(93) Rumor Has It by Jill Mansell

There is something about summer that has me wanting to read fluff. Mindless novels that you can read sitting by the beach, or in your car at lunch (like me) they are fun books that don't challenge your vocabulary or have you sleeping with the lights on, but good stories with fun characters.

Rumor Has It is just one of those books. In fact, Jill Mansell is one of those authors. She could be compared to Sophie Kinsella, but I don't really like Sophie Kinsella's writing, so better. Rumor Has It is about a girl, Tilly who just got done visiting her friend out in the country. On her way back to London she decides that she likes small town life and calls an advertisement for "Girl Friday" in the paper.

It doesn't take Tilly long to realize that rumors run rampant in small communities. "Rumor Has It" that Jack Lucas is a playboy scoundrel that goes through women like water. Can Tilly look beyond the rumors to find the truth?

There are some subplots to the story that really add to the whole picture of this quiet little village. A very enjoyable read, exactly what I needed to read on a hot summer day.

Sounds like a cute book. I'll put it on my "to-read" list on Goodreads!!

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
