Angie Romeo is living the Australian dream. With a wealthy and loving husband, good friends, a caring (albeit domineering) mother, a luxury apartment on the beach, and a fulfilling career, she should not want for anything … although…
Sure, like any of us, she has a few niggling worries – like crumbs crunching underfoot on the kitchen floor just as the guests are arriving. But crumbs can be quickly swept under the kitchen mat before popping the champagne and ushering in the visitors. Can’t they?
Especially for visitors who are best friends and family. After all, best friends and family would never let you down… Right?
However, when Angie’s perfect world starts to crash, some of the people on whom she thought she could depend appear to be right bastards.
And some of the right bastards could just become her best friends, or maybe even lovers.
In order to learn who is who, she just has to learn to stop sweeping things under the carpet and follow the process: The process of life.
Praise and five star reviews for Jaci Byrne’s debut novel,
‘Best Friends and Bastards.’
This is not the type of book I would normally read (I am more crime psychological thriller type) but this had me turning the pages. Ms. Sara J. Green (Australia)
I really enjoyed reading this book, it was funny, sad and I could get into Angie’s world with her best friend and the bastard.
Her relationship with her Mom was so believable. Look forward to reading more. Paula (Brooksville Florida)
I really enjoyed this book. Jaci Byrne writes with the confidence of a bestselling author. I wish her much success and hope she writes many more novels. Perry Martin (Tustin CA USA)
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, a lovely relaxing holiday novel. I love the descriptions used by the author and especially the detail with where scenes are set in and around Australia and Bali. It helps put you right there in the story. A great novel on relationships and the unfolding of life. Belinda
A book for the hopeless romantic in you. Written with great sense of humour and with twists and turns to keep you intrigued and entertained. Kjuuurs
I adored this book! Not usually a chick lit reader, but this was intelligent, funny with a profound spiritual message that sets this book above its genre. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Vanessa
I loved this book in spite of the fact that I don’t normally read in this genre. I loved it so much that I encouraged my friends and my family of academics to read it and they all loved it! It’s an easy read and I found myself looking forward to ‘getting back to it’. christiana gibb
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. From the 1st page I was drawn into Angie Romeo’s world and I could not stop reading. Can’t wait for your next book. TeenaC
