All I Want For Christmas # 3

This is a feature/meme where I choose a book each week leading up to Christmas and say why it's made it onto my wishlist – and I'd love to see what books everyone else is hoping to get! I'll be posting my pick each Thursday, but you guys can link up and visit other people's posts all through the week.

I found this meme over at Danya's site, so if you decide to play along, go there and drop off your link.
Author: Jill Mansell
Title: Take A Chance On Me
Book Blurb: The latest confection from the author of Perfect Timing (2009) is about what happens when your past collides with your present. In tiny Channings Hill, chauffeur Cleo can’t help but run into her childhood tormentor Johnny LaVenture at every turn. Now a successful artist, he’s back in town to settle his uncle’s estate. Cleo takes solace in the fact that she’s dating perfect Will until his perfect wife Fia shows up on her doorstep. Cleo dumps Will, but she can’t avoid Fia, who has decided to stick around Channings Hill and becomes the object of Cleo’s friend Ash’s affections. Cleo is nursing a crush, too, as she realizes that Johnny has outgrown his teasing ways. Then he receives a surprise of his own from his supermodel ex-girlfriend. Quirky characters, a charming setting, and misunderstandings aplenty make this madcap romantic comedy a fun, light read.
Why I Want This Book: I've heard about this author from so many people and I have several of her books on my wishlist, but I really like the looks of the plot. It looks like a fun, curl up on the couch on a cold night, read.
