Would you be tempted?
Newly single, Tilly Cole impulsively accepts a job offer in a small town as a “Girl Friday.” Fun job, country house, fresh start, why not? But soon she finds herself in a hotbed of gossip, intrigue, and rampant rivalry for the town’s most desirable bachelor—Jack Lucas.
Rumors of Jack’s “love ’em and leave ’em” escapes abound, and Tilly decides to do the mature, sensible thing… avoid Jack at all cost. But the more time Tilly spends with Jack, the more the rumors just don’t make sense. Tilly doesn’t know what to believe… and Jack’s not telling.
I think I have just found a new author to join my favorites list!  I loved this book.  The author easily captured romantic comedy without going overboard and the book flowed great!  I enjoyed both of the main characters and all the little stories that were included in it as well.  The author had no problems setting up the smaller characters with juicy story even when the focus was on Tilly and Jack.  
The cover is also playful and cute which fits the style of this book perfectly.  The author does have many other books out besides this one, so I will definitely have to check out some of her others. A new to me author that just made it to my favorite authors’ list!  Move over Shopaholic, Rumor Has It is on the way!

Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
For Rereading!

    I have read two of Jill Mansell’s other books and there were both terrific. I’ll have to try and make this one my next read from her.

    I have one of her books but haven’t read it yet, thanks for a great review, when I am in the mood I will have to read it and then decide on this one also.
