Goodness, Grace and Me by Julie Houston

When Harriet’s husband, Nick, throws in his safe, but boring job in order to set up a new business during the current recession, Harriet is distraught. More so when she realises Amanda, her and best friend Grace’s old enemy from school is Nick’s new boss’s wife and will be accompanying Nick on his business trips to Italy. How will Nick not succumb to the ruthless charms of the utterly gorgeous Amanda? Knowing Nick is being seduced is bad enough, but when Grace falls madly in love with Sebastian, Amanda’s precious, much younger son, it can only mean trouble ahead.

Determined to fight for her man, Harriet’s seduction techniques go into overdrive. Unfortunately she is hampered in her attempts by two bolshy teenagers, an increasingly eccentric mother and a job teaching horrible children. Not to mention something very strange going on at the bottom of her garden!

Can Harriet save her marriage, and also her friendship with Grace? And what will happen if Nick’s new venture fails especially now that Harriet’s worst nightmare appears to be coming true…?

‘Goodness, Grace and Me’ tells the story of two friends, Harriet and Grace.
Harriet is happily married to the devastatingly handsome Nick, who is the love of her life. But whilst her romantic life is good, work and family pressures are causing the two problems.
Grace is trying to conceive, but that’s easier said than done, especially when her husband is more intent on bedding other women.
Can friendship help them through life’s problems?

Through 300 pages you find yourself caught up in the turmoil that is the women’s lives.
Within this tale of romance, there is also a strong element of friendship, an inner strength from the two friends, that is felt throughout!

Harriet is a wonderful character, always there whenever someone needs her, offering a helping hand and a shoulder to cry on.
Although she has her own problems to deal with, she always puts others first.

Amanda was my least favourite character, I suppose you could say, I loved to hate her.
She has everything going for her and doesn’t she know it, she would often flaunt herself around others,

A humorous, heart warming read.
Snuggle up this winter with ‘Goodness, Grace and Me’
