Product Description

About the Author

Hayley Coulson grew up in Essex under the cloud of stiletto jokes, knowing that the only way to make it through life was to laugh at it. After a year and a half of living in Portugal, she has been residing in Cambridge shire for the last six years, travelling back to Essex as frequently as the border control and quarantine would let her through, to spend quality time with family and friends whom she adores. Working in Communications for a big, multi-national company, Hayley learnt the importance of reaching an audience and sharing stories, so it was no surprise that when Hayley became redundant in the credit crunch of 2008, she chose writing as her new career. 'Best of Friends?' is Hayley's first novel but with a whole host of other ideas in the pipeline, she knows that there's so many more stories yet to tell. Oh, and she's never once danced round her handbag. . .

Format: Paperback
With it's cast of endearing (and ever so slightly nutty!) characters, Best of Friends? is a superb first novel from new author, Hayley Coulson.

The story follows Nicky and her friends as they struggle through the 9 to 5, counting the hours until the weekend. Their exploits in pubs and clubs will have you cringing as they recount the hazy memories of their night-before activities, laughing as they vow to drink less (which let's face it, we all make THAT promise whilst nursing a hangover!), and sympathising with them as they struggle not to repeat their bad behaviour (usually by swearing off the intake of shots!).

Hayley's book is a compulsive read which you will not be able to put down. Her laugh-out-loud moments are plentiful and only serve to make you love the characters even more, despite the fact that you are often laughing at them rather than with them!

Best of Friends? is definitely this summer's hottest read!

Warning: Do not go out in public and read this book, it's too embarrassing when you laugh out loud!

A great story with great characters.

I warmed to Nicky with her assortment of friends straight away so after reading a quarter of the book, I could not put it down and had to find out how it ended.

I am looking forward to more books from this writer.

"Best of Friends" is funny, witty, cringe-worthy, endearing, captivating and so true to life. Hayley translates friendships, relationships, break-ups, make-ups and cock-ups beautifully. You can't help but warm to both Nicky and Marcus and the friendships they share.

Anyone that has a best friend , group of friends or quirky friends will relate to this book. In fact, I strongly suggest you buy your friends this book!

From the 1st page I couldn't put the damn thing down.

A fantastic start to a promising career as an author.

This book has it all - a must-read! Can't wait till the next book. Keep them coming Hayley.

Well, this is my first time writing a review on Amazon and I'm doing it because Best of Friends is such a great book.

As other reviewers have mentioned, this book is FUNNY. I laughed out loud and cringed with embarrassment when some of the scenes struck a little close to home.

I see that this is the Author's first book and I hope that she writes many more. I would definitely by another book by Hayley Coulson and recommend this book to anyone who likes a great story, great characters and who wants to truly enjoy a great book.

This was one of the best books I have read in a long time. It captured me from the very first page to the last which is unusual for me and I read it in 3 days. The song titles, films, characters and situations will remind you of someone or a situation in your own past. Get on and buy it, you won't regret it but be warned, you might have to put it down for a while to recover from your aching sides! I can't believe that this is Hayley Coulson's first book; I can't wait for the next one.

I absolutely loved this book! It had me laughing out loud and I thought that the characters were so believeable - reminded me of my own misspent youth! If you fancy a good read, whether on the beach or tucked up on the sofa with a cuppa, I highly recommend this. I read it one sitting and was up til the early hours! Enjoy!

Can't wait for more books by this author.

This is Hayley Coulson's first novel and what a fantastic start to her new career.

'Best of Friends?' will have you smiling and laughing all the way through. You will certainly be able to relate to the situations they get themselves into either from personal experience or by your own friends!!!

I'm really looking forward to reading more books by Hayley.
