Don’t Miss Jill Mansell’s Newest Release–Coming 8/1/19!
Izzy was a 36-year-old single mom with a dream of becoming a famous singer. Although Izzy loved her daughter, she wasn’t a good role model for her. Izzy didn’t concern herself about that, however. In fact, Izzy didn’t worry about much of anything. She depended on her meager barmaid salary as well as an occasional singing opportunity, to provide for Kat, and herself. Kat was more of a mother than Izzy was. She cooked and cleaned, and made excuses to her mother’s boyfriends for Izzy’s absence. Izzy had a good relationship with her daughter until she publically shamed Kat. After being humiliated, Kat distanced herself from her mother. That eventually changed, but not before they both suffered a great deal.
I didn’t care for the unsavory characters in this book who cheated on their spouses or took pleasure in meaningless relationships. Although I didn’t become invested in the characters, their quirky and sometimes silly behavior was quite entertaining. If you enjoy a light romance with lots of drama, Kiss maybe the book for you.
Kiss is a humorous, drama-filled romantic tale. This book was not one of my favorites by Jill Mansell, but was enjoyable and entertaining just the same.
Thank you, Sourcebooks-Landmark and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Bio (from author’s page on Amazon)
Hi, I’m Jill Mansell and I live in Bristol in the UK with my family. I worked for many years in a neurological hospital but for the last two decades have been a full time novelist of happy, sad, funny, feel-good fiction. Sales of my books around the world now total nine million and I’ve only just realised as I’m typing this now that over the years I must have made an awful lot of people laugh and cry. Sorry!
