Living in a beautiful cottage with her two adorable - sometimes - kids in an idyllic village in the heart of the Cotswolds, on good terms with her charming but hopeless ex-husband and with friends all around, she's happy enough with her lot. But Tyler's perfect for Lottie and quickly she falls for him - and he for her. Unfortunately, there's a problem. For reasons that are totally unfair, Lottie's children HATE Tyler. When a rival for Lottie's affections comes on the scene in the shape of charmer Seb, the children adore him, and he's certainly a distraction. But he's not Tyler - and he's not even at all what he seems. Lottie's got a problem - but thanks, in classic Jill Mansell style, to a tobogganing accident and a delicious series of mix-ups, all will be revealed and true love will find a way....

    This book was a let down for me. It started out with so much potential, and had all the elements that Jill Mansell is known for. I liked Lottie's spirit, I loved Tyler's character and all the secondary characters were great - to start with.Then the plot got thicker, and the characters became almost comical.The storyline was ridiculous to tell you the truth, what with Lottie not choosing to be with a perfectly decent guy because her children disliked him. I am all with a mother putting her children first, but I mean, for crying out loud, the poor sod did nothing wrong. The children were spoiled brats, and that whole scene with them actually telling on their own mother to their principal and having her tell off Lottie and threaten her even was absolutely horrid. And Sebastian, seriously? I saw that end coming from the moment she first met him.Also, Mario's storyline was very silly, unnecessary and not believable. Oh, but wait, here comes the good part...Cressida and her little romantic adventure. Good old Cressida. Cressida whose husband leaves her because she couldn't bear him any children, but then runs off, gets married, has a kid and asks his ex-wife to basically raise his kid. Oh, but the story's not over yet, because you see, Cressida gets SO attached to the little girl that she thinks of her as her own, and with a stroke of luck, her parents turn out to be insensitive, uncaring parents, who pretty much couldn't care less what happened to their daughter. So when they decide they are moving countries for a good business venture, they think well, we'll just leave our daughter - Jojo - with Cressida and have her adopt her because we are such incompetent, selfish parents. And Cressida gets EVERYTHING she wants in the world. A love story, AND a daughter. The End.Are you kidding me?! Seriously? This actually happens in real life? Even if the parents are incompetent and neglectful, I have never heard of such a scenario where it works out perfectly for the EX-WIFE! Very weak storyline from Mansell there.Honestly, I enjoyed the book in a very superficial, trivial, negligible way - because if I were to try and look deeper into the story, or think of it more seriously, I'd have given it just the one star (due to everything I stated above).All in all, I don't expect every Mansell book to be great, and although she's disappointed me a few times, she's also proved herself worthy. For that, I will continue reading her books.

    Het was weer even geleden dat ik voor het laatst een boek van Jill heb gelezen maar het was weer gewoon een ouderwets leuk. Ik moest om sommige situaties toch wel grinniken maar er zaten ook mooie serieuze momenten in het verhaal. Al met al een goed verhaal met toch wel enigszins een voorspelbaar einde.

    Totally enjoyable in typical Mansell fashion:) This one puts more focus I felt on family & children, which was different but good. It has a more original feel to the storyline. In some places I would have liked to have seen more, such as interactions between Cressida & Lottie and also the ending. I love reading her books because you pretty much know you will end the book with a big smile on your face (and many times during the book too

    bleh...I have never read any Jill Mansell books, I see why. It's not that it was badly written, but I just hated most of the characters. The only characters I liked were the minor ones, Freddie, Tom, Cressie. They had some substance and niceties. The main characters were not likable. I never understand movies or books that are written like this:Handsome guy, beautiful girl, talk for 30 seconds and must be in love? Strictly based on looks obviously since nothing of substance transpires between the characters other than seeing one another. In a movie, I can accept it more because of the limited time to develop the characters. In a book of 462 pages, I'm sorry, they just come across as shallow. I wish I would have abandoned...but I have a hard time doing that with books. Not sure how this one is rated above a three average on good reads.

    I don't DNF often, but I have to here. The constant POV changes are driving me crazy, the one American character uses British slang more than the actual British characters and everything is just so cheesy. I gave it 100 pages and nothing got better. Maybe I'll try again someday, but right now I just can't.

    Um, I pretty much love everything about this book. There were a couple things I didn’t like (Seb and Liana), but they were a necessary evil. This was just such a sweet and wonderful story set in a small town in England. I’m obsessed.

    O que eu me ri com mais esta história de Jill Mansell, inacreditável.Após o último livro que li desta autora, excelente, pensei que tão depressa não passaria os olhos por algo seu tão divertido, mas eis Acasos Felizes para me surpreender, e de que maneira!Depois de dez livros lidos e nove opinados desta escritora aqui no blogue, confesso-vos que começo a ficar com a sensação, quase certeza, de que os meus comentários às suas narrativas são repetitivos. Afinal de contas, Jill cativa-me pelas suas singularidades que não variam muito de livro para livro – o que para quem gosta como eu é uma mais-valia – e que mais voltam a encontrar-se expostas no seu melhor. Dito isto, cheguei a um momento em que avalio as suas histórias com base nas personagens principais, no estilo de abordagem às problemáticas e romance comuns e, mais importante, em relação às peripécias, reviravoltas e humor – tudo o resto nestas páginas é trapalhada habitual de ler e chorar por mais.Como tão bem elucida a sinopse, a questão central do texto gira torno da dificuldade de Lottie em ser feliz com o homem de quem gosta devido aos seus pestinhas, que o vêm como um monstro. A somar a este problema simples, existe o ex. marido de Lottie sempre colado à porta de sua casa, a boa amiga com teias de aranha, o seu antigo patrão e grande amigo envolvido numa fatalidade e um homem lindo, rico e sedutor que afinal pode não ser um partido assim tão bom, mas que os pestinhas adoram.Resumindo, a vida amorosa da protagonista tem tudo para correr mal, e corre realmente mal, mas é maravilhoso vê-la assim como a Tyler sofrerem – muito bem, é horrível o que eu acabei de dizer, mas é uma das maravilhas da ficção.Gostei imenso de Lottie. Esta protagonista vai da irascibilidade à doçura em segundos com o seu feitio peculiar, já para não falar do seu sentido de humor, do seu grande coração de mãe e de se revelar uma amiga que dá o sangue por aqueles que estima. É, claro está, do género que se coloca nas situações mais impossíveis, que não sabe o significado da palavra descrição e que se mete onde não é chamada, ou não fosse ela louca por um segredo ou coscuvilhice. Gostei igualmente dos seus filhos, Nat e Ruby, muito irritantes, embirrentos e teimosos, algo que eu deduzo ser próprio dos seus sete e dez anos de idade, mas por outro lado também têm momentos em que são os anjos, como qualquer criança.No que respeita aos machos de Lottie, o ex. marido Mario caracteriza-se por ser um mulherengo que se vai moderando ao longo do texto, cumprindo bem o seu papel de pai e redimindo-se na segunda metade do livro. Já Tyler, que está igualmente bem enquanto patrão fatal, surpreendeu-me muito no final embora, desde o início, fosse possível antever a sua boa índole e me tenha logo conquistado pela sua eterna paciência. Por fim, Seb, é do género que nos deixa a pulga atrás da orelha mas o que vamos seguindo para ver até onde vai, bem ele vai longe, isso é certo. São todos previsíveis, essa é que é essa, mas são o protótipo de personagem Jill a que não resisto.Ainda em relação a intervenientes, quero citar Cress e Jojo, tia e sobrinha. A primeira é uma grande amiga de Lottie e juntamente com a sua menina acabam por protagonizar uma temática bastante interessante, assim como Freddie o ex. patrão da protagonista que permite a introdução de algo incomum nos livros desta autora, passagens temporais no passado e que dão ênfase ao presente desta personagem com questões importantes.Personagens, imensas como sempre, à parte, adorei os momentos altos do livro. As caricatas situações com uma Nana, um lagarto, com cinzas e uma crise de soluços ficam para a história de tão divertidas que foram – gargalhei! As reviravoltas, por vezes surpreendentes, foram mais um ponto positivo, embora o final tenha continuado a ser imaginável. E gostei, também, de todo o ambiente criado em torno da aldeia, onde não faltam os cromos e as fofocas que animam o dia de qualquer habitante de um local pequeno e idílico.No que respeita a questões pertinentes, Jill volta a satirizar vários clichés e vários traços característicos de indivíduos comuns, mais ou menos bons, que de uma forma ou de outra encontramos no nosso dia-a-dia. Os snobes, os fúteis e os interesseiros estão presentes, assim como os tímidos, os mulherengos e os excêntricos. Igualmente abordadas são questões como a morte e as drogas, e, num campo mais afectivo, o divórcio, a adopção, as relações passageiras e todo o que se encontra associado a novos relacionamentos de pais solteiros.Numa vertente mais animadora e emotiva, esta é também uma história de segundas oportunidades, de evolução individual e sobre o amor leve mas intenso pois, embora nem sempre pareça, esta autora é uma romântica.Opinião completa em: http://historiasdeelphaba.blogspot.pt...

    I love Jill's books, have been slowly making my way through her novels. I haven't read anything of Jill's for a while, because there have been other books I wanted to read on my bookshelf, but hers are always on my shelf waiting to be read. Only problem is choosing which one of Jill's book to read next.Making Your Mind Up follows numerous story-lines of a bunch of different characters. Main story (romance) is between Lottie and Tyler.First we have Lottie and Tyler. Lottie is a mother of two, Nat and Ruby. Tyler is American, worked previously on Wall Street, bought a holiday home in England that his parents loved to stay at when visiting England. He decided to buy the holiday home after his friend died of a heart attack because the pressure of the job was to much. Lottie is the assistant that come with the job.Lottie's children are a bunch of bratty kids. Nat and Ruby pull a lot of crap to get Lottie NOT to go out with Tyler. Lottie gave Tyler up for her children, because they hate his guts after an incident when they first met. She starts dating another guy, Seb. The kids love him, but I wasn't overly fond of him. I didn't see what Lottie saw in him at all.Next story line is about Mario, Lottie's ex-husband, father of Lottie's kids. Mario is a flirt, doesn't know how to turn it off and it's what ended his marriage with Lottie. Maria's girlfriend of eight months goes on holiday and Lottie goes into full cock blocking mode to make sure he doesn't cheat on Amber.Lottie's friend Cressida, owns her business making Cards and invitations. Falls in love with one of her customers, Thomas that is vacationing in town for a bit with his son. Her ex-husband left her because she couldn't have kids, he then has a child with someone else and treats that kid like crap. Cress spends a lot of time looking after her ex-husband's child, Jojo. Jojo and Thomas's son Donny plot to get them to meet up again and failed attempts when they had arranged to see each other, but something always come up, that had to put their plans on hold.And finally the last storyline is Freddie's. Lottie former boss. He gets sick and can't continue to run his business so he sells it to Tyler and Lottie helps Freddie gets his affairs in order. Freddie lived a colourful life. Loved reading about his life. Freddie's storyline is emotional and I teared up a few times reading it. Really like him and his search to make amends with his former friends.There was a lot going on in this book. Unique characters in and out of Lottie's life. Love the way she interacted with all of them. Why did Lottie and Cressida only share one chapter together, when they are "allegedly" best friends. Would of liked to see more interaction between them.I enjoyed this book, it's not one of my favorites book by Jill. Some of the stuff in the book, I thought was unrealistic. It did end a bit quickly but wasn't disappointed by how it ended, everything was tied up nicely.I am now on to my next Mansell novel. But which one?

    I love Jill Mansell's books. Almost as much as I love dark chocolate covered caramels. Which is, like, a lot.What Mansell does so well is tell different love stories focused on the same theme, with multiple narrators, in a way that feels fresh.So it is with Making Your Mind Up.Lottie, the main character, has a reasonably content life. Peacefully - although not painlessly - divorced from Mario, with whom she parents their two rambunctious children, she works for a vacation property owner whom she adores, has friends she trusts, and is blithely happy as a single mother.Or so she thinks.When her boss sells the property to Tyler, a gorgeous American with whom Lottie feels an immediate attraction, she realizes that she might be just a little lonely after all. She and Tyler edge toward a romance, and it looks like they might have a chance.Only there is one teensy little problem. Actually, there are two. Ruby and Nat, Lottie's daughter and son, cannot stand Tyler. Not one bit.Meanwhile, her friend Cressida finds herself entertaining the idea of a romance. Cress's divorce was not the low key affair that Lottie's was, and the reasons behind it continue to cause her pain. Fortunately, she has the company of Jojo, the teenage daughter of her neighbors. In nearly every way, Jojo is the daughter Cress always wanted. When Cressida meets Tom, a single father, Jojo helps her traverse the dating world. Theirs is a sweet, loving relationship.A third woman, Amber, dates Lottie's ex-husband Mario. An inveterate flirt, Mario has the lustily earned reputation of a man who can't remain faithful to any woman. Lottie certainly bears those proofs as scars. With Amber, though, Mario has a woman he wants to be faithful to ... he thinks. He's pretty sure, anyway. But Amber can't quite trust him. Once a cheat, always a cheat, right?Each of these woman has to make up her mind. Lottie has to decide if she can force herself to be happy with a guy her kids love, or if she should risk their continued disapproval and allow herself to make a go of it with Tyler. Cressida has to determine just how much she is willing to give up for Jojo, and Amber must figure out whether Mario can be trusted. Jill Mansell takes you through their decisions with warmth and hilarity, and also a bit of romance.Mansell also makes you tear up a time or two. Nothing comes easily for her characters, and any happiness they achieve is earned through having survived pain and heartache. You are fully invested in them and their stories, and when the book is over, you miss hanging out with them.Review copy provided from publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.Published on VoxLibris.net@VoxLibris

    Making Your Mind Up is a heart warming story that kept me engrossed, made me laugh, teared me up, and in the end made me feel good.I loved all of the characters in Making Your Mind Up. Lottie is the main character who is so admirable and realistic. I just really delighted in her character. As an ex-wife she remains on friendly terms with her ex-husband and his girl friend, as a mother the kids come first...even at the cost of any relationships she might hope to develop. I really felt for her as she struggled with her feelings for Tyler, her children's dislike of him, and her relationship with Seb...someone who's fun and makes her feel good but is not who she really wants to be with. I actually didn't see where that relationship was going...and neither did Lottie! As an employee and friend she is loyal and caring. When her soon to be former employer and friend Freddie gives her a task that is also heart breaking in it's own way, she takes it on and does it. This is a strong sub plot that continues through out Making Your Mind Up...one that needs mentioned but not given away because it is very relevant to the plot, so real and it brought out strong emotions as I read. I liked Freddie a lot and the relationship Lottie had with Freddie, the trust they had in each other and the obvious caring they felt for one another.For me Lottie was so believable and very entertaining! " '...I'm not allowed to die of boredom because I have to be here pretending to be a supportive parent for the next six hours...' " I felt like she could be my friend, someone I could easily spend time with and I liked her!There are a host of other secondary characters, some with strong secondary plots who tie in well with Lottie's life and are significant to the plot. I enjoyed reading about these people as much as I did about Lottie.I also really liked the English village setting and Jill's descriptions of the place. She made me want to go there myself and maybe have a swim in that lake!Making Your Mind Up has good flow, and Jill kept me absorbed in this story. I'd highly recommend Making Up Your Mind to women's fiction/romance readers who want to be thoroughly entertained.

    Lottie Carlyle isn't looking for love when she meets her new boss, Tyler Klein. Living in a beautiful cottage with her two adorable - sometimes - kids in an idyllic village in the Cotswolds, on good terms with her ex-husband and with friends all around, she's happy enough with her lot. But Tyler's perfect for Lottie and quickly she falls for him - and he for her. Unfortunately, there's a problem. For reasons that are totally unfair, Lottie's children HATE Tyler. When a rival for Lottie's affections comes on the scene in the shape of charmer Seb, the children adore him, and he's certainly a distraction. But he's not Tyler - and he's not even at all what he seems. Lottie's got a problem - but thanks, in classic Jill Mansell style, to a tobogganing accident and a delicious series of mix-ups, all will be revealed and true love will find a way."Lovely romantic story... man likes woman, woman likes man, yet her children stops them from being together, all until a tragedy. Such a sweet ending, with a twist. Had me smiling from the very first chapter. Great read, especially if you're a hopeless romantic. "

    This is not a bad book, in fact when I'd finally managed to get to grips with who was who I enjoyed it quite a lot, my only gripe is that Jill Mansell seems to be trying to put too much into her stories lately and I never felt enough empathy with any of the numerous characters to care too much really.Her last book was a dismal effort - in my humble opinion - and while this is drastically better I still have a problem with the complexity that isn't needed. I much prefer her simpler, earlier work in that respect.Lottie is a likable character that I never felt I had a chance to get to know too well, and why did she and Cress only seem to share a chapter or so? Considering they're supposed to be best friends they didn't spend much time together.Tyler seems nice enough, but then so do Mario and Seb. Too many men to choose from? Maybe.And finally, the ending had me feeling a little cheated and I'd experienced such better feelings of romance earlier on in the book that I felt the last scene was lacking in any. Overall a feel-good Jill Mansell romance with plenty of village life thrown in, enjoyable for an afternoon's reading but don't get your hopes up too high on this one.

    Jill Mansell writes satisfying stories. Here it is a week after I finished Making Your Mind Up, and I'm sighing with satisfaction at this complete, thoroughly developed, fun piece of fiction. So Lottie lives in a little cottage with her two children (when they aren't with their nice-enough but childish father). She feels chemistry with her new boss Tyler, but her children aren't having it. They behave badly around him, and speak badly of him. So after a failed attempt at dating, Lottie moves on to ever charming Seb... who isn't all that he seems to be. I KNEW there was something odd about that guy! In the end, love prevails, as do family and loyalty and reason. So besides phenomenal characters and a happily ever after, Making Your Mind Up illustrates the strength of family love. Most of Mansell's novels are fun and flirty, but this one adds the dimension of children - truth-telling, tiring, joyful parts of us that keep us forever in love. http://randombookmuses.com/tag/jill-m...NetGalley provided an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

    I absolutely loved this book. I was already a big fan of Jill’s and this did not disappoint.Once I started this book I couldn’t put it down, I was drawn in from the start and without gushing there wasn’t anything I didn’t like. There were sad bits and laugh out loud bits and I loved them all. There were times I really thought it would turn out differently to what it did and it kept me guessing on lots of occasions.The characters were easy to connect with and even had me liking one’s I wasn’t sure I should. It wasn’t just straight forward good and bad characters.I felt the story was really relatable for a lot of people especially the single mother working and trying to have a love life as well. I feel like I could this story over and over, it was such a lovely and easy read.I am already reading another one of Jill’s books as they never fail to disappoint and I can not wait for her new one!

    This story had my chuckling so many times throughout. It had romance, humor, and family! Lottie had an average life with her kids and she got along with her ex-husband, but what happens when she sees that her life could have more substance? When you make up your mind, do you take your feelings into consideration only since it is your life or do others factor in, like kids, friends, etc? The English background really adds to the story. So many unique characters come in and out of Lottie's life and I enjoyed how she interacted with each of them. Ms. Mansell has really nailed a terrific story here!

    2.5 stars. The entire plot is about a woman being with a crackhead instead of a perfectly suitable man because her kids don't like him, but then they spend a couple days with him and love him so now she can be with him. It's enjoyable as long as you ignore the sheer stupidity

    My first taste of Jill Mansell! 'Chit lit' is not my usual genre but this book has completely changed my opinion. From the first page I fell in love with Lotties spirit & Tylers charm. I have eagerly been out and purchased 'rumour has it' and 'head over heels' and can't wait to get stuck in!

    En de minnaar is... gaat over Lottie die samen met haar 2 kinderen in een dorp woont. Ze werkt als assistente bij een verhuurbedrijf van vakantiewoningen. Haar baas verteld dat hij het bedrijf (heeft) gaat verkopen. Dit blijkt aan Tyler te zijn. Haar kinderen kunnen hem absoluut niet uitstaan. Elke keer als hij bij ze in de buurt komt en het probeert goed te doen, gaat er wel weer iets mis. Lottie en Tyler besluiten dus ieder zijn weg te gaan en de relatie puur zakelijk te houden. Je merkt door het boek heen wel de spanning die tussen deze twee hangt. In het dorp woont ook Cressida. Zij is een jonge vrouw die alleen woont en haar eigen bedrijf heeft. Ze maakt namelijk kaarten op verzoek. Cressida is ooit getrouwd geweest, maar tijdens dit huwelijk heeft ze een kind verloren. Die twee zijn uiteindelijk uit elkaar gegaan, maar hebben nog wel contact. Hij is hertrouwd en heeft met zijn nieuwe vrouw een dochter die vaak bij Cressida te vinden is. En de minnaar is... is een humoristisch boek waarin de personages goed uitgewerkt zijn. Zoals je van Jill Mansell gewend bent, is het een goed leesbaar boek.

    I have loved every Jill Mansell book I've ever read, except this one. While her writing is engaging, the plot was way too predictable. I felt like I was always a chapter or two ahead of what I was reading. Also, I never thought I would say this about a Jill Mansell book, but it was way too long. My interest was flagging and I was only halfway through the book! The ending was fine, but by the time it ended I really didn't care. Nevertheless, I will still read anything Jill Mansell authors. As I stated previously, all her other books were a delightful blend of humor, romance and a really engaging story. Maybe I just wasn't in the right frame of mind for this book, but I will still stay faithful to this author and anticipate reading her next new read.
