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.

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 ...

Reviews
