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.

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!

I have to admit that I didn't have high hopes for this book - the cover makes it look very chick-lit and having outgrown that brand of fiction somewhat, I was expecting to give up on it fairly quickly.
I was wrong. Marsha Mellow and Me turned out to be an entertaining and very funny page-turner. I have to admit that it did remind me of Bridget Jones in style, but that's no bad thing. In my opinion, many a book has been written since Helen Fielding's contribution to the chick-lit genre that are an insult to intelligence. But not this one.
The story revolves around Tanya. She's written a dirty novel under the name of Marsha Mellow which, she hoped, would keep her identity secret. However, after The Mail get hold of a copy and blast it for it's explicit content, Tanya unexpectedly finds her book at the top of the best seller charts and herself at the centre of a witch hunt to uncover Marsha Mellow's true identity. Add to that a mother who dresses like Edwina Curry (not unlike Bridget's, it has to be said), an adulterous father, a love rat, a gorgeous boss, a gay best friend and a crocked private investigater and you're in for a riotous ride. And trust me, it's as action packed as you're going to get in a book of this kind.
My conclusion: it's fast, fun and a little bit rude. It's not going to stay with you for a long time after you've read it, win any prizes or stir any strong emotions, but if you stick with it (and please do because the very beginning can be a little off-putting!) I'm sure you'll be glad you did. It would make an excellent film, come to think of it.

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!

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.....
