Product Description

Chosen as The Yorkshire Post’s Top 5: Pick of the Best Books!

This "witty and pacy" character-driven masterpiece is "reminiscent of BRIDGET JONES" and proves that there really are two sides to every story. "A fast and easy poolside read!"

After spending her twenties sailing the globe, making love on fine white sand, and thinking only of today, Teri Meyer returns to Yorkshire – and to studying. That’s when she discovers John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester, and poet of all things depraved. What she doesn’t realise is even beyond his grave, his influence over her is extraordinary. To hell with the consequences.

Having gone out on a limb to get old friend Teri a job at the university at which she teaches, it doesn’t take long for Lee Harper to recognise a pattern. Wherever Teri goes, whatever she does, every selfish choice she makes, it’s all setting her up for a nasty fall. But Teri’s not the sort to heed a warning, so Lee has no choice but to stand by and watch. And besides, she has her own life to straighten out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reading "A Falling Friend" is like panning for gold... 11 August 2016
By John Williamson - Published on
Verified Purchase
I started reading “A Falling Friend” many weeks ago but had to stop because of a number of other pressing matters which had to be tended to. Normally in such a case I would likely not return to the abandoned book…but this one was different. This one I returned to. I remembered that reading “A Falling Friend” was like panning for gold: on every page or sometimes more than once per page I would come across some very funny turn of phrase or quip or verbal usage – hilarious in many instances. Because the authors are writing in a very British colloquial style, an American has to pay close attention in order to not miss anything; unfortunately, I’m sure I did miss a few Britishisms, but at the same time I did manage to expand my vocabulary. (Did you know that the simple past of “spin” is “span”, not “spun”?)

Another feature of the writing was that every paragraph is densely packed with ideas – descriptions, jokes, references – and this made it impossible to skim. I can certify that I read every word of the book; I had no choice. Because each paragraph and page is so densely packed with ideas, one is forced to concentrate intently. This does not, however, slow down the reading; to the contrary, the reading goes very fast and this may be partly due to the very smooth editing. The sentences just tumbled out – one after another. There were no hang-ups – instances where one had to go back and puzzle out what the authors were trying to convey. Once I returned to the book, I zipped through sixty or so chapters (some of them are quite short) in just a couple of days.

For me, the story really took off when Teri married Dan and had to contend with Dan’s daughter Victoria and the conflict arising out of that triangle. The various conflicts arising out of Teri’s personal choices and the consequences thereof were the engine that drove the book. Teri was a piece of work, a unique character. Did she deserve what she got in the end? You’ll have to judge that for yourself. (As for the very end – the final page – the authors pull off the rare feat of letting you know exactly what happens next but making it look like a cliffhanger. Don’t try this at home.)

We Americans are always amazed at how congenitally polite the British are. Some of the situations presented in “A Falling Friend” would have engendered much coarser language and perhaps more violent reactions had the book been written by an American. One wonders what the authors have in mind for the sequel. Higher stakes, more tension, more chaos…one can only hope. They certainly have the language skills to pull it off. Looking forward.

5.0 out of 5 stars A falling friend: a story about choices and consequences 15 May 2016
By Ms. Laurie J. Bell - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A falling friend is certainly that, a story about two friends who believe the other needs help. This is a terrific story told from two alternate points of view. It’s hard to work out who is right and who is wrong in this story as both women believe themselves to know better than the other. Two completely different people, it’s hard to believe they can be friends and yet they are and they both want their friend to heed their advice. They are at a point in time in their life where major decisions take place. Lee and Teri work at the same University but that is all that is the same about them.

Both Lee and Teri make decisions based on their ego but Lee is more observant to the world around her. She can see when Teri’s decision take her down the wrong path and can predict the dire consequences of her behaviour, consequences that Teri does not seem to see coming. As in everything life, Lee cannot force Teri to see what is coming, she can only chose to stand beside her friend and support her choices.

This was a fun story that really brings to light how a lack of empathy can blind a person to the consequences of their own choices. Choices they will then have to live with forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous fun and beautifully human 27 May 2016
By Helen Kidston - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a truly entertaining novel, great fun and witty in a way that is so acutely insightful to human nature it might be painful if it wasn't so kindly written. These friends are beautifully flawed, arguably one more than the other, but they are also so real you feel you are having a conversation with them and that they are your friends also. That's no small thing to achieve. The style and verve reminded me a lot of Bridget Jones, but this book stands in its own right too. I really hope for a sequel to see what happens next, but if not I will settle for whatever these talented authors want to give us next.

Witty. Funny. Great character study of two friends with completely different personalities and lives. The authors are British, which gave the book even more snarky remarks that had me rolling. The book took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions that brought me back to my days of school friends, and how wonderful and awful females can be!

4.0 out of 5 stars especially in the love department, I did at times wish I could ... 7 January 2017
By sarah hardy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
A Falling Friend is a story told in alternating chapters between two friends, Teri and Lee.

Teri and Lee are quite opposite in personalties. Teri is definitely the more selfish one and I think she forgets that everything doesn’t revolve around her. She expects everyone to drop everything at the drop of a hat for her and overall expects a lot more than she really should.

Though both women have their issues, especially in the love department, I did at times wish I could bang their heads together. They seemed to be quite immature when it comes to the matter of love. Not sure whether it’s a good or bad thing though that I think a lot of women will actually relate to the pair. They did remind me of myself when I was younger, though luckily I think I am more mature than that now. Or maybe thats just wishful thinking!

I did find the story slightly slow to start with but as I got more into it I started to enjoy the trials and tribulations of what life was throwing at both ladies and it turned into an enjoyable and at times humorous read.

Very glad to see that there is another book on it’s way.

My thanks to the authors for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
