Oh, it feels like a long time ago that I read this one of Jill Mansell's. So long ago in fact that I'm probably due another fix of this wonderful, light hearted chicklit. An Offer You Can't Refuse was just as good as any of Jill Mansell's other books. A quick, light read perfect for a Friday night on the sofa, vino in hand, or to simply flick through a book to get the reading momentum going again.
An Offer You Can't Refuse was the story of Lola and Doug. Well, mainly the story of Lola. Her and Doug are highschool sweethearts, but as the years of university approach, Doug's mother confronts Lola with an offer (one she can't refuse funnily enough!). Doug's mother is prepared to give Lola £10,000 to break up with Doug and leave his life forever.
And does she? Indeed she does - but not for reasons you may initially think. However, as is the predictability of Mansell's books (and why we love them so), Lola and Doug are reunited through an intricate web of circumstances. Yet along the way, there are plenty of colourful characters to keep us entertained and throw us slightly off plot.
Is there a happy ending? Ah - I won't spoil it for you. Suffice to say, you won't be disappointed.
