Faking Friends By Jane Fallon

Faking Friends‘Faking Friends’ is Jane Fallon’s latest book.

Amy thought she knew who Melissa was – then again, Amy also thought she was on the verge of the wedding of her dreams to her long-distance fiancé.When her career suddenly begins to unravel, Amy pays a surprise trip home to London. Her boyfriend Jack is out, but it looks like another woman has been making herself at home. And that Other Woman is Melissa. Amy has lost her job, her fiancé, her best friend and her home in one disastrous weekend – but instead of falling apart she’s determined to get her own back.Piecing her life back together won’t be half as fun as dismantling theirs, after all.

In this book, we meet Amy, a successful actress in New York, whose career suddenly comes to an end and she finds herself returning to London with her tail between her legs. She’s looking forward to seeing her fiancé Jack as they have spent so much time apart with her busy career but she gets the shock of her life when she discovers that whilst she’s been away, her best friend Mel has moved in on her life with her fiancé.

Amy is now in limbo, no job and no fiancé, she’s determined to move on but isn’t going to let onto either of them that she knows about their affair, instead she decides to play games with them instead and this really makes for entertaining reading.

Amy is a great character, she’s strong and driven and refuses to go down without a fight, gradually moving her life into a small grotty flat that she now calls home. But with the help of her friend Kat, a woman she wasn’t as close to as she was to Mel, Amy begins to create a new life for herself and even meets a handsome new man.

In Jane’s witty style of writing, the story is also seen through the narrative of Mel and this for me makes for delicious reading. Mel, is self absorbed, opinionated and also self entitled. She rarely sees herself as doing anything wrong and blames others for her own failures. She’s jealous of Amy’s life, as she always wanted to be the actress and we see that from the flashbacks that are scattered throughout the story.

Deliciously funny and captivating from the start, ‘Faking Friends’ is a cleverly written tale about the complexities of female relationships and starting over. I loved it.

You can pre-order Faking Friends from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 11th January 2018.

My Sweet Revenge By Jane Fallon

My Sweet Revenge‘My Sweet Revenge’ is the latest book by Jane Fallon

Paula has had Robert’s back since they got together as drama students. She gave up her dreams so he could make it. Now he’s one of the nation’s most popular actors. And Paula’s just discovered he’s having an affair.She’s going to remind Robert just what he’s sacrificing. And then she’s going to break his heart like he broke hers. It will be her greatest acting role ever.

When it comes to Jane Fallon, she’s one of my favourite authors, definitely in my top three so when I was fortunate to receive a copy of her brand new book ‘My Sweet Revenge’, I dropped everything so I could delve straight in.

The story is primarily seen through the eyes of Paula, a comfortable house wife who discovers her actor husband is having an affair with his on-screen wife, Saskia. Distraught and angered that the man she committed her life to, has betrayed her, she decides to get revenge on him. She goes about reinventing herself, gone are the dowdy days of the quiet wife, she becomes glamorous investing in a new wardrobe and loses weight, with the intention of showing what he’s losing when she confronts him. But cleverly, she befriends Saskia, the woman that he’s being having an affair and the two of become good friends, but both women have seriously different motives for the friendship.

Like Jane’s previous books, the story flows at a fast and witty pace. The narrative is dark and humorous and the characters are both relatable and likeable so this makes for enjoyable reading. Paula, is a particularly great lead, instead of falling apart when she finds Robert is cheating on her, she seizes the opportunity to create a better life and image for herself. It’s lovely to see her blossom in the story, as she grows in confidence and feels better about herself. I loved her sharp wit and her strength. Meanwhile Saskia is everything you imagine, an actress to be, vain and self absorbed, she cares for no-one but herself which suits Robert down to the ground, as he is also quite a horrible man, interested in his job, he takes for granted what a lovely person his wife is.

I read this book in a day, I literally couldn’t put it down. There are so many quick-witted moments in the story as well as scintillating scenes making it flow at a lively pace. A fun and believable tale about friendship, deceit and riddled with drama, this book is a clever, edgy tale about strong women with a fabulous twist, Jane’s back with another cracker of a story.

You can pre-order My Sweet Revenge from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 12th January 2017.

Jane Fallon Reveals New Book – My Sweet Revenge

My Sweet RevengeI’m delighted to see that Jane Fallon is kicking off the new year with a new book called ‘My Sweet Revenge’.

The story of ‘My Sweet Revenge’ is –

I want to make my husband fall back in love with me.

Let me explain. This isn’t an exercise in 1950s wifeydom. I haven’t been reading articles in old women’s magazines.’Twenty ways to keep your man’. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

I want him to fall back in love with me so that when I tell him to get the hell out of my life he’ll care. He won’t just think, ‘Oh good’.

I want it to hurt.

Paula has had Robert’s back since they got together as drama students.
She gave up her dreams so he could make it.
Now he’s one of the nation’s most popular actors.
And Paula’s just discovered he’s having an affair.

She’s going to remind Robert just what he’s sacrificing.
And then she’s going to break his heart like he broke hers.
It will be her greatest acting role ever.

Revenge is sweet.
Isn’t it?

After loving her last book, ‘Strictly Between Us’, I can’t wait to read ‘My Sweet Revenge’.

You can pre-order My Sweet Revenge from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 12th January 2017.

Strictly Between Us By Jane Fallon

Strictly Between Us’’Strictly Behind Us’ is the latest book by Jane Fallon.

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…

Jane Fallon is back with another great story, a story about friendship and lying, this deceitful tale was impossible to put down. The story is about Tasmin, who has been best friends with Michelle, since they were teenagers, she can never imagine Michelle not in her life and when Michelle marries Patrick, she considers the pair of them more as family than friends. But then one day, Tasmin hears through the grapevine that Patrick is a bit of a womaniser and desperate to find out whether there is any truth in it or not, she asks her assistant Bea to help honeytrap Patrick and find out if there is any truth in the rumours. Then follows on a story, filled with drama, illicit affairs and compromising positions.

The story is seen primarily through the eyes of Tasmin, a woman who likes to be in control in life, happy in her career as a television executive, everything is going well, the only thing that is missing is a man. I did find myself feeling sorry for Tasmin, as she tried to find love as well as look out for her best friend, but then when things spiralled out of control and she finds herself in trouble, my feelings did change and I didn’t feel as sorry as her, infact I began to dislike her as the story progressed. The story is also seen through the eyes of Bea, who is Tasmin’s assistant and I thought this a genius idea, as it turned the story completely on its head, as we saw a completely different side to the angelic character who shines in Tasmin’s eyes.

Presented in a stylish cover, I loved this story and in Jane’s trademark style there is always a twist that catches the reader off guard. Filled with likeable and dislikable characters, the book is a compelling and cleverly written story about friendship and just how far you will go to protect your friendship. A fast moving story with edgy plot-lines and divided loyalties, ‘Strictly Between Us’ is an intriguing tale about love and lies.

You can buy Strictly Between Us from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.
