To be honest, while I am a very loyal Jill Mansell reader I didn't realize how much her last two books was lacking until I read Thinking of You. I loved Thinking of You and flew through it in just a couple of days.  It  is one of those books that will touch your heart, make you laugh, and even make you cry with everything that Ginny goes through.

3.5/5 Well, my summer beach bag wouldn't be complete without Jill Mansell's latest North American release - Thinking of You. I do love a good chick lit read and British author Mansell never fails to deliver. Ginny's daughter Jem is on her way to university and that leaves the divorced Ginny with an empty nest, time on her hands and some extra finances needed. She ends up with a new roommate, a new job and a new man in her life. Sounds perfect doesn't it? But.... Jem too, has a new set of roommates, a new job and a new man. But... What I liked about Thinking of You was the two story lines from two different age perspectives. Mansell has done this in a number of her books. I think this makes her books more appealable to a larger audience. Mansell does an great job writing from each viewpoint. Ginny was of course a character you'd love to count among your circle of friends - generous and good hearted but with enough insecurities to make her 'real'. And a best friend who's a little over the top - Carla. I have to say I didn't really ever warm up to Carla at all - not before or after 'the incident'. Ginny's ex-husband Gavin was fun and I enjoyed his scenes very much. Jem was portrayed well - a young girl out on her own for the first time experiencing the heartache and heartbreak of youth. And I really enjoyed the scenes of Mom visiting the university - I've lived those and they had me laughing out loud. There are a few situations where I thought " Oh really, no one would fall for that" or some situations that were a bit too fortuitous, but then I gave my head a shake and reminded myself that it's chick lit. A place not to take things too seriously. A place where love is lost, love is found, friendships are made and tested and happy endings are the norm. In locations and places you'd like to live and work. So, while most of us will never live the lives of chick lit characters, we can visit, daydream and enjoy some escapist reading on a sunny day in the porch swing with Jill Mansell.

Any novel by Jill Mansell is delightful, fun, and quirky with charming characters and Thinking of You is the same. What fun to be entertained through out the whole novel. Also never dull. I can't wait for her next book. What can I say but it's a must read.

You can't help but love & identify with the main character, Ginny, in this book. She's a loving mother, a loyal friend, and has been burned by her ex. With her daughter Jem off to university, she needs more of a distraction than her slightly slutty friend & neighbor to keep her busy. She ends up with a job working for one of the last people on earth she thought would hire her--thank God he's good-looking! She also decides to rent a room out in her house. This leads to a chance meeting with what could be the love of her life, Perry. Too bad her housemate turns out to be his lovelorn, depressed sister. She too has a redeeming quality at least--she bakes delicious cakes! There's a lot happening in this book to entertain. Gavin (Ginny's obnoxious ex) is hilarious--I was totally picturing Bill Nighy the whole time & cracking up! He is blunt and to the point, but with good intentions. Along with Gavin & other funny moments, this story also contains heartbreak & betrayal. It turns out that all of the characters in this book are affected by love and where the stories go will constantly surprise you. I don't want to give too much away, but I did love this quote from page 203 which refers to being betrayed by a friend with regards to love, ""with men, sooner or later you kind of deep down expected it."" You will not be expecting some of twists & turns Mansell throws in, but you will not be disappointed with how it all ends up! Great book, I highly recommend it! And if it ever becomes a movie, don't forget Bill Nighy! Now who would play Finn.... Reviewed by Joelle for Cocktails and Books

I love this author and this wasn't my favorite. It was slow moving and very predictable. Easy to read though!

Reviewed by Aubrey Book provided by NetGalley for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book I embarrassingly enough have a bit of a love affair with all things British. The accent, the vocabulary and their love of tea. I love to read any book set in Britain. Thinking of You is a book after my own heart. Jill Mansell writes in a way that makes you want to pack your bags and move to England. Her characters are cheeky, eccentric and different from the typical North American character. The cast of characters in this novel is varied. You have the very rich characters to the less than wealthy ones. Ginny the main character has a heart of gold that kind of loses her way after her only daughter moves away to go to University. Her and her daughter Jem have a parallel love story. They each are dating men that hurt them and turn out to be not like they seemed to be. The storyline is one of how great changes in life can be celebrated if you are able to roll with the punches. Life changes but at the end of the day your friends are always there to help you and bring more to life. I can’t believe I have only read a couple of Mansell’s books. I need to go stock up on them. I loved how I felt happy and content whilst reading this book. Her novels are definitely a must have for when I need a pick me up.

I really enjoyed this novel, it was a good read particularly the second half. However, in terms of who ended up with whom at the end, it was somewhat predictable
