But she starts to have feelings for him and vice verse. And Tilly is starting to think the rumors are not true about him. But can she believe in love enough to trust the real Jack?
I really enjoyed this book. The story doesn’t just focus on Tilly and Jack, but on the secondary characters as well. And the story is told from all points of view. My only tiny complaint is the end seemed kind of rushed. Looking forward to reading Jill Mansell’s other books!
