  • A Delightful Debut!

    What a delightful debut! I've loved getting to know Bea and learning all about her life. Bea is just coasting along in life. She has a job she doesn't enjoy overly much, a hobby she hasn't got enough time to spend developing and friends who are getting paired off almost daily - or so it seems. Her friend Peter is always there, but he's too good a mate to dally with, and following a bad experience with her first love, Bea avoids getting into relationships with friends, but perhaps now is the time to get herself back into the dating pool .. isn't it? As long as she avoids Peter, it'll all be fine . . . Bea is a very normal character; she has doubts and anxiety just like the rest of us and I loved getting to know her, flaws and all. She isn't perfect. Not great at knowing what she wants but quite sure what she doesn't - or, at least, she thinks she is. With a great cast of supporting characters and a well-plotted storyline, this is a book you can settle down with and really get into. I'm so glad I'm well past the days of boyfriends and dating - oh, the angst! Very humorous and engaging as well as an honest portrayal of life, I've rather enjoyed this novel, and will certainly look out for more from Holly McCulloch. A good read, well worth 4*.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Just fine

    An easy read with an easy to follow (if predictable) plot. The protagonist, Bea, is a bit adrift in her life, isn't particularly happy, but starts to do something about it. She has the usual cast of great girl friends, and an emotional hurdle to get to her love interest - all standard stuff with no surprises but decently written so I didn't have to roll my eyes once. I found Bea a bit bland, and was disappointed that there didn't feel like much urst between her and Peter. In fact I felt like more effort/ description/ pages were given over to Bea's friends than Peter. So in the end it felt a bit lacklustre. Fine to read once, and decent price (on sale) but won't be reading again.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Short but sweet

    Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for my eARC of Just Friends which is the debut novel from author Holly McCulloch. The book is in the friends to lovers genre and is a quirky, quick little read with true to life, likeable characters and a heroine in Bea who could be any one of us! Written from Bea's POV, Just Friends is essentially a snap shot of her life over a year or so, with all its ups and downs and relationship dramas. It wasn't complicated and I enjoyed rreading it as an interlude between some other 'heavier' books. My biggest criticism is that it's too short - the book basically ends just as it gets going. Other than that, a nice little summer read during an afternoon at the beach 😊.

    Thanks for your feedback!
