"Mansell scores again with a multilayered contemporary story of loves lost and found...." —Publishers Weekly

A funny, heartfelt novel about second chances at love from international bestselling author Jill Mansell

When it comes to love, never say never

When Nancy discovers the expensive jewelry her husband’s been buying isn’t for her, she decamps from the Scottish countryside to her best friend Carmen’s posh Chelsea town house to sort things out.

Nancy finds herself in a surprising new world, where rock stars are nicer than you thought, social workers are not necessarily to be trusted, and the filthy rich are folks with problems just like you. Everybody falls in love with the wrong people, and the path to true love twists and turns before you discover who you really want.

“Bursting with humor, brimming with intrigue, and full of characters you’ll adore.” —Heat on Don’t Want to Miss a Thing
“Warm, witty, and romantic.” —Daily Mail on Take a Chance on Me

"Mansell's latest is a fun, lighthearted story that provides meaningful drama, yet never takes itself too seriously. Mansell is great with characterization; each character has a unique voice and plays a part in the narrative. It's not clear until the ending which of the love relationships are going to work out, so the pace moves quickly and keeps the reader guessing." — RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
"Mansell scores again with a multilayered contemporary story of loves lost and found.... Humorous dialogue defines well-drawn characters and adds a fun touch to lives that are spot-on with universal human angst." — Publishers Weekly
"[Mansell] writes funny, romantic chick lit in the vein of Marian Keyes and Sophie Kinsella. In her latest to be published in the United States, she takes a standard story line of a second chance at love and adds enough twists and endearing characters to make it fresh." — Library Journal
"Mansell (Falling for You, 2015) solidifies her status as a queen of British chick lit with this funny, heartwarming novel about finding unexpected love and building makeshift families." — Booklist
