Summary

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 best seller: 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.

Critic reviews

"Her characters are as strong as her plot lines, and the dialogue sparkles and rings true." ( The Irish Times)

Massive disappointment

I love Marian Keys but this is a complete cop out! Do not waste your 4 hours on it. Had to give it a star to register but really wouldn't give it any starts

Scintillating, was there really only one reader?!

I heard Marian Keyes on Radio 4 and resolved to listen to a book of hers on Audible (starting with the earliest).. I shall now listen to the rest - fantastic - and I'm not usually a fiction fan..

good, but not great

I like Marian, I think she's funny.. and I've read all her books.. and I think that this one is one of the mediocre ones. it's not bad, but it's not that great either. It is average.. Would I recommend that you download it? well, if you got 10 dollars to spare, why not?! it's a good listen. :/
