My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As her first novel, Scottish Indie Author Lacey Dearie has created an entertaining read with The Tangled Web. With laugh-out-loud sections and a colourful spectrum of characters, I enjoyed this book which is a fun story, interwoven with several sub-plots. The book is cleverly constructed to include blogs, subsequent comments and email interactions, which are intertwined within the main body of the book. For me, as a reader who gets bored with too much detail, Lacey describes her scenes well, imparting just enough information to allow you to fill in the blanks and see the setting within your mind’s eye.
I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys chick-lit with humour and characters whose mistakes and choices mirror those we sometimes make in real life.
