In RUMOUR HAS IT by bestselling author Jill Mansell, Tilly's not looking for love, but love certainly has its eye on her! Perfect for readers of Milly Johnson and Lucy Diamond.

When newly single Tilly Cole impulsively quits her London job for a fresh start in the small town of Roxborough she finds she's arrived in a hotbed of gossip, intrigue and rampant rivalry for the most desirable men. Tilly has no intention of joining in - she's just happy with her new Girl Friday job. Then she meets Jack Lucas.

Jack is irresistible... and he's got his eye on Tilly. But there are shocking rumours about his wicked reputation. Tilly doesn't want to be just another notch on anyone's bedpost. But is she being mature and sensible - or is she running away from the love of her life?

Our customer reviews

Since I tried Jill Mansell's book Fast Friends (I love it!), I got hooked and now have mostly read her books. When I saw this new book of her automatically bought it and finished it in 3 days. I just couldn't put it down. Story of Tilly, who gets dumped by her boyfriend in London who did a runner on her while she was at work. In spite of getting dumped (which she prefers instead of her doing it to the guy) she doesn't regret it for she felt that the relationship was going nowhere. She then decide to visit her friend Erin in a small town of Roxborough for the week end but in a twisted fate ended up quitting her job in London to work an live in the said small town. Working as a girl Friday for Max (an interior decorator) and her daughter Lou has its perks like meeting Jack Lucas, a good friend of Max's. Jack has a reputation of being a philanderer after her fiancée died in a tragic accident several years previously. Tilly knows for self preservation she needs to stay away from him even though her body and heart feels otherwise. Like in her other books, sub-plot characters never failed to make me laugh! In here we have Erin's best friend who owns a clothes shop who in turn fell in love with her customer's ex-husband. Max's Hollywood ex-wife comes back home after a backlash from a recent Hollywood scandal who then was able to find love right in the middle of losing her career and the whole of America hating her. With every twist and turn, you'll just love this book!show more
