Review of That's What Friends Are For by Marcie Steele - Four *


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. 


The cover is a little misleading - yes, this is a chick lit book but it is a much deeper story than most.

Louise and Sam have been friends since childhood and are now in their mid-thirties. The story revolves around them, their family, friends and the market hall where they work.

The book is all about lies, secrets and trust. Secrets are told, lies uncovered and it's the reactions of the characters which hold you in. No one is left untouched and how they adjust to the revealed truths makes for a great read!
