    I am so very excited to be on the blog tour for the UK paperback release of This Could Change Everything by Jill Mansell. I have read several of Jill’s books and they are always are a sure thing, however this one was just the very, very best. Oh, how I loved it!When Essie goes through a (slightly hilarious) major life altering change, she finds herself in several new circumstances, and her life will be changed forever. This is a story about the...

    The moment I met eighty three year old Zillah Walsh on the very first page, I knew that I was going to love this book. It’s escapism at its very best. Zillah was a fabulous character – no chance of her getting around on a mobility scooter. An open top Mercedes was more her style.Essie thought she had found the perfect boyfriend in Paul, until that round robin letter, in the form of an email was sent just before Christmas. Meant as a joke betw...

    Ehh this was definitely missing something. I have enjoyed the last two Mansell books I have read, but this one felt a bit empty and I honestly didn't like two out of the three main characters. I was more intrigued by a secondary character and definitely wished for her to have a better love interest than the one she got in the end. "This Could Change Everything" has Essie Phillips getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend after an email...

    Five ginormous stars. I can always rely on my favourite author Jill Mansell to tell a page turning story with characters that I adore. Oh dear why did Essie start to write insults about her boyfriends mother? This could have been her future mother in law. Essie wrote things about her boyfriends mother on her laptop and disaster happens when it all goes viral. It wasn't Essie that sent the insults about Paul's mother viral, no it was someone else ...

    This book is gorgeous, romantic, life-affirming perfection. I’ve been lost in it all day and never wanted to be found.
  • Shannon
    Dit boek was echt super! Ik heb enorm genoten van dit boek, ook al was veel voorspelbaar. Voor mij drukte dat de pret niet, omdat ik vaak alsnog nieuwsgierig was naar hoe het zou gebeuren. Vooral toen het nieuws van Giselle bekend werd, vroeg ik mij af hoe het zou aflopen. Uiteindelijk had het einde wel iets spectaculairder gemogen, maar het was wel realistisch, vond ik zelf. Al met al vond ik het een top boek en een enorme aanrader.
  • Sarah
    I knew from the opening page I was going to love this book and I wasn't wrong.As soon as we meet Zillah, I couldn't wait to find out more about her. I think she could teach us many a thing in life. I like how she believes in people and takes risks. For a woman in her eighties, she certainly lives life to the fullest and I thought she was the most fabulous of characters. Certainly one I will remember very fondly.Essie is the main character who due...

    Actual rating: 3.5 starsIt's been a while since I've last read a Jill Mansell book and I have to say: I kind of missed it. Her writing is hilarious and I've always loved her for her subtle Harry Potter references. This book was a really nice surprise and while reading it, I've immediately put her other recently published book on my to read shelf. 'This Could Change Everything' was such a lovely yet incredibly predictable read and I absolutely lov...

    An ideal pick-me-up for the summer! This one made me happy 😊
  • Kathryn
    This Could Change Everything by Jill Mansell was a joy to read. One of those books you can just pick up and relax into. It was a great mix of wonderful and endearing characters, with a little fun and a bit of romance thrown in. I loved Zillah, what a character, the kind of person I'd love to be at eighty three. She was warm and generous, loves dressing up and going out and having a good time, yet very thoughtful of others. She's quite human so ha...

    All reviews can be found on my blog at https://thewritinggarnet.wordpress.comI am just going to put this out here - 'This Could Change Everything' is my most favourite book of 2018 so far. What a phenomenally written, enchanting, and heart-warming read! Never in my life have I read anything like this before and, whilst I'm being perfectly honest, I really don't think I will again for a while (well, until Jill Mansell publishes her next book!).I h...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 StarsSee the full review at HarlequinJunkie.comThis Could Change Everything was an absolutely wonderful new novel by Jill Mansell that touched upon how the choices we make can cause a ripple effect around us. Touching, funny, down-to-earth, and oh-so satisfying, I adored every moment spent reading this book. “Every day, we do things that are capable of changing everything, and that’s what makes life exciting.”I’m always...

    Weer een pareltje v Miss Mansell
  • Rachel Gilbey
    Easily this is Jill Mansell at her uplifting and heartwarming book, in this tale of fate and chance. As it is a series of chance meetings and incidents that leads to Conor, Zillah and Essie all sharing a house, and Essie meeting Lucas. And its thanks to Zillah's enigmatic personality that you realise what a special lady she is. Yes I know the blurb may imply that Essie is the main character but to me Zillah is the heart and soul of this book. She...

    A proud owner of all Jill Mansell's books speaking here (I must take a photo of them all standing on my bookshelf, totally) - no need to mention that I of course have read them all, and loved all of them, without exception. Every new release from this author is impatiently awaited by yours truly. The beautiful orange cover of this brand new offer from Ms Mansell catches your eye immediately - I can't recall a book cover in such lovely, warm colou...

    An enjoyable, well-written, but incredibly predictable plot. If you don't suss out what's going to happen after reading the first 5 chapters, you need to see your doctor!I love Jill Mansell's books. To date, there has only been one of her books I haven't enjoyed, which is good odds I think. You know what you're getting with Mansell - she'll give you a plethora of characters, intermingled storylines, some twists, and a happy ending. It's classic, ...
  • Lydia Bailey
    I have a love-hate relationship with chick-lit but have only found a handful which I’ve really loved. This was a good read & I enjoyed it on the whole, it kept me interested with many interesting & varied characters. The storylines too were original & varied though the main romantic ‘will they/won’t theys’were easy to predict. The opening chapter was great so I was a little disappointed when it began to get fluffy & flouncy & the last lin...

    "Why do people have to pretend their lives are perfect? All it does make other people feel like failures. Why can't they be honest about what's going on?"Everyday we do things that are capable of changing everything, and that's what makes life exciting."Some people here are fussing about the plot that it was too predictable and all. What are you reading a Mystery/Thriller ? Well, there is something in "Jill Mansell" way of writing once you start ...

    Essie is settled. She's living with her boyfriend Paul, she has a job and all is going well. It's almost Christmas and Essie and her friend Scarlett are chuckling over a Round Robin letter sent by friends of Paul's family. Essie's decision to write her own version of the Christmas Round Robin seems like the funniest of jokes .... until the next morning, when she wakes up to find that the letter has been forwarded to everyone in her contacts list....

    For starters, I just want to say how much I love the opening sentence of this book. As writers, we are always being told that you have to have a killer opening line that hooks the reader instantly. Well, listen to this one, “What could be more glorious than sitting at a pavement cafe on a sunny afternoon, wearing a marvellous new hat and witnessing an imminent crime?” I was fully invested in this book from the first moment and completely in l...

    I absolutely adore reading a Jill Mansell novel and with every new one I indulge in, I gain a new favourite as Jill's writing never fails to captivate me and her stories are always fresh.This Could Change Everything is no exception and as with most of Jill's books, she expertly takes a handful of characters and entwines their worlds, bringing the characters and their stories together.In This Could Change Everything the main characters are Essie, ...
  • Yun
    This Could Change Everything is so sweet and uplifting, with a delightful cast of characters all looking for their happily ever after. As their paths weave and cross, they experience surprises, heart breaks, and finally love. The setting of this story, which takes place during Christmas and winter, feels so warm and cozy. Even though these types of books are always a little cheesy, I found this story to be fresh and lovely without being saccharin...

    It’s been a while since I read a Jill Mansell, I happened to stumble across this and the synopsis sounded fantastic so I picked it up. I knew from the start what was going to happen in this book, there were a few twists and turns but essentially I knew. But that’s ok, these books are all about the journey. Such fantastic characters, who feel real and who I really connected with. I loved the was Jill intertwined their lives and told such a ful...
  • Hayley
    A warm story. One event changes Essie's life completely and as a reader it was a pleasure to watch her new life take shape. All characters in this book are wonderfully portrayed, Zillah is my favourite - she just emits warmth wherever she goes. I guess this book puts the fact that everything really could change in a heartbeat in perspective. I found myself smiling through a lot of this book, understanding that there are kind people in the world w...
