And Now You’re Back – Book Review
One magical night in Venice, Didi fell in love. But it ended – and he left without even saying goodbye.
Now, thirteen years on, Shay Mason is back.
The old spark is still there, but Didi’s determined to ignore it. As manager of a stunning Cotswolds hotel, she’s happy at last, and soon to be married. Anyway, Shay isn’t staying. He’s made a promise to his father. He’s going to keep it. And then he’ll be gone.
But Shay’s return stirs up long-forgotten emotions, and the scandal that led him to leave raises its head once again. It’s time for buried secrets to come to light. And it seems that this was someone’s intention all along . . .

If you like cheesy romantic stories, then this book might be for you.
Thirteen years ago, Didi was in love with Shay in Venice. But then their romance was shortlived when Shay disappeared without telling her. Now thirteen years later, Didi is working in a hotel and Shay comes back into her life, again.
Initially, the beginning was a bit bore to me–too much of characters and dialogues but by the middle of the book, it became good and interesting. Truth to be told, I am not much of a romantic fanatic but this book to me was OK. Characters to me are likable, plot was OK and the rest of the 50% of the book was OK to me. Though I have always wanted to read Jill Mansell’s books, to me, this was an OK romance book.
Worth four stars in my opinion! Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for giving me the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
