Book Review: Miranda's Big Mistake by Jill Mansell

Miranda's Big Mistake by Jill Mansell

Published by Sourcebooks

Rating: 4 stars

After meeting Greg at a party, Miranda thinks he is a great catch and they eventually begin to date. Little does she know that he has just left his newly pregnant wife without looking back. Once Miranda discovers the truth, her friends help execute revenge on Greg but Miranda is still left feeling heartbroken. It will take some disappointments, tragedy and a little encouragement for Miranda to realize that the potential for love was right beside her all along.

This is another fun book by Jill Mansell, where the quirky characters come to life and get themselves involved in all sorts of crazy situations. I found myself laughing out loud during some parts from the series of misunderstandings and drama that transpire. Without revealing too much (hint: it involves race car driving), there is a plot twist that I did not see coming and though I'm still confused as to its place in the story, it did makes things more interesting.

Although Jill Mansell's books are considerably longer than most other chick-lit, there is never a dull moment. The plots are always multi-faceted and she provides a little something for everyone with all the different personalities and Miranda's Big Mistake is certainly no exception!

BIG THANKS to Danielle and Sourcebooks for my review copy

This is my first attempt at posting a comment. I'm new at all this, not a blogger, just enjoy reading the reviews about books. It's fun. I love reading and just discovered a few blogging sites. As I get more comfortable I'll see where it takes me. I added this book to my wish list. Thanks for your review.

I haven't yet read any of her books, but they all seem to get such raves! I've got to check her out this summer!

I haven't read any of Mansell's books yet, but they sound like they're incredibly fun and would make perfect beach reads.
