I thought this was a great read – I really like the way that Mansell portrayed the relationship between Tessa and Rob – sparky, fun, but at times serious and emotional. All of the characters are given enormous depth and detail, apart from Antonia, who is your stereotypical bitch, who plays her part well. The storyline itself is great: the central story of Tessa and Ross falling in love was really enjoyable, as were the other storylines concerning Holly and Mattie. Mansell keeps the reader entertained with a strong way of storytelling, throwing in a few twists and turns along the way that kept me gripped. 4 stars.
