      Disadvantages

      Brilliant, Jill Mansell at her finest.

      Having just finished this incredibly fun read, it would be a novel I would definitely read again to experience the laugh out loud moments within its pages.

      An avid reader and great fan of Jill Mansell, this has to be one the best books I have ever read. Immediately, the reader cannot help but love the main protagonist Nadia and the circumstances in which she meets Jay, the guy we all hope to meet one day! However, Nadia already has the guy she believes will be the father of her children and the handsome husband every woman would be in awe of how she managed such a catch like Laurie. But nothing is really as simple a Nadia would like to believe.

      Her grandmother is also a wonderful character as her dry humor is lovable and sarcastic to perfection. Throughout the novel the characters are intense and the plot juicy. If you would like to experience Mansell at her finest, Nadia Knows Best is the one to read.

    It doesn't matter how sharply wrought the dialogue is, or how buoyant the plotting--a novel such as Nadia Knows Best stands or falls on whether or not the reader identifies with the central characters. And it's here that Jill Mansell knows precisely what she's doing: it's impossible to resist becoming involved with the characters even when they irritate us (and Mansell knows that from Jane Austen onwards, the reader needs to heartily disagree with some of the characters' actions). This is a stylish and cuttingly funny read. Are the days of chick lit numbered? That question exercises the glossies a lot these days, but on the evidence of Jill Mansell's Nadia Knows Best, there's still plenty of life in the genre--particularly if you can deliver goods as sassy, sharp and witty as this. In previous novels (such as Head Over Heels and Mixed Doubles), Mansell's subject has been the vagaries of love and friendship (with a healthy leavening of sex and revenge), and those ingredients are all well represented in the mix here.
