I like most of her books but one of the main characters was so selfish and unlikeable that is spoiled the whole story. This book is not like her others, I do not recommend!

Meet Me at Beachcomber Bay by Jill Mansell is a sweet chic lit romance. We meet our heroine, Clemency at the start, when she boards a plane and sits next to a man who immediately draws her attention. Sam, our hero, is distant at first, but our bubbly charming Clemency is hard to ignore for too long. When they arrive at their destination, Sam quickly disappears and Clemency catches up to him to learn that he is married. Three years later, they will meet again, as Sam comes to St. Carys, on the arm of Clem’s sister Belle. Both are shocked to see each other again, and though she learns that Sam’s wife died, Clemency has to keep her distance, since Belle is now engaged to Sam. We also get to meet Ronan, another hero in this sweet story. Ronan is a long time friend of Clem and they work together as real estate agents. Because she is determined not to interfere with Belle’s relationship with Sam, Clem will get Ronan to help pretend that they are a couple. Clemency was a great heroine, always fun, caring, romantic and loyal to her friends and family. Ronan meets Kate during a showing, and they become friends. In a short time, he will begin to realize that he is falling for Kate. This was a another romance that mingled with the main characters, and the fun people of St. Carys. The only one I wasn’t crazy about was Belle, who came across as snobby, arrogant and bitchy. Towards the end, this will change somewhat to make her more likable. I loved the close friendship between Clem and Ronan, which made this story so good, as they were fun, humorous, with witty banter. The relationship between Sam and Clem was quieter, since it doesn’t really happen til later in the book. This was a very nice romance, with wonderful characters, small town atmosphere, and a few very nice background stories. The other good characters besides, Clem, Ronan, Sam, Belle, Kate were Josephine, Verity and Marina. The story with Marina was very good, and emotional. Jill Mansell does a wonderful job writing a fun story line that also touched series subjects, such as cancer, adoption and gay relationship. I wholly recommend Meet Me at Beachcomber Bay as a book for you to read.

Clemency meets a man, Sam, on an airplane has a connection, wow, it's been a long time. They chat the whole time during the flight. Could it be? They land, meet again in baggage claim and she finds . . . he's married. No, it can't be. Clemency moves on. She's a real estate broker and together with her boss, Ronan, they are one of the biggest agencies in St. Cary's. Another key character in the book is Clemency's stepsister, Belle. She is quite the charmer. If you recall the story Cinderella, think wicked stepsister, she is both of them, including their ego. Three years after that fateful plane trip, Clemency gets a call from Belle. Her and her new boyfriend are moving to St. Cary's. Can Clemency show them some properties to possibly purchase? Guess who the new boyfriend is? Oh yes, there is a huge plot twist, of course, after Ronan and Clemency (friends forever) become a couple. Thanks Sourcebooks Landmark and Net Galley for allowing me to read and review this very entertaining book.

Meet me at beachcomber bay was your stereotypical chick lit – upbeat, light hearted, and a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. You’re instantly rooting for the likeable and highly relatable protagonist Clemency, but for me it is the other relationships and character developments in the book that really set the bar high with this novel. Whereas other chick lit novels will focus solely on one character journey, possibly branching out into another one of two character plot lines, Jill Mansell has somehow managed to expertly curate an entire small town of individuals into one storyline. Everyone is connected, but everyone has their secrets. Of course, it wouldn’t be a true chick lit without a happy ending and I definitely was not left disappointed with this ending. I would spoiler alert this but come on, when have you ever *actually* read a chick lit where she DOESN’T get the guy?! One element of the novel that I wasn’t immediately keen on at first was Belle – her character seemed too demanding, too immature to be anywhere near realistic in comparison to her step sister Clemency. However, about three quarters of the way through the book, where Belle’s personal development climaxes, my opinion on her completely changed. Her actions suddenly made sense and were in fact, I realised, completely and utterly believable. Overall, if you’re after an easy page turner that will make you chuckle and near cry then this is a book for you! I cannot think of any reason to knock a star off this review – it’s a pure 5/5 for any chick lit fan!
