Book Description

4 Mar 2004
Amy's written a bestseller, the ultimate shopping and shagging novel only without the shopping. She should be enjoying the money, the fame, the eight-page spread in Hello! And maybe she would be if only she could tell her mother. But the woman's so over-bearing and puritanical, Amy hasn't even told her she smokes. So instead, Amy does what she does best, she hides, protected by her pseudonym. But for how long, now that the tabloids have launched a crusade to uncover Marsha Mellow's true identity? Being found out isn't her only worry. There's the sex-crazed ex who inspired this mess in the first place, the boss that she'd hate if he weren't so irritatingly gorgeous and the growing realisation that everyone else in her life seems to have a dirty little secret of their own. "Marsha Mellow and Me" shows that keeping secrets can be really painful and painfully funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty humour at its best 15 Nov 2004
Having read the reviews on this book, I simply had to go out and get it. And trust me - I was in no way disappointed! I love the more scandalous of stories with a bit of humour, and Maria Beaumont has perfectly delivered with this title.
Amy Bickerstaff has written a book - a dirty book, at that. All because her self-obsessed sci-fi author boyfriend dumped her, and writing was a way to deal with the anger. But since her book was published (all due to her sister) more problems have arisen. Very well, so the book is a bestseller, dubbed as 'filth' and 'the teen sex textbook' by much of the press. But Amy has not even told her old-fashioned mother that she smokes, let alone that she has earned a fortune from a book all about sex.
There are plenty of laughs in this book, and amusing yet practical characters. Will Amy finally come out and admit that she is Marsha Mellow? Working as an secretary at the offices of small publication Working Girl, the secret is bound to come out sometime...
Scandalous, funny, and simply terrific. This is one of the best books I have ever read. It is guaranteed to keep you amused, and you will not be able to put it down. A definite must-read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful,Wicked and Witty 4 Mar 2004
Great book, funny story and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. You thought Bridget Jones was good, you should read this one. Just about and ordinary girl, with an outrageous secret(like all of us!). Not only did it have me laughing out loud, but it kept me wanting more from page to page, I could hardly put it down,so cant wait for the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good everyone stole it!!! 28 Mar 2004
By A Customer
I really enjoyed this book. It made me snicker, it made my mum giggle when she borrowed it and my boyfriend guffawed throughout when he had it in custody. I am now in the process of trying to sneak into my friends house to get it back as she has been *borrowing* it for some time too.
It is a really humane book that is bound to make you laugh and wince in sympathy with the character. Like all of us the lead lady is scared of the things she shouldn't be and braver than she ever realised. Well worth the purchase price... and if Sophie is reading this - BUY YOUR OWN!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book blew me away! 26 Mar 2004
Initially attracted by the spunky cover, I'm proud to say that I've never laughed out load so much in public places before. The amusing exploits of Marsha, her friends and family have made me look stupid as I tried to stifle laughter on a train, on a bus and even, I'm ashamed to say, at my desk in the office!
I'd recommend this book to all; men, women, cats, dogs ... I'm sure Nuns would even approve. Buy this book now - yes NOW then lock yourself away and try reading it without laughing; it's like trying to say a famous brand of pate without saying.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Super, Smashing, Great! 11 Mar 2004
This book is fab! The funniest book I have read - Beware though this book had a habit of making me laugh out loud, on a train - slightly embarassing but in a quiet office - not so clever!!
Let's hope Maria Beaumont writes another book soon!!
Buy this book now.
