The Accidental Bestseller


"The best way to have a friend is to be one."




Looking for a book to get lost in?  This one is about women's dreams and goals, women's issues, and women's secrets.  The characters are everyday women leading everyday lives and pursuing their common interest of writing.  Then the bottom falls out and one of the women sees her life fall apart.  As her three friends rush to her side they all eventually "get real" with each other, and secrets, long hidden, flow from each of them.

Are you and I so fortunate to have our BFFs come to our aide, make us food, hold our hand, pull us back to life?  Would we even let them know if we needed them???  Remember people cannot help us if they don't know we need help.   Even the main character of this book retreated and tried to hide away. Would we drop everything and show up for a friend in monumental ways?  

Although people may have hundreds of Facebook or Twitter friends, they say we are "lucky" if we have 5 real friends in the world.  Do you?

This is a fun book to read. You can probably find it at your library if you enjoy reading women's fiction and stories about friendship.

    1. Sandy, this is definitely a girls book. You'll recognize yourself somewhere in there I bet. I know I saw myself.

  4. Sounds like a great book. More important, you made me think about who my best friends are. Do I have 5? I guess if I have to ask, I don't. Hmm. I have to think about this more. I had two best friends who have faded out of my life in recent years, much to my regret. So sad when you have them and lose them. Anyway, I'll check out the book for sure.

    1. It is sad when special ones fade away. I have found new ones will usually fade in and fill the void if we truly want it.
