Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A few years ago contemporary, frothy romances were labelled ‘chic lit’ and as the genre became popular, so publishers responded with a lot of indifferent offerings, swamping the market. A number of authors rose above the ‘also ran’ and really stood out. This lady is one such. She is superb. This has the added delight of being set in the publishing industry and is really the most enormous fun.

Comparisons: Jane Green, Cathy Kelly, Penny Vincenzi.
Similar this month: Patricia Scanlan, Maria Beaumont.

If you like Marian Keyes you might also like to read books by Cathy Kelly, Jojo Moyes and Maeve Binchy.

Synopsis

The Other Side of the Story by Marian Keyes

The agent: Jojo, a highflying literary agent on the up, has just made a very bad career move: she's jumped into bed with her married boss Mark ...

The bestseller: Jojo's sweet-natured client Lily's first novel is a roaring success. She and lover Anton celebrate by spending the advance for her second book. Then she gets writer's block ...

The unknown: Gemma used to be Lily's best friend - until Lily 'stole' Anton. Now she's writing her own story - painfully and hilariously - when supershark agent Jojo stumbles across it ...

When their fortunes become entangled, it seems too much to hope that they'll all find a happy ending. But maybe they'll each discover that there's more than one side to every story ...

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

Lovereading is pitched at just the right level for all the various types of people who enjoy reading in its many forms.

Pam Woodburn

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.
