Description

Jane Green, author of the best-sellers Second Chance and Straight Talking, examines friendships and their limits in her highly entertaining novel Bookends. On the shelf, but still best friends ...Cath is scatty, messy and guarded.

While Si is impossibly tidy, bitchy and desperate for a man of his own.

They are total opposites - but equally unlucky in love. And they've stuck together through thick and thin. Because that's what best friends do. So when their beautiful friend Portia - the undisputed queen of their group of friends at university - steps back into their lives, after a ten year gap, her reappearance tests both Cath and Si's friendship to the limit. What does Portia want? Will she be a force for good in their lives, or something darker? And will Cath and Si ever get lucky in love?

This one was quite a surprise. I bought it because it was cheap, and I liked teh title. It's a very good book with surprisingly deep issues towards the end. I liked the fact that the main story wasn't a romance, but how to succeed in your dream business once you dare to make the move. It's about friendships, and how they can put strains on your own personal life. And about worshipping a childhood diva. It's fantastic, and enjoyable by people who don't 'do' chick lit normally.

When I first read this I really identified with the dream of the main character, I would love to own my own bookshop/coffee shop. Jane Green rights great Chick Lit, perfect to curl up on the beach with.

This is a great read, as all Jane Green books generally are and it has a nice little twist near the end. I like this one most as its also my ambition to have a bookshop.
