Miranda's Big Mistake by Jill Mansell
Miranda can't seem to catch a break. She's the lowest rung on the totem pole in Fenn's successful hair salon, mostly stocking shelves and washing hair when she knows she could be a great hair stylist. She can't afford a place of her own, but luckily has found accommodations with an older woman who needs some help about her place. Her best friend, Chloe, has just had her husband walk out when hears the news that Chloe is pregnant. Worst of all, Miranda can't find her own true love.
Then things seem to change. She meets and falls for Greg, who seems to be the man of her dreams. He even asks her to marry him and gives her a ring. The thing is, he is the cad that just walked out on Chloe, and when that comes to light, obviously the relationship is over. Miranda meets other men, some attractive, some not, some interested, some not, and continues seeking for the true love that will change her life.
Jill Mansell cannot write a bad book. Her novels are the ultimate feel-good, picker-upper books when one needs some relief from the unending drama of heavier novels. The characters are always engaging and endearing. The plots are complicated, yet all seems to end up well, with the good guys always triumphing in the end. Readers will turn the last page with a smile on their face, satisfied that all has worked out for the best. This book is recommended for readers who enjoy a light optimistic read which leaves them feeling that all is right with the world.
