Truly man's best friend, in this case, Edgar - their relationship was so wholesome, so very sweet, so very sad at Edgar's final moments, that had me tearing up. En ondanks de voorspelbaarheid van het genre, weet Jill je in dit verhaal toch weer te verrassen met wat leuke en spannende twists in het verhaal. Jill Mansell's books have sold over ten million copies and her titles include: Making your Mind up, Fast Friends, Good at Games, Sheer Mischief and Solo, among many others.

There’s laughter, love and friendships abundance in this gorgeous book with a few moments in between that made me tear up a tiny bit (it wasn’t tiny, I cried like a baby realising it has to grow up and eventually pay bills). Plenty of charming laughs, plenty of clever twists, plenty of romantic touches and the special bonds we make throughout life, that while this isn't my usual cup of tea, I was happy to sip alongside this delightful and heartwarming story. Finally it was a book that I wanted to get back to, that I felt involved in characters' lives, so brilliantly written, light - hearted and also a little tear - jerker. When he offers Lou the job she explains that she already is caring for a woman in the town she lives in. Dit is een hartverwarmend verhaal over de kracht van aandacht en omkijken naar elkaar, over echte vriendschap, liefde, begrip, eerste indrukken en verandering, over kiezen voor geluk, wat miscommunicatie en interessante afspraken, over charmante façades en twee gezichten, over verdriet en vreugde.After a short stay in the Cotswolds Lou received a job offer from Edgar ( a grumpy eighty year old man ). Lou sets out to turn things around for Edgar and herself and wants to change his life and make him enjoy it again (which is very hard when he is so hard to please).

Hoe voorspelbaar ze ook zijn, het is steeds weer een feestje om haar boeken te lezen en zo dus ook ‘Het zonnetje in huis’. Sometimes you just need a simple and quick light-hearted read like Promise Me that doesn't have you ponder the meaning of life or think about the cheating love scandals that muddle up your life.Samen was het een compleet en goed uitgewerkt geheel en was het oprecht weer een heerlijke Jill Mansell!

There is something special in the book and in the writing, this something you are looking for in a book, that touches and pulls at the right heartstrings and yet makes you feel so warm inside. So when cantankerous 80 year old Edgar offers to provide a place for her to live while she cares for him, as well as promising to leave her a substantial inheritance, she feels guilty despite his lack of family and friends, but can't really refuse. He is not available so another distraction is on the way, is the object of her desire doing the same thing?Het was lang geleden dat ik een feelgood had gelezen en wat heb ik ervan genoten om het wel te doen! We also see how Lou changes how Edgar views the world and there is a beautiful moment towards the end of the book that had me in tears. She leans on the members of the small community that she’s become part of more than ever and Edgar is going to learn a stark lesson about human nature too. Wanneer het zonnetje schijnt en de vogeltjes hun mooiste melodieën ten gehore brengen, leven we toch weer een beetje op. We are taken on a wonderfully heart-warming journey of love and friendships with the main character Lou.
