Let’s Not Be Friends is the first book I’ve read by this author.
Perfect for fans of Jo Watson, Mhairi McFarlane and Portia MacIntosh.
City girl Sophie has married the prince (or landed gentry – close enough), moved to his pile (which is more accurate a description than she’d anticipated) and is set to live happily ever after – until she finds the other half of her perfect life in the stables with the stable girl, and they’re definitely not grooming the horses.
Shocked and appalled, Sophie’s no happier to learn that she’s supposed to ‘just get on with it’. After all, according to her mother-in-law, she got the title . . . they even overlooked her family’s ‘new money’ status.
What a lovely family she’s married into! But what’s a girl to do when she’s still in love? Make it work or leg it as fast as she can? Either way, the mother-in-law will not be coming to tea!
What readers are saying about the book:
‘A perfect love story’
‘Humorous, light and romantic!’

My Review of Let’s Not Be Friends
When Sophie fell in love with James and got married, she bent over backwards, giving up her job and her city life, to move to the countryside and work alongside him on his property. But apparently, this wasn’t enough for James – she found him cheating on him. When he apologized, she agreed to give her marriage a second chance, if they met with a counselor. But unfortunately, he couldn’t keep his end of the bargain! What’s more, her mother-in-law berated Sophie and let slip that James had only married her for her father’s money. Sophie finally leaves and with the support of her parents, starts rebuilding her life again.
Sophie has the courage and the self-respect to walk out. While the support of her parents and the fact that she could walk back into her old job cannot be discounted, she actually took a stand for herself and her future.
Sophie gradually begins to make friends with the people in her building, including the mysterious Elliot. Will she find love again?
Told in the first person, the story is told with humour and doesn’t drag at all.
I enjoyed reading this story of how it’s possible to build your life again even from pain and heartbreak.
