My rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
A stand-alone novella from the author of Manipulated Lives.
A perfect friend … or a perfect impostor?
Alexa is an energetic and charismatic professional and the new member of a Parisian PR company where she quickly befriends her colleagues Rosie and Jack. She brings a much-needed breath of fresh air into the office and ambitiously throws herself into her new job and friendships.
But is Alexa all she claims to be?
As her life intertwines with Rosie and Jack’s, they must all decide what separates truth from fiction. Will the stories that unfold unite or divide them? Can first impressions ever be trusted?
In this original novella, H.A. Leuschel evokes the powerful hold of appearances and what a person is prepared to do to keep up the façade. If you like thought-provoking and compelling reads with intriguing characters, My Sweet Friend is for you.

‘Oh, don’t tell me she’s already wanting to give you a make-over.’ She eyed me suspiciously. ‘Don’t trust her,’ she said, leaning closer to my ear, so that no one else could hear. ‘There’s something about her I don’t like,’ she added, her eyes a steady, calm stare.
This book introduces you to Alexa, new employee at a Parisian PR company.
