Sweet romance? I like Jill Mansell's books a lot. Her characters aren't always perfect and they make comical mistakes but there's always a happy ending. They're enjoyable and quirky and not all about washboard stomachs and perfectly rounded backsides. Her books don't change my life but they're consistently good so when I'm in a funk and can't find something I want to read, I often turn to them knowing I'll be sucked in and entertained for a bit.
