Miranda's Big Mistake by Jill Mansell

From Goodreads: Miranda is overjoyed when she meets Greg at a cocktail party. Greg is handsome and funny, but he has not told Miranda everything about himself, such as the pregnant wife he has just abandoned.

This was a fun book to read; it is Brit chick lit done well with a cast of interesting characters in both posh situations and working class ones as well. You have to abandon reality to accept all the coincidences that make the plot work but because I liked the characters and wanted to see each of them get their due (whether their due was happiness or utter humiliation), I was happy to suspend my disbelief! This is the second Jill Mansell book I have read, the first was Millie's Fling. I enjoyed them both as e-book bargains, Millie was free and Miranda only 99 cents. That marketing technique certainly hooked me because Jill Mansell is on my list now of authors I like!

I have both of these books also. I haven't read them yet but I am glad to hear they were fun reads. That is one of the reasons I downloaded them. They looked like fun and were a great bargain.

I love Jill Mansell. She is probably one of my favorite chick lit authors so I'm glad to see you enjoy her as well!
