Would you be tempted?

Newly single, Tilly Cole impulsively accepts a job offer in a small town as a “Girl Friday.” Fun job, country house, fresh start, why not? But soon she finds herself in a hotbed of gossip, intrigue, and rampant rivalry for the town’s most desirable bachelor—Jack Lucas.

Rumors of Jack’s “love ’em and leave ’em” escapes abound, and Tilly decides to do the mature, sensible thing… avoid Jack at all cost. But the more time Tilly spends with Jack, the more the rumors just don’t make sense. Tilly doesn’t know what to believe… and Jack’s not telling.

I have to send out a huge THANK YOU to Danielle at Sourcebooks for sending me this advance readers copy of Rumor Has It. Danielle is the person who got me hooked on Jill Mansell’s books. They are fantastic chick lit books in my opinion.

This is the fifth book from Jill Mansell that Sourcebooks got the US rights too. The sixth book called Take A Chance On Me is scheduled to be out in October.

For me personally I am devouring Jill’s books. I love them. I am yet to be disappointed in them. I find the books to be a fun and easy read with some funny aspects thrown in.

Rumor has it is based on Tilly. She comes home to find out that her boyfriend Gavin has moved out.

You would think that this would make anyone sad and upset but really it doesn’t bother Tilly a whole lot. She decides to head down to visit her friend Erin who is in Roxborough.

While visiting Erin, Tilly decides that she needs a new outlook on life so she decides to stay in Roxborough. She manages to get a job as a “Girl Friday” working for an interior designer named Max.

She quickly releases that no matter the size of the town everyone one has a secret and rumors can spread.

Tilly meets Jack, who is known to basically sleep with all the women he meets. Everyone warns Tilly to stay away from him because of what he is known for so she decides that she will pursues a friendship with him even though she wants more. He is like that bad boy we were warned about. Will she be able to just remain friends with Jack?
