Jill Mansell‘s Take a Chance on Me is another romp in England with some outrageous characters from the chauffeur Cleo Quinn to teenager Georgia Summers. Set in Channings Hill, Cleo has been unlucky in love for a long time, but she’s had dreams of meeting Mr. Right for a long time, so long as he meets her expectations set by her sister Abbie’s marriage to Tom. Johnny LaVenture, a former classmate and now famous sculpture, was the closest to her dream boy until he asked her out on a bet in high school and ruined her impressions of him forever.

The drama in this novel is over the top, but engaging. Each character is quirkier than the last, but each is endearing to readers in their own special way. Cleo is often helping her friends find their true love while sitting on the sidelines, and for too much of the book, she seems to be the supporting character. However, readers soon discover that she is the glue that holds this madcap bunch together and keeps them rolling.
