Miranda's track record with men is horrible. Her most recent catastrophe is Greg. He seems perfect--gorgeous, witty, exciting. And he and Miranda are in love... until Miranda discovers he left his wife when he found out she was pregnant.
With the help of her friends, Miranda plans the sweetest and most public revenge a heartbroken girl can get. But will Miranda learn from her mistake, or move on to the next "perfect" man and ignore the love her life waiting in the wings...
Another delightful contemporary romance. I knew within the first 30 pages who would end up with who (except for Bev, that was a surprise), but I still enjoyed the ride. Jill Mansell has a way of taking fairly common storylines and character stereotypes and turning them into a rollicking good read. I loved Perfect Timing and somehow I think I love Miranda's Big Mistake even more. Of course the main character is great. But somehow all the characters are great, even the ones you are supposed to hate. The story played like a good romantic comedy. With the rash of really bad romantic comedies in the theaters lately, has anyone thought about turning these ones into movies? They would be amazing. Funny, sad, cheesy (but good cheesy), romantic, yet realistic. They have everything you want out of a rom com. I must read her other books! I think I finally found a way to finished my Summer Romance Challenge. I'll just read all Mansell books!
