LoveReading View on Strictly Between Us

This is a sharp, edgy and amusing foray into the relationship world. The marriage in question is Michelle and Patrick’s, however it is Tamsin, Michelle’s best friend, who tells the story. The first chapter firmly snags your attention, a jaw-dropping event is described, can it be explained, can the problem be solved, or can it in fact, get much, much worse? Jane Fallon keeps your attention firmly on the page, at the start Tamsin knows more than you, then the tables are cleverly turned and suddenly the reader holds all the information. I had an urge to shout at Tamsin, to drag her aside and warn her, and as I witnessed events unfold, part of me wanted to read while peeking between my fingers. The matter of fact, bitter-sweet style of writing ensures a tangible feeling of substance and reality. Fully primed and ready to deliver several sharp stings, ’Strictly Between Us’ is a bold, feisty and witty read. ~ Liz Robinson

Strictly Between Us Synopsis

Behind every great woman stands another one. And for television producer Tamsin, that's Bea, her brilliant assistant. The only one Tamsin can trust with her coffee order, her dry-cleaning and filing - Bea does it all with a smile on her face. So when Tamsin hears a rumour that Patrick, her oldest and best friend's husband, is cheating on his wife, she is furious. Knowing she can't just ignore it, Tamsin plots a scheme to catch Patrick in the act, using Bea as live-bait. It should be foolproof. Except Tamsin never considered Bea might have her own agenda. And if she does, then Tamsin really needs to watch her back...
