Thinking of You by Jill Mansell

 

I was on Twitter the other night and Jill Mansell tweeted about Thinking of You being available for $1.99 on Kindle so I picked it up.  I have read several of Jill Mansell’s works and enjoyed them and this one does not disappoint.  The character of Ginny was easy for me to relate to, a divorced mother whose daughter had left for university, separating them for the first time.  I loved the relationship between Ginny and Jem, mother and daughter and best friends.

Ginny suffers seriously with “empty nest syndrome” compounded by another loss and we follow her through a series of upheavals, new relationships, and betrayals.  Meanwhile, Jem gets herself involved in an inadvisable romance away at college and we follow mother and daughter’s separate misadventures.  Lovely, light chick lit with a well drawn cast of characters that you could meet around your own neighborhood.  A fun read, a plot that stretches belief in places, but it is chick lit after all.  Fans of light romantic reads will enjoy this.
