in the future!
