Comment: Jill Mansell is my go-to author when I want something fun, light and solid. It's never a five-star book, but I always enjoy them, they have fun characters and they make me laugh. It's almost a guarantee. This Mansell book doesn't have any of those elements. It's my least favorite so far. I really had to wrestle my way through the book. First of all I didn't sympathize with the leading character Tessa, couldn't relate to her on any level. She was very one-dimensional and normally they will become more likeable throughout the book. Tessa just didn't. The plot didn't interest me either. It was kind of a drag and my mind wandered of sometimes while reading the book. That never happened before. I didn't like "Solo", though I'm not giving up on Jill Mansell. One bad book doesn't make her a bad author.
