‘To the Moon and Back’ by Jill Mansell

ttmab jm When Ellie Kendall tragically loses her husband she feels her life is over. But eventually she’s ready for a new start – at work, that is. She doesn’t need a new man when she has a certain secret visitor to keep her company…

Zack McLaren seems to have it all, but the girl he can’t stop thinking about won’t give him a second glance. If only she’d pay him the same attention she lavishes on his dog.

Moving to North London, Ellie meets neighbour Roo who has a secret of her own. Can the girls sort out their lives? Guilt is a powerful emotion, but a lot can happen in a year in Primrose Hill…

REVIEW: Ellie lost her husband, Jamie, in an auto accident a year ago and she still conjures up a vision of him when she needs to talk to him. This gives her comfort.

She has worked for several years as a PA in a OK job and still lives in the not-so-OK flat she shared with Jamie. Jamie’s father is a successful actor who encourages her to move into a nice home in a nice area which he also will use as his pied-de-terre when back in the UK from his filming in California. Ellie finds a new job, new neighbor and new boss. This change where no one really knows she is a widow helps her to find new happiness in her life.

I really enjoyed this book with its great characters. Watch Ellie find the strength to let go of the past and learn to love again.

About Bookworm

I'm married, working, and have grown and independent kids. I love gardening, reading and painting. My favorite TV show is Dancing With the Stars! Television shows have gone to the crap house. My favorite movie of all time is "Last of the Mohicans" with Daniel Day Lewis. Second best is "Titanic" and third "Passion of the Christ". I am an avid reader and I love talking about the books I’ve read, especially romance novels. I will warn you though: I am prone to rants and raves about a lot of things!
