Friendships and secrets…


***Update*** so excited to discover that my quote has been used in the publicity materials:  “I LOVE Marcie Steele’s writing”


Marcie Steele has a fabulous way with words and the ability to craft her story with pace, depth and emotional attachment. There’s something rather special about this story of secrets and friendship that goes beyond the usual “chick-lit”…

This book is a feel-good tale of friendships and relationships – following your heart and not taking others for granted.

I can’t wait for her next book to come out (hurry up and write it, please Marcie!!

About this book

Best friends tell each other everything… right?
Sam and Louise have been best friends since they hung their coats side by side on the first day of primary school. Now in their thirties, they’re just as close, but life is a little bit more complicated…

On the outside, thirty-something Sam seems to have it all; the gorgeous husband, the beautiful home and the flourishing business. But things are not quite as rosy as they seem. So when handsome stranger, Dan, walks into her life, Sam finds his attentions hard to resist.

Louise might seem like life and soul of the party, but her outgoing exterior hides her sadness about the heartbreak in her past. She just wants someone to love – but all Louise gets left with is a quick fumble with an ex at the end of the night.

When a glamorous face from the past returns to shake things up, things get even more complicated for Sam and Louise. And just when they need each other the most, they’ve reason to wonder whether they ever really knew each other at all.

An emotional and uplifting tale of love, secrets and the importance of having a best friend.

I am obsessed with books.  In fact, I'd rather be reading than doing anything else.   I enjoy trying out new books and new authors; I do like to "mix and match" genres.  I often have access to books before they are published and would welcome the opportunity to review most books... just not horror or sci-fi, please :)
