Jill Mansell has 26 published books and continues to write best sellers. Her books have been listed as romantic comedies (like Four Weddings and a Funeral) and often comes under the chic lit genre. She definitely keeps the reader enthralled in the stories - she usually has several story lines going throughout her books. I noticed that The Unexpected Consequences of Love is called The Unpredictable Consequences of Love in the UK and has a different cover.
The Unexpected Consequences of Love takes place in Cornwall (which most of you know is one of my favorite places). Josh moves into the family hotel and is interested in Sophie. Sophie has no interest in men at all, but her friend Tula has a crush on Josh. Meanwhile, surfer boy Riley has a crush on Tula, but she believes him too flaky to take an interest in him. Thrown into the mix is Riley's aunt, a superstar author and Josh's grandmother and grandfather who are divorced, but still seem to care for each other. Of course there are lots of misunderstandings and a few secrets.
