Take A Chance On Me- Jill Mansell
This was another fun mind candy read. Cleo and Abbie are sisters in a small village- Cleo is perpetually single, has finally settled in a career as a driver for hire, and recently discovered that her current boyfriend is a married rat with kids. Oh, and her childhood nemesis, Johnny, has returned to the village after the death of his father and seems intent on worming his way into her life. Abbie has been wondering why her husband seems so preoccpied lately, discovers the secret he's been keeping from her, and completely falls apart while trying valiantly to keep it together. Add in Ash, the DJ next door, Fia (the rat boyfriend's soon-to-be-ex-wife) and a whole host of other issues, and you get an entertaining, if slightly predictable, story.
