Reviews for Rumor Has It
Hilarious & satisfying romantic comedy - a perfect summer read!
In Rumor Has It: In a town this small, a secret is hard to keep, Jill Mansell comes up with another hilarious madcap and satisfying read! In the best British chicklit tradition, Mansell creates slightly spacey but sympathetic women romantic lead characters. When Tilly comes home to find her apartment ransacked, it takes a while before she realizes that her boyfriend has left her. Tilly's response is to take the commuter rail to the small town of Roxborough -- to visit her best friend, Erin, for cheering up.
Tilly comes across an ad for a "Girl Friday" job in Roxborough just as she decides that she's ready for a change of scenery. A string of events make it possible for Tilly to chuck her old life and start anew, surrounded by a new set of friends. Among the different characters, we meet:
* Max - a loving father, who has recently come out of the closet and separated from his wife;
* Kaye - Max's ex-wife, a famous daytime television star in the US, based in California;
* Louisa - Max and Kaye's teenage daughter, ginger haired, pale, lively, and fun. Louisa draws everyone together and decides quite early on that Tilly would be a good addition to the household;
* Jake - Max's best friend, the most sought-after bachelor in the area, deadly good looks, wealthy, and not looking for a serious relationship; and
* Erin - Tilly's best friend from college, the owner and manager of a vintage/high end thrift shop in Roxborough.
As Tilly, Max, Louisa, Kaye, and Erin are upbeat and supportive of each other as they each face their personal crises. Coincidences, misunderstandings and mishaps abound to create a fun, romantic comedy. Mansell's humor, sense of timing and wit come together so well to make Rumor Has It a surefire hit! If you're looking for a hilarious and satisfying read in the realm of women's fiction, I highly recommend Rumor Has It!
