Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

Family Atmosphere, Comical Situations & Lovely Romance As Only Jill Mansell Can Write It

You and Me, Always - Jill Mansell

‘Every letter ended with those same words: You and me, always. She and her mum had said it to each other each night at bedtime; it had been their mantra, their secret promise to each other.’


Jill Mansell never disappoints. And with her newest heartfelt release, You and Me, Always, she proves to us once again why romance readers across the globe love her books.


I really do love Jill Mansell’s writing voice. I am always entertained with the quirky characters she creates and the funny situations they find themselves in. Plus, in each book we basically get to know a whole community. In this case it was the picturesque little UK village of Stanton Langley in the Cotswolds. While it may have been a tourist’s paradise, the charming people who live there year round took care of their own, especially Lily, after the death of her mum. That sense of family is what draws me to these stories, time and again.
