From the comfort of my sofa

I just like to read! There is no greater pleasure than a peaceful house and a good book. I will read most genres but not sure I have the imagination to really "get" some science fiction and fantasy.

An engaging and enjoyable read

That's What Friends Are For: A feel good novel of best friends and secrets - Marcie Steele, Mel Sherratt

This is the first Marcie Steele book that I have read and I really enjoyed it. It is a book about friendships, love, lies and betrayal and it most definitely NOT fluffy chick lit.  The story starts quite slowly but rapidly picks up and develops a quite complex set of stories which inter-weave with a complexity that is both interesting and engaging. The twists in the story as the secrets are revealed mark this out as a read that has more depth than much of the women’s romantic fiction out there. However, given that the author Marcie Steel is a pen name of Mel Sherratt this comes as no surprise!

In all this was engaging and enjoyable read with enough substance to keep it interesting, well-developed characters and Marcie/Mel’s excellent writing style.

Many thanks go to Netgalley and Bookouture who allowed me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
