About the book:
When you meet the man of your dreams on girls night out, it's hardly…Perfect Timing
In this fresh and funny contemporary romance by bestselling author Jill Mansell, Poppy Dunbar's whole life gets turned upside down after a chance encounter with a handsome stranger...
Never a troublemaker, Poppy had always been content with the way things were supposed to be done—which included marrying predictable Rob McBride. But that was before she met Tom Kennedy the night before her wedding. Could she really be falling in love with a stranger?
Unable to forget Tom, or go through with the wedding, Poppy runs off to London. Her new life and colorful friends are anything but predictable. Misunderstandings, family secrets, and jealous quarrels ensue, but can Poppy stop running long enough to figure out what—or, rather, who—is in her heart?
I was so excited to have the opportunity to read this book. Perfect Timing is quintessential chick lit, which I love. Poppy thinks her life is just where it aught to be until she meets the man of her dreams the night before her wedding! Can you imagine? You are in love, about to marry that man and some dude changes everything. You realize this cannot be what life is all about. Although some might try to categorize this book as fluff, it is anything but. It is fun, spunky and humorous but it also makes you think. Could you drop everything in your life to go in search of a more satisfying and fulfilled life? I know you might want to answer yes right away but think about it. Leave the significant other, leave the family, leave the security of your home and find yourself? I am not sure I would have the bravery. If you enjoy books about self discovery and fulfillment, set in modern day London, this is the Perfect Timing to read this book.
