(148)A Walk in the Park by Jill Mansell

A Walk in the Park

Pages: 448
Publication Date: November 6, 2012

It has been eighteen years since Lara Carson fled Bath in a hurry.  She has lived her life these years and raised her daughter the best she could all on her own.  Here it is eighteen years later and not only does Lara return home for the wedding of her best friend, but she has inherited a house that will give her the security she longs for and allows her to return to the only home she knows. Her only concern is her ex and Gigi's father, Flynn.  You see, he never knew that Lara was pregnant.  Lara's worst nightmares come true when she runs into Flynn at Evie's wedding.  What will he say when he finds out about Gigi?   And what will she do when she realizes that she still has feelings for GiGi's father?

As always, I thoroughly enjoyed Jill Mansell's work of art.  Lara is the kind of character that I would love to have as a BFF.  I enjoyed watching her navigate the waters of "Ex-Land" - she behaved much better than I would have, that is for sure. The relationship between Gigi and Lara was always fun to watch.  The mutual respect they had for each other was certainly admirable.  I also enjoyed the secondary story of Evie and her mishaps in love. It really said a lot about the bond of friendship she had with Lara that they were able to pick their friendship up after all those years as if no time had passed.

Bottom line, I have been a huge fan of Jill Mansell for years.  I am always so excited to see that a new book is coming out and I rush to read it as fast as possible.  Her characters are always cleverly written and are so multi-dimensional that it is easy to relate to them.  If you have never read a Jill Mansell novel, then I must ask - why not?


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.
