Meet Me at Beachcomber Bay by Jill Mansell
Clues to describe this book: Love Triangles, Sisterhood, Secrets, Friendship
Review: This is the first book I read from Jill Mansell and it definitely won’t be my last. The story starts off with Clemency meeting the man of her dreams, Sam, when she is seated next to him on a plane. Fast forward to three years later Sam walks back into her life, showing up as her step-sister’s boyfriend. Clem has to pretend she never met Sam and needs to decide whether she wants to pursue the love of her life or stick with the bond of sisterhood. Overall, I really enjoyed in this book. Typically romance novels focus only on the main character’s journey, but Jill does an excellent job being able to branch out other characters’ subplots, making them just as intriguing to read. The fact that she is able to seamlessly connect all these subplot lines into one cohesive intriguing storyline is unremarkable . All the characters and relationships that they have with one another in this novel are extremely well-written. The main character, Clemency, is extremely likable – it’s difficult not to feel sorry for her and to root for her till the end. If you are looking for a funny, upbeat chick-flick novel, then Meet Me At Beachcomber Bay is a perfect addition to your to be read list.
