Review: The Unexpected Consequences of Love by Jill Mansell

Blurb from Goodreads:
Sophie has no interest in finding love. But what happens when love finds her?

Sophie Wells is a successful photographer with a focus on putting the past firmly behind her. When Josh Strachan returns to the seaside town of Cornwall from the States to run his family's hotel, he can't understand why the fun, sexy girl has zero interest in letting him-or any man for that matter-into her life. He also can't understand how he's been duped into employing Sophie's impulsive friend Tula, whose crush on him is decidedly unrequited. Both girls remain mum about the reasons behind Sophie's indifference to love. But that doesn't mean Josh is going to quit trying...
My Review:
I must admit that I've only read a few books by Jill Mansell previously but I hold her in the same high regard as my other favorite British and Irish contemporary authors -- Jane Green, Sophie Kinsella, Marian Keyes and Katie Fforde (my favorite of these!).  This book was right up there with my favorite contemporaries that I've read of the past few years!

The book revolved around three main potential relationships although there were webs of interconnected characters as well.  We first learn about Sophie who has been seriously burned before to the point where she can't even fathom another relationship.  Without giving anything away, I will say that I completely empathized with Sophie -- I understood her and I felt for her.  This story was unique -- not just with Sophie and her anti-love stance (but because of it) but all of the interconnected relationships.  I loved all of the characters by the end!

Another great one by Jill Mansell!!

"Basically, if you're with the right girl, it doesn't matter where you are."  He pulled her closer into the crook of his arm and kissed her again for about the millionth time.  "You're amazing.  I can't believe we're here.  I thought this was never going to happen."
