I love Jill Mansell books- the only thing stopping this being a 5* read was that I couldn’t warm to Ross at all and therefore wasn’t rooting for him at any point. I loved the setting with Ross running a very successful hotel with his brother. Both brothers are scared of commitment within a relationship and I’m the sort that looks for the hearts and roses! Both are very successful men with lots of females chasing after them.
But I loved the character of Tessa and her career as an artist. I could imagine the pictures and being at her first showing.
The book is full of friendships and fraught relationships and secrets. I was totally immersed in the book and couldn’t put it down.
