Book Beginnings on Friday - Nadia Knows Best by Jill Mansell

It's Friday, and that means it's time again for a look at the beginning of the book I'm reading for Book Beginnings on Fridays!

The book I'm currently reading is:

And here is how it all starts:

"Ooooooo ... EEEE ...." To her horror Nadia realized that she was having a Bambi moment. A scary, drawn-out Bambi-on-ice moment in fact. Except unlike Bambi, she couldn't make it stop simply by landing with a bump on her bottom.

About The Book:

The bigger the mistake, the more tempting it is ...

When Nadia Kinsella meets Jay Tiernan, she's tempted. Of course she is. Stranded together while a snowstorm rages outside ... who would ever know?

But Nadia's already been together with Laurie for years—they're practically childhood sweethearts. Okay, so maybe she doesn't get to see much of him these days , but she can' t betray him.

Besides , when you belong to a family like the Kinsellas—glamorous grandmother Miriam, feckless mother Leonie, stop—at—nothing sister Clare—well, someone has to exercise a bit of self—control , don't they? I mean , you wouldn' t want to do something that you might later regret...

This is my first book by Jill Mansell, and it is a hoot in a half!  I love Brit Chick Lit, and I really get tickled at all the cultural references that Jill sprinkles in her story! 

"Nadia Knows Best" comes out May 1st - look for my review next week!

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme sponsored by Rose City Reader (http://www.rosecityreader.com/) where readers share the beginning words of the book they are currently reading!

A "Bambi moment" -- that's funny.

Thanks for including your post on Book Beginnings.

I was wondering whether you would be happy to put up a link in my brand new monthly series called “Books You Love”. The idea is for people to link up posts about a book they loved – it doesn’t have to be one they just posted about. It could be an old fave. I am hoping we will end up with a nice collection of books that can go on our reading lists. Here is the link Books You Loved May Edition
