Millie's Fling by Jill Mansell

From Goodreads: He's the best thing that ever happened to her. He's also the worst. He's Millie's Fling.From one of the premiere contemporary authors in the UK, here is a fun and romantic tale that proves the road to matchmaking hilarity is paved with good intentions.Bestselling novelist Orla Hart owes her life to her friend Millie Brady, whose rotten boyfriend has just left her. So Orla invites Millie to Cornwall, where Millie looks forward to a summer without any dating whatsoever. But Orla envisions Millie as the heroine of her next novel and decides to find Millie the man of her dreams. Except the two women have drastically different ideas about what kind of guy that should be. With Orla and Millie working at cross-purposes, and a dashing but bewildered hero stuck in the middle, the summer will turn out to be unforgettable for all concerned.

The absolutely perfect first book for my e-reader. It just seems like reading in the dark on an electronic device, you ought to read something light and fun and this was. Jill Mansell does her chick lit job well; the dialogue was so witty I laughed out loud at times. You know I kind of turn my nose up a little bit at authors of this genre but in reality, you have to have smarts to create sharp, witty, entertaining characters. But, in the chick lit tradition, the story was easy enough to follow that I could read a bit, go to bed, and the next night have no trouble picking it back up and falling right back in. I was able to download this one for no cost at Kindle but now when I go back now, it is $7.99. I haven't figured out how this all works yet but I know I was happy to get my first book free, I was happy my first book was funny and easy to read, and I was just. so. happy. with it all - what a good Christmas present!
