Miranda's Big Mistake

Synopsis:

Miranda's track record with men is horrible. Her most recent catastrophe is Greg. He seems perfect-- gorgeous, witty, exciting. And he and Miranda are in love...until Miranda discovers he left his wife when he found out she was pregnant.

With the help of her friends, Miranda plans the sweetest and more public revenge a heartbroken girl can get. But will Miranda learn from her mistake, or move on to the next perfect man and ignore the love of her life waiting in the wings...


Review:

I never thought of myself as someone that liked chick-lit, but the books by Jill Mansell may have now turned me around! I first reviewed "An Offer You Can't Refuse" last May and absolutely loved it. Now comes this one and I enjoyed it even more!! Ms.Mansell's books are easy reading books, that pull you in to the lives of the characters and don't let go until you finish the story!

"Miranda's Big Mistake" is about a girl who does not have good luck on her side with her relationships with men. Miranda decides to get Greg back good this time because she is fed up with how men leave her heartbroken. While she decided how to get even, we get to know her quirky friends and their relationship issues. The book was like a train ride with good views from both sides of the windows. The author make me laugh, cry and want the 'revenge' Miranda wanted in getting back at Greg...and boy does she get him back!!! The secondary characters really helped bring the story along and made the ending even better with many story lines to rap up.

I would recommend this to anyone that might have a chick-lit phobia, because Jill Mansell's books will turn you in to a chick -lit reader!!

Rating: 4.5/5

Thank you to Danielle from Sourcebooks for this book and I do apologize for the delay!

Okay...thanks for this piece. May be I am a chick-lit phobia. I once read a Judith McNaught book Perfect and didn't like the way things were so perfect and the woman had her way...that kind of love story. May be I have to change...
