Nadia Knows Best

A warm and witty tale of love, lust and family drama

By Jill Mansell

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

Relationship problems? Life in a mess? Not to worry... Nadia knows best!

Love is always just around the corner in a Jill Mansell novel - with a few surprises and a lot of humour on the way to happiness.

When Nadia Kinsella meets Jay Tiernan, she's tempted, of course she is. Stranded together in a remote Cotswold pub while a snowstorm rages outside... let's face it, who would ever know? But Nadia's already met The One. She and Laurie have been together for years - they're practically childhood sweethearts and she still gets butterflies in her stomach at the sight of him. Okay, so maybe she doesn't see that much of him these days, but that's not Laurie's fault. She can't betray him. Besides, when you belong to a family like the Kinsellas - bewitchingly glamorous grandmother Miriam, feckless mother Leonie, stop-at-nothing sister Clare - well, someone has to exercise a bit of self-control, don't they? I mean, you wouldn't want to do something that you might later regret...

Jill Mansell's hugely entertaining bestseller GOOD AT GAMES is perfect for you if you love reading Cathy Kelly, Milly Johnson and Lucy Diamond. Reviewers love Jill Mansell: 'A lovely uplifting read' Good HousekeepingSuzy fell for Harry the moment she showed him her husband's sperm sample. It didn't really belong to her husband, though, because she wasn't married. It wasn't a sperm sample either, it was a drinks carton containing the dregs of her milkshake. But when you're trying to get off a speeding charge you just have to improvise, don't you? And it wasn't actually love at first sight. Still, it was undeniably a healthy attack of lust. And it might just be the beginning of something special...What readers are saying about Good at Games: 'This book is hilariously funny, addictive and you just can't stop once you've started. It's my favourite romantic comedy book of all time' Amazon reviewer, 5 stars'A really fun read in Jill's usual style. Plenty of ups and downs and truly enviable characters' Amazon reviewer, 5 stars'Another great book by Jill Mansell. It's amazing how she has so many interweaving storylines going on and yet she juggles them perfectly' Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars
